This is a comprehensive online course for health workers, providing them with the knowledge and skills necessary for monitoring and recommending different feeding approaches to mothers, as well as women who are pregnant.
In this self-paced, free online course, the students will use contextualized knowledge for developing a better understanding of the underlying concepts involved in infant and young child feeding.
The course begins with facts about infant and young child feeding, the significance of IYCF during various phases of a child's life, moving on to complementary feeding, maternal nutrition, IYCF in the context of HIV and IYCF in emergencies, before finally instructing on the approaches and recommendations of WHO and UNICEF, when it comes to healthy feeding practices for infants and young children.
Employing a take-home approach, the course also features printable flash cards for community health workers that they can take along for the purpose of educating their communities regarding IYCF and safe feeding practices.
This self-paced course has been designed in a manner that enhances understanding of the core concepts and provides easy to access learning materials. The course uses a range of study material such as pre-recorded videos, lecture slides, quizzes and assignments, and is developed by a team of dedicated health education experts.
