Guidelines for Facilitating a Community-Based Support Group Meeting on Infant and Young Child Feeding

Alive & Thrive is an initiative in Vietnam aimed at improving infant and young child feeding by increasing rates of exclusive breastfeeding and improving complementary feeding practices.

The guidelines in this document aim to support community-based workers (CBWs) in organizing and facilitating infant and young child feeding support group (IYCFSG) meetings in the community in an efficient, effective manner. Through these meetings, mothers and caregivers can experience an environment open to discussion and learning about infant and young child feeding (IYCF) information and practices. The guidelines provide specific steps – what to do, how to do it, and which tools to use.
