GAIN has recently published two new working papers detailing lessons learned from six year Infant and Young Child Nutrition (IYCN) program.

The papers were launched at our one day #Nutrition Now: 1,000 Days Symposium in London.

The two papers outline in detail challenges met and strategies used across 23 projects in 17 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The projects are an innovative mix of public and private models and combine proven infant interventions, such as the promotion of breast feeding, with novel market-based strategies.

The papers each focus on a different element of GAINs approach:
Paper 1 examines lessons learned regarding effective public and private sector business models for production and delivery of complementary feeding products and fortified foods
Paper 2 analyses what we’ve learned about driving consumer awareness and behaviour change to ensure good feeding practices and uptake of complementary feeding products

Working Paper 2: Promoting optimal infant feeding practices and effective use of complementary food for infants: Delivery lessons
