Implementing national policies and guidelines that will ensure adequate support for mothers and families to continue breastfeeding and safely formula feed infants during emergencies

  • What role to emergency shelter workers play in supporting mothers and families to safely feed their infants?
  • What skills and knowledge are required for health professionals to support a mother through perceived low supply during an emergency situation?
  • How much water and cooking fuel does a formula feeding or exclusively expressing mother need to be prepared for an emergency?
This one-day seminar aims to educate policy makers, key decision makers, professional organisations, community support workers, and health professionals of the information, support and resources that are required to support infant feeding during emergency situations and advocate for the development of appropriate policies and guidelines.
