Supporting Baby Friendly assessments during Covid-19

The UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative has produced a series of statements on supporting Baby Friendly assessments during the Covid-19 outbreak. We recommend that all practitioners follow latest updates from the UK governments and the World Health Organization (WHO) as these could change as more information becomes available.

We have also produced a guide for local authorities on infant feeding in partnership with First Steps Nutrition Trust and the National Infant Feeding Network (NIFN).
