Photos of Mid-Process Assessment of the Community Infant and Young Child Feeding Package in Nigeria

Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), with support from two USAID-funded global nutrition projects (IYCN and SPRING), has made a significant investment in the adaptation of the Community Infant and Young Child Feeding (C-IYCF) Counseling Package to the Nigerian context.
