Project title “Role of women empowerment in reducing infant and child morality and improving women and children’s health”. Associate Supervisor. o Irteza Islam. Project title “Infant and Young Child-feeding (IYCF) Practices in Urban Slums of Bangladesh: A Mixed Method Study” (PhD student). Improper complementary feeding (CF) practice is one of the main reasons for malnutrition among Bangladeshi children aged less than two years. In this context, using the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO), this study assessed the CF practices among mothers in four selected slums (Tejgoan, Rayerbazar, Beribadh, and Jafrabad) of Dhaka ://

  Sub-optimal nutrition among children remains a problem across South Asia (SA). Appropriate complementary feeding practices (CFP) can greatly reduce this risk. The primary objective of this systematic review (SR) of CF studies was to assess timing, dietary diversity, meal frequency and influencing factors in children under two in Bangladesh. Searches included English-language research Generally, the recommended feeding practices are not followed in the urban or rural communities in Bangladesh (6). Moreover, due to limited health services, the recommendations are also not fol-lowed in urban slums. To the best of our knowledge, no studies have been undertaken to gather information on CF practices among slum mothers in ?hn

We tested the effectiveness of a home-based intervention using Community Health Workers (CHWs) on EBF for six months in urban poor settings in Kenya.

Bangladesh is one of the poorest developing countries in the world where infant and young children (IYC) suffer from extremely high levels of malnutrition resulting in high morbidity and mortality rates. IYC are defined here as birth to 3 years old.

Due to the double burden of climate variability and urbanisation, longer and more severe floods affect people living in urban slums, with IYC. Background The impacts of optimal infant feeding practices on diarrhoea have been documented in some developing countries, but not in countries with high diarrhoea mortality as reported by the World Health Organisation/United Nations Children’s Fund.
