Conducting a group session on positioning the baby

Dear Friends, 

Greetings rom Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India(BPNI)!

This quarter we bring to you field level report from Delhi, India . As part of this project BPNI has done several advocacy meetings in the past in states like Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand. BPNI's advocacy could convince the state governments to build their capcity by training their human resource as national trainers on Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF)skilled counseling. Training is one of BPNI's forte over the years, till date BPNI's has trained more than 45000 health care professionals and workers in India. 

In this report we would like to share insights from our ongoing training of trainers in Delhi,India at University College of Medical Sciences & GTB Hospital,Goverment of India. This national training is organised by BPNI for creating 5 national trainers from  4 different states in India. The states which are here to build their capacity include Jharkhand(2), Uttar Pradesh(1), Maharashtra(1)and Delhi(1). These 5 goverment and private officials will be trained as national trainers over 14 days of training in which they will get training for 7 days and then they will train a team of 19 IYCF counseling specialist for next 7 days. This will help them exercise their skills learnt over 7 days of extensive training.

Post the training they will help their respective states to conduct further state level capacity building training on IYCF counseling. These trainers will reach out to middle level trainers and field level health workers in their respective states helping us creating many more breastfeeding counselors. 

The training has started from 8th November 2016 and will be completed on 21 November 2016. We wish to conduct many more training of training in more states or a holistic coverage. ( This training has been a collaborative effort of BPNI, Department of Peadiatrics ,UCMS, GTB Hospital,IBFAN and SIDA along with limitted global giving funds)

Thank you. 

Best Regards,

BPNI Team
