From the Editor

Issue 34 of Field Exchange has a special focus on infant and young child feeding in emergencies (IFE) and is dedicated to the memory of Tom Marchione.

From the Editor

This issue of Field Exchange features four field articles about community based therapeutic care of the severely malnourished, a type of programming that is increasingly being rolled out by humanitarian agencies.

HT was adopted as previous experiences of using the centre based therapeutic feeding model had been poor with high defaulter rates and low coverage.
