BFS+: Process evaluation of an integrative health approach for lactating women and their babies babies in humanitarian emergencies
Our overall objective is to strengthen the implementation, effectiveness, and acceptability of a scalable and integrated health intervention being delivered to new South Sudanese mothers and infants living in Nguenyyiel refugee camp in Gambella, Ethiopia. Specifically, we aim to: 1. Use a mixed methods approach to explore the uptake, acceptability and participation of women in the Baby Friendly Spaces (BFS) program. 2. Explore the needs and experiences of staff delivering the BFS program. 3. Assess whether and how participation in BFS activities is associated with improved maternal (mental health, breastfeeding practices, mother-child interactions) and child (morbidity and growth) outcomes.
