Focus Ethnographic Study (FES) in Ghana


This Focused Ethnographic Study (FES) used research modules derived from a cultural-ecological framework to examine infant and young child feeding practices, behaviours and beliefs from a household perspective. The FES was conducted in selected communities in the northern and central region of Ghana, with sampling frames divided into sub-frames to correspond with the four age groups of interest: 6-8 months, 9-11 months, 12-23 months (breast fed), and 12-23 months not breast fed. This study yields important insights about current infant and young child feeding behaviours and practices and enabled the identification of appropriate interventions to address infant and young child diet inadequacies and malnutrition.
