BREASTFEEDING: Foundation of Life
“In a world filled with inequality, crises and poverty, breastfeeding is the foundation of lifelong good health for babies and mothers.”
Celebrate WORLD BREASTFEEDING WEEK (WBW) 1-7 August 2018! The theme this year is Breastfeeding: Foundation for Life.
Breastfeeding helps to prevent malnutrition in all its forms, ensures food security for infants and young children, and thus helps to bring people and nations out of the hunger and poverty cycle. It is therefore a foundation of life. Protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding is vital to a more sustainable world.
Promote World Breastfeeding Week this year by advocating for and informing people of the economic, environmental, and health implications of promoting optimal breastfeeding on a global scale.
Wherever you are, you can inform, anchor, engage and galvanize on breastfeeding as the foundation for life.
