World Breastfeeding Week

The goal for Breastfeeding Week is to raise awareness of the health benefits to both mom and baby.  Breastfeeding is one of the best investments for saving lives and improving the health of health, social and economic development of individuals and nations.  All parents with young children should have access to skilled breastfeeding access and support from health facilities, workplaces and communities.  A public health approach to breastfeeding is needed to build better systems in normal and crisis situations.
