Protect Breastfeeding:A Shared Responsibility​

Our partners, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) coordinate and organize World Breastfeeding Week between the 1st and 7th August. 
Find more information here.

Historically, World Breastfeeding Week honors the August 1990 signing of the Innocenti Declaration by government policymakers, the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and other organizations. That document helped pave the way for protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding worldwide. But there is still much work to be done!

Pledge to participate in the #WBW2021 celebrations by sending WABA details of your activities and they will pin your information to their Pledge Map. Use this link: http://worldbreastfeedingweek.org/pledge-form/.
