Breastfeeding week resources available

World breastfeeding Week is underway and is focused on the theme ‘a key to sustainable development’. 

A range of free downloads and resources are available in a variety of languages for professionals and the public.

The World Breastfeeding Week 2016 aim is to raise awareness of the links between breastfeeding and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The core message of this year’s campaign is to ‘learn to value our wellbeing from the beginning of life, and to respect and care for each other in our shared world’.

The World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) is behind the week, which has been celebrated since 1992 and is the biggest social mobilisation platform for breastfeeding.

Dr Amal Omer-Salim, WABA’s co-executive director, said: ‘The annual WBW celebration should be more than a week-long effort.

‘By focusing on a broader context, longer time frame and practical yet ambitious goals, we can create sustainable and engaging campaigns. Let us campaign for a generation.’
