World Breastfeeding week 2018 (1/7 August)

Post date Tuesday, 31 July, 2018 - 16:01

The Food Security Cluster supports the World Breastfeeding Week
In a world filled with inequality, crises and poverty, breastfeeding is the foundation of lifelong good health.

A sustainable and more equal world begins with efforts to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Malnutrition, food insecurity and poverty affect millions and stand in the way of sustainable development.

Breastfeeding is a universal solution that gives everyone a fair start in life and lays the foundation for good health and survival of children and women.

The Objectives of #WBW2018 are to:

ANCHOR

ENGAGE

GALVANISE

We all have an important role to play in ensuring the growth, development and survival of children around the world.
