These meetings will be preceded by the “Thousand Mothers Breastfeeding” promotion mass media event, on the 11th November.
The Conference will call for committed action and provide a platform for breastfeeding advocates, governments, scientists, civil society organizations, UN agencies, international organizations, research institutions, public interest groups, students, community health care workers, and other stakeholders to discuss and share experiences. It will provide an opportunity to review actions directed to scale up effective healthy infant feeding policies and recommendations.
The conference will address breastfeeding as a human right, emphasizing women’s rights, children’s rights, the right to healthy food and nutrition, and maternity protection, among other themes.
