World Breastfeeding Week

World Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7, 2017

The World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) has announced that this year’s World Breastfeeding Week theme is “Sustaining Breastfeeding Together”.

This year’s theme continues to support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The 2017 World Breastfeeding Week theme emphasizes the importance of forging multilevel partnerships to create systems-level change in support of breastfeeding and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Breastfeeding has an important role to play in protecting our environment, creating food security, promoting health and well-being, and empowering women.
