Breastfeeding: A key to Sustainable Development
The theme of this year's World Breastfeeding Week, celebrated every year during the first week in August, is "Breastfeeding: A Key to Sustainable Development". It is dedicated to demonstrate how breastfeeding, among many other actions, can support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and proposing actions on how to improve policies and programs for its protection, promotion and support.
Many leaders in the public and private sector are beginning to recognize that the protection, promotion, and support of breastfeeding are an investment not only in health but also in economic and social development. Whether maintaining robust breastfeeding rates or seeking solutions to improve breastfeeding practices, the efforts of individual nations will be strengthened by cooperation through global cooperation, and will ultimately benefit not only mothers and infants, but all people and our planet.
