Webinar WBW2019 EN

As part of the activities to mark World Breastfeeding Week 2019, on Wednesday, 7 August, PAHO will hold the webinar "Protect breastfeeding in the workplace".

The event is organized with the objective of discussing the benefits of breastfeeding for mothers and children and presenting country experiences with maternity protection laws for both the formal and informal sectors. We hope this is a space for discussion in which we can renew our commitment, empower parents and enable breastfeeding through maternity protection laws and recommended breastfeeding practices.
