WBW promotes breastfeeding awareness and education. The theme for 2012, the twentieth World Breastfeeding Week, is Understanding the Past — Planning the Future, as we all commemorate 10 years of WHO/UNICEF’s Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding.
From the official site:
Twenty years ago, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) launched its first World BreastfeedingWeek (WBW) campaign with the theme: “Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative.” So much has happened in these 20 years, it is time to celebrate but also to look back, understand what has happened and why. Then plan what more can be done to support all women to be able to optimally feed and care for of their infants and young children.
Let’s look back and forward as we give our thoughts and experiences about breastfeeding for this year’s WBW!
