Pledge now: 20 Years World Breastfeeding Week

Understanding the Past- Planning the Future

Celebrating 10 years of WHO/UNICEF's Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding and
20 Years of World Breastfeeding Week

Twenty years ago, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) launched its firstWorld 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. The challenge is then to 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.
