Join us as we introduce new tools and resources to support implementation of recommendations on providing skilled breastfeeding counselling to all women during the first thousand days of their children’s lives.

The resources being introduced:

  • Implementation Guidance on Counselling Women to Improve Breastfeeding Practices (UNICEF and WHO), presented by Laurence Grummer-Strawn and Fatmata Fatima Sesay
  • Infant and Young Child Feeding Counselling: Training Course (WHO), presented by Carmen Casanovas
  • Operational Guidance: Breastfeeding Counselling in Emergencies (ENN and IFE Core Group), presented by Isabelle Modigell

  • Compendium of Skilled Breastfeeding Case Studies (Collective), presented by a panel of participants from the case studies

These resources will provide governments (including ministries of health), civil society organizations, UN agencies’ staff, donors, and others with specific steps in improving and expanding breastfeeding counselling in their communities, including in emergency situations, and will provide examples of how this has been achieved in different countries.

Sponsored by the Global Breastfeeding Collective, including UNICEF, the World Health Organization, and more than 25 prominent international agencies calling on governments, policy makers development partners and civil society to increase investment in breastfeeding worldwide.
