World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is the greatest outreach vehicle
for the breastfeeding movement, being celebrated in over 120
countries. Officially it is celebrated from 1-7 August. However,
groups may choose other dates to make it a more successful event
in their countries.
Sharing your wonderful work will show linkage and solidarity
with the global WBW campaign. Send your reports, materials you
have produced, photos and we will create a webpage for you which
you can use to further promote your WBW activities to firstname.lastname@example.org
We do not accept sponsorship of any kind from companies producing
breastmilk substitutes, related equipment and complementary
foods. We encourage all participants of World Breastfeeding
Week to respect and follow this ethical stance.
