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.
