Code Webinar Series
A Civil Society Guide to the International Code of Marketing of Breast-Milk Substitutes and New Global Guidance on Marketing Infant Foods
ARCH partnered with the Scaling Up Nutrition Civil Society Network to develop a webinar series on the global policies which protect families against inappropriate promotion of foods for infants and young children. Full video recordings of these webinar presentations are available for anyone interested in learning about the regulatory and policy environment around breastfeeding and complementary feeding.
This series begins with an overview of the World Health Organization’s International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes and the history of its implementation since adoption by the World Health Assembly in 1981. It continues with a discussion of current issues in child nutrition advocacy, including the role of the new Guidance on Ending the Inappropriate Promotion of Foods for Infants and Young Children in the application and enforcement of the Code.
A Civil Society Guide to: The International Code of Marketing of Breast milk Substitutes and new Global Guidance on Marketing Infant Foods was designed to empower civil society colleagues with the necessary information for upholding global guidelines to protect infants and young children.
