Increasing funding for breastfeeding

Advocacy guidance brief

Increasing funding for breastfeeding


This is the Collective's Advocacy Guidance Brief on increasing investment in programmes and policies that protect, promote, and support breastfeeding.  It is one of seven briefs that provide guidance and resources to stakeholders on how to advocate for the Collective’s seven policy actions.

Breastfeeding is a smart investment that saves lives and benefits the economy. The current global level of investment is not enough to substantially increase and sustain breastfeeding rates. Governments and political leaders should invest in comprehensive strategies and social policies that protect, promote, and support breastfeeding to ensure the health and prosperity of generations to come.
