In times of health crisis and emergency, including COVID-19, the implementation of the WHO/UNICEF Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding is more important than ever, but it is hindered by lack of investment in breastfeeding policies and plans nationally. This online workshop program aims to galvanise efforts to improve breastfeeding policies and funding in national budgets. Experts in breastfeeding, gender budgeting, health and economic policy will draw on global experience including from countries in South and East Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Australia to apply the World Breastfeeding Trends initiative (WBTi) to Australian policy. The online program follows up from the first ‘gender budgeting and breastfeeding’ workshop in September 2017, at which the WBTi was established in Australia.

Please register to join us online at the registration tab above to learn more about how to progress breastfeeding policy, through applying these innovative global initiatives and tools in Australia.

The program including the Zoom log on and the PowerPoints are included in the ‘downloads’ tab above. Details for the next event on 4 May 2020 in this series is available here.

We acknowledge and thank the The Gender Institute, ANU for funding. We also appreciate the support of Save the Children UK, and the World Breastfeeding Trends Initiative, Breastfeeding Promotion Network Of India.
