Please join us as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the adoption of the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes (the Code) by the 34th World Health Assembly.
Hear from leading speakers on how big corporations influence infant and young child feeding patterns around the world and how those practices risk public health. Get inspired with how Governments tackle these practices through Code legislation and learn what more we can do to strengthen the Code in the years to come to provide our infants with the best start in life.
Sponsored by the Global Breastfeeding Collective, which includes UNICEF, the WHO and more than 25 international agencies, who are all calling on governments, policy makers, development partners, and civil society actors to increase investments in breastfeeding worldwide.
