Webinar: Building Better Breastfeeding Counselling Programmes

Building Better Breastfeeding Counselling Programmes: New tools for implementation

Join The Global Breastfeeding Collective during World Breastfeeding Week as they introduce new tools and resources to support implementation of recommendations on providing skilled breastfeeding counselling to all women during the first thousand days of their children’s lives.

The resources being introduced:

  • Implementation Guidance on Counselling Women to Improve Breastfeeding Practices (UNICEF and WHO), presented by Laurence Grummer-Strawn and Fatmata Fatima Sesay
  • Infant and Young Child Feeding Counselling: Training Course (WHO), presented by Carmen Casanovas
  • Operational Guidance: Breastfeeding Counselling in Emergencies (ENN and IFE Core Group), presented by Isabelle Modigell
  • Advocacy Brief: The Role of Midwives and Nurses in Protecting, Promoting, and Supporting Breastfeeding (Collective), presented by Carole Kenner, Theresa Shaver, Leah Greenspan
  • Compendium of Skilled Breastfeeding Case Studies (Collective), presented by a panel of participants from the case studies

These resources will provide governments (including ministries of health), civil society organizations, UN agencies’ staff, donors, and others with specific steps in improving and expanding breastfeeding counselling in their communities, including in emergency situations, and will provide examples of how this has been achieved in different countries.
