World Breastfeeding Week is coordinated by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) and will take place from 1-7 August, 2022. The WABA objectives for the week include:
- Inform people about their role in strengthening the warm chain of support for breastfeeding
- Anchor breastfeeding as part of good nutrition, food security and reduction of inequalities
- Engage with individuals and organisations along the warm chain of support for breastfeeding
- Galvanise action on strengthening capacity of actors and systems for transformational change
“#WBW2022 will focus on strengthening the capacity of actors that have to protect, promote and support breastfeeding across different levels of society. These actors make up the warm chain of support for breastfeeding. Target audiences including governments, health systems, workplaces and communities will be informed, educated and empowered to strengthen their capacity to provide and sustain breastfeeding-friendly environments for families in the post pandemic world.” -WABA
