World breastfeeding week is taking place from 1 – 7 August 2017.

World Breastfeeding Week is a vibrant global movement for action to promote, protect and support breastfeeding by anyone, anywhere and at anytime. It expands and connects the power of one with the power of many. Only by working together can we make the change we need.

WBW2017 celebrates working together for the common good, which produces sustainable results, greater than the sum of our individual efforts.

We learnt in WBW2016 how the protection, promotion and support for breastfeeding are a key to sustainable development.

#WBW2017 will call on advocates and activists, decision-makers and celebrants to forge new and purposeful partnerships. Together, let’s attract political support, media attention, participation of young people and widen our pool of celebrants and supporters.

It will enable the breastfeeding movement (and beyond) to connect with a variety of development issues over the next 15 years (2030) for maximum impact.
