Accelerating 10 steps for successful breastfeeding in WCAR : Leveraging the South East Experience

This webinar focuses on accelerating implementation of the Ten Steps for Successful Breastfeeding in West and Central Africa using an innovative approach called the Centers of Excellence for Breastfeeding. This approach is being implemented by Alive & Thrive and other partners in South East Asia, and provides a way forward for nutrition and health programs in West and Central Africa to operationalise baby-friendly hospital initiatives and promote early initiation of and establishing exclusive breastfeeding in the first few days of life. The webinar is part of a series of virtual events organized by WHO, UNICEF and Alive & Thrive regional offices and is part of the ‘Stronger With Breastmilk Only’ regional initiative.

The webinar celebrates World Breastfeeding Week 2022, and follows the global webinar on ‘Take Ten Steps Up for Breastfeeding’ organized by the Global Breastfeeding Collective.
