The Problem with the Formula Milk Industry : Should Health Professional Associations Refuse Industry Funding?
- Sep 29, 2022 @ 9:00am
This webinar (a follow up to our webinar on September 8) will focus on the role of health professional associations in taking a stand against formula milk marketing to protect the integrity of their professions, and to improve health outcomes for children and women. For decades, the formula milk industry has aggressively marketed their products – despite the negative impact on child and maternal health and human rights, and despite an International Code agreed by all countries to restrict this marketing. Formula milk companies don’t just target parents in their marketing. They also systematically target the people parents often trust the most – their health professionals – to influence their beliefs, training and advice.
