WBTi is developed by International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN) Asia to assess the implementation of the WHO Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding. Currently 81 countries are participating in the project. The assessment assists in the identification of gaps and the recommendation of improvement measures, which are listed in detail in the full report.
BFHIHKA was invited by IBFAN Asia to co-ordinate the assessment for HKSAR. With the support of the Consumer Council, the first assessment was done in 2008, and the second assessment in 2012. The assessment involved 15 indicators in two parts. Full score for each indicator is 10. HKSAR’s total score was 27 in 2008 and 37 in 2012.
