20th World Breastfeeding Week Understanding the Past, Planning the future
We will be celebrating the 20th World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) in 2012 with the theme “Understanding the Past, Planning the future”. We will take this special occasion to celebrate one of the important achievements internationally: 10 years of WHO/ UNICEF Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding (Thereafter, Global Strategy). To assess the implementation of the Global Strategy, International Baby Food Action Network, Asia (IBFAN Asia) has developed World Breastfeeding Trend Initiative (WBTi) in 2008. Nowadays, a total of 81 countries have joined the initiative. BFHIHKA was invited to collect assessment data for the first time in 2008. This year, BFHIHKA has conducted the second assessment. We released the assessment report, which include gaps and recommendations for the situation in Hong Kong, during the Annual Press Conference on 28th July.
