USAID Advancing Nutrition

For more than 40 years, USAID has promoted breastfeeding to save lives, prevent malnutrition, and enhance the long-term health and development of women and children. The Agency’s maternal and child nutrition programs aim to educate and support mothers and families on the benefits of breastfeeding by addressing the key barriers to optimal breastfeeding practices.

In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week 2021, join to hear USAID country programs share their experiences with protecting and promoting breastfeeding across communities, health systems and in emergency settings around the world. In addition to gaining access to the event, registrants will also receive breastfeeding content throughout the month of August.
