Trouble looming

The world is running out of antibiotics. There is an urgent need for more investment in research and development for antibiotic-resistant infections including t...uberculosis, otherwise we will be forced back to a time when people feared common infections and risked their lives from minor surgery.

#Breastfeeding: A smart investment

Breastfeeding is not a one-woman job. Mothers need support from their health providers, families, employers, communities, and governments to give their children the healthiest possible start to life. Breastfeeding protects children from illness, increases IQ, and creates a strong bond between mother and child.

Increased rates of breastfeeding also reduce inequalities and nurture economies by producing a stronger, more able workforce and by lowering healthcare costs. Nations are not adequately protecting, promoting, or supporting breastfeeding, according to the Global Breastfeeding Scorecard, which evaluated 194 countries. WHO calls on countries to implement policies and programmes to encourage breastfeeding, such as paid family leave and workplace breastfeeding policies.

Breastfeeding WEEK

World Health Organization (WHO) is supporting #Breastfeeding.

World Breastfeeding Week starts today.
NO country in the world fully meets recommended standards. We need to invest more in policies to promote, protect and support breastfeeding.

No country in the world fully meets recommended standards for breastfeeding, according to a new report by UNICEF and WHO in collaboration with the Global Breastfeeding Collective, a new initiative to increase global breastfeeding rates.
