  • 2. Local communicators (teachers, journalists, media, students) working together to build and share vital messages and raise awareness on breastfeeding
  • 3. Collaborative projects with health centers and outreach efforts for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers or training courses for lactation consultants and peer counselors
