Global Breastfeeding Collective: Strategies for Infant and Young Child Feeding in Climate-Related Emergencies

A quick guide summarizing the code and relevant resolutions of the World Health Assembly that help protect breastfeeding around the globe.

Global Breastfeeding Collective: Compendium of Skilled Breastfeeding Counselling Case Studies

This document is a companion to the advocacy brief, providing a compendium of current examples of how individual countries, programmes and initiatives have successfully answered these calls to action and offering practical guidance and recommendations on how others can replicate their success. Eight case studies were selected because they explicitly address a call to action, while also providing a geographically diverse and robust set of examples with learnings that are applicable for audiences around the globe.
