The Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding were presented to the World in the WHO/UNICEF Joint Statement Protecting, Promoting and Supporting Breast-feeding. The Special Role of Maternity Services
The Innocenti Declaration in 1990 called upon the world to fully implement the Ten Steps in all maternity units by 1995. Twenty years later, more than 152 countries have Baby Friendly accredited hospitals. They have implemented the Ten Steps, and, with the addition of relevant parts of the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes they have also helped to restrict the promotion of commercial infant formula to health care practitioners and the public.
This presentation will outline the goals and objectives of World Breastfeeding Week 2010, which is coordinated by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), a global network of individuals and organisations concerned with the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding worldwide based on the Innocenti Declaration, the Ten Links for Nurturing the Future and the WHO/UNICEF Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding.
