World Breastfeeding Week
Stepping up for Breastfeeding in
a World Facing a Food and Nutrition Crisis

Breastfeeding remains the ultimate lifesaving nutrition intervention for our youngest infants and children, offering a safe, nutritious, and accessible food source and a protective shield against disease and death. Over the last four decades, the world has achieved a 50 percent increase in the prevalence of exclusive breastfeeding. But in a world facing numerous crises driven by conflict, climate change and the COVID19 pandemic, the lives of millions of children are at risk. Now more than ever, we need to accelerate our collective efforts to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
This year’s World Breastfeeding Week, with the theme Step up for breastfeeding: Educate and support, puts the focus on strengthening the capacity of all actors to support mothers and babies across a continuum of care during the first 1000 days.
To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week, we are excited to share the products and activities supported by UNICEF, WHO and the Global Breastfeeding Collective partners:

As we continue to roll out the UNICEF Nutrition Strategy 2020-2030, we invite you all to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and make the best use of these materials and events to protect, promote and support breastfeeding
