Infant Feeding

World Breastfeeding Trends Initiative

Project Coordinators: Helen Gray IBCLC and Clare Meynell IBCLC

World Breastfeeding Trends Initiative (WBTi) UK is measuring the country’s performance against the WHO Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding.

The WBTi focuses on 10 key indicators from the evidence-based strategies in the WHO Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding and the Innocenti Declaration, which are described in the 2008 Protection, Promotion and Support of Breastfeeding in Europe: a blueprint for action and in Infant and Young Child Feeding: Standard Recommendations for the European Union.

The WBTi report is a valuable tool to assist governments to target scarce resources more effectively. About 100 countries are already participating in the WBTi; the latest reports and details are available online at www.worldbreastfeedingtrends.org.
