The World Breastfeeding Week 2016

World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is an annual celebration which is being held every year from 1 to 7 August in more than 120 countries including our country.

World Breastfeeding Week was first celebrated in 1992 by World Health Organisation and UNICEF  with the goal to establish a global breastfeeding culture and provide support for breastfeeding everywhere. The World Health Organization (WHO) emphasizes the value of breastfeeding for mothers as well as children and recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life and then supplemented breastfeeding for at least one year and up to two years.

In September 2015, the world's leaders committed to 17 goals aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity. Together, ​they​ form the​ ​Sustainable Development​ Goals​. We all have a part to play in achieving these goals​ by 2030​.

The World Breastfeeding Week 2016 theme is about how breastfeeding is a key element in getting us to think about how to value our wellbeing from the start of life, how to respect each other and care for the world we share.
