#Breastfeeding provides food security to infants from the very beginning of life, promoting overall family health and wellbeing.
#Nutrition is essential to #nurturing, and is linked to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, contributing to global maternal and infant survival. Breastfeeding is an essential part of good nutrition, food security and reduction of inequalities, and through engaging with valued partners along the #warmchain, my Wellbeing Foundation Africa is strengthening the capacity for transformative change and equality.
Placing the mother-baby dyad at the core of our programming and development ensures an optimal level of continuum of care, and that mothers are empowered with a more fulfilling and effective breastfeeding experience.
WBFA’s Mamacare+N, is a maternal, newborn and child health service, with a focus on women and girls, supported by our forward thinking partners UNFPA, UNFPA Nigeria and Nutrition International, encompassed key interventions and access in family planning, iron and folic acid supplementation, and nutritional advice, as they mutually reinforce each and contribute to ending intergenerational cycles of poor health and poverty.
From drawing up strategies for the protection, promotion and support of nutrition from and during breastfeeding, including monitoring and evaluation to inform national analysis, targets and policy, we must acknowledge that #breastisbest!
