2016 saw the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action begin their 15 year journey to achieve the sustainable development goals; which call for multi-sectorial collaboration between all services who come into contact with breastfeeding mothers and infants, in the hopes of one day demonstrating just how important breastfeeding is in tackling global problems such as hunger, inequality and poverty as it is argued by some that this natural act could potentially drive positive changes to concepts such as ecology, economy and equity. Therefore the World Breastfeeding Week’s 25th year is about working together for the common good!
