Baby-Friendly Initiative Symposium
BREASTFEEDING COMMITTEE FOR CANADA.
October 1-3, 2019. Yellowknife. Northwest Territories. Canada.
BEYOND THE TEN STEPS:
CRITICAL CONNECTIONS FOR TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE
The Breastfeeding Committee for Canada is the national authority for the Baby Friendly Initiative - a global quality improvement initiative developed by the WHO/UNICEF that promotes optimal maternal and child health and nutrition.
The Breastfeeding Committee for Canada presents a three-day interactive pan-Canadian symposium with experiential learning opportunities that will investigate how health equity and social justice approaches can inform the Baby-Friendly Initiative and its implementation in Canada.
It is well known that families and communities in Canada can experience significant disparities in breastfeeding rates and access to support.
Constraints are caused by unmet social determinants of health and a range of injustices including gender inequality, racism, poverty and violence.
Participants will learn how to move beyond the organizational practices and to build the critical connections necessary for transformative change in breastfeeding promotion, policy and research.
