Message to our Eeyou Itschee communities: The Breastfeeding Week’s theme for 2013


Every year, a different theme is chosen for the Breastfeeding Week, and there is always material created by WHO and WABA on that specific theme. While we are not obligated to choose that theme for our regional and local activities, this year the theme is “Breastfeeding Support”.

Here are some posters on different types of support for the breastfeeding mother made by WHO:

WABA (World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action) also creates a lot of Breastfeeding Week material. On this site, you will find posters, a calendar, an action folder, banners, etc.:

PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) also has some material and a very nice poster on the importance of breastfeeding:
