The International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN) and the Department of Health – Republic of South Africa are co-hosting the 2nd World Breastfeeding Conference in collaboration with WHO, UNICEF, World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) and Global Breastfeeding Initiative for Child Survival (gBICS) partners in Johannesburg South Africa. The Conference will provide an opportunity to review the global investment promises for maternal, infant and young child nutrition in light of resolutions from the 65th World Health Assembly (WHA) of 2012, and to generate ideas for further resource mobilisation and/or strengthening of interventions. Furthermore, the conference will raise awareness on progress so far made in improving breastfeeding rates, which has occurred at different speeds in many countries and raise awareness on a number of challenges to the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding and other interventions due to the funding, structural, policy and political environment.
