The World Breastfeeding Week is coordinated by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), a global network of individuals and organisations concerned with the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding worldwide based on the Innocenti Declarations, the Ten Links for Nurturing the Future and the WHO/UNICEF Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding.

World Breastfeeding Week 2017 is about working together for the common good, with the theme “Sustaining Breastfeeding Together.” WHO, along with UNICEF and other partners, will call on advocates and activists, decision-makers and celebrants to forge new and purposeful partnerships.
