Scientific and technical advisory group on Inappropriate promotion of foods for infants and young children

24 – 25 June 2013, Geneva, Swtizerland

In May 2012, the Sixty-fifth World Health Assembly requested the Director General to provide clarification and guidance on the inappropriate promotion of foods for infants and young children.

WHO convened a Scientific and Technical Advisory Group (STAG) including experts in the field of infant and young child feeding and the regulatory framework around foods for infants and young children. The first meeting of STAG was organized in Geneva on 24–25 June 2013.

The STAG developed a Technical Paper on Definition of Inappropriate Promotion of foods for infants and young children that was submitted to WHO in August 2013.
