FED IS BEST FOUNDATION RESPONSE TO U.S. DELEGATION ACTIONS AT THE WORLD HEALTH ASSEMBLY

The U.S. delegation led by the U.S. Health and Human Secretary recently opposed the first draft of the Infant and Young Feeding resolution proposed at the 71st World Health Assembly. We have provided a line-by-line comparison of items supported by the U.S. delegation and those that they opposed. Among the delegates were pediatricians who were concerned about the effects of the first draft policy on rates of child malnutrition, particularly in warn-torn countries, directly caused by the restrictive policies of the WHO and UNICEF.


Grand Rounds on the Dangers of Insufficient Exclusive Breastfeeding

On May 2-3, 2018, Dr. Christie del Castillo-Hegyi, Co-Founder of the Fed is Best Foundation had the honor of giving the following Grand Rounds presentation to the largest hospital in Santa Fe, NM, CHRISTUS St. Vincent whose safety and quality improvement program is leading the way toward optimizing newborn breastfeeding support. The Grand Rounds conference was held over two days and were attended by approximately 80 physicians, nurses, lactation consultants and other health professionals who contributed to a very positive discussion of safe breastfeeding support in the newborn period. A video of the presentation can be viewed by clicking on the picture below. For hospitals interested in promoting safe breastfeeding practices, please contact us at contact@fedisbest.org.
