Tracking progress for breastfeeding policies and programmes: Global breastfeeding scorecard 2017
WHO and UNICEF have established recommendations for breastfeeding practices. Although every mother decides how to feed her child, this decision is strongly influenced by economic, environmental, social and political factors. The Global Breastfeeding Scorecard analyzes indicators on how countries protect, promote and support breastfeeding through funding or policies.
The Scorecard includes:
- Country profiles
- World maps to display data
- Interactive dashboard
