Open Full Event Save the datr: 8 February, 2022, the 2023 Lancet Series on Breastfeeding - Including the influence of commercial milk formula marketing


Early and exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a child’s life reduces child mortality and has health benefits that extend into adulthood. Breastfeeding benefits not only the child but the mother and family as it is free of cost and reduces the risk of infection in newborns, enhances neurodevelopment, and reduces the risk of acquiring certain non-communicable illnesses in adulthood.

Richard Horton, Editor in Chief - The Lancet and a panel of experts unpack a new 3-paper Lancet Series which explores how the value of breastfeeding is wasted by government and public health and exploited by the formula milk industry. The session will be held on 8 February 2023, in London from 12:30 to 14:00 GMT, but it will also be possible to participate online.
