2023 Lancet Series on Breastfeeding – Australasia & Pacific Launch Event

This event was held on Tuesday 14 February. Please find a recording of the event lower down this page.
Join co-authors of the 2023 Lancet Series on Breastfeeding, and a panel of experts, as they explore the immense value breastfeeding women generate for society and how the vulnerabilities of women, children and families are exploited by the formula milk industry.
The three papers cover:
  • Infant behaviours, feeding practices and multisectoral interventions to support breastfeeding.
  • How baby behaviours are misconstrued to undermine breastfeeding, but multi-sectoral interventions work to protect it.
  • How the formula marketing ‘playbook’ targets parents, health professionals and policy-makers and undermines the health and rights of children and mothers.
  • How power imbalances and political and economic structures determine feeding practices, women’s rights and health outcomes.
The special edition publication in The Lancet is available online.
