The Global Breastfeeding Education Initiative (Global BFEI) was launched in March 2023, to contribute to improving breastfeeding education to advance towards the achievement of 70% of babies breastfed exclusively until 6 months of age by 2030, through training and education programs. To reach this goal, the Global BFEI offers a variety of educational tools that provide impartial information on the benefits of breastfeeding and practical training aimed at increasing women’s practical knowledge, skills, and confidence to breastfeed.
