Comparative analysis of implementation of the Innocenti Declaration in WHO European member states : monitoring Innocenti targets on the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding
AbstractThe Innocenti Declaration states that by 1995 all Member States should have achieved the targets outlined in the Innocenti Declaration and progress was reported at the World Health Assembly in 1998. By 1995 each Member State should have: appointed a national breastfeeding coordinator; established a multi-sectoral breastfeeding committee; ensured that all maternity facilities practice all Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding; taken action to give effect to the principles and aims of all Articles of the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes and subsequent relevant World Health Assembly resolutions; and enacted legislation protecting the breastfeeding rights of working women. The information in this document is based on completed questionnaires filled out by national nutrition counterparts regarding implementation of the Innocenti Declaration. The document provides a useful tool to compare situations, both at a European level and within sub-regions of Europe. Both WHO and UNICEF encourage and support national authorities in planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating policies related to protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding
