#SGCTA to Support #Breastfeeding at Five Years: Reflecting Back...Looking Forward

This year's National Breastfeeding Month theme focused on reflecting back and looking forward in celebration of the five-year anniversary of The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding (SGCTA). Organizations and individuals are invited to share written comments on the forums linked below, on priority action areas and associated implementation strategies for the next five years. The comment forums are hosted on four separate channels (Families & Communities, Health Care, Employment, and Cross-Sector). All comments will be compiled into a report for the USBC and its network, including USBC-affiliated Constellations pursuing national action in specific topic areas. The compilation report will also be delivered to the Surgeon General and the Federal Interagency Breastfeeding Work Group.

Please post comments by clicking on the links below: the forums will remain open through Friday, September 30. In order to post, you’ll first need to be logged in to the USBC website. If you do not see questions on the page below, click "Login" in the upper right corner of your screen. If you don't yet have a website user account, you’ll be guided to create one with just a few clicks.
