Infant feeding practices have a profound impact on population health outcomes. This is why increasing breastfeeding rates and creating lactation-friendly environments have been identified as critical public health priorities both nationally and globally. Yet barriers to establishing and maintaining the human milk feeding relationship are persistent and pervasive in the United States. This year, in addition to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many families also had to navigate the devastating infant formula recall and shortage, stripping away their confidence in keeping their babies safely fed.
The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee and our network of members, partners, and supporters are diligently working to remove the policy, system, and environmental barriers that families face. We are proud to share that in 2022, we did many great things together, including achieving forward movement on all five of the policy priorities that were selected by our supporters and member organizations in 2020. We thank you for your continued support.
Here is a detailed account reflecting ongoing USBC activities to advance these five policy priorities.
