The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee team has launched the completed series of 2020 State and Territory Breastfeeding Reports outlining critical data and federally funded activities in each state/territory. Download the report to see how lactation outcomes in your state compare to national rates and how federal investments in infant feeding are making a difference where you live.
Each report features data on breastfeeding rates, disparities, maternity care practices, and WIC performance measures and highlights state and community-based projects made possible through federal funding in 2020:
The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) began its equity journey before I started in 2017 and that work will continue long after I am gone. We continually strive to center equity in both our internal processes and external programs. One area of pride for the USBC is having one of the most diverse Board of Directors in the country. Hopefully, you’ve noticed some of the other ways the USBC is centering diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Earlier this year, we invited organizations in our network to participate in a DEI interview and survey process. This was our first step in seeing how DEI is operationalized in the world of lactation. The USBC team also completed the DEI interview and surveys, and we have more work to do as well. Our next steps are to clean and code the data, share the findings with you, and collectively figure out the next steps to advance DEI in our field.
