Happy International Breastfeeding Week!

This August 1-7, more than 120 countries around the world are spreading the word about the positive impacts of breastfeeding, including its nutritional value, infant immune system support, and recovery benefits to the mother.

PMC TV and radio shows help audiences understand the nutritional value of breastmilk, encouraging breastfeeding whenever it is possible. This decreases the likelihood of water or food from contaminated sources. Listeners to Agashi 2 (“Hey! Look Again!”) in Burundi were 1.9 times more likely than non-listeners to correctly state that breastmilk is a complete source of nutrition.
