Breastfeeding at the Committee on Economic Social and Cultural Rights.

In 2013, IBFAN submitted to the CESCR five alternative reports on the situation of infant and young child feeding in Azerbaijan, Denmark (50th session),Austria, Belarus and Egypt (51st pre-session). The reports aim at sensitizing the Committee on the issue of infant and young child feeding and its importance for the full implementation of the rights enshrined in the International Covenant, in particular the right to health and food. The IBFAN-GIFA team presented the reports orally at a meetings of the CESCR with NGOs.
