The U. S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding
In January 2011, U. S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin issued a carefully researched Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding. The 4-page Executive Summary (PDF – 833KB) lays out 20 Actions to equip our health care system and our communities to support American families to breastfeed.
The United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) is an independent nonprofit coalition of more than 50 nationally influential professional, educational, and governmental organizations that share a common mission to drive collaborative efforts for policy and practices that create a landscape of breastfeeding support across the United States. Breastfeeding advocates nationwide are invited to establish individual logins to learn about and participate in current action opportunities. Exploration of the COBA website will reveal that our members are involved in many of these Actions!
