Global Evidence

Evidence underpins the seven policy actions both in their development and implementation. Throughout the Breastfeeding Advocacy Toolkit, users will find resources, tools, and reports that synthesize and apply the best available evidence to practice.
The Global Evidence section gathers the key sources of knowledge and evidence to enhance breastfeeding policies, programs, financing, and communication into one area for rapid reference in developing rationale and plans to implement the seven policy actions. 
This section also includes a selected number of high-quality, high-impact peer-reviewed studies that are frequently referenced by nutrition and health staff during the development of recommendations and programs for the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding.
