Description

Join us for a conversation with guest speaker Jane Badham, consultant to Helen Keller International as she explains why the current work of Codex is so important for protecting breastfeeding and putting the lives of children before profit.

On the agenda of the up-coming Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses meeting, in Berlin from 26th-30th November, is the revision of the Codex Standard on Follow-up Formula (CX 156-1987) and this is an important opportunity for country governments to reiterate their commitment to breastfeeding—a practice that has the potential to save the lives of over 800,000 young children every year.

It is critical that countries attend the meeting or at the very least submit a conference room document giving their stated opinion. These webinars will set the context for the issues being addressed (Webinar 1), give the evidence for the necessary actions (Webinar 2) and provide basic information on how Codex works in order to assist delegations attending the meeting (Webinar 3).
