Breastfeeding LENS Limited is delighted to be able to offer this exclusive event which highlights the work of the International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN) and Baby Milk Action.
The event includes:
A cinema screening of 'Tigers' film (under festival licence). Tigers was nominated for the best film in the San Sebastian film festival 2014.
Followed by a discussion with Dr Diamond Emmanuel, the paediatrician represented in the film who opened the eyes of the company representative to the impact of aggressive formula marketing practices.
Plus Sally Etheride IBCLC will be reflecting the relevance for us in the UK in her presentation 'Breastfeeding, crisis and poverty in the UK'
Tigers is a new film by Oscar-winning director Danis Tanovic based on the true story of a former Nestlé baby milk salesman in Pakistan called Syed Aamir Raza taking on the industry with the help of IBFAN (the International Baby Food Action Network) when he realises that babies are dying as a result of his work pressuring doctors to promote formula.
One character in the film embodies some of the IBFANers who helped Aamir, including Tracey Wagner-Rizvi, Andreas Adelberger and Baby Milk Action’s Patti Rundall and Mike Brady.
The event is suitable for health professionals, IBCLCs, breastfeeding counsellors, breastfeeding peers supporters and anyone interested in breastfeeding and ethics.
