The aim of the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes is an important tool for ensuring safe and adequate nutrition for infants. It protects and promotes breastfeeding by ensuring the proper use of breastmilk substitutes, when these are necessary, on the basis of adequate information and through appropriate marketing and distribution. Nations are supposed to enact legislations as a follow-up to this. Several relevant subsequent World Health Assembly resolutions, which strengthen the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes have been adopted since then and have the same status as the Code. The Global Strategy calls for heightened action on this target.
