2003, the Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India (BPNI) and
The International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN) Asia, organized
a landmark event, the Asia Pacific Conference on Breastfeeding’
in New Delhi, India to promote the implementation of the Global
Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding. As a follow up, the
South Asian participants decided to mobilize groups, governments,
UN and others to focus on related issues. It led to the organizing
of the South Asia Breastfeeding Partners Forum each year in different
countries. The major objective is to strengthen the breastfeeding
movement and its linkages with governments and the UN agencies.
Enhancing interest and action on infant and young child feeding
was the considered outcome.
