World Breastfeeding Week 2022

August 1, 2022 - Last update: August 22, 2022

Each year, from 1-7 August, countries, organizations and nutrition champions celebrate World Breastfeeding Week all over the world. In 2022, under its theme ‘Step up for Breastfeeding - Educate and Support’, this week will be critical to raise awareness around the importance of breastfeeding as a fundament of good nutrition, food security and reduction of inequalities.

This year’s World Breastfeeding Week comes at a critical time for the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement's 65 Countries currently focusing on safeguarding and advancing national nutrition efforts while dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing global food and nutrition crisis.

This is why seeing countries stepping up for breastfeeding this year is more important and remarkable than ever.

The SUN Movement World Breastfeeding Week Communications toolkit is available here - feel free to use it and share the resources therein to amplify the key messages and #StepUpForBreastfeeding.
