The World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) is a global network of individuals
& organisations concerned with the protection, promotion & support of breastfeeding worldwide.
WABA action is based on the Innocenti Declaration, the Ten Links for Nurturing the Future and the
Global Strategy for Infant & Young Child Feeding. WABA is in consultative status with UNICEF & an NGO
in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC).


Mother Support Task Force (MSTF) Newsletter

As one of eight Task Forces that assist WABA in mobilizing all sectors of the community to restore and sustain breastfeeding cultures, the MS TF implements activities that attempt to create the appropriate environment of awareness and support for a mother to initiate and sustain breastfeeding. Toward this goal, the MS TF, in 2000, established the Global Initiative for Mother Support (GIMS for Breastfeeding), to give attention to the "support" component of the Innocenti Declaration. 

Quarterly Newsletter

In addition to featuring worldwide GIMS activities in this quarterly newsletter, the MS TF plans to disseminate information on other MS TF activities and on upcoming events that relate to breastfeeding and mother support and to serve as a tool to link individuals and organizations that are working in mother support.
