"WABA calls for:
- concerted global action to support women to combine breastfeeding and work, whether in the formal sector, non-formal sector, or at home
- ratification and implementation of maternity protection laws and regulations by governments, in line with the ILO Maternity Protection Convention
- inclusion of breastfeeding target indicators in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)"
WABA reminds us that there are three necessary factors for women to combine breastfeeding and working successfully: time, space and support.
