Supporting Global Health Through Advocacy
GMMB supports advocacy efforts for Alive & Thrive, an international initiative to save lives, prevent illness, and ensure healthy growth and development through improved breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices.
In Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and the Southeast Asia and West Africa regions, GMMB has designed and supported implementation of strategies that included opinion leader research; developing and disseminating compelling evidence-based messages and materials; orchestrating coalitions of in-country and international partners; building relationships with influential media outlets and journalists; and ultimately winning the support of key politicians and policymakers.
GMMB’s work has led to landmark policy changes to expand paid maternity leave and tighten restrictions on advertising for breast milk substitutes, increase in-depth reporting on child nutrition, and raise the visibility of the issue among policymakers.
