As a leader in global nutrition and development, the U.S. Government recognizes the critical role that the 1,000-day window between pregnancy and a child’s second birthday has on child growth, cognitive development, and disease prevention. In honor of this year’s World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month, the U.S. Government Global Nutrition Coordination Plan is hosting an event to bring together U.S. Government departments and agencies, implementing partners, external stakeholders, civil society, and other breastfeeding advocates to discuss U.S. Government investments in supporting families to breastfeed in the workplace and in communities, and skilled support for breastfeeding.
