Centers of Excellence for Breastfeeding
To be a center of excellence, a facility must…

  • Support mothers to initiate breastfeeding within 90 minutes postpartum by conducting early essential newborn care for all deliveries
  • Ensure exclusive breastfeeding at hospital discharge
  • Not promote breastmilk substitutes
