The International Week for breast feeding support starts on August 1 in more than 120 countries. This action, held in Russia in the course of several years, was resolved as the strategic method for breast feeding support and recommencement of the once lost breast feeding practice.

Within the frames of the Week several actions, lectures and discussions are planned in Republic of Bashkortostan. The active work for support of the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund declaration “Protection, encouragement and support of breast feeding” is held in Bashkortostan since 2000.
