Dear All,

Join WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and partners on Wednesday 23 February for the launch of a new WHO-UNICEF report: How the marketing of formula milk influences our decisions on infant feeding. Two events are planned to accommodate different time zones:

Event 1: 10h00-11h30 CET (Geneva) – register here

(interpretation in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish)

Event 2: 11h00-12h30 EST (New York) = 17h00 CET (Geneva) – register here

(interpretation in Portuguese and Spanish)

The report – the largest of its kind to date – draws on the experiences of over 8,500 women and 300 health professionals across eight countries. It exposes the aggressive marketing practices used by the formula milk industry, and highlights the impacts on families and children. The report calls for a whole-of-society response and outlines opportunities for action.

There are three easy ways to support this event:

1.     PROMOTE – share the save-the-date with your networks and channels by email and through social media

2.     PARTICIPATE – register for the launch using the links above, and access the live feed here.

3.     SUPPORT – go public with your support (social media toolkit will be shared in advance).

Thank you and we look forward to your participation.  

Join the launch of a new @WHO @UNICEF report on aggressive formula milk marketing & its impact on health & #HumanRights. Largest report of its kind, hearing from 8500+ women. Two launches on 23 Feb: 10am CET & 11am EST. Register: https://bit.ly/3Ht69hE #EndExploitativeMarketing
