Reports and discussion papers

Alive & Thrive is an initiative that aims to improve infant and young child feeding practices by increasing rates of exclusive breastfeeding and ameliorating complementary feeding practices. This toolkit provides information and guidance for institutions, companies, and other organizations seeking to improve lactation support for working mothers within the workplace setting. The information provided in the toolkit is based on the best practices of a model piloted in Vietnam in partnership with the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor. This resource is particularly useful to employers interested in implementing a lactation support program by providing adequate space for expressing and storing breastmilk while at work.
