100Breastfed in South Africa

Digital MEdIC South Africa launches nationwide campaign, 100% Breastfed

According to research by the World Health Organization (WHO), breastfeeding could save the lives of over 820,000 children each year. Globally, only 40% of infants under six months of age are exclusively breastfed and in South Africa exclusive breastfeeding rates are amongst the lowest in the world. To address this, Digital MEdIC South Africa has launched 100% Breastfed, a campaign including a series of educational videos that aim to create awareness and reduce the number of infant deaths in under-resourced communities around South Africa. The campaign also provides nurses and healthcare workers educational tools to help new mothers and their families understand the benefits of breastfeeding. Learn more.
