WHO Code training in Toronto

IBFAN's International Code Document Centre
experts talk about historical efforts to
curb deadly infant formula marketing,
and how it lead to the WHO/UNICEF
move to create the
International Code of Marketing
of Breastmilk Subsittudes
I have just completed a three day training workshop on how to monitor for violations of the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes. I plan to blog in more detail shortly. For now, please take a look at the daily summaries of the live-tweets from the workshop (and follow #WHOCode and #nonestle on Twitter for ongoing updates on Code issues and actions.) If you are interested in a little more of history of how the Code was created, see this YouTube excerpt of the 1984 BBC film, "When Breasts are Bad for Business."
