If you’ve been thinking that 'baby-friendly' is a US thing, or a new approach to mother-baby care, you need to tune in for the real story. Join Marie as she talks with Dr. Belsey about how he and the late James Grant realized that breastfeeding was an essential to the WHO’s mission of 'Health for All' worldwide and developed the BFHI. It wasn’t a smooth ride, but it has been vitally important to global health, as the 25 years since its inception have shown.
