WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO INVEST INTO BREAST-FEEDING AND HOW TO AMELIORATE ITS PRACTICE?
Nowadays, the breast-feeding, despite the approved advantages, is not a standard in many communities. The multi-factorial determinants determining its prevalence need to be supported at various levels - from legal and legislative one to views and values of society, conditions of women's labor and also health care system that can develop a favorable environment for breast-feeding. The breast-feeding effects positively on health, economic development and ecology and therefor it is a benefit for children, women and whole society in short-term and long-term perspective. The defense, propaganda and support of breast-feeding need a political will, and financial investments to implement its advantages.
