About WBW and the Action Folder

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every 1-7 August since 1992 by breastfeeding supporters in over 170 countries. It is endorsed and supported by UNICEF, WHO, FAO and ministries of health in many countries. The WBW action folder is a global advocacy tool for breastfeeding advocates to highlight breastfeeding issues. An action folder is a six-page information sheet that provides introduction and discussion of the chosen theme, examples and data where relevant, ideas for action, resources and regional WBW contacts. Visit for samples of previous action folders. As a social mobilising tool, the action folder also carries colourful images/pictures to make it more interesting and readable.
