This advocacy brief is organized into two separate papers. The first half acts as a standalone briefing that highlights the importance of the Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Year of Action, positions breastfeeding within its universal health coverage pillar, and organizes the SMART breastfeeding recommendations into their corresponding N4G commitment types. The latter half provides the rationale for each of the pledges and signposts towards helpful resources, including official guidance notes and case studies, to support country implementation.
