Aim of the project

The aim of a conference held in Uppsala, Sweden, in September 2011, was to present and discuss evidence for expansion of the WHO/UNICEF 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding for neonatal intensive and intermediate care, including care of late preterm infants in postnatal units.

This initiative was taken by an expert group from the Nordic countries and Quebec, Canada, in response to the document “Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative. Revised, Updated and Expanded for Integrated Care”, UNICEF/WHO 2009, link
