On Tuesday 11th September, First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo had the greatest pleasure of launching this year’s World Breastfeeding Week and promotional campaign in Kumasi. The benefits of breastfeeding cannot be overemphasized.

We all know breast-milk is the most nutritionally potent food for infants and toddlers and provides the essentials for brain development. Breastfeeding prevents malnutrition in all its forms, ensures food security for infants and young children and takes people out of the hunger and poverty cycle. It is indeed a key foundation of life.

A recent study conducted in the West and Central Africa regions by UNICEF and the World Health Organization shows that Ghana recorded the highest increase in the rate of early initiation of breastfeeding. This is indeed good news. No doubt, this is due to the hard work of the Ghana Health Service and her partners.

While she applauded the results of a collective effort, Rebecca Akufo-Addo believes more can be done to improve the rate of early initiation of breastfeeding, to ensure that more women and children reap its health benefits.
