Why and how does breastfeeding concern us all?

Breastfeeding concerns us all and that is what this year’s theme for World Breastfeeding Week is all about: “Sustaining Breastfeeding Together”. Each year, World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated globally in the first week of August (1st -7th). Organisations come together to encourage greater awareness about different topics regarding breastfeeding. So why and how does breastfeeding concern us all? In an emergency setting, like the one I am in now in northern South Sudan, breastfeeding can mean life or death for a child below two years of age. In a high-income setting, like the Netherlands where I am from, breastfeeding has the potential to, among other things, protect children from obesity.
