BACKGROUND OF THE PROGRAM'S INITIATIVES
Exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months does wonder to the health of a child,according to the World Health Organization(WHO).
Breast Milk is seen as the best way to improve the health of children as it contains the necessary nutrients the body can absorb. By not consuming human milk in the first few months of infancy, a child becomes more prone to life-threatening diseases.
Unfortunately, only 34% of infants under 6 months were exclusively breastfed and only 34% continue breastfeeding until two years old according to the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef)'s 2014 State of the World’s Children report. This puts the country among the top nations with the most number of children not exclusively breastfed.
