Add to Calendar September 29 9:00 am September 29 10:15 am America/New_York Webinar 2: Should health professional associations refuse industry funding?

For decades, the formula milk industry has aggressively marketed their products – despite the negative impact on child and maternal health and human rights, and despite an International Code agreed by all countries to restrict this marketing.

Formula milk companies don’t just target parents in their marketing. They also systematically target the people parents often trust the most – their health professionals – to influence their beliefs, training and advice.

Join the World Health Organization (WHO), The BMJ, the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH) and Children in All Policies 2030 (CAP2030) in a webinar series that will expose industry marketing tactics to influence health professionals. Webinar 1 will hear from health professionals about their experiences of formula milk marketing and ideas for how to counter it. Webinar 2 will explore the role of health professional associations in using their voice and power to take a stand.
