The project consisted of two-day Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop titled "Improving Breastfeeding Education in Sub-Saharan Africa". This event took place on 15-16 March 2023 in Dakar, Senegal.
The training was hosted in collaboration with the Municipality of Dakar with the goal of bringing together fifty midwives and nurses from Senegal, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Gavon, and Mali to provide training and learning solutions and tools to improve breastfeeding initiation and duration rates.
The ToT was primarily aligned with SDGs 2 and 3, as promoting breastfeeding education includes ending hunger, improving nutrition, and promoting health and well-being. This workshop in Sub-Saharan Africa has been the first example to respond to the goal of increasing exclusive breastfeeding outlined in the Global Breastfeeding Education Initiative.
