Spotlight on Women's Health

Breastfeeding, A Public Health Issue

The first week of August is World Breastfeeding Week (August 1-7), and Utah celebrates the year-round efforts of promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding. The Surgeon General Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding brought to light this as a public health issue. Programs at The Utah Department of Health (UDOH), including the Healthy Living through Environment, Policy & Improved Clinical Care (EPICC) and Maternal and Infant Health programs, strategically support breastfeeding by assisting hospitals and workplaces through grants funded by the CDC and HRSA.
