Campaign Launch Breastfeeding Nourishment for Life

Dear Friends, 

Greetings from Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India(BPNI)!

Breastfeeding is a human right for both mothers and babies. Unfortunately, this right is being denied to them as about 1 out of 2 women are unable to practice exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months. And the formula milk is being promoted indiscriminately.

To fight that BPNI has recently launched a campaign to garner volunteer and donation support from across the country. The aim of the campaign is to generate awareness among people about breastfeeding and the areas that lack support from the government to facilitate successful breastfeeding.

Also, it envisages gaining bigger volunteer support in the area of monitoring of bad marketing of baby foods, propagating this campaign, signing petitions and supporting mothers in community with the correct information.  

The campaign is launched through The Logical Indian website and social media handles. The logical Indian is a digital media platform with over 6.5 million subscribers.

You can read The Logical Indian Story and watch the campaign film at the link below

We have simultaneously launched the campaign on BPNI's YouTube, Facebook and Twitter account for wider reach.

Here is the YouTube link of the campaign film:

We look forward to your support for this campaign.

Please share, volunteer and support in great strength!

Thank you!

Best,

Team BPNI

Dear Donors,

Greetings from BPNI!

In July 2014 our Honorable Prime Minister of India in his 17 point agenda recognized the need to prevent conflict of interest in public policies and urged for a legal framework. To curb corruption in the country prevention and management of Conflict of Interest in public policy and programmes can become a game changer, therefore, it's important to start a dialogue about this crucial issue in the public domain in public interest.

With this background on behalf of Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India and Swadeshi Jagran Manch organized the "Roundtable Conference on Conflict of Interest in Public Policy" on 11th September 2018, India International Centre, Max Mueller Road, Lodhi Estate, New Delhi. 

The key objectives of the roundtable discussion were to understand the definition and concept of conflicts of interest, share examples of conflict of interest in public policy and to share tools for prevention and management of Conflict of Interest.

The keynote address was made by Sh.Rajiv Kumar, Vice Chairman, Niti Aayog and remarks were given by Mr.Ranith Roy, Member, Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister (PMEAC). The brainstorming session was chaired by Sh.K.C.Tyagi, Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha)

42 participants from the fields of law, political science, social work, human rights, governance, people's movement, sociology, economics, food technology, public health, nutrition, science participated. As for recommendations, a consensus was built that the Government of India should formulate National COI guidelines, rules and a legal framework to prevent and manage COI situations to curb potential corruption in public policies.
