The Lagos government encourages exclusively breastfeeding for infants.

By enhancing the ability of stakeholders, policymakers, healthcare professionals, and community influencers to promote and support the practice across the many levels of society, the Lagos State Government has pushed for the maintenance of exclusive breastfeeding. Dr. Olusegun Ogboye, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health, reportedly said this on Thursday during a news conference that was held to discuss the state government's plans for commemorating World Breastfeeding Week in 2022.


Ogboye continued by saying that the government would keep sector participants informed, educated, and empowered to create and maintain breastfeeding-friendly conditions.


"Step up for breastfeeding: Educate and support," he stated, "was carefully picked as the topic for the 2022 World Breastfeeding Week because it focuses on increasing the capacity to preserve, promote, and encourage breastfeeding across different levels of society.


Policymakers, healthcare professionals, and community influencers all fall into this warm network of breastfeeding support actors. "Breastfeeding provides food security for infants and avoids hunger and malnutrition in all of its manifestations.


Breast milk is readily available, pure, safe, and has the proper combination of nutrients for infants.
