Dr Azad shares a new breastfeeding research action plan with CHRIM - tackling tensions in a contentious field of work.
Human milk and the act of breastfeeding are critical in the development and maintenance of infant and maternal health. In an interview with CHRIM, Dr. Azad described how the research in this area has greatly improved our understanding of the origins of human health but has been fraught with increased tension between the research community and breastfeeding advocate groups. The workshop, “Breastfeeding and the Origins of Health: Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Priorities,” organized by Drs Azad and Nickel, gathered experts from around the world to address these issues. The proceedings from this workshop describe key barriers in breastfeeding and human milk research and present an action plan to keep this important research moving forward.
