The Institute for Health Visiting (iHV) has published a new report, Breastfeeding: A Public Health Priority, following their conference of the same name, joint hosted with RSPH in April 2018. 

The conference programme was designed to illustrate the need for support with breastfeeding and show examples of what integrated services can achieve in the community. The World's Breastfeeding Trends initiative (WBTi) findings and recommendations, which were shared during the day, aim to strengthen health visitor practice and improve public health. 

The report gives a conference summary and details implications for public health.
