Infant Nutrition and Breast Feeding
The Regional Committee,
Having considered resolution WHA27.43 adopted by the Twenty-seventh World Health Assembly,

- INVITES governments to intensify their efforts to promote education and other measures in support of breast feeding of infants and the wider use of locally based weaning foods;
- REQUESTS the Regional Director to extend technical and other means of assistance available to the Organization in support of the efforts of governments to these ends.
