Trump Claims U.S. Attempts To Water Down Breast Feeding Resolution Was Due To Opposition To Formula Limits

The Washington Post: U.S. Effort To Weaken An International Breast-Feeding Resolution Has A Long History

An aggressive effort by U.S. officials to weaken an international resolution to promote breast-feeding  this year is the latest example of the government taking an industry's side in global public health, advocates said. This spring, U.S. officials threatened negative trade consequences for Ecuador if the country introduced a resolution to the World Health Assembly to encourage breast-feeding, according to a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly. That person said there had been significant lobbying of U.S. representatives in Switzerland by the infant-formula industry over the issue. Ecuador's Ministry of Health did not reply to a request for comment. (Johnson and Erickson, 7/9)
