Trump admin opposed resolution that promotes breastfeeding

In a Monday afternoon tweet, Trump indicated that the Times mischaracterized the administration's reasons for opposing the initiative. Starting infants out on a substitute in a maternity ward can make breastfeeding more hard for mothers later.

A Guardian/Save the Children investigation in some of the most deprived areas of the Philippines found that Nestlé and three other companies were offering doctors, midwives and local health workers free trips to lavish conferences, meals, tickets to shows and the cinema and even gambling chips, earning their loyalty.

Limiting inaccurate infant formula marketing is most necessary in some of the poorest parts of the world, according to a Guardian investigation published earlier this year in partnership with the global nongovernmental organization Save the Children.

Lactation is tricky terrain, particularly for women in the workplace, who must find the time and space to pump breast milk with certain frequency or risk their supply drying up.

In addition to the trade threats, an Ecuadorean government official told the Times the US threatened to withdrawal military support from northern Ecuador, where violence from boarding Colombia causes ongoing issues.

On Sunday, the NY Times revealed that the Trump administration tried to "water down" the passage of a resolution to promote breastfeeding during the World Health Assembly in May: "Based on decades of research, the resolution says that mother's milk is healthiest for children and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes".

When that failed, they turned to threats, according to diplomats and government officials who took part in the discussions. In defense of formula and its makers, the U.S. also reportedly threatened Ecuador with trade sanctions in retaliation for advancing the resolution.

The tension over the breastfeeding resolution came to a head in Geneva in May, when the decision-making body of the World Health Organization held its annual meeting for government officials and other stakeholders to discuss a range of health policy issues.

But Trump said that the Times left out some crucial information: namely, that the administration supports breastfeeding, but that it doesn't want to limit women's access to formula when they need it.

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated during the first week in August every year in more than 170 countries to encourage breastfeeding and improve the health of babies around the world. The spokesman asked to remain anonymous in order to speak more freely. "There is no one claims infant formula is superior to breast milk".

"The milk formula industry has been struggling against stagnating sales in recent years, but is still worth $70 billion annually".

According to Suzanne Ehlers, president and CEO of reproductive rights organization PAI, the Trump administration has aggressively cut back USA support for public-health efforts aimed at women. The US has denied allegations it threatened any country during negotiations.

The U.S. leaders fought unsuccessfully to deprive poor countries access to life-saving medication and were able to get statements supporting the removal of soda taxes from guidelines of the countries struggling with increasing obesity rates.

However, the USA ultimately was unsuccessful.
