GHMP lightning talk at Global Nursing Caucus Conference

Breastfeeding support can be provided at scale and at very low cost using teaching videos. This was the main point of Peter Cardellichio’s lightning talk, given at the Global Nursing Caucus Conference on October 15, 2016. The lack of breastfeeding support available to new mothers worldwide is one of the key reasons more mothers aren’t successful in exclusively breastfeeding their babies until they are six months old.

The conference—organized by Seed Global Health, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Global Nursing Caucus—brought together nurse leaders, clinicians, and educators from around the world to discuss the critical role of nurses in strengthening health systems. The conference provided opportunities for nurses and other health colleagues to share best practices and core competencies for global health and inter-professional education.

GHMP videos shared at WABA Forum

Our breastfeeding videos—now available in Malay—were presented at the WABA Global Breastfeeding Partner Forum (Oct 2-5, 2016, held in Malaysia) by Nor Kamariah Mohamad Alwi. Kamariah shared her experience in using the videos to help train breastfeeding counselors in the skills they need to guide and assist their peers.

The videos were translated into Malay by Kamariah and several other volunteers from the Malaysian Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Association. Kamariah also narrated the videos and received local support from the BOM Production recording studio.
