Cuban Healthcare System Favors Breastfeeding
Monday, July 22, 2019



Havana.- The Cuban healthcare system promotes actions in favor of breastfeeding, with emphasis on the creation of human milk banks.

According to specialists, all ten centers of this kind in the country protect seriously ill newborns who cannot receive the product from their mothers.

At the same time, the medical personnel devote more than 75 percent of their work to stimulate the development of breastfeeding, which is very beneficial for the mother and the baby.

Studies show that 33 percent of children in Cuba are exclusively breastfed until they are six months of age, while in previous years that indicator reached 50 percent.

In that regard, they confirmed that breastfeeding exclusively for up to six months and supplementing that action until two years is the best option.
