Integrated Human Milk Banking approach with FoneAstra

Durban, South Africa |

The Mother and Baby Friendly Initiative Plus is an integrated approach to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding by ensuring access to human milk for all infants and by making donor human milk available for vulnerable newborn babies. Human milk banking is possible in low-resource settings by scaling up the novel FoneAstra milk pasteurization monitor as a low-cost, simple quality control system toolkit, serving as an integral component into a comprehensive breastfeeding awareness campaign. PATH, HMBASA and the Department of Health of South Africa are working together to support this initiative.
