Healthy Children and Adolescents

Who are Children and Adolescents?

Our children are the future, and in order to give them a chance at a healthier life, we must change and strengthen our approach to providing a healthy and safe environment for them.

15% increase in the level of exclusive breast-feeding of children at 6 months of age
