Inequities exist in both breastfeeding rates and the availability of lactation support professionals. We see disparities related to race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geography, and many other factors. These issues are extremely important to address and WBC aims to support state and local efforts to improve and eliminate disparities and structural inequities.

As a member of the United States Breastfeeding Committee, WBC strives to learn from and model their example as they continue to prioritize equity in all they do. You can find more information about their approach and resources here.
