Exclusive Breastfeeding in Madagascar

A video produced by U.S. Peace Corps volunteers in Madagascar to promote exclusive breastfeeding – newborns drinking only breast milk for at least the first six months of life.

Through their experience, the PCVs had learned that many Malagasy women breastfeed their children, but not exclusively. Over 50 percent of Malagasy children under age five face developmental delays because they lack proper nutrition. Exclusive breastfeeding is an easy way to ensure babies receive the nutrition they need.

This video was made with support from USAID's Small Project Assistance (SPA) Program, which funds small scale self-help activities implemented by Peace Corps Volunteers.
