South Asia - Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative in South Asia : Implementing Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding - India, Nepal, and Bangladesh Challenges and Opportunities (English)

This report documents the challenges and opportunities for implementing the baby-friendly hospital initiative (BFHI) and ten steps to successful breastfeeding (hereinafter called the ten steps) in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. While BFHI was not being implemented well in Nepal and India, Bangladesh had recently made efforts to strengthen BFHI implementation. Therefore, a qualitative study was planned in India and Nepal to find out challenges and barriers, and a case study was planned in Bangladesh to find out success factors. This report highlights not only challenges but also explores opportunities and provides recommendations for the successful implementation of BFHI and ten steps in the three South Asian countries.
