Annotated Code & Resolutions 2016 Edition

The 3rd edition of our annotated compilation of the International Code of Breastmilk Substitutes and relevant World Health Assembly (WHA) resolutions has just returned from the printers. This latest edition, released to coincide with the New Year, contains the full Code as well as all relevant WHA resolutions and the latest 2014 WHA decision on maternal, infant and young child nutrition. Each document comes with a brief summary of the main points and key wording is highlighted with underlined text.

IBFANers familiar with this publication will know that this annotated compilation provides a unique and easy reference to the Code and subsequent resolutions which clarified or extended certain provisions of the Code. With the inclusion of the 2014 WHA decision, this annotated compilation – long a necessary favourite publication among Code aficionados – has finally caught up with the times.


To celebrate the New Year, IBFAN-ICDC is pleased to offer a free electronic copy of this latest edition to all IBFAN groups and supporters to thank them for their ongoing support. Please let us know from which country you are and email [email protected] to request for one. This offer is valid until end of January 2016.


By making these documents accessible, IBFAN-ICDC hopes the Code will continue to flourish for the protection of infant and young child health at both international and national levels.
