Provide innovative education and networking.
Provide access to and interpretation of lactation research.
Build capacity for future leaders.
Champion the IBCLC as the premiere lactation credential.
Advance breastfeeding on the global agenda.

ILCA GLOBAL PARTNER PROGRAM
Organizations around the world – from established international organizations to emerging national and regional groups – are all working toward improving breastfeeding outcomes. Imagine the impact if these groups had a way to link together goals, break down barriers, and pursue common objectives.
ILCA's Global Partner Program is facilitating dialogue and creating new linkages among organizations at the international, national, regional, and local level. Our goal: creating new synergies that support international, national, and regional programs while simultaneously identifying and facilitating the needs of emerging breastfeeding-related organizations.
