Q: What's the WHO code?
A: The International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes is an international health policy framework for breastfeeding promotion adopted by the World Health Assembly (WHA) of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1981.The Code was developed as a global public health strategy and recommends restrictions on the marketing of breastmilk substitutes, such as infant formula, to ensure that mothers are not discouraged from breastfeeding and that substitutes are used safely if needed. The Code also covers ethical considerations and regulations for the marketing of feeding bottles and teats. (citation needed)

Q: Does that mean I can't hold an event at a store that sells bottles or formula? (Just a clarification example based on the other thread)
A: No, not at all. They simply may not take place in spaces that advertise and/or promote breast-milk substitutes, including but not limited to: image displays and/or promotional material advertising breast-milk substitutes and sales, free samples or discounts, or coupons for breast-milk substitutes as defined by the Code.

Q: Can we give goody bags, or raffle, or auction?
A: Sure thing! In the case that the organisers seek sponsors for their events or engage in rifes, silent auctions, goody bags or any kind of giveaway, the products and information involved should be in compliance of the Code, which means that no breastmilk substitutes must be involved, and that all products involved must be manufactured by companies that comply with the code.

A: Absolutely! only condition is that your sponsors are WHO Code compliant. For a list of who code compliant companies, click here.

Q: Can we hire speakers, rent a space or other activities from which third parties will profit?
A: Of course! You can do whatever you feel is required to host your event, as long as your event honors the goals of WMW, is WHO complaiant, the organisers don't profit from it and you do not promote the sale of breastmilk.
