Its been long since I communicated, it has been a challenging time.  This was followed by an interesting period for me because I was chosen and trained by IBFAN Uganda and Ministry of Health as a national assessor for Baby Friendly Health Facility initiative (BFHI) It is a very good opportunity for me discovering many gaps that need to be covered in relation to breastfeeding. All health facilities visited for both internal and external assessment have no mother support groups except only the one I work with. Most of them do not achieve even 6 steps so its a big task set ahead for me. There are many gaps on breastfeeding among the clinical staff.  I am working on a proposal to support some of the health facilities to become baby friendly.

Wishing you all the best.
