A successful comprehensive information and awareness-raising campaign by the Greek General Secretariat for Gender Equality on the World Breastfeeding Week 2017

Aug 28, 2017




The General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has already uploaded both on the Greek and the English pages of its website on the internet and the facebook the promotional material on the message of the World Breastfeeding Weeek 2017.

Despite the fact that the text is in Greek, you will recognize the link to the WABA material in the detailed Greek article and the photo of the WABA poster on the facebook at once. The relevant links are the following:

b) English version of our website: http://www.isotita.gr/en/world-breastfeeding-week-2017/

c) our page on the facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Γενική-Γραμματεία-Ισότητας-των-Φύλων-388822604594196/(it is undelined that until noon 24-8-2017 the relevant article had attracted the attention of 2947 persons).

In addition, the message of the World Breastfeeding Week 2017 has already been communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece and on abroad. The recipients of our comprehensive message have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Representations of Greece to the International Organizations, the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Administrative Reconstruction, the Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs, the Ministry of Labour, Social Security & Social Solidarity, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Culture & Sports, the Ministry of Justice, Transparency & Human Rights, the Ministry of Rural Development, all the key social partners, as well as the European Commission, the European Parliament and the World Bank.

Furthermore, after a proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Development & Support of Policies on Gender Equality, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality issued a press release in Greek on 23-8-2017 on the topic, which gained great publicity among the Mass Media and social media in Greece: http://www.isotita.gr/δελτίο-τύπου-παγκόσμια-εβδομάδα-θηλα/ .

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of the role of the World Alliance on Breastfeeding Action on women’s empowerment and equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek and foreign stakeholders. After all, the WABA material and documents can serve as a useful tool to design, implement and evaluate policies on gender equality in the framework of the SDGs (Agenda 2030).
