Breast feeding decree

A newly passed sub-decree will make Cambodia the 125th country to have implemented

the International Code of Marketing Breastmilk Substitutes. Minister of Health Dr

Nuth Sokhom said that "Cambodia is one step closer to seeing her children receive

the best start to life."

Exclusive breastfeeding could prevent as much as 16 percent of these childhood deaths,

Sokhom said. The new legislation, when enforced, will put strong curbs on the commercial

promotion of artificial baby feeding products.
