O Comitê vai apoiar a elaboração das ações de aleitamento materno no Estado

Participants in the National Breastfeeding Week produced an action plan for breastfeeding. For this, we worked three themes: encouraging breastfeeding in Primary Care, hospital care and institutions of secondary and higher education. During the event, was proposed to create a State Board of Breastfeeding to act in the discussions and support the Roraima State Health Secretary (Sesau) in implementing the proposals made by participants.

Training of health professionals and community and the realization of the 3rd Seminar on Breast-feeding were included in the plan. With this, the services offered in primary care can be improved due to the qualification of servers. To orient the community about the importance of breastfeeding for the baby's life until the first six months of life, we intend to build a support group for breastfeeding in the community. Today, in Boa Vista, the service is only offered at the Milk Bank's Maternal and Child Hospital Our Lady of Nazareth (HMINSN).

According to the manager of the Center for Programmed Actions for Child and Adolescent, Valentina Vieira, the group would work with health education. In it, people can ask questions about breastfeeding. Additionally, professionals have an important role in sensitizing, informing pregnant women about the benefits provided by breastfeeding for both mother and the baby.

Also according to Valentina, was suggested to conduct a search from inside the municipalities of Roraima on the prevalence of breastfeeding. Thus, the state would have a control over the situation of breastfeeding, for example, how long women are breastfeeding. With the creation of the State Committee for Breastfeeding, the Sesau would have the support of health professionals from the Committee to implement the proposals made by participants in the National Breastfeeding Week.
