Teaching the Importance of Breastfeeding
Informing new mothers
A maternity nurse at Koja District Hospital in North Jakarta shows a young mother how to breastfeed shortly after giving birth. About 1.5 million people live in North Jakarta, and many live in densely populated slums. In 2007 a diarrhea outbreak in the community, caused by contaminated water, sickened many babies under six months of age who had been given formula.
