PARENTS AT WORK Leave & Breastfeeding Breaks by Country


Parents at Work: Leave & Breastfeeding Breaks by Country is an advocacy tool developed by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) as part of the Empowering Parents Campaign (EPC). The EPC aims to promote social protection that will facilitate the integration of parents’ productive and reproductive work in both formal and informal sectors.
Family-supportive policies, that enable women to remain and progress in paid employment and encourage men to take their
fair share of care work, are crucial to achieving greater gender equality at work and at home. Decent work includes parental
social protection policies and legislation, public-funded paid leave and parent-friendly or family-friendly workplaces that help
transform social norms, protect workers from job discrimination and help achieve the balance in work and family life for all workers in line with several of the Sustainable Development Goals. τους.
