Breaches Of The Who International Code Of Marketing Of Breastmilk Substitutes In The Philippines

EDM number 986 in 2017-19, proposed by Alison Thewliss on 27/02/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Asia, Children and families, Companies and Food.

That this House condemns the violations of both Philippines law and the World Health Organisation code by Nestlé, Mead Johnson and Wyeth; notes that the investigation by the Guardian and Save the Children found that formula companies are continuing to use aggressive, clandestine and often illegal methods to target mothers and health professionals in the Philippines; is concerned that reported targeting of mothers in impoverished areas has resulted in child and maternal malnutrition, as well as increased hospital admission due to diarrhea; and calls on the Government to use its international influence to condemn such violations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
