Receiving enough breastmilk during the initial stages of life establishes an important foundation in a child’s development. It has far reaching benefits and provides immunity against various diseases newborns otherwise have no protections against.
UNICEF works with the government to enforce the Control of Marketing of Infant and Young Child Food Act. The act promotes more breastfeeding, educates and protects mothers from misleading and unethical marketing of baby formula products. This critical work cannot be done without your support. Support our work for every child by making donation today to allow them to reach their full potential.
UNICEF is contributing to national efforts to expand testing for COVID-19 by providing testing reagents worth 5 million baht. The reagents will support Bamrasnaradura Infectious Diseases Institute (BIDI) to help increase its testing capacity in support of Thailand’s fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
