A new collaborative project between WABA and LLLI is being established. A WABA/LLLI Global Breastfeeding Peer Counselling Training Programme specifically geared to train Peer Counsellor Program Administrators is in the works.
The WABA/LLLI PCP trainings would target NGOs, organisations and individuals who would like to become Peer Counsellor Program Administrators to start a Peer Counsellor Programme in their part of the world. The programme will be based on a revised and updated version of the original LLLI material that has proved its worth since the 1980s.
Anne Batterjee, LLLI Board of Director, has been appointed as WABA Steering Committee member for Global position effective from 1st September 2014. With her long involvement with WABA work, Anne is a wonderful addition to the Steering Committee.
