CELEBRATING WORLD BREASTFEEDING WEEK: APPLICATIONS OPEN TODAY

210801_TEP Opens.jpg

Breastfeeding is the single most effective intervention to improve a baby’s health and chance for a better life. Yet despite decades of investment, breastfeeding rates are still frustratingly low: millions of women and families worldwide don’t have the support they need to provide breastmilk to their children. It’s time for new ideas to accelerate progress.

New ideas are exactly what emerge from Trainee Expansion Program grant recipients. This is why we and ISRHML recharged TEP for 5 more years, offering 2 types of grant – up to USD 10,000 or up to USD 100,000 – to early career researchers in human milk and lactation. 2021 applications open today! 

In honour of #WBW2021, we will showcase past grant recipients throughout the week on LinkedIn. Stay tuned … or visit the TEP Hall of Fame if you can’t wait.
