The Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) is a global program of the World Health Organization and UNICEF. The aim of this program is to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
Baby-Friendly hospitals and community health services are committed to provide a high standard of care in relation to infant feeding for all pregnant women and new families.
Toronto Public Health (TPH) successfully achieved Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) Re-Designation in 2018. TPH initially received this globally recognized designation in 2013. This means Toronto residents continue to receive high quality infant feeding services.
