Athens, 2-8-2018 To: - EIGE.
Following our fruitful cooperation (see relevant link from the WABA website: http://worldbreastfeedingweek.org/2015/pdf/los-greek-gov.pdf ), I would like to inform you that the General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has already uploaded both on the Greek and the English pages of its website on the internet and the facebook the promotional material on the message of the World Breastfeeding Weeek 2018.
Despite the fact that the text is in Greek, you will recognize the link to the WABA material in the detailed Greek article and the photo of the WABA poster on the facebook at once. The relevant links are the following:
a) website: http://www.isotita.gr/%CF%80%CE%B1%CE%B3%CE%BA%CF%8C%CF%83%CE%BC%CE%B9%CE%B1-%CE%B5%CE%B2%CE%B4%CE%BF%CE%BC%CE%AC%CE%B4%CE%B1-%CE%B8%CE%B7%CE%BB%CE%B1%CF%83%CE%BC%CE%BF%CF%8D-2018-%CE%BC%CE%B5-%CF%84%CE%BF-%CF%83%CF%8D/

In addition, the message of the World Breastfeeding Week 2018 has already been communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece and on abroad. The recipients of our comprehensive message have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Representations of Greece to the International Organizations, all Ministries, all the key social partners, as well as the European Commission, the European Parliament and a series of other international organizations.
Furthermore, after a proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Planning, Standardization & Policy Monitoring on Gender Equality, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality issued a press release in Greek on 1-8-2018 on the topic, which gained great publicity among the Mass Media and social media in Greece:
Here are some indicative links:
In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of the role of the World Alliance on Breastfeeding Action on women's empowerment and equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek and foreign stakeholders. After all, the WABA material and documents can serve as a useful tool to design, implement and evaluate policies on gender equality in the framework of the SDGs (Agenda 2030).
The Greek side would be grateful to you if you informed your leadership and all the competent units accordingly.
Wishing you and all the members of your team the very best,
