Sign up to take action against formula companies’ egregious violations of the World Health Organization’s guidelines for formula marketing known as “the Code.”
On May 21, 1981, the WHO adopted the Code to end formula corporations’ targeting of women and co-option of health care providers.
Nearly half of the world’s countries have adopted legislative measures to implement the Code, but in the U.S. — as a result of formula industry lobbying — legislation remains out of reach.
Let’s use the anniversary of the Code to hold accountable the entities most responsible for deceiving women — Mead Johnson (makers of Enfamil), Abbott (Similac) and Nestle (Gerber).
Participate in May 21 actions ranging from sending a message online to delivering a petition to Mead Johnson.
