Hospital interventions in support of breastfeeding have been highly successful in areas where the indigenous population has a well established environment of breastfeeding.
However, programmes designed to improve breastfeeding patterns in urban populations have met with mixed success.
This paper presents a prospective intervention study with a control group in which a health system-based breastfeeding promotion programme was initiated to support optimal breastfeeding for both child health and child spacing.
Following collection of control data, a four-step intervention programme (Breastfeeding Promotion Program) was instituted.
