The Global Health Network and the Family Larsson Rosenquist Foundation (FLRF) launch LactaHub: an open access knowledge platform featuring scientific and evidence-based information on breastfeeding and breastmilk for health professionals

Logos: TGHN and the Family Larsson Rosenquist Foundation

The Global Health Network and FLRF have created LactaHub to enable health professionals, decision-makers and researchers to be more effective in their daily work.

LactaHub is where scientific and evidence-based knowledge about breastfeeding and breastmilk will be brought together in a structured, practice-oriented manner. All content will be reviewed and verified for quality by an independent scientific editorial board, and made freely available.

LactaHub aims to become a thriving community of practice in the field of breastfeeding by:

  • Ensuring equal access to the best guidance and knowledge available, in one central location
  • Simplifying the search for objective information that has been independently verified
  • Opening new channels for knowledge transfer among health professionals – without physical or financial borders
