ABA's 60th anniversary

Message from our president

Congratulations to ABA on the 60th anniversary, I am looking forward to celebrating this incredible milestone with our members, volunteers, and supporters.   

Our anniversary year gives ABA the opportunity to reflect on what we have achieved in the past and look to meeting the expectations and needs of mothers and families into the next 60 years! There is still so much more for ABA to do to achieve its goals for breastfeeding to be seen as the norm for infant feeding and to see Australia as a breastfeeding friendly society.  

During our 60th year, the ABA Board looks forward to meeting up with as many members and volunteers as possible. We will also be looking at ways to affect policy and societal change to remove barriers for mothers to successfully breastfeed for as long as they choose to. Watch this space for further details as we celebrate our 60th anniversary.
