DOST's pitch for breastfeeding. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo presents the signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) and the Children for Breastfeeding, Inc (CfB) on May 17, 2010 at the Rizal Hall, Malacañang, Manila. The MoU aims to prop up PCHRD’s advocacy for breastfeeding through scientific research supportive to policies and guidelines that would further strengthen the government's Evidence-based Research Center.
