Sponsorship and Exhibitors

ACNN promotes and supports breastfeeding for newborns. As health professionals, neonatal nurses must provide consistent, objective advice to mothers on supplying breastmilk as the best available nutrition for their infant and also on breastmilk substitutes where these are required.

ACNN complies with the MAIF Agreement in relation to trade exhibition at ACNN events by companies marketing infant formula. ACNN accepts further sponsorship in the form of unrestricted education grants as set out in International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) Minimising Commercial Influence on Education Policy.
