The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is seeking funding from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to repeat the Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care survey (mPINC) for the years 2013 and 2015. Since 2007, the survey has served as a catalyst for hospitals to improve their breastfeeding support through changes in practices and care processes over time. The CDC is requesting comments from the public on the importance of continuing the survey. It is important for breastfeeding advocates to provide comments regarding the effectiveness of the mPINC survey and the necessity of continuing to have access to a tool that has proven to be so effective as a catalyst for change. Comments are due by April 13, 2013. The entire request for public comments can be found here, with background information and instructions for commenting.
