The new Healthy People 2020 health goals for the United States were released with strong support for breastfeeding. The new target for breastfeeding initiation is 81.9%. Three new goals have been added: increase the proportion of employers that have worksite lactation support programs; reduce the proportion of breastfed newborns who receive formula supplementation within the first 2 days of life; and increase the proportion of live births that occur in facilities that provide recommended care for lactating mothers and their babies (Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative policies).
