Do policies and programs in Australia respect, protect and fulfil the rights of women and children to access information and support for health and nutrition:
- through policies and programs that recognise the economic and cultural value of raising children;
- through the provision of unobstructed access to evidence-based woman-centred care in the health system;
- through regulation of marketing of breast-milk substitutes and foods for infants and young children;
- through the provision of workplace protections and policies that enable families to care for their children in the early years’;
- though national regulation requiring skills and knowledge of the full scope of women’s health by Australian Health Professional Regulation Authority (AHPRA);
- through referral and support in the healthcare system to trained counsellors and specialists for infant and young child feeding;
- through national health campaigns that educate the public on the global recommendations for women and children to optimise health and nutrition;
- through health care and maternity services that are reflective of the most current global recommendations for mothers and HIV;
- by a national emergency plan that provides adequate guidance on the care of mothers and their children in emergencies; and
- through the routine collection of data relating to the most basic and essential health measures?
