"Sponsorship of paediatric associations by manufacturers of breastmilk substitutes"

The Lancet

Is it right that paediatric meetings should be sponsored by manufacturers of formula milk? There has recently been criticism of an international conference run by the UK Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) in Cairo, Egypt, in January, 2019, that received sponsorship by manufacturers of breastmilk substitutes (BMS).
On Jan 31, 2019, “in light of recent concerns raised by members”, the RCPCH stated “we have made the decision to suspend future funding agreements with formula milk companies pending a College review of our relationships with them”.
