These were some of the topics that the Workshop Breastfeeding and Conflict of Interest addressed at the ISSOP 2015 Annual Conference (International Society for Social Pedatrics and Child Health), organised by Tony Waterston.  The Conference was in Geneva and GIFA-IBFAN presented their experiences and position on Conflict of Interest. Gisela, Rebecca and Patti (via Skype) answered questions from a  lively and committed audience. Many participants will now make links with national IBFAN groups.

`I recently attended a medical conference and Nestlé was on the cover of the program. Then I did not really think about it, but next time I will raise the issue`, said one participant from Australia.
