According to the Brazilian Cooperation Agency, the event is an opportunity to exchange experiences about human milk banks, as well as other countries being able to learn about this experience.

Human milk banks represent a "strategic initiative to promote, protect and support breastfeeding, involving the collection, processing and distribution of milk to premature or low birth weight babies who cannot be fed by their mothers, in addition to offering support and guidance on breastfeeding", highlights ABC, cited in the CPLP note.
