Society

Medela understands that making significant progress towards the SDGs is an immense undertaking. Only with the support and partnership of other like-minded organizations can we drive change to improve long-term health and societal outcomes. We are committed to advancing these outcomes by supporting parents and clinicians by increasing access to breastfeeding and breast milk feeding resources, education and products. Our impact is amplified by partnering with nonprofit organizations around the world that share our goals.
