Policy on Formula

Update on Sponsorship Policy 

The Board of the Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand (PSANZ) has decided that the society will no longer accept sponsorship from companies that produce or market infant formula. 
PSANZ has always supported breastfeeding and will continue to do so. PSANZ understands that specialised breastmilk substitutes are essential for the survival of some babies who cannot breastfeed. PSANZ will therefore continue to engage with formula milk companies in work related to the development and use of these specialised milks, but no further funding will be accepted. 
The PSANZ Board is thankful for all sponsors that have contributed to the development of our multidisciplinary society supporting high-quality perinatal research and the success of our annual events. An action plan and updated sponsorship policy that reflects these changes will be available in due course.
