The ISPAN goal is to improve the continuity of care and support for breastfeeding in communities, improving links between hospitals, primary care providers, WIC clinics/services, early childhood education centers, worksites, and social and community programs and services to support low-income, rural, African-American and/or Latina moms meet their breastfeeding goals.
