Virtual Health Library Breastfeeding (BVS-AM)

The Virtual Health Library Breastfeeding (BVS-AM) is a collective construction project of national scope, coordinated by the Latin American and Caribbean Center for Health Sciences Information - Bireme / Opas / WHO. The BVS-AM is guided by a National Advisory Committee under the leadership of Fiocruz, through a partnership between the Institute of Scientific and Technological Communication and Information in Health (Icict), a Library of Women and Children´s Health and the National Institute of Women, Children and Adolescents Health Fernandes Figueira (IFF), through its Human Milk Bank, national reference center of the Brazilian Network of Human Milk Banks (rBLH-BR).

The purpose of the BVS-AM is to promote the cooperative and decentralized operation of the network of sources of scientific and technical information on Breastfeeding in order to provide equitable access and stimulate the use of up-to-date scientific and technical information related to the promotion of breastfeeding and management of human milk banks.
