    The Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) has been involved in policy change and development at all levels. On the international level, there have been the following major initiatives during the 1990s: the Innocenti Policy Makers Meeting, the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), and the Women's Conference in Beijing. IRH has also worked with the International Federation for Family Life Promotion, an organization whose policies and norms have international implications. Actions undertaken by the IRH to influence the development of policy at the Beijing Conference and as it would be contained in the ICPD's program of action are described. IRH efforts proved successful, with the final ICPD document including 12 references to breastfeeding rather than the one reference to child survival originally. Eight references were made to breastfeeding in the final Beijing document.
