Question: Does the Code restrict promotional activities to health workers and in health care settings?
 

Answer: The Code and subsequent relevant WHA resolutions call for a total prohibition of any type of promotion of products that fall within their scope in the health services.

Furthermore, donations of free or subsidized supplies of breast-milk substitutes or other products, as well as gifts or personal samples to health workers, are not allowed in any part of the health care system. Also, information provided by manufacturers and distributors to health professionals regarding products should be restricted to scientific and factual matters.
