Facility Data Sheet
This online tool is used to gather additional facility information and key data such as your breastfeeding initiation and exclusivity rates. We also provide a guide for completing the Facility Data Sheet. Once your facility is registered, you will have access to these documents via the BFUSA portal.
An online tool is used to provide your facility with a benchmark for implementation of the Baby-Friendly Guidelines and Evaluation Criteria. It is neither scored nor graded by BFUSA. It is a tool for your facility to use to develop a plan for meeting the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding. Once your facility is registered, you will have access to this document via the BFUSA portal.
Once you have formally registered and been enrolled into the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, you will receive login information that will provide you access to the BFUSA portal to complete and submit your Facility Data Sheet and Self-Appraisal Tool online. Please do not submit either of these tools in paper form.
