In this event, the facilitators conducted socialization and training methods for health cadres on how to communicate assertively with breastfeeding mothers by emphasizing acceptance, empathy, support and openness. The training was carried out for one week, included four villages within the Community Health Center working area, namely Grendeng, Bancarkembar, Sumampir and Pabuwaran. This community service has a good impact to the health cadres and The Community Health Center.  The 90% target of exclusive breastfeeding will be reviewed by the end of 2021.  However, the health cadres and The Community Health Center have more self-confidence to convince breastfeeding mothers to look after their children better by giving them the exclusive breastfeeding.  In turn, the target will be achieved.
