About Us

The Human Milk Banking Association of South Africa (HMBASA) is an independent non-profit organization that provides guidance for human milk banking centres throughout South Africa. HMBASA seeks to reduce sickness and death and promote the well-being of South African infants by reducing mortality and morbidity in critically ill or premature infants, by providing human milk when direct breastfeeding is not possible and by providing human milk to babies orphaned by HIV/AIDS.
