The Association for Breastfeeding Advocacy (Singapore) – ABAS
 is an alliance of healthcare institutions, healthcare professionals’ associations, mother-support groups and individual healthcare professionals in private practice who see breast feeding of infants as an important fundamental building block for the health of the nation.

ABAS became a registered society in November 2003, but the association had begun its work back in January 2001, under the name Singapore Breastfeeding Promotion Committee.
