Breast Milk Supply and Demand in South Africa (image) Georgia Institute of Technology Share Print E-Mail Caption The supply of breast milk (left) is twice as large as the demand (right) in South Africa. Breast milk demand (indicated by a red dot for a neonatal unit in the right hand image) is spread out in the northeast provinces and on the east coast where the population is more rural and poor. Using this data, Georgia Tech systems engineers created models to strategically determine how a nongovernmental organization in South Africa should expand its breast milk donation and distribution network to the whole country.
