Infant Feeding Practices and Attitudes among Women with HIV Infection in Northern Thailand. Talawatg S, Dore GJ, Coeur SL, et al (2002)

Infant Feeding Practices and Attitudes among Women with HIV Infection in Northern Thailand. Talawatg S, Dore GJ, Coeur SL, et al (2002) Breastfeeding transmission is accountable for about one­third of mother­to­child trans­ mission of HIV in developing countries (Mofenson 1997; Nicoll et al., 2000). In developed countries, women with HIV infection are recommended not to breastfeed their children; however, in developing countries, the risk of postnatal HIV transmission has to be balanced against the risk of morbidity and mortality associated with formula feeding (Nicoll et al., 2000; WHO, 2000).
