ABSTRACT



The field of mother to child transmission of human-immunodeficiency

virus is rapidly evolving. In the United States, prevention focuses on

implementation of universal human-immunodeficiency virus testing to

assure compliance with recommended treatment regimens and infant-feeding

strategies. In most cases, this is the avoidance of all breastfeeding.

In developing countries, avoidance of breastfeeding places infants at

higher risk of morbidity and mortality. Current World Health

Organization recommendations require individualized counseling to

determine the best feeding method for each woman.
