Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Breast feeding is an important mode of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Interventions to decrease the number of infants becoming infected are particularly required for women in less developed countries where breast feeding is essential for infant survival. This review discusses the physiology and immunology of breast feeding and how maternal health interventions in the postpartum period may help decrease mother-to-child HIV transmission.
