Should HIV-positive Mothers Breast-feed?

In an ideal world, the answer is no, as breast milk transmission of HIV contributes substantially to infant infection.

However, in the same developing countries where the majority of HIV mother-to-child transmission takes place, //breast milk is often considered the only safe and nutritious food for infants. This makes for difficult recommendations, and additional research is needed.

A new study conducted by Renaud Becquet and colleagues in Abidjan, C?te d'Ivoire, and reported in PLoS Medicine shows that if HIV-positive mothers are well supported, either of the two feeding options currently recommended (formula-only feed, or short-term breastfeeding) are likely to be equivalent in terms of the baby's chances for survival and health.
