In order to assist in putting general guidance on HIV and infant feeding into practice in countries, in 2003 WHO and UN partners (with valuable inputs from NGOs, researchers, and government officials) revised HIV and Infant Feeding: A Guide for Health-care Managers and Supervisors. This publication is aimed at helping mid-level managers understand issues and organize services to support all women, and especially HIV-infected women, on infant feeding. The document contains a list of key steps, background information, key resources and references, and extensive annexes.
