On the occasion of the World AIDS Day in December 2011, WABA is pleased to issue the following *Statement "Getting to Zero: Zero New HIV Infections, Zero Discrimination, Zero AIDS-Related Deaths -- **Making GETTING TO ZERO a Reality for HIV-Infected Mothers and Their Children". *[See: http://waba.org.my/pdf/wad2011-statement.pdf ]
The Statement brings critical updated information on this complex issue of HIV and infant feeding policy guidelines and decision making; and the important role of exclusive breastfeeding in HIV intervention and child survival!
We also urge you to take note of a recently update paper by WABA with references on *"What Women need to know on HIV and Infant Feeding"*. [See: http://waba.org.my/pdf/wad2011-wwntk.pdf ] *
T*his short document aims to guide all women in understanding this complex issue better, and help them make informed decisions on needed treatment and infant feeding for both maternal health and prevention HIV transmission to infants. All health and women's health activists will find this document most useful!
*Thank you for taking the time to update yourself on such an important challenge facing us globally!*
