Breastfeeding in the Context of HIV

Breastfeeding in the Context of HIV

14 Oct 20 | Dr. Rahmat Bibi Bagus

Scholarship Opportunities for Active Leaders (does not include registration for CERPs credit)

Join us for this fascinating presentation by Dr. Rhamat Bagus, a physician and LLL Leader from Capetown, South Africa. In many high-income countries, it has been recommended that mothers that test HIV positive formula feed exclusively. However, in South Africa, with the highest levels of HIV positive mothers in the world, mothers who are taking anti-retroviral medications and are virally suppressed are encouraged to exclusively breastfeed for 24 months or longer. After years of study and many trials, the World Health Organization (WHO) has looked at the science, translated the evidence and has changed their recommendations. Dr. Bagus shares that many countries are now following these updated WHO recommendations. She explains the statistics and the reasons why the thinking regarding breastfeeding has changed over the last 20 years in Africa and many other countries in a very clear and interesting manner. This information will be helpful to Leaders and health care professionals alike. As a Leader with LLL, Dr. Bagus also provides a clear description of the Leader’s responsibilities when dealing with medical questions and information. Even those who are already well-informed about HIV and breastfeeding will enjoy the updated and very current information.
