This chapter assesses the risk of HIV transmission in several infant feeding strategies. It presents a model of the trade-off between preventing maternal-infant HIV transmission and increasing non-HIV sources of mortality. The model evaluates month-by-month risks of fatal adverse events for infant feeding strategies such as breastfeeding, never breastfeeding, or breastfeeding for some specified period and then switching to formula feeding. The model is applied to eight geographic settings and for varied assumptions about perinatal antiretroviral therapy.

Keywords:   HIV transmission, infant feeding, maternal-infant HIV transmission, mortality, breastfeeding, formula feeding, perinatal antiretroviral therapy
