This consensus statement presents a preliminary summary from a meeting of researchers, program implementers, infant feeding experts, representatives of the Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT), UN agencies, the WHO Regional Office for Africa and six WHO headquarters departments who gathered in Geneva in order to review the substantial body of new evidence and experience regarding HIV and infant feeding. The aim of the meeting was to establish whether it is possible to clarify and refine the existing UN guidelines, which were based on the recommendations from the previous meeting held in October 2000.
