First Place

HIV transmission through breastfeeding
Lena Serghides, University Health Network

This video was produced in Canada and is most applicable to people living with HIV in Canada and other high resource settings. Additional considerations may apply to those living in lower resource settings that could influence infant feeding choices. This is by no means a comprehensive summary of risk or infant feeding choices for people living with HIV. Always consult with your doctor, social worker, and/or HIV organization.
