HIV and Infant Feeding in Emergencies: Operational Guidance

Guidelines - Released in 2018

This operational guidance is based on a consultation convened by the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children's Fund and the Emergency Nutrition Network in Geneva in September 2016, which brought together a cross-section of senior-level participants from United Nations agencies, government, nongovernmental organizations, academia, and other agencies working in nutrition and HIV in emergencies. This document sets out basic principles related to HIV and infant feeding in emergency settings, and the actions that government and other stakeholders can take to prepare for emergencies.
