To the Editor: In their Editorial that accompanied
the study of Dr Mbori-Nagacha and colleagues,1
Drs Guay and Ruff2 expressed skepticism
about the implementation of formula feeding among HIV-1–positive mothers
in resource-poor settings. As a physician in a developing country working
on the prevention of perinatal HIV transmission, I would like to express another
point of view.
