This issue of the Journal continues discussions started in the December 2011 issue. Professor Kuhn responds to the concerns raised by Salojee about the national policy promoting breastfeeding in HIV-exposed infants; she discusses the scientific rationale for the policy revisions, and presents a population perspective rooted in overall child morbidity and mortality. For better or worse, infant feeding is likely to remain an important topic for years to come. Both viewpoints need careful consideration, and subsequent discussions in these pages hopefully can be informed by experiences from implementing the new infant feeding policies in different settings around the country.
