Invite to Join WABA HIV and Infant Feeding Group

An open invite is extended by Ted Greiner to join The World Alliance for Breast-feeding Action (WABA) HIV and Infant Feeding Yahoo Group.

The group is not a chat group, but a list maintained by Ted Greiner, in his capacity as coordinator for the WABA Research Task Force. Members have access to a private website with numerous links to key UN and other documents on infant feeding and HIV, as well as unpublished and recently published full-text journal articles.

Anyone who wishes to join should email Ted Greiner email: tedgreiner@yahoo.com
