Q and A


When can I stop giving baby nevirapine?

I am HIV positive and my baby is negative and i’m breastfeeding. When will I stop giving her nevirapine?


Hi, how are you doing?

Congratulations on having a baby.

In most countries baby is given nevirapine for 4-6 weeks. Some will advise up until 12 weeks. After this, even if you are still breastfeeding, there is no benefit to continue using treatment.

Duration also depends on your own viral load and if/when you started treatment.
