When will they ever learn? Handing out formula creates mixed feeders... and highest feeding risk for HIV+ moms

Dear friends:
When will they ever learn? Handing out formula for HIV+ moms in low wealth settings is not only risky, but potentially deadly.
Botswana's government meant well when they started handing out formula, but how many crises will be necessary until they stop?
Stock outages, massive diarrheal disease, and more stock outages, and yet it continues.
Please, my friends, help spread that word that such programs breed disaster.
