Excerpt
Introduction In 2000, WHO and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) issued a provisional recommendation: all African infants born to mothers infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) should receive empirical cotrimoxazole (trimethoprim–sulfamethoxazole) prophylaxis against Pneumocystis carinii (now called Pneumocystis jiroveci a) pneumonia (PCP) from six weeks of age (1). This proposal was made for the following reasons: the high number of deaths from PCP in infants with HIV infection; cotrimoxazole’s efficacy for preventing PCP in adults; and the difficulty in determining HIV infection in exposed infants in poor countries. Nevertheless, cotrimoxazole prophylaxis Policy and Practice based solely on HIV exposure, without confirmation of HIV infection status within the first month of life, is not the way this drug is usually used in developed countries and may have unforeseen consequences.
