Overview of Nevirapine Research Projects

What is Nevirapine?

Nevirapine is an inexpensive, easy-to-use drug that can help reduce the chances that HIV is passed from mother-to-infant during labor and delivery and breastfeeding. Nevirapine research projects have been running in Chitungwiza for almost 2 years.

Overall Objective and Goal

The goal of these projects is to identify a safe and effective regimen of Nevirapine that can be given to HIV-exposed infants (those with HIV+ mothers) so that infants can simultaneously breastfeed and also be protected against HIV virus in the mother's breastmilk.
