FREE FORMULA MILK PROVISION FOR BABIES BORN TO WOMEN WHO ARE LIVING WITH HIV AND RESIDENT IN THE CITY OF SALFORD

 

Are you a woman living with HIV and a resident of Salford?

 

Do you have a child who is under 12 months old?

 

Are you pregnant?

 

Do you know that breastfeeding is an identified route of vertical transmission of HIV, and current UK clinical guidance recommends that an infant born to a mother living with HIV is fed exclusively with formula milk?

 

George House Trust administers a Formula Milk Scheme funded by Salford City Council and open to residents of Salford borough.

 

The scheme provides free formula milk for the first 12 months of the baby’s life, and a starter steriliser kit to women living with HIV who give birth and is open to all women regardless of income or immigration status.

 

Referrals to the scheme

Pregnant women living with HIV or mothers living with HIV with infants under 12 months old who are resident in Salford can be referred to George House Trust via the ‘make a referral’ section of our website.

 

Referrals can be made by any health professional or people may self-refer.
