This comparative study examines the UK and South Africa's maternity services. The study focuses on HIV in pregnancy, and attitudes to, and rates of, breastfeeding in the two countries. Similarities exist between the countries demographics, i.e. both have a diverse population. However, the study found that there is wide variation in both the attitudes to, and rates of, breastfeeding, and HIV in pregnancy between the countries. Yet despite being financially challenged, both countries offer support to HIV positive and breastfeeding women.
