Adegbehingbe SM et al. – The findings of this study confirm that this Acceptable, Feasible, Affordable, Sustainable and Safe (AFASS) counselling tool may be appropriate and useful for Sub–Saharan Africa (SSA). Ideally the revised tool should be tested by providers of infant feeding advice with the aim of adoption into routine PMTCT programmes in SSA, but within the context of the 2010 WHO guidelines which advocate a public health rather than an individualised approach, it may inform the WHO process of improving counselling tools for health care workers involved in PMTCT programmes.
