The Well Project recently launched our new, three-year project, BEEEBAH (Building Equity, Ethics, and Education on Breastfeeding and HIV)! For our second session of Leadership Exchange LIVE: BEEEBAH Edition, The Well Project’s Ciarra “Ci Ci” Covin is joined by Marielle Gross, MD, MBE, an OB/GYN and bioethicist at the University of Pittsburgh and Johns Hopkins.

Ci Ci and Marielle have shared a stage to talk about breast/chestfeeding and HIV before; the two reconnect to discuss race, maternal health, and ethics around infant feeding and HIV - including supporting parents living with HIV to engage in shared, informed infant feeding decision-making.

We are excited for the second in this series of exchanges with various thoughtleaders on breast/chestfeeding and HIV – essential to our efforts to raise awareness, inspire action, and ensure that women living with HIV can experience their fundamental right to make informed, uncoerced infant-feeding decisions.

The Well Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to change the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic through a unique and comprehensive focus on women and girls. Visit their website,, to access fact sheets (English and Spanish), blogs, and advocacy tools, and to join a global community of women living with HIV.
