BCG Vaccination in South African Hiv-Exposed Infants--Risks and Benefits (Issues in Public Health) (Report)

Until 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination should be contraindicated in infants with symptomatic HIV disease in countries with a high burden of tuberculosis.

The WHO revised its recommendations regarding BCG vaccination in HIV-infected infants in 2007, making HIV infection a full contraindication to BCG vaccination.

(2) The efficacy against childhood pulmonary disease is variable; (3) there is no evidence that BCG induces a protective effect against tuberculosis in HIV-infected infants and children.
