The significance of neonatal CMV infections for child health is potentially far-reaching. Obtaining specific funding for CMV studies in the African context may be challenging due to competing priorities for major killer infections. With a growing awareness of the importance of congenital CMV infection in high CMV seroprevalence populations, those conducting longitudinal paediatric studies in high HIV burden settings where growth and psychomotor development are outcomes should consider testing for congenital and/or early infant CMV infection.
