Paediatric HIV/antiretroviral therapy and care guideline review

10 - 11 April 2008, Geneva, Switzerland

In April 2008 the WHO technical reference group for paediatric HIV/antiretroviral therapy and care met to consider the implications of recent research findings for existing WHO guidelines for treatment and care of infants infected with HIV. As a result of this consultation and based on thorough review of data, the group revised recommendations for diagnostic testing, initiation of treatment, and treatment regimens for HIV-exposed and HIV infected infants.
