Meeting Report, 11-12 Sept. 2013, Geneva, Switzerland
Interagency Task Team on Prevention and Treatment of HIV Infection in Pregnant Women, Mothers, and their Children, 2014
The antiretroviral treatment (ART) of HIV infection in paediatric populations is associated with a complex set of clinical, operational, and procurement challenges, particularly in resource-limited settings. The reliable delivery of high quality, affordable, paediatric-adapted ARVs is a prerequisite for the timely identification, initiation, and treatment of infected children. Currently, children account for fewer than 7% of all individuals on treatment, and as a result, the global paediatric ARV market is both smaller and more vulnerable to supply disruptions compared to the adult ARV market.
