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.
