These 2014 PENTA guidelines provide practical recommendations on the management of HIV-1 infection in children in Europe and are an update to those published in 2009. Aims of treatment have progressed significantly over the last decade, moving far beyond limitation of short-term morbidity and mortality to optimising health status for adult life and minimising impact of chronic HIV infection on immune system development and health in general. At the same time there is a greater need for increased awareness and minimisation of long term drug toxicity.
