Delivery of antiretroviral treatment (ART) to children living with HIV is associated with a complex set of clinical, operational and procurement challenges, particularly in resource limited settings where over 90% of these children receive care. Currently, children account for less than 5% of all people on ART, and as the global community gets closer to the goal of elimination of mother-to-child transmission, the number of paediatric patients is expected to further decrease. This makes market coordination increasingly important to ensure pediatric products remain available and accessible in resource-limited settings.
