Pediatric Sexual Health Problem
In countries where HIV/AIDS treatment is widely available, positive parenting is on the rise. The risk of mother-to-child transmission is as low as 2% in these areas, and treatment has prolonged life expectancy for many potential parents with HIV. Current treatment options for HIV-positive children are insufficient, as little investment has been made to ensure the safety and efficacy of antiretrovirals in treating children, or to develop child-appropriate formulations. An improved first-line therapy for children under 3 years of age would ideally be safe, easy to administer, well-tolerated and palatable, heat-stable, readily dispersible, and dosed once daily or less. It must also carry minimal risk for developing resistance, be compatible with drugs against tuberculosis, and affordable.
