Abstract

"These stand-alone treatment guidelines serve as a framework for selecting the most potent and feasible first-line and second-line ARV regimens as components of expanded national responses for the care of HIV-infected infants and children. Recommendations are provided on:
- diagnosing HIV infection in infants and children;
- when to start ART, including situations where severe HIV disease in children less than 18 months of age has been presumptively diagnosed;
- clinical and laboratory monitoring of ART;
- substitution of ARVs for toxicities."
