Summary

These revised, stand-alone comprehensive guidelines, based on a public health approach, have been developed in order to support and facilitate the management and scale-up of antiretroviral treatment (ART) in infants and children. The guidelines give recommendations on when ART should begin, which ARV regimens should be introduced, the reasons for changing ART, and the regimens that should be continued if treatment has to be changed.
