English: Web Page


The Paediatric Internet-based Discussion Group (PDG) assists health care professionals in resolving HIV-related clinical problems through the use of case studies. Summaries of difficult and interesting cases are emailed to group members who email their responses to all participants. This format allows users to consult with one another, share their experiences, and utilize their collective expertise in the treatment of HIV and HIV- related illnesses in an online forum. These cases were presented to a group of South African pediatricians. Case studies include opinions of the participants and recommendations from experts in the field.
