English: Web site


The prevention of HIV infection in children and the care and treatment of HIV-infected children are important priorities of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. The purpose of this document is to describe preventive care interventions the Emergency Plan can support for children born to HIV-infected mothers (HIV- exposed children), including children in whom an HIV diagnosis has been confirmed (HIV-infected children). This document does not address antiretroviral treatment for children. [HIV prevention and treatment guidelines change frequently based on clinical research study findings. Please refer to the WHO or U.S. DHHS guidelines for the most current recommendations on ARV treatment and PMTCT.]
