Recommendations on the Diagnosis of HIV Infection in Infants and Children. WHO (2006)

Recommendations on the Diagnosis of HIV Infection in Infants and Children. WHO (2006) The majority of HIV infected children acquire the virus from their HIV infected mothers around the time of delivery or during breastfeeding. The most efficient and cost effective way to tackle paediatric HIV globally is, therefore, to reduce mother-to-child transmission (MTCT). However, every day there are nearly 1500 new infections in children under 15 years of age, more than 90% occurring in the developing world. HIV-infected infants frequently present with clinical symptoms in the first year of life, by one year of age an estimated one-third of infected infants will have died, and about half by 2 years of age. Early recognition of HIV exposure and diagnosis of HIV is crucial and can save lives by enabling early initiation of appropriate care including ART.

A Call to Action Children: The Missing Face of AIDS. UNAIDS and UNICEF (2005)

A Call to Action Children: The Missing Face of AIDS. UNAIDS and UNICEF (2005) The world must take urgent account of the specific impact of AIDS on children, or there will be no chance of meeting Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 6 – to halt and begin to reverse the spread of the disease by 2015. Failure to meet the goal on HIV/AIDS will adversely affect the world’s chances of progress on the other MDGs. The disease continues to frustrate efforts to reduce extreme poverty and hunger, to provide universal primary education, and to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health.

East Asia: Children and HIV/AIDS- A Call to Action. UNICEF (2005)

East Asia: Children and HIV/AIDS- A Call to Action. UNICEF (2005) HIV/AIDS is a communicable disease that not only threatens sex workers, their clients and drug users. It is a disease that has already devastated the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and adolescents in East Asia and menaces millions more. More than any other modern-day pandemic, HIV/AIDS insinuates itself into the lives of children through so many different channels and damages them in so many ways. And its effects are long-lasting. Not only does HIV/AIDS claim the lives of children, it is robbing them of their parents, siblings, relatives, friends, teachers, caregivers and other role models. For many children – all too often girls – HIV/AIDS is denying them of their education, their future livelihoods, and their place in society. HIV/AIDS is also exacerbating economic and social disparities, making those who are infected poorer, and marginalizing those who are affected further.
