Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about treatment for children and adolescents with HIV using antiretroviral therapy (ART), a combination of HIV medicines used to treat HIV infection. It explains that the child's weight and stage of development are used to decide HIV treatment, how medicine is given, and dosage size. The document discusses the importance of medication adherence with children who have HIV, and identifies factors that can affect whether or not they take their HIV medicines every day, as prescribed.
