Thumbnail image of Standards of Care for HIV-Exposed and Infected Infants and Children
This poster outlines standards of care needed by infants and children who were exposed to HIV and those infected with HIV. It explains that if such children are not tested and treated early, HIV infection causes rapidly progressive disease and high mortality in early childhood. It emphasizes the need to test these children for HIV; regular monitoring; treatment if infected; immunizations and other means of preventing illness; screening for and, if necessary, treatment for TB. In addition, the poster recommends life-long care and psychological, social, and treatment adherence support for infants and children infected with HIV.
