Treating children with AIDS

We are reviewing the treatment results among patients receiving antiretroviral therapy at Arba Minch Hospital.

From Ethiopia there are few results published on treatment outcome in children with HIV infection. We have therefore reviewed the survival of children 14 years or younger.

The preliminary results (se Figure) show the five-year survival rate is about 90 %.

Most of the deaths occur during the first twelve months, and usually occurs among patients with advanced disease when we started treatment.
