The International AIDS Conference brings together science, leadership, and community to advance treatment and prevention of HIV. DNDi co-hosted a satellite session on paediatric HIV.
Scale up HIV treatment for children:
The right tools, right now!
Date: 21 July 2016
The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi), the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), UNITAID, and the National Empowerment Network of People living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya (NEPHAK) will be sharing practical and programmatic experience – including both successes and challenges – developing and introducing new paediatric ARV formulations.
This Satellite Session will explore how to ensure that when optimal formulations are developed, they are rapidly adopted and introduced so that large-scale treatment of infants and young children with HIV can be implemented and sustained. The Satellite will bring in perspectives from WHO and affected communities as well as from country implementers, product developers, donor agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
