Since the first
case of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection was identified, the
number of children infected with HIV has risen dramatically in developing
countries, the result of an increased number of HIV-infected women of
childbearing age in these areas. HIV is a retrovirus and can be transmitted
vertically, sexually, or via contaminated blood products or IV drug abuse.
The number of
kids who get infected with HIV each year is going down. At the end of 2015, 2.6
million children throughout the world ages 15 and younger were living with the
virus, but only about one-third of them were getting treatment.
pretty much the same treatment as adults: a combination of medications called
ART (antiretroviral therapy). But it isn't that simple, because some HIV drugs
don't come in a liquid form that babies and small children can swallow. And
some drugs cause serious side effects for kids.
