"Although there has been significant success in reducing the number of new HIV infections among children, barriers that impact their access to life-saving treatment persist. The availability of HIV testing, continued mother-to-child transmission and slow initiation of treatment combined with limited paediatric formulations of ARVs, are just some of the key challenges that negatively impact children living with HIV. The latest figures from UNAIDS show that only half of children with HIV have access to treatment, compared with 68% of adults."
Of course, no one organisation has the capability to single-handedly put solution into practice. It’s only through partnerships that we can genuinely make progress to close the gap between treatment options for adults and treatment options for children.
