Undiagnosed HIV Infections in Children and Approaches to Pediatric Case Finding
In 2020, there were an estimated two million children under the age of 15 years living with HIV worldwide, only half of whom were on antiretroviral therapy. Until recently, there has been only limited data on the number of children living with HIV who are undiagnosed. New estimates of undiagnosed children living with HIV in seven different countries in sub-Saharan Africa, based on data from the Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (PHIA) surveys, are illuminating gaps in diagnosis and treatment.
With the latest webinar in its monthly Grand Rounds series, ICAP explores new data on undiagnosed HIV infections among children and strategic approaches to HIV testing and case finding in children.
This webinar is a co-presentation with the PHIA project.
