Overview

As access to paediatric antiretroviral (ARV) treatment expands worldwide, there is an increasing need to improve and simplify formulations for children. In moving towards the joint UNAIDS/WHO Treatment 2.0 initiative, revised dosing guidance for new and current paediatric formulations will be critical to ensuring children have access to better, safer and simpler treatment.
