Book description

This portable and practical handbook, first published in 2006, provides a concise guide to the essentials of pediatric HIV care in a form suitable for doctors in the busy hospital setting. During recent years, many agents for the treatment and prophylaxis of HIV infection and the opportunistic infections that accompany HIV infection have been developed, and many new ways of monitoring HIV infection in children have been produced. These therapies and approaches to management are complicated, but the long-term health of HIV-infected children depends on their correct application. This handbook presents the core information and guidelines necessary for effective management of infected children. Two other important themes are ways to minimise mother-to-infant transmission, and the challenges of looking after these children in resource-poor countries.


'… 40% of the chapters are authored or coauthored by clinicians and researchers at the US National Institutes of Health. This gives the book a different perspective than most pediatric clinical references … The authors of [this book] have written a well-constructed clinical reference that provides detailed scientific and epidemiologic data as well as practical guidelines for managing children with HIV.'

'Handbook of Pediatric HIV Care by Steven L. Zeichner and Jennifer S. Read, both from National Institutes of Health, has accomplished the outstanding task of updating recent advances in management of pediatric HIV infection and integrating new information with previous essential knowledge.'
