Can children be on ART?

Answer

Yes, HIV positive children can be on ART once their clinical stage is determined by their physician. ART have a markedly positive effect on children, by improving their development and growth. The ARV preparation and dosage for children are different than those of adults, thus children should not be given ARVs prescribed for adults.
