These guidelines are intended to provide paediatric HIV antiretroviral treatment (ART) recommendations for both the public and private sectors.

ART in children follows the same principles as in adults, and treaters should not be daunted by some of the differences, which include more frequent dose adjustments, liquid formulations occasionally being poorly palatable, and the dependence of children on adult caregivers for receiving medication. These should not be viewed as obstacles, and everything should be done to assist the process of treating children.
Since the last publication of these guidelines there have been pivotal paediatric studies that have necessitated the updating of paediatric guidelines in South Africa.
