This edition sees the publication of the fourth SA HIV Clinicians Society paediatric antiretroviral therapy (ART) guidelines. Previously it has not been possible to have one guideline for the whole country because of wide discordance between the government and private sectors. This year, for the first time, our guideline is applicable to both the private and public sectors. Inevitably some differences remain and are addressed in the document. They include choice of first-line regimen and genotyping recommendations. The national Department of Health (NDoH) is still updating its guidelines, hopefully for publication in early 2010. We hope you will find the Society's guidelines pragmatic and helpful. We have the potential to save and improve many young lives.
