Researchers argue that among children born to mothers with HIV, other factors such as the virus and substance use prompt such outcomes.
A recent study analyzed half a million visits to children hospitals by those 14 to 18 years old.
A new study found such young people typically hit standard adult milestones but often experience serious life challenges.
This is according to a survey conducted in South Africa.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation continues its mission to end AIDS in children.
However, the majority of children with HIV in the 20 highest burden nations still aren’t on antiretrovirals.
This is according to a survey of parents and adolescents at a state fair in Minnesota.
Continuously providing such infants with antiretrovirals as early as possible limits the size of the reservoir.

HIV-positive children are more likely than those without the virus to die from severe malaria.
