Global Push to Treat H.I.V. Leaves Children Behind
Sub-Saharan Africa has made steady progress in delivering lifesaving medication to adults, but young patients are harder to reach and 100,000 are dying of AIDS each year. In the past two decades, efforts have been made to diagnose, treat, and prevent the transmission of H.I.V in sub-Saharan Africa. Despite its success in H.I.V. treatment in adults in the region, the infections in children go widely undetected and untreated due to the fewer diagnostic and treatment tools. Additionally, the recent pandemic has halted the mission to fight against AIDS.
