HIV

PENTA began as a network focused on the treatment of paediatric HIV, and as such has a long history of activities in this area. In addition to observational studies and more than 15 clinical trials among HIV positive children and pregnant women, PENTA has regularly published guidelines for the treatment of paediatric HIV and conducted training programs for healthcare professionals who care for women and children living with HIV.

While contributing to the search for a vaccine or cure, these activities are primarily focused on improving every day of life for children and women infected with HIV, and preventing the spread of the virus from mother to child.
