Treatment Guidelines

Treatment Guidelines

In 2009, the PENTA-ID Network PENTA Guidelines Writing Group developed treatment guidelines for children with HIV-1 infection in Europe based on the most up to date scientific literature. These guidelines were updated in 2015 to reflect a shift in focus from short term survival to optimizing health status via therapy for a full and productive adult life. The PENTA 2015 guidelines were further updated in 2016, with advice to start antiretroviral therapy for all children living with HIV (link).

The PENTA 2015 guidelines (link) are due for further update, focussing on first and second line treatment options, in 2017.
