The 3-day course in Guatemala has come to a close. Around 100 frontline healthcare professionals caring for HIV infected children from Guatemala, San Salvador, Ecuador, Panama, Mexico, Nicaragua and Costa Rica met in Antigua, 45 kilometres from Guatemala City, in order to acquire new knowledge and share their experience and know-how in the treatment and care of Pediatric HIV. The course agenda foresaw: epidemiology and elimination of perinatal transmission, HIV evolution and ART treatment in children and adolescents, co-infection and HIV in adolescents. Through case studies and group discussion, participants had a unique opportunity to grow professionally and advance knowledge in their countries.
We would like to thank all the faculty for their involvement and their passion in promoting scientific knowledge in the pediatric HIV field. We also wish to extend our warmest thanks to all participants, and to beautiful Guatemala for welcoming us!
