– Children start ART very early and for life – Can we reduce number of drugs (sparing NRTIs)?
– Drugs with high genetic barrier to resistance are available for children

Overall Aim: To evaluate antiviral efficacy and safety of once daily INSTI+DRV/r compared to current SOC therapy in HIV-1 infected, virologically suppressed paediatric participants

Hypothesis: Children with chronic HIV infection on ART with suppressed viral load will maintain similar levels of suppression with once daily INSTI + darunavir/r compared to continued standard of care triple ART
