Paediatric and Adolescent HIV scale up plan

It is estimated that three out of four children living with HIV are not receiving the necessary treatment and while South Africa’s HIV treatment programme is the largest in the world the focus has been on adults and there are many children and adolescents living with HIV that have not been reached. Supported by ELMA Philanthropies and PACF, HIVSA and other partners are supporting the case finding of HIV infected children at a community level and ensuring linkages to HIV services.
