Staged Introduction of Antiretroviral Therapy Into a Family with Multiple HIV-Infected Members

Abstract

Children and families bear a significant burden of human immunodeficiency virus disease globally, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Care of severely affected families can be adversely impacted by high medication burdens and overwhelmed caregivers, who themselves may be human immunodeficiency virus infected.
