This handbook seeks to provide a simple, accessible, and practical handbook for health professionals involved in preventing infection and caring for children infected and affected by HIV The primary targets are medical students and their lecturers, nurses, clinicians, community health workers, and other service providers in resource poor settings where there is a significant HIV/AIDS burden.

Research on HIV/AIDS is global and ongoing, and new information becomes available continuously, particularly in the areas of PMTCT and ART; thus, this handbook will be a living document, updated as we learn from our experiences. There are many gaps in our knowledge not only because there is little experience, but also, and perhaps more importantly, because many solid, but small-scale, programmes caring for children are poorly documented.
