Abstract

In order to provide comprehensive care to infants, children, and adolescents with HIV infection/AIDS, a systematic approach to clinical management had to be developed. This approach involves "case management" by experienced health professionals, including initial evaluation and needs assessment, planning of services, brokerage of services, continuity of intervention until an outcome is reached. The care is delivered in hospitals, clinics, homes, residential facilities, respite care centers, and hospices. The care team needs to be multidisciplinary and well integrated.
