Prioritizing HIV Treatment Among Children Necessary To End Epidemic

The Lancet’s “Global Health Blog”: Putting children at the center of the end of AIDS
Charles Lyons, president and CEO of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, discusses the importance of prioritizing HIV treatment among children in order to reach the goal of ending HIV/AIDS among children, as well as the goal of ending the epidemic more broadly. He writes, “Ending AIDS in children will require an even bigger global commitment in the years to come than ever before. Without investment now, the challenges will only grow more difficult and the obstacles harder to surmount. We must have the ambition to rise to meet this challenge, until no child has AIDS” (10/14).
