Abstract
According to the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) estimates, approximately 50,000 children below 15 years are infected by HIV every year. With the AIDS epidemic slowly spreading its tentacles, the figures are only expected to grow in the future. Management of these patients includes confirmation of their HIV-positive status, following which they undergo comprehensive history-taking, clinical examination, staging of HIV is according to WHO guidelines and CD4 count (HIV-positive children of age < 15 years form a priority group for CD4 testing).

Key words: HAART; Adverse Drug Reactions; Toxicity; NACO; Pediatric; Children
