WHO Disease Staging System For HIV Infection And Disease In Children

The current staging system for HIV infection in children was developed in 2005 and builds upon the staging system in place since 1987. A child is defined as someone under the age of 15. This staging system also requires the presence of HIV infection: HIV antibody for children aged 18 months or more; virological or p24 antigen positive test if aged under 18 months.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The intellect is vagabond, and our system of education fosters restlessness. Our minds travel when our bodies are forced to stay at home. We imitate; and what is imitation but the travelling of the mind?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.
    Jacob Bronowski (1908–1974)

    It is our continuing love for our children that makes us want them to become all they can be, and their continuing love for us that helps them accept healthy discipline—from us and eventually from themselves.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)
