AVRs for Children with HIV/AIDS in Africa and Asia

The partnership aims to expand access to health care for mothers and children affected by HIV/AIDS in developing countries.

Pediatric Formulations for ARVs

In 2006, an estimated 530,000 children under age 15 worldwide were newly infected with HIV. An estimated 2.3 million children under age 15 are living with HIV, and 2 million of those children live in sub-Saharan Africa. A renewed commitment to effective antiretroviral treatment (ART) of HIV infection in children is essential; without treatment, the majority of infected children die before they are three years of age.

This partnership researches and develops new medicines and/or new formulations of existing medicines to treat children with HIV/AIDS, especially in developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. In some cases, partners have signed licensing, patent and/or technology transfer agreements with generic drug manufacturers in South Africa, India and Brazil to make existing HIV/AIDS medicines available in developing countries at lower costs.
