Child and Adolescent HIV Research

Child and Adolescent HIV

TREAT Asia’s pediatric network includes 21 sites, most of which contribute to the TREAT Asia Pediatric HIV Observational Database (TApHOD). TApHOD is a regional pediatric HIV study set up by TREAT Asia in 2006 that includes data from more than 7,500 children and adolescents in Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. Studies conducted through the network focus on investigating HIV clinical and treatment outcomes among children, adolescents, and young adults living with HIV. This includes the long-term consequences of HIV-associated co-morbidities, such as mental health disorders.
