dc.description.abstractOnly 3% of children visiting clinics are tested for HIV, despite Ministry of Health recommendations to test and treat ALL children. If unidentified and left untreated, 75% of HIV positive children die by the age of 5 years. Reinforcement of routine HIV testing and treatment of children will increase testing up to 90 - 95%, and importantly reduce mortality by 52%. Adding Integrated Primary School Screening will reach 5-10 year olds who were not previously tested.en
