dc.description.abstractExcellent adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) is necessary if HIV-infected children are to experience the dramatically improved outcomes that this treatment affords. However, there is very limited data on adherence to antiretroviral therapy in Africa, with few studies that examine the predictive value of low technology measures of adherence in terms of viral and immune outcomes. In addition there are no long terms studies of adherence in young children in Africa.en_ZA
