Children with HIV E-mail

Health About HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, has already been said and written. Everyone knows or should know! - Which means the virus, how it rises etc etc. The focus in the media almost always focus on (young) adults. This seems almost to forget that there are some 1.4 million children with HIV infection.

In the Netherlands there are almost 150. This does not seem much compared with the few thousand adults, but since there is no medicine, there are almost 150 excess. The vast majority of children (more than 80%), the virus from their mother received positive around birth. Without treatment dies most of these children before they have been. This applies mainly for children in 3rd world countries. Most HIV positive children live (as most HIV positive adults) in Africa, under the Sahara.

The Dutch population of HIV children, is a reasonable reflection of the world, also come by far the most from subsahara Africa. Fortunately, we have a very good treatment. The funds provided are virus inhibitors. The children do not develop AIDS, but the virus does not get lost. They need medicine every day at regular intervals swallow. And this seems easier than it is.

For small children, the problem is that many medications and is very dirty. It is therefore quite common for the kids there is no such meaning in it. It is therefore important that parents give the medication properly. Unfortunately that would occasionally still a problem, because parents are too little to feel. Sometimes because they simply do not understand, sometimes because they can not care. The virus may be resistant to the drugs and then we have a reasonable end of the house. Fortunately, there are several resources, but again keep it up.

The good results achieved with the medication, there are now several years for the first time children with HIV in puberty. That also brings problems. First, the legal obligation to children 12 years and older to tell what they have. Since most 12 year olds are not really retarded, so it's all gloomy to say the least votes, which may adversely affect medication again.
Furthermore, adolescent teenagers anyway sometimes. Moreover, it is sometimes awkward sometimes specifically the timing of the medication to be taken. Because if you nice with friends and suddenly you have your pill (large pills and much too!) Swallowing, then the reasonable probability exists that is where they ask for it. And you tell, in general, not with pride that you are HIV positive ... This all leads so that the adherence among adolescents is not as good as it should. And that can lead to resistance and / or AIDS.

In addition to the main drug problems that I have discussed, there are also other things that make things harder for the kids. And I mean, for example, the social impact it has, but also the fact that they have to be pricked for blood would sometimes very annoying (especially when the entire small). It is only hoped that soon a drug, and makes us at least 1 major problem less.
