Co-trimoxazole Use Reduces Childhood AIDS –Related Death

Trial in Zambia led by Dianne Gibb reported that administrating the antibiotic// Co-trimoxazole to HIV-infected children reduced fatalities by more than 40% over a 19 month period. Co-trimoxazole usage reduced the secondary complications and infections in children with AIDS, which can be just as fatal as HIV. This affordable treatment was successful in spite of wide spread resistance to Co-trimoxazole in Zambia, and shows that treating respiratory infections in HIV-infected children save lives and reduces the burden of admissions in local hospitals. Children suffered no ill-effects from prolonged antibiotic therapy. Guided by this research, the WHO, UNAIDS and UNICEF have agreed to modify the current recommendations for Co-trimoxazole prophylaxis in children.
