ViiV Healthcare Expands Commitment to Addressing Gaps in Paediatric HIV Research, Care and Treatment
Date:7/18/2012

LONDON, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViiV Healthcare today announced a broad range of groundbreaking initiatives as part of its ongoing commitment to address the gaps in care and treatment of paediatric HIV. These efforts are part of the company's Paediatric Innovation Seed Fund. They include a public-private partnership with CHAI and Mylan Laboratories Limited, a subsidiary of US-based Mylan Inc., to submit a registration file for a new dispersible formulation of a fixed dose combination for paediatric patients in resource-limited settings. ViiV Healthcare is also providing grants of nearly 3 million pounds to five organisations to improve paediatric HIV research, care and treatment access in resource-limited settings. Taken together, these new initiatives bring ViiV Healthcare's level of support to approximately 5.3 million pounds of the total 10 million pounds committed since the introduction of the Paediatric Innovation Seed Fund in 2009.There has been significant progress over the past decade in increasing access to high quality treatment for children living with HIV. However, too many HIV-positive children still do not have adequate access to HIV treatment and care.

Improvements in access to treatment and quality of care are urgently needed in this population with a particular focus on resources targeted towards identification, initiation and retention on antiretroviral treatment. Access to appropriate therapeutic options for infants and children which simplify treatment initiation and promote adherence and retention remains a major unmet need in global HIV care. Among several barriers preventing further scale-up of the numbers of children on treatment are
