Weight-band dosing tables: simplifying paediatric art

J Nuttall

Abstract


One of the obstacles to scaling up paediatric antiretroviral therapy (ART) coverage in resource-limited settings is the relative complexity of paediatric dosing. There is a need to simplify ART in order to facilitate treatment initiation and ongoing management of infants and children by health care providers, as well as to support adherence in the home. This article reviews the development of weight-band dosing tables as a strategy for simplifying the delivery of paediatric ART.
