Abstract

A Clinical Guide to Pediatric HIV: Bridging the Gaps Between Research and Practice examines the impact of HIV on children, adolescents, and their families. Written by experts in the field, this book covers issues of concern to clinicians and researchers working in the area of pediatric HIV. Beginning with an overview of

pediatric HIV epidemiology and the medical, developmental, and psychosocial concerns facing children and adolescents with HIV, this book offers a description of the unique challenges associated with HIV within families and schools. In addition, this book provides the latest research on topics of relevance to clinicians and researchers working in this area to include but not limited to disclosure, antiretroviral adherence, and ethical issues surrounding pediatric HIV. It concludes with a discussion of cross-cultural issues, HIV prevention, and HIV-related stigma.

This book is an invaluable resource for researchers, academics, and clinicians working with children with HIV and their families as well as graduate students in the fields of psychology, social work, sociology, mental health, and public health. Although there are many resources focusing on HIV, this book’s exclusive focus on pediatric HIV makes it an essential compendium for pediatric clinicians and researchers.
