A new year, so we need to set goals. Having had a major re-think last year, we decided that we will continue to give support to our children

HIV/AIDS
In our latest intake of children, we have accepted a little girl who was born HIV positive. Her mother, who is still living is also HIV positive and is being treated with anti-retro-viral drugs.

But the little girl isn't. She is being treated with a special diet.

Now, we know very little about HIV/AIDS, other than it has killed the parents of most of our Twiga children.

Two years ago, we lost a 3-year-old girl to AIDS and we don't want to lose another.

Presently, this little girl appears to be perfectly healthy, although it is difficult to judge as she is also very shy.

Can anyone advise us as to whether dietary treatment is normal for a 2 to 3-year old child?
Should she be on ARVs at such a young age?
Is there anything else we can do?

Your help in this matter would be very much appreciated.
