Title of Collaborative Activity:

HHS Panel for the Prevention and Treatment of Opportunistic Infections in HIV-Exposed and HIV-Infected Children

Description of Collaborative Activity:

This committee has the purpose of updating the U.S. Pediatric opportunistic infection prevention and treatment guidelines for HIV-Exposed and HIV-Infected Children and serves as executive secretary. These guidelines are developed by a panel of specialists in pediatric HIV infection and infectious diseases (the Panel on Opportunistic Infections in HIV-Exposed and HIV-Infected Children) from the U.S. government and academic institutions. The Panel is a working group of the Office of AIDS Research Advisory Council. For each OI, one or more pediatric specialists with subject-matter expertise reviews the literature for new information since the last guidelines were published, and then proposes revised recommendations for review by the full Panel. After these reviews and discussions, the guidelines undergo further revision, with review and approval by the Panel, and final review and endorsement by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA) of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), and the Pediatric Infectious Disease Society (PIDS). The Panel also received input from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
