Abstract

The acquisition of drug-resistance mutations among African children living with HIV on antiretroviral treatment has been scarcely reported. This threatens the overall success
of antiretroviral programs and the clinical outcomes of children in care. We present a well-characterized series of children from rural Tanzania with acquired drug-resistance
mutations to contribute to the better understanding of this emerging public health concern.
