Recent Advances in the Neurological and Neurodevelopmental Impact of HIV is an essential resource for all clinicians involved in the care of children and adolescents with HIV and their families, including doctors, paediatricians, psychologists, and other health practitioners and researchers. Compiled and written by clinician-researchers from sub-Saharan Africa predominantly, the chapters provide comprehensive, well-written reviews of the major research findings in this field – informative for both novice and expert alike. Importantly, the chapters also convey the authors’ considerable experience in applying these research findings in real-world clinical settings, particularly in the low-resource health systems where the impact of the HIV pandemic is most felt. This gives the book a richness and immediacy beyond simply providing information. Available in eBook and hardback.
