Abstract

Objective: The Pediatric HIV/AIDS Treatment Registry (pNHTAR) was initiated to document data related to pediatric HIV cases in Malaysia. The objectives of this project are to determine the socio-demographic characteristics, to assess the antiretroviral treatment regimes received and outcomes of the patients. Methods: This is an observational study over one year period involving all HIV-positive cases in Kuala Lumpur Hospital. Data pertaining to socio-demographic characteristics, CD4 count, RNA and outcome of the patients were reviewed and entered to the registry. The first report of the PNHTAR was completed for Hospital Kuala Lumpur who has one of the biggest numbers of patients in Malaysia. Result: A total of 116 patients were registered in the cohort, with 113 were under follow-up. The main route of transmission in our cohort was maternal to child transmission, followed by breast milk and blood product. Overall, 72.5% (79 patients) had CD4 count more than 500 cell/mm3 at their last follow-up and 41% were on primary treatment regime. Conclusion: The project proved that pNHTAR is important in providing solid data of HIV children in Malaysia hence improving overall understanding of these children.
