A number of Department of Health and Human Services agencies, including the FDA, are sponsoring a live 2-hour satellite downlink video program that will examine issues related to perinatal transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in Pediatric HIV Infection. It will take place on July 22, 1998, from 1 to 3 PM Eastern time. The pediatric guidelines were developed at a meeting convened by the National Pediatric and Family HIV Resource Center, Health Resources and Services Administration, and the National Institutes of Health by specialists in the care of HIV-infected infants, children and adolescents, family members of HIV-infected children, and government agency representatives. The guidelines address pediatric-specific issues related to antiretroviral treatment and provide general guidelines to physicians who care for infected children and adolescents. The guidelines may be obtained through the Internet on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention AIDS Clearinghouse Web site at http://www.cdcnpin.org/ or at the AIDS Treatment Information Service Web site at http://www.hivatis.org. They may also be obtained by telephone from the AIDS Clearinghouse at (800) 458-5231.
