The ability of caregivers of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–infected children to correctly identify or describe their child's antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimen has been associated with higher levels of ART adherence.1,2 We hypothesized that children whose caregivers could correctly describe their ART regimens would also have better HIV disease parameters as measured by CD4 percentage and HIV viral load.
