[Correspondence] Defeating AIDS but missing children

We welcome the report Defeating AIDS—advancing global health (July 11, p 171).1 The Commission generated four scenarios, providing a blueprint for forward thinking on the AIDS response. However, there is a gaping omission. We note within the 48 page document the word child/children appears 44 times. Ten within the references. Of the 34 mentions in the body of the text, 31 refer to “mother-to-child”. The other three times are rightful lamentations of slow roll out and inadequate treatment formulations for children.
