NTU-invited Imperial College expert talks about paediatric HIV infections and World Aids Day

More public education is necessary to ensure that the healthcare system can detect children infected with HIV, so as to get them treated early. Without such detection - or what Dr Gareth Tudor-Williams of Imperial College London called "missed opportunities" - HIV would only present its obvious symptoms in an infected child's teenaged years. But by then, it will be too late as the virus would have already damaged the child's immune system and it is harder to treat the patient. Dr Tudor-Williams, was in town at the invitation of NTU’s Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine.
