Abstract

We estimated the prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disclosure in children from a prospective observational cohort study conducted at clinical sites in Brazil, Mexico, and Peru. Fewer than half of the children in this study knew their HIV status, which highlights the need for better strategies for disclosure that are age and culturally appropriate.
