The comprehensive reference book - "Principles of Perinatal and Pediatric HIV/AIDS," is the first of its kind from the Indian sub-continent. It is a compilation of immense knowledge and experience from experts in the field from all over the world and includes as many as 47 chapters addressing in depth all issues related to perinatal and pediatric HIV/AIDS including medical, social, psychological, legal and nursing issues. The standard medical textbooks deal with this enormous issue of immense medical and psychosocial importance with just one chapter dedicated in the whole book, which does not provide the essential details necessary to equip medical students/doctors treating HIV/AIDS with appropriate up to date knowledge.

This book is a sincere effort with no financial or commercial gains int

ended, towards making better care and treatment available to these unfortunate children. The book has been recently approved as a reference book for Postgraduate Medical Students in the state of Maharashtra (MUHS).
