The AIDS 2012 conference also featured new research on several other areas of importance for children and adolescents:
- Early HIV diagnosis and treatment that preserves the health of adults is likely to keep children in school for longer, a Ugandan study shows, and results in less household poverty.
- More evidence came from Malawi to show that HIV testing at immunisation clinics is a good way to increase rates of HIV diagnosis in both infants and their mothers, at an early point during the breastfeeding period.
- Male partner involvement can increase the chances that mothers will test for HIV during pregnancy.
