Globally, 2.73 million children younger than 15 years are living with HIV, according to the UNAIDS 2022 report; 160,000 children acquired HIV in 2021, and 110,000 AIDS-related deaths occurred in that year. The African continent is the epicentre of the HIV pandemic, accounting for almost 85% of vertical transmissions. Levels of access to ART vary, from 56% in eastern and southern Africa to 35% in western and central Africa.
