AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe population of HIV-exposed uninfected (HEU) children is expanding rapidly, and over one million HEU infants are born each year globally. Several recent studies have reported that HEU children, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, are at risk of poor outcomes, including impaired growth and neurodevelopment. However, the reasons for poor clinical outcomes amongst HEU children remain unclear.Recent FindingsWe summarise the findings from recent large studies that have characterised growth and neurodevelopment in HEU children, identified risk factors and explored underlying mechanistic p...
In conclusion, reducing the physical burden in terms of number of daily patient transfers, providing the necessary assistive devices, and cultivating good collaboration between colleagues are important factors in preventing occupational back injuries among healthcare workers.
Although antiretroviral therapy (ART) has greatly reduced the incidence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and increased the life expectancy of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients, approximately 770,000 people still died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2018 worldwide (UNAIDS, 2019). In Taiwan, at the end of 2018, there were 31,453 people living with HIV infection, with 2,064 newly diagnosed HIV cases and 1,116 people reported with AIDS (Taiwan CDC, 2019). AIDS-defining illnesses (ADIs) include a wide range of opportunistic infections (OIs) and cancers.
