REGIONAL NETWORKS

Supporting regional Paediatric and Family HIV Treatment Networks. This network was set up in 2006, originating in the Children’s HIV National Network (CHINN) Review that was published in that year recommending the development of national networks for paediatric and perinatal HIV. Read the ‘Review of The Children’s HIV National Network (CHINN) 2014 by Dr Fiona Thompson and Dr Steve Welch.

CHIVA Networks developed out of these recommendations, setting out the details of multi-disciplinary teams (MDTs) for each region of the UK and Ireland. Information includes model forms for clinical uses, local newsletters, and local events. If you would like to add any additional information for a particular region, such as newsletters, meetings or events please email: [email protected]. You can find further clinic guidelines in our guidelines area.
