Adam Bartlett is a Paediatric Infectious Diseases Physician (Sydney Children's Hospital) and Conjoint Associate Lecturer (School of Women's and Children's Health). His PhD focuses on the management and outcomes for adolescents with perinatal HIV infection in Asia through a collaboration between the Kirby Institute and the TREAT Asia Paediatric HIV Network.

Abstract

Adolescents with perinatal HIV infection are an expanding population that are vulnerable to poor outcomes as they deal with a chronic infection and lifelong antiretroviral therapy during a complex period of psychosocial development. Understanding the management and outcomes for adolescents with HIV is key to informing optimal models of care.
