Arry DieudonneAs a Pediatric Infectious Diseases specialist trained at the peak of pediatric HIV infection, I have developed a major interest in that disease. Since my fellowship years, we have learned from our patients, we have trained hundreds of physicians and healthcare workers from all over the world including the United States of America, and with my colleagues, we have heavily collaborated in making pediatric HIV infection what it is nowadays, a chronic and manageable disease.
