Baby Chisomo is a newborn who has been brought to hospital after being found abandoned by a river. Because the status of the mother is unknown, she is treated as if she has been exposed to HIV. These films follow children over time, recording clinic visits or admissions to hospital, stopping to ask questions whenever treatment decisions need to be made. Suggested answers are contained in accompanying notes, which can be downloaded. Editable versions for adapting to different settings can be obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org
