Flora is a five-year-old girl, who has defaulted on ART. She comes into hospital with a severe swelling in her mouth caused by an infection in her gum. She is also malnourished. 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 email@example.com
