Wongani is a 22-month-old boy who is brought into hospital very sick, a month after starting treatment (ART). His history shows a series of missed opportunities as well as his struggle to recover. 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 info@picturinghealth.org
