Victor is a seven-month-old baby who arrives in hospital with his HIV+ mother, who is diagnosed with advanced TB. Victor is severely wasted and very sick. 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
