Printer-friendly versionPDF version

SUMMARY

HIV/AIDS children have an impaired immune system.

Gingivitis is an inflammatory disease thus IS likely to be higher III HIV children compared with normal children

A descriptive cross-sectional study will be carried out to determine the prevalence and severity of gingivitis among HIV positive children, at a children's home in Nairobi. A total of 76 children of both sexes aged between 2 - 15 years will be examined. A semi structured data collection form was used to collect data. The plaque score and gingival index of each child will be recorded.

Not many studies have been conducted on HIV positive children in Kenya. This study will be aimed to determine whether the prevalence of gingivitis in HIV positive children's greater or not than that of normal children.

Thus more studies should be carried out on different aspects of the oral status of poor underprivileged children, to find out the magnitude of oral manifestations of this yet incurable disease.
