ARROW is a 5 year clinical trial of anti-HIV therapy in 1200 children with HIV or AIDS in Uganda and Zimbabwe.

The trial aims to investigate two main questions: can anti-HIV drugs be given in the absence of routine laboratory tests, relying on clinical assessments instead; and whether starting children on 4 anti-HIV drugs for a short period of time before continuing with 3 drugs is better over the long term than starting on the standard 3 drugs.
