Abstract: The article considers the statistical and cause-effect relationship between social conditions and two groups of features characterizing the psychophysical development and incidence in HIV infected children from residential institutions in comparison with a group of HIV infected children from families. The authors have obtained data on the adverse influence of social living conditions (residential institutions) on the health of HIV infected children. HIV infected children without parental care, living in residential institutions, are more vulnerable in terms of a number of factors and need enhanced integrated medical and social support to correct the existing defects and improve the quality of life.
