Mis-reading of the alignment in table 3 of this paper (table 2 in the abridged version) by D M Gibb and colleagues led us to print the hazard ratios for death and AIDS/death incorrectly for “How the child was identified” (BMJ 2003;327:1019-23). The hazard ratios for “prospectively from birth” and “after birth” should be inverted: the values for children identified after birth are therefore 1, and for children identified prospectively from birth 0.49 (95% confidence interval 0.31 to 0.78) and 0.44 (0.30 to 0.64).
