Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the correct dose of Vitamin D to give to prevent HIV related complications.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in Serum 25(OH)D3 Levels [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Evaluate the dose-related efficacy of correction of Vitamin D deficiency for 25(OH)D3 levels in a group of HIV-infected children and young adults and a matched healthy control group in a randomized controlled study of different dosing regimens of oral Vitamin D supplementation: control dose (18,000 IU per month) or supplemented dose (medium 60,000IU per month or high dose 120,000IU/month )


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in Vitamin D Binding Protein (VDBP) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Evaluate the dose-related efficacy of vitamin D binding Protein in levels in the blood in a group of HIV-infected children and young adults and a matched healthy control group in a randomized controlled study of different dosing regimens of oral vitamin D supplementation.
