OTHER DISEASES

People living with HIV are at higher risk of acquiring any other infection and diseases, including non-communicable diseases, due to HIV itself and drug side effects.

  • Treat any other infection (e.g. malaria, STI) as per guidelines for the general population
  • Screen regularly for NCD (diabetes, hypertension and depression)
  • Screen women at enrollment in HIV care and then annually for cervical cancer using Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid (VIA)
