Staged Introduction of Antiretroviral Therapy Into a Family with Multiple HIV-Infected Members

Staged Introduction of Antiretroviral Therapy Into a Family with Multiple HIV-Infected Members Children and families bear a significant burden of human immunodeficiency virus disease globally, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Care of severely affected families can be adversely impacted by high medication burdens and overwhelmed caregivers, who themselves may be human immunodeficiency virus infected. Family-centered care involving joint clinic days, treatment preparation, adherence counseling, and community-based follow-up may improve the care of family units. We describe the successful treatment of a single family composed of 6 infected members living in a rural African setting. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of the International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care SAGE

Abstract

Children and families bear a significant burden of human immunodeficiency virus disease globally, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Care of severely affected families can be adversely impacted by high medication burdens and overwhelmed caregivers, who themselves may be human immunodeficiency virus infected. Family-centered care involving joint clinic days, treatment preparation, adherence counseling, and community-based follow-up may improve the care of family units. We describe the successful treatment of a single family composed of 6 infected members living in a rural African setting.
