HIV Care

AIC has been providing palliative care through its medical department in all regional centres.  Clients who test HIV positive have a CD4 count done, get screened for TB and visit a medical Officer and Counselor for any medical problem.  They receive Septrin for prophylaxis as well as INH prophylaxis for TB.  We  provide treatment for STIs as well as OI treatment.  They are registered in the HIV care register and monthly reported through Health Management Information System (HMIS) to Ministry of Health.  On average AIC provides HIV care to 4,000 HIV positive clients annually.  Apart from HIV positive clients going through the medical department, they are referred to the post Test Club where they interact with fellow HIV positive clients for psychosocial and spiritual counseling.

For more than 20 years, AIC has built its capacity in the provision of ARVs.  It has provided CD4 testing, adherence counseling to patients on ART, supported more than 30,000 clients on treatment from different service providers. AIC is accredited to offer ART in all its 8 regional centers and currently has over 300 clients on ART since October 2012. AIC receives ARVs form JMS through MOH. Specifically AIC targets TB/HIV co-infected patients, HIV positive clients in a discordant relationship as well as children and sex workers.
