National Manual for the Management of HIV-related Opportunistic Infections and Conditions

Ministry of Health, Kenya, (2008)

A healthcare worker manual. 2nd edition The development of this National Manual for the Management of HIV-related Opportunistic Infections and Conditions for use by health care workers at the frontline of our fight against HIV/AIDS is intended to improve their understanding of the causes, prevention and appropriate management of opportunistic infections and conditions in adults and adolescents (OIs in children is covered effectively in the Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses – IMCI – materials). It is also intended to be a practical guide at the clinic level, so as to improve quality of life, treatment outcomes and survival of PLHA. Crucially, this manual uses a “symptom-based” approach to support health care workers at the most basic primary level to be able to effectively initiate the care of PLHA with OIs and refer patients as appropriate (effective triage of patients at the primary care level). The result of this will be to move the management of OIs closer to the patient while ensuring that referral links with higher-level facilities and care is cultivated.

Meilleures pratiques en matière d’intégration des services de soins TB et VIH/Sida; Expérience de cinq pays : Bénin, Cambodge, Kenya, Malawi et Rwanda

Eliud Wandwalo, Management Sciences for Health Claire Moodie, Management Sciences for Health Yared Kebede Haile, KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation Amos Kutwa, KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation Odile Ferroussier, Union internationale contre la tuberculose et les maladies respiratoires Chawalit Natpratan, Family Health International, (2010)

Dans la plupart des pays, les services de lutte contre la tuberculose (TB) sont décentralisés jusqu’aux dispensaires les plus périphériques et souvent au sein même des villages et des quartiers. Par contre, les services de lutte contre le VIH/Sida sont généralement beaucoup plus centralisés parce que la diffusion des soins, notamment de la thérapie antirétrovirale (TARV), n’a commencé qu’assez récemment. De ce fait, les patients qui ont besoin d’un traitement à la fois contre la tuberculose et le VIH/Sida peuvent être obligés de se rendre dans deux établissements distincts et ainsi d’avoir à parcourir de longues distances pour accéder aux soins. L’absence de services intégrés TB/VIH peut provoquer des retards dans le diagnostic et le traitement, et même se traduire par un mauvais suivi des traitements, voire par des interruptions. Par ailleurs, les patients ont à supporter la charge financière des frais de déplacement et des autres coûts indirects, tels que de longs temps d’attente et une perte de revenu

Baseline assessment of community based TB services in 8 WHO ENGAGE-TB priority countries

World Health Organization WHO, (2018)

This document contains a series of desk reviews for the eight ENGAGE-TB priority countries supported by the Global Fund (DRC, Kenya, Indonesia, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan and Tanzania). The document provides a situation assessment and gap analysis about the state of community based TB activities in these countries. The focus on these eight countries was justified by the high prevalence of TB and the very high number of missed/unreported cases.
