Proper use of the female condom (vaginal sex)

It is advisable to decide on the use of a condom with your partner beforehand as you may forget in
the heat of the moment.
Always check the expiry or manufacture date on the condom package to make sure it has not expired.
Make sure it is not more than 4 years old.
Using your fingers, carefully open the condom at the indicated place. Make sure your fingernails do not
damage the condom. DO NOT use sharp objects, such a scissors or a razor as they may cut the

Hold the condom at its closed end. Squeeze the inner ring (the ring at the closed end of the condom)
between the thumb and the middle finger with the forefinger between the two.
Spread the vaginal lips with the other hand, and insert the condom in the vagina.
Use your forefinger to push the inner ring all the way up in the vagina until you feel the pubic bone
with your finger.
Make sure the outer ring (at the open side of the condom) lies against the outer lips.
Guide and insert the penis inside the condom. Make sure the penis does not go underneath or beside
the condom.
If during intercourse the penis does not move freely, there is a sound, or the condom is moving in and
out with the penis, add lubricant (to the penis or inside the condom).
If the outer ring is pushed in the vagina or the penis goes beneath or to the side of the condom, stop
and put on a new condom.
Keep the condom on during intercourse. After ejaculation and after the penis is pulled out, squeeze and
twist the outer ring to avoid spilling semen and pulling the condom out of the vagina.
Wrap the condom in toilet paper and, as soon as possible, throw it away out of reach of others. Do
NOT flush the condom down the toilet.
NEVER reuse the condom.

Annexure 4: Disinfection of Needles and Syringes with Bleach

Injecting drug users often do not have access to a steady supply of disposable syringes, and re-use/share
needles with other IDUs. The procedure below can be taught to them to minimize the risk of HIV transmission
under such circumstances. Remember, where available disposable, unshared needles are always the first

It will probably take 5-10 minutes to follow the recommended procedures for
cleaning and disinfecting.
Fill the needle and syringe completely with clean water
Shake vigorously for 30 seconds, and shoot out the water into the sink or
onto the ground
Repeat the process
Then, completely fill the needle and syringe (to the top) with full-strength (not
diluted) liquid household bleach several times.
Keep the bleach for at least 30 seconds
Shoot out the bleach and repeat
Rinse the syringe and needle by completely filling several times with CLEAN

Cleaning and disinfecting should be done at two points of timeonce
immediately after use and again just before re-use of needles and syringes.
ALL used solutions should be disposed of (e.g. by placing in a waste container
or pouring down a sink or toilet or on the ground). DO NOT REUSE.
Every time the cleansing process is repeated, the more likely HIV and other
blood borne pathogens will be inactivated
Taking the syringe apart by removing the plunger may also improve the
cleaning/disinfection of parts that might be hard to reach (e.g., behind the
Although it is important to follow all steps in the bleach disinfection procedures
to ensure maximum effectiveness, drug users who indicate they may be
unable to do so should be encouraged to perform as much of the process
as possible.
The more steps done, the more effective the disinfection process is likely to
be in reducing risk of HIV transmission.

Annexure 6: Guidelines for Disposal of Used Disposable
Needles and Syringes

No. Steps / Stages

Sever needles from disposable syringe immediately after administering injection using a needle
cutter/hub-cutter that removes the needle from disposable syringes or cuts plastic hub of
syringe from AD syringes
The cut needles get collected in the puncture proof container of the needle cutter/hub-cutter.
The container should contain an appropriate disinfectant and the cut needles should be completely
immersed in the disinfectant
Segregate and store syringes and unbroken (but discarded) vials in a red bag or container.
Send the collected materials to the common bio-medical waste treatment facilities. If such
facilities do not exist, then go to the next step.
Treat the collected material in an autoclave. If this is unavailable, treat the waste in 1%
hypochlorite solution or boil in water for at least 10 minutes. It shall be ensured that these
treatments ensure disinfection
Dispose the autoclaved waste as follows: (i) Dispose the needles and broken vials in a pit /
tank, (ii) Send the syringes and unbroken vials for recycling or landfill.
Wash the containers properly for reuse
Make a proper record of generation, treatment and disposal of waste

Annexure 10 : NACO PEP Policy: Procedure to be followed
after an Accidental Exposure to HIV Infectious Fluid

Do Do Not

Remove gloves, if appropriate Do not panic

Wash the exposed site thoroughly with Do not put pricked finger in mouth
running water
Irrigate with water or saline if exposure sites Do not squeeze wound to bleed it
are eyes or mouth
Wash skin with soap and water Do not use Bleach, Chlorine, Alcohol, Betadine,
Iodine or other antiseptics/detergents on
the wound

** Do - Consult the designated physician immediately as per institutional guidelines for

management of the occupational exposure **

Step 1: Management of Exposure Site First Aid

For skin if the skin is broken after a needle-stick or sharp instrument:
Immediately wash the wound and surrounding skin with water and soap, and rinse. Do not scrub.
Do not use antiseptics or skin washes (Bleach, Chlorine, Alcohol, Betadine)
After a splash of blood or body fluids:
To unbroken skin:
Wash the area immediately
Do not use antiseptics
For the eye :
Irrigate exposed eye immediately with water or normal saline
Sit in a chair, tilt head back and ask a colleague to gently pour water or normal saline over the eye.
If wearing contact lens, leave them in place while irrigating, as they form a barrier over the eye and
will help protect it. Once the eye is cleaned, remove the contact lens and clean them in the normal
manner. This will make them safe to wear again
Do not use soap or disinfectant on the eye.
For mouth :
Spit fluid out immediately
Rinse the mouth thoroughly, using water or saline and spit again. Repeat this process several times
Do not use soap or disinfectant in the mouth
Consult the designated physician of the institution for Management of the Exposure immediately.

Step 2: Risk assessment

The HIV sero-conversion rate of 0.3% after an AEB (for Percutaneous Exposure) is an average rate. The
real risk of transmission depends on the amount of HIV transmitted ( amount of contaminated fluid and the
viral load).
A designated person/trained doctor must assess the risk of HIV and HBV transmission following an AEB.
This evaluation must be made rapidly, so as to start any treatment as soon as possible after the accident

HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses Facilitator Guide

Section Four: Annexure-10 Page 347
(Ideally within 2 hours but certainly within 72 hours). This assessment must be made thoroughly (because
not every AEB requires prophylactic treatment).

PEP must be initiated as soon as possible, preferably within 2 hours

Two main factors determine the risk of infection: the nature of exposure and the status of the source patient.

Step 2 (a): Assessing the nature of Exposure and Risk of Transmission

Three categories of exposure can be described based on the amount of blood/fluid involved and the entry
port. These categories are intended to help in assessing the severity of the exposure but may not cover
all possibilities.

Categories of exposure

Category Definition and example

Mild exposure: Mucous membrane/non-intact skin with small volumes

E.g. : a superficial wound (erosion of the epidermis) with a plain or low
calibre needle, or contact with the eyes or mucous membranes,
subcutaneous injections following small-bore needles
Moderate exposure: Mucous membrane/non intact skin with large volumes OR
Percutaneous superficial exposure with solid needle
E.g.: a cut or needle stick injury penetrating gloves.
Severe exposure: Percutaneous with large volume e.g.:
An accident with a high calibre needle (>=18 G) visibly
contaminated with blood;
A deep wound (haemorrhagic wound and/or very painful);
Transmission of a significant volume of blood;
An accident with material that has previously been used
intravenously or intra-arterially.

The wearing of gloves during any of these accidents constitutes a protective factor.
Note: In case of an AEB with material such as discarded sharps/needles, contaminated for over 48 hours,
the risk of infection becomes negligible for HIV, but still remains significant for HBV. HBV survives longer
than HIV outside the body.

Step 2 (b): Assessment of the Exposed individual

The exposed individual should have confidential counselling and assessment by an experience physician.
The exposed individual should be assessed for pre-existing HIV infection as PEP is intended for people
who are HIV negative at the time of their potential exposure to HIV. Exposed individuals who are known
or discovered to be HIV positive should not receive PEP. They should be offered counselling and information
on prevention of transmission and referred to clinical and laboratory assessment to determine eligibility for
antiretroviral therapy (ART). Besides the medical assessment, counselling of the exposed HCP is essential
to allay fear and start PEP (if required) at the earliest.

Step 2(c): Assessing the HIV status of the source of exposure

PEP needs to be started as soon as possible after the exposure and within 72 hours. In animal studies,
initiating PEP within 12, 24 or 36 hours of exposure was more effective than initiating PEP 48 hours or 72
hours following exposure. PEP is not effective when given more than 72 hours after exposure.
A baseline Rapid HIV testing should be done before starting PEP.

Facilitator Guide HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses

Page 348 Section Four: Annexure-10
Initiation of PEP where indicated should not be delayed while waiting for the results of HIV testing of the
source of exposure. Informed consent should be obtained before testing of the source as per national HIV
testing guidelines.

Categories of situations depending on results of the source

Source HIV Status Definition of risk in source

HIV negative Source is not HIV infected but consider HBV and HCV
Low risk HIV positive and clinically asymptomatic
High risk HIV positive and clinically symptomatic (see WHO clinical staging)
Unknown Status of the patient is unknown, and neither the patient nor his/her blood
is available for testing (e.g. injury during medical waste management the
source patient might be unknown). The risk assessment will be based only
upon the exposure (HIV prevalence in the locality can be considered).

HIV infection is not detected during the primary infection period by routine-use HIV tests. During the
window period , which lasts for approximately 6 weeks, the antibody level is still too low for detection
but infected persons can still have a high viral load. This implies that a positive HIV test result can help
in taking the decision to start PEP, but a negative test result does not exclude HIV infection. In countries
or population groups with a high HIV prevalence, a higher proportion of HIV-infected individuals are found
in the window period. In these situations, a negative result has even less value for decision-making on PEP.

Step 3: Informed consent from exposed person

Exposed persons (clients) should receive appropriate information about what PEP is about and the risk and
benefits of PEP in order to provided informed consent. It should be clear that PEP is not mandatory.

Key information to provide informed consent to the client after occupational exposure

Key information to Exposed Person (Client) Specific Details include

The risk of acquiring HIV infection from Ask client for understanding of HIV
the specific exposure transmission risk after exposure
The risk of getting HIV infection from a
person known to be HIV positive is estimated
to be
Sharps injury: 3 in 1000 exposures (0.3%)
Mucous membrane splash: 1 in 1000
exposures (0.1%)
the risk is increased with large exposure e.g.
needle-stick from hollow bore needles with
visible blood, from artery or vein and from
source patients with high viral load
(usually very sick persons with OIs)
What is known about PEP efficacy Ask Clients understanding of PEP
PEP is provided to prevent potential
transmission of HIV
PEP is not 100% effective and should be
given within 72 hours (ideally as soon as
possible, if eligible).
Balance risk and benefits of PEP: PEP may
prevent HIV transmission, versus possible
risk of side effects

HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses Facilitator Guide

Section Four: Annexure-10 Page 349
Key information to Exposed Person (Client) Specific Details include

Information about clients risk of HIV Clients possibility of prior HIV infection
infection based upon a risk assessment should be assessed
(if s/he has not had a recent HIV test) Counsel for HIV testing and follow-up
The importance of being tested and psychosocial support where possible rapid
receiving appropriate post-test counselling testing should be used based on national
(although HIV testing can be delayed testing guidelines
if needed) Inform if the Baseline HIV test is positive,
PEP medicines will be discontinued then the PEP will be discontinued
if their initial (baseline) HIV test is positive Arrange referral to ART centres for
assessment if found HIV positive

Importance of adhering to medication Discuss dosing of the PEP medicine e.g.

once started Pill should be taken twice a day for 28 days,
Duration of the course of medicine once in the morning and once in the evening
(4 weeks) Depending on the nature and risk of exposure,
2 drugs or 3 drugs may be used
Side effects may be important with use of 3 drugs
Expert opinion/consultation by phone or
referral may be needed with a HIV specialist
if 3rd drug is to be used
Arrange for special leave from work
(2 weeks initially)

Common side effects that may be Discuss possible side effects of the PEP
experienced medicines e.g. Nausea, Fatigue, Headache
(depending on which drugs given)
Side effects often improve over time. It is
often minor and do not need specialised
Symptomatic relief can also be given by
using other drugs

They can stop at any time but will Animal studies suggest that taking less than
not get the benefit of PEP if the source 4 weeks of PEP does not work
is HIV positive If client decides to stop at any time, s/he
needs to contact the physician before
stopping the medications
Arrange for follow-up visit and decide further
course of action/follow-up

Prevention during the PEP period e.g. After any AEB, the exposed person should
sexual intercourse and unplanned pregnancy not have unprotected sexual intercourse until
it is confirmed, 3 months after the exposure,
that s/he is not HIV infected.
It is also advised to avoid pregnancy.
Use of condoms is essential

If Client is pregnant she can still take The PEP drugs used are safe for pregnancy
PEP during pregnancy If the client gets HIV during the pregnancy
due to the exposure, the baby will have
some risk of becoming HIV infected

Facilitator Guide HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses

Page 350 Section Four: Annexure-10
Key information to exposed person (client) Specific Details include

Safety of PEP if the client is breastfeeding The PEP drugs used are safe during
May consider stopping breastfeeding if
PEP is indicated.

Educate client on the possible signs and Signs and symptoms of early HIV sero-
symptoms of early HIV sero-conversion conversation: Fever, Rash, Oral Ulcers,
Pharyngitis, Malaise, Fatigue, Joint Pains,
Weight loss, Myalgia, headache
(similar to Flu-like symptoms)

Risk of acquiring Hepatitis B and C from Risk of Hepatitis B is 9-30% from a Needle
a specific exposure and availability of Stick Exposure the client can be given
prophylaxis for this vaccinations
Risk of Hepatitis is 1-10% after Needle Stick
Exposure there are no vaccinations for this.

* Provider should correct misconceptions at all times during the counselling sessions

Psychological support:
Many people will feel anxious after exposure. Every exposed person needs to be informed about the risks
and the measures that can be taken. This will help to relieve part of the anxiety, but some may require
further specialised psychological support.
Documentation on record is essential. Special leave from work should be considered for a period of time
e.g. 2 weeks (initially) then, as required based on assessment of the exposed persons mental state, side
effects and requirements.

Practical application in the clinical settings:

Once Prophylactic treatment has begun, the exposed person must sign form A1.
Informed consent also means that if the exposed person has been advised PEP, but refuses to start

An information sheet covering the PEP and the biological follow-up after any AEB may be given to the
person under treatment. However, this sheet cannot replace verbal explanations.
Arrange for follow-up visit and leave from work.

Step 4: Deciding on PEP Medications/Regimen

Deciding on therapy
There are two types of regimens:
a) Basic regimen: 2-drug combination
b) Expanded regimen: 3-drug combination
The decision to initiate the type of regimen depends on the type of exposure and HIV serostatus of the
source person. See Table 6.

HIV Post-exposure Prophylaxis Evaluation

HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses Facilitator Guide

Section Four: Annexure-10 Page 351
Exposure Status of source
HIV+ and HIV+ and Clinically HIV status unknown
asymptomatic symptomatic

Mild Consider 2-drug PEP Start 2- drug PEP Usually no PEP or consider 2-drug PEP
Moderate Start 2-drug PEP Start 3-drug PEP Usually no PEP or consider 2-drug PEP
Severe Start 3-drug PEP Start 3-drug PEP Usually no PEP or consider 2-drug PEP

HIV testing of the source patient should not delay the decision about whether or not to start PEP. Start
2-drugs first if required, then send for consultation or refer.
In the case of a high risk exposure from a source patient who has been exposed to or is taking
Antiretroviral medications, consult an expert to choose the PEP regimen, as the risk of drug resistance
is high. Refer/consult expert physician. Start 2 drug regimens first.

Expert opinion may be obtained for the following situations:

(Refer to list of PEP experts on
Delay in reporting exposure (> 72 hours)
Unknown source: Use of PEP to be decided on case to case basis after considering the severity of
exposure and the Epidemiologic likelihood of HIV transmission. Do not delay PEP initiation if indicated
Known or suspected pregnancy: Do not delay PEP, if indicated
Breastfeeding issues in the exposed person: Do not delay PEP if indicated. Consider stopping breast
feeding, if PEP is indicated.
Source patient is on ART or possibly has HIV Drug resistance : Refer/Consult as soon as possible
Major toxicity of PEP regimen: minor side effects may be managed symptomatically. Refer to expert
if non-tolerance or non-adherence
Refer/ consult if in doubt or complicated cases (e.g. major psychological problem)

Step 5: Starting PEP

Various animal studies done over the years have provided encouraging evidence of post exposure
chemoprophylactic efficacy. Studies have also shown that delaying initiation, shortening the duration or
decreasing the antiretroviral dose of PEP, individually or in combination, decreased its prophylactic efficacy.
In a retrospective case control study of HCP, it was demonstrated that use of Zidovudine as PEP was
associated with a reduction in the risk of HIV infection by approximately 81%. Also the experience in HIV
infected patients has shown that combination of different antiretroviral agents is superior to monotherapy
regimen, so a combination of two or three drugs in PEP regimen should be more beneficial than a single
drug. One needs to consider toxicity of a combination regimen vis--vis risk of transmission.

PEP must be initiated as soon as possible, preferably within 2 hours

Initiate HIV Chemoprophylaxis

Because Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) has its greatest effect, if begun within 2 hours of exposure, it
is essential to act immediately. There is little benefit if >72 hours later. The prophylaxis needs to be
continued for 4 weeks.
Report exposure immediately to appropriate authority.
Fill in the medical form
Never delay start of therapy due to debate over regimen. Begin with basic 2-drug regimen, and once
expert advice is obtained, change as required.
The 3rd drug can be added after consultation with an expert.

Note: If Protease Inhibitor is not available and the 3rd drug is indicated, one can consider using Efavirenz
(EFV 600 mg once daily). Monitoring should be instituted for side effects of this drug e.g. CNS toxicity
such as Nightmares, Insomnia etc.

* Fixed Dose Combination (FDC) are preferred, if available. Ritonavir requires refrigeration.

(basic PEP regimen) Zidovudine (AZT) + Stavudine (d4T) +
Lamivudine (3TC) Lamivudine (3TC)
3-drug regimen (expanded PEP regimen) consult expert opinion for starting 3rd drug e.g.
Not recommended ddI + d4T combination
NNRTI such as Nevirapine should not be used in PEP

More information on alternative schedules is available in the latest update USPHS guidelines issued 30
September 2005. ( or
Selection of the PEP regimen when the source patient is known to be on ART: The physician should
consider the comparative risk represented by the exposure and information about the exposure source,
including history of and response to antiretroviral therapy based on clinical response, CD4 cell counts, Viral
load measurements (if available), and current disease stage (WHO clinical staging and history). When the
source persons virus is known or suspected to be resistant to one or more of the drugs considered for the
PEP regimen, the selection of drugs to which the source persons virus is unlikely to be resistant is
recommended. Refer for expert opinion.
If this information is not immediately available, initiation of PEP, if indicated, should not be delayed.
Give the 2 drug (basic) regimen. Changes in the PEP regimen can be made after PEP has been started,
as appropriate. Re-evaluation of the exposed person should be considered within 72 hours Post-Exposure,
especially as additional information about the exposure or source person becomes available.

Antiretroviral Drugs during Pregnancy

If the Exposed person is pregnant, the evaluation of risk of infection and need for PEP should be approached
as with any other person who has had an HIV exposure. However, the decision to use any Antiretroviral

HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses Facilitator Guide

Section Four: Annexure-10 Page 353
drug during pregnancy should involve discussion between the woman and her Health-Care Provider(s)
regarding the potential benefits and risks to her and her fetus.
Data regarding the potential effects of Antiretroviral drugs on the developing fetus or neonate are limited.
There is a clear contraindication for Efavirenz during entire pregnancy) instead use of Nevrapine is adviced
similarly, Indinavir is contraindicated during Pre-hatal record.
In conclusion, for a female HCP considering PEP, a pregnancy test is recommended if there is any chance
that she may be pregnant. Pregnant HCP are recommended to begin the basic 2-drug regimen, and if a
third drug is needed, Nelfinavir is the drug of choice.

Side-effects and Adherence to PEP

Studies of HCP taking PEP have reported more side effects than PLHIV taking ART, most commonly
Nausea and Fatigue. Possible side-effects occur mainly at the beginning of the treatment and include
Nausea, Diarrhoea, Muscular pain and Headache. The person taking the treatment should be informed that
these may occur and should be dissuaded from stopping the treatment as most side-effects are mild
and transient, though possibly uncomfortable. Anaemia and/or leucopoenia and/or thrombocytopenia may
occur during the month of treatment. A complete blood count and liver function tests (transaminases) may
be performed at the beginning of treatment (as baseline) and after 4 weeks.
In practice and from HCP studies, many HCP did not complete the full course of PEP because of side
effects. Side effects can be reduced by prescribing regimens that do not Include a Protease Inhibitor (PI),
by giving medications to reduce Nausea and Gastritis and by educating clients about how to reduce side
effects e.g. taking PEP medications with food. It is important that side effects should be explained before
initiating PEP so that the symptoms are not confused with symptoms of Seroconversion to HIV.
Adherence information is essential with psychological support. More than 95% adherence is important in
order to maximise the efficacy of the medication in PEP.

Management of Minor ARV drug side effects

Signs or symptoms Management at health facility

Nausea Take with food. If on AZT, reassure that this is common, usually self-limited.
Treat symptomatically.
Headache Give Paracetamol. Assess for Meningitis. If on AZT or EFV, reassure that
this is common and usually self-limited. If persists more than 2 weeks,
call for advice or refer.
Diarrhoea Hydrate. Follow diarrhoea guidelines. Reassure patient that if due to ARV,
this will improve in a few weeks. Follow up in 2 weeks. If not improved,
call for advice or refer.
Fatigue This commonly lasts 4 to 6 weeks especially when starting AZT. Give
sick leave from work. If severe or longer than this, call for advice or refer.
CNS side effects: This may be due to EFV. Take EFV at night before sleeping; counsel
Anxiety, nightmares, and support (usually lasts < 3 weeks). Initial difficult time can be managed
psychosis, depression with amitriptyline at bedtime.Call for advice or refer if severe depression
or suicidal tendencies or psychosis. (Stop EFV).
Blue /black nails Reassure. It is a non-threatening side effect, common with AZT
Rash If on EFV, assess carefully. Is it a dry or wet lesion? Call for advice.
If generalised or peeling, stop drugs and refer for expert opinion.
Fever Assess clinically for Hepatitis or if this could be Primary (acute) HIV
infection or other non-HIV related infections e.g. concurrent common cold.

(check haemoglobin).

Amount of medication to dispense for PEP

All clients starting on PEP must take 4 weeks (28 days) of medication. In all cases, the first dose of PEP
should be offered as soon as possible, once the decision to give PEP is made. HIV testing or results of
the source HIV test can come later. As usage of PEP drugs is not frequent and the shelf life is 1 to 1.5
years, it is proposed that:
Starter packs for 7 days can be put in the Emergency Department with instructions to go to a
designated clinic/officer within 1-3 days for a complete risk assessment, HIV counselling and testing
and dispensing of the rest of the medications and management. At least 3 such kits are provided in
the casualty department.
It is important to monitor and regularly follow-up the person once PEP is started.

Post-Exposure Measures against Hepatitis B and C 20

All health staff should be vaccinated against Hepatitis B. The vaccination for Hepatitis B consists of 3
doses: initial, 1 month, and 6 months. Sero-conversion after completing the full course is 99%.

HBV vaccination after an AEB:

HBV vaccination status of Exposed Person Action after AEB

* Anti-HbS level > 10 IU/L No action

* Anti-HbS level <10 IU/L Hep B Vaccine Booster
Vaccinated, anti-HbS not known Hep B Vaccine Booster
Vaccinated more than 5 years ago Hep B Vaccine Booster
Never vaccinated Give complete hepatitis B vaccine series

* Antibody test (anti-HbS level), if available, is not necessary.

There is presently no prophylaxis available against hepatitis C. There is no evidence that Interferon,
pegalated or not, with or without Ribavirin is more effective when given at this time than when given
at the time of disease. Post-Exposure management for HCV is based on early identification of chronic
HCV disease and referral to a specialist for management.

Step 6: Follow up of an exposed person

Whether PEP prophylaxis has been started or not, follow up to monitor possible infections, and psychological
support are indicated.

** Transaminases should be checked at week 2 and 4 to detect hepatitis in case the exposed person
contracted HBV from the AEB.
*** For persons started on AZT-containing PEP regimens

Clinical follow-up
In addition, in the weeks following an AEB, the exposed person must be monitored for the eventual
appearance of signs indicating an HIV seroconversion: Acute Fever Generalised Lymphadenopathy,
Cutaneous Eruption, Pharyngitis, non-specific Flu symptoms and Ulcers of the mouth or Genital area.
These symptoms appear in 50%-70% of individuals with an HIV primary (acute) infection and almost always
within 3 to 6 weeks after exposure. When a primary (acute) infection is suspected, referral to an ART centre
or for expert opinion should be arranged rapidly.
An exposed person should be advised to use precautions (e.g., avoid Blood or tissue Tonations, Breastfeeding,
Unprotected sexual relations or Pregnancy) to prevent secondary transmission, especially during the first
6-12 weeks following exposure. Condom use is essential.
Adherence and side effect counseling should be provided and reinforced at every follow-up visit. Psychological
support and mental health counseling is often required.

Follow-up HIV testing:

Exposed persons should have post-PEP HIV tests. Testing at the completion of PEP may give an initial
indication of seroconversion outcome if the available antibody test is very sensitive. However, testing at 4-
6 weeks may not be enough as use of PEP may prolong the time to seroconversion; and there is not
enough time to diagnose all persons who seroconvert. Therefore, testing at 3 months and again at 6
months is recommended. Very few cases of seroconversion after 6 months have been reported. Hence,
no further testing is recommended if the HIV test at 6 months is negative.

Access and Availability to PEP at a Health Care Facility

In order to ensure that an exposed person has access to prophylactic therapy in a timely manner, it is
recommended that PEP drugs be kept available round-the-clock in any one location where a doctor is on call
24-hours a day (e.g. casualty, ICU). All health staff should know through in-house trainings where to get PEP
as required.
For the full course of drugs, this can be purchased locally to complete 4 weeks of drugs or refer to nearest ART
centre. In case these drugs are not available on site at the healthcare facility, the hospital can purchase.
It locally and it shall be reimbursed by SACS.

Clinical features
Multiple, smooth, glistening, globular papules of carrying size from a
pinhead to a split pea can appear anywhere on the body. Sexually
transmitted lesions on or around genitals can be seen. The lesions are not
painful except when secondary infection sets in. When the lesions are
squeezed, a cheesy material comes out.
Diagnosis is based on the above clinical features.
Individual lesions usually regress without treatment in 9-12 months.
Each lesion should be thoroughly opened with a fine needle or scalpel. The contents should be exposed
and the inner wall touched with 25% phenol solution or 30% trichloracetic acid.

Partner management
Timely partner management serves following purpose:
Prevention of re-infection
Prevention of transmission from infected partners and
Help in detection of asymptomatic individuals, who do not seek treatment.
Critical issues on partner management
Confidentiality Partners should be assured of confidentiality. Many times partners do not seek services, as they
perceive confidentiality as a serious problem. Respecting dignity of client and ensuring confidentiality will promote
partner management.
Voluntary reporting Providers must not impose any pre-conditions giving treatment to the index client. Providers may
need to counsel client several times to emphasize the importance of client initiated referral of the partners.
Client initiated partner management Providers should understand that because of prevailing gender inequalities,
women may not be in a position always to communicate to their partners regarding need for partner management. Such
client imitated partner management may not work in some relationships and may also put women at the risk of
violence. Hence alternative approaches should be considered in such situations.
Availability of services RTI/STI diagnostic and treatment services should be available to all partners. This may mean
finding ways to avoid long waiting times. This is important because many asymptomatic partners are reluctant to wait
or pay for services when they feel healthy.
Approaches for partner management
Date: There are two approaches to partner management:
Please attend the following centers along i. Referral by index client
with the card In this approach, index client informs the partner/s of possible infection.
Stamp of the Facility This appears to be a feasible approach, because it does not involve extra
Timings: personnel, is inexpensive and does not require any identification of partners.
A partner notification card with relevant diagnostic code should be given
Diagnostic Code:
to each index client where partner management is indicated. This approach
may also include use of client initiated therapy for all contacts.

Facilitator Guide HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses

Page 368 Section Four: Annexure-18
Annexure 18 : Management of Molluscum and Ectoparasitic

ii. Referral by providers

In this approach, service provider contacts clients partners through issuing appropriate partner notification card. This
information provided by the client is used confidentially to trace and contact partners directly. This approach needs
extra staff and is expensive
Coupon for a free examination
General principles for partner management
In general, partners should be treated for the same STI as the index xlient,
whether or not they have symptoms or signs of infection.
Health care providers should be as sure as possible about the presence of an STI before informing and treating the
partner, and should remember that other explanations are possible for most RTI symptoms like vaginal discharge.
Special care is required in notifying partners of women with lower abdominal pain who are being treated for possible
pelvic inflammatory disease. Because of the serious potential complications of PID (infertility, ectopic pregnancy),
partners should be treated to prevent possible re-infection. It should be recognized, however, that the diagnosis of PID
on clinical grounds is inaccurate, and the couple should be adequately counseled about this uncertainty. It is usually
better to offer treatment as a precaution to preserve future fertility than to mislabel someone as having an STI when
they may not have one.
Follow up visits
Follow up visits should be advised
To see reports of tests done for HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis B.
If symptoms persist, advise clients to come back for follow up after 7 days. In case of PED, follow up should be done
after 2 to 3
days. Management of treatment failure and re infection
When clients with RTI/STI do not respond to treatment, it is usually because of either treatment failure or re-infection.
Ask the following questions to ascertain the cause:
To probe treatment failure
Did you take all your medicines as directed
Did you share your medicines with anyone, or stop taking medicines after feeling some improvement
Was treatment based on the national treatment guidelines. Also consider the possibility of drug resistance if cases of
treatment failure are showing an increasing trend.
To probe for re infection
Did your partner(s) come for treatment
Did you use condoms or abstain from sex after starting treatment
For treatment failure
All cases of treatment failure should be referred to higher health facility.
For re infection
Consider re-treatment with same antibiotics.
Refer to higher health facility if symptoms persist.
Screening for Asymptomatic Clients
It is well known that most RTIs/STIs are asymptomatic, especially amongst the women. The case finding is a process
of opportunistic screening at the time when an individual presents to a health facility, regardless of presence of symptoms.
Case findings opportunities are most commonly seen while providing services for contraception. Providers should use
opportunities for potential contraceptive clients to screen for RTIs/STIs. The National Guidelines for IUD, Oral Pills,
National Sterilization Services provide detailed guidelines regarding screening of RTIs/STIs.
Similar opportunities exist in pregnancy care settings. Most common screening programmes worldwide are those for
detecting syphilis in pregnant women. Untreated syphilis in pregnant female is associated with number of adverse
outcomes such as pregnancy loss, stillbirths and congenital syphilis. Providers are recommended to follow Government
of Indias following guidelines while providing services to pregnant women:
1. Guidelines for Pregnancy Care and Management of Common Obstetric Complications by Medical Officers, 2005.
2. Guidelines for Ante-Natal Care and Skilled Attendance at Birth by ANMs and LHVs, 2006.

Annexure 21 : What a Nurse needs to know about Dementia
and Delirium

An organic mental disorder characterised by loss of intellectual abilities of sufficient severity to interfere with
social or occupational functioning. HIV-associated dementia is known as AIDS Dementia Complex (ADC)
Patients may present with ambulation/gait problems, mania, panic, psychosis, withdrawal or anxiety. Dementia
is progressive with a variable course. Patients with HIV-related dementia are often acutely aware of their
deterioration, which may lead to an adjustment disorder with profound fear, anxiety or depression.

HIV associated dementia HIV directly invades the brain tissue shortly after infection-was the most frequently
seen single neurologic complication of AIDS before the HAART era in the U.S.
Drug withdrawal

Clinical Manifestations of Dementia

Early manifestations:
Memory loss, Impaired concentration
Depressed mood, Apathy
Motor weakness, Tremor, poor handwriting
Irritability, Agitation
Personality change
Late manifestations:
Global Cognitive Dysfunction
Amnesiac features
Organic Hallucinations
Vegetative state
Mutism, Aphasia, Spasticity, Ataxia
Screening tool for Dementia
Thorough physical examination to determine potential reversible causes:
Toxoplasmosis, Cryptococcoma, MAI, Lymphoma, CMV ventriculitis or Encephalitis, or Meningitis
associated with Syphilis, TB, or Cryptococcus Neoformans.
Neurologic Exam
CT scan or MRI to check for Cortical Atrophy, Ventricular Enlargement, or Masses
Labs: Thyroid function, RPR, LFTs, Bio-chemistry, Haemogram
Nursing Interventions
Educate patient and family.
Teach behavioural management strategies so patient with early manifestations of dementia can live
with some degree of independence, yet be safe in the home environment. (E.g. establishing a daily
routine and sticking to it).
Memory aids such as Notes, Calendars, Alarm Clocks, etc

Referral to Home care Agency, may need 24 hour supervision
Because disease is frightening and may be progressive, the patient and family need assistance to plan
for the future.
Pharmacologic: ART, SSRI for Depression, Anti-psychotics for agitation and Hallucinations


Characterized by disturbance of consciousness and a change in cognition that develops over a period of
time and is caused by the direct physiologic consequences of a medical condition. Delirium is the most
common neuron-psychiatric complication in hospitalised AIDS patients.
Risk factors for Delirium in AIDS patients:
Advanced stage of immuno-suppression
History of OIs, especially affecting CNS
Substance use
Head or brain injury
Episodes of delirium or dementia

Aetiology May be single or multiple

Infectious: Cryptococcal or Toxoplasmosis Encephalitis

Sudden change in mental status
Level of alertness may vary from agitation to lethargy, stupor or coma. Patients are usually drowsy and
may require repeated explanations from caregivers and examiners. Early signs of delirium may be
inaccurately attributed to anxiety.
Abrupt disturbances in sleep patterns or changes in level of activity should raise suspicion.
Interview caregiver and observe patient to assess functional status

Clinical Manifestations
Impaired memory, orientation: difficulty with abstractions, difficulty with sequential thinking, impaired
temporal memory, impaired judgment
Disturbances in thought and language with decreased verbal frequency
Disturbances in perception: visual hallucinations, paranoid delusions
Disturbances in psychomotor function: hypoactive, hyperactive or mixed
Disturbances in sleep-wake cycle with daytime lethargy, night time agitation
Affective lability: rapidly changes from one emotional state to another
Neurologic abnormalities: Tremors, Myoclonus, Nystagmus, Ataxia, Cranial Nerve Palsies, and Cerebellar

Nursing Interventions
Address underlying condition such as metabolic abnormalities, sepsis, anaemia, CNS infections and
Malignancies, Antiretroviral therapy, Opioids, and Illicit substance use
Provide safe and consistent environment and increase supervision of patient as indicated
Communicate in clear simple terms to avoid misconceptions
Educate patient and family regarding care and procedures, medications, expected outcomes, and need
to orient patient to person, time, place, and situation
Ensure patients activities of daily living are met

Annexure 23 (a): Diagnosis of HIV Infection in Infants/
Children below 18 months

Diagnosis of HIV status in infants/children is very important in order to plan their care, support and treatment.
HIV DNA-PCR would provide testing for HIV-exposed infants and children < 18 months. Serology for HIV
antibodies, which is the gold standard for diagnosis in adults cannot be used for children below 18 months
due to false positive results because of presence of maternal HIV antibodies in the infants blood which
cross react.
In order to establish if the infant/child has acquired HIV infection, the DNA of the virus has to be detected
in the infants blood through the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). The test specimen for DNA PCR can
be collected in two ways:
1. Dried Blood Spot (DBS): Infant/childs blood is collected on filter paper by heel/finger/ toe prick and
this specimen is sent to the laboratory, where the DNA PCR test is performed.
2. Whole Blood (WB): Infant/childs blood is collected in a microtainer/vacutainer and this specimen is
sent within a few hours to the laboratory where the actual DNA PCR test is performed.
Plan for HIV diagnosis among HIV exposed infants/children below 18 months
In infants between 6 weeks to 6 months of age:
Perform DNA PCR on DBS specimen collected at ICTC
If DNA PCR shows not detected follow up at ICTC
If DNA PCR shows detected refer to ART Centre for testing on WB specimen
Perform DNA PCR on WB specimen at ART Centre
If DNA detected on WB specimen at ART Centre, register and follow up at the ART Centre as per national
paediatric ART guidelines
If DNA not detected on the WB specimen at ART Centre, collect fresh WB specimen
Use the result of this specimen for further management
In infants/children between 6 months to 18 months of age:
Perform antibody test at ICTC
If antibody test is negative, follow up at ICTC.
If antibody test is positive proceed for DNA PCR
Perform DNA PCR on DBS specimen collected at ICTC if antibody test is positive
If DNA PCR not detected on DBS follow up at ICTC
If DNA PCR detected refer to ART Centre
Perform DNA PCR on WB specimen at ART Centre
If DNA detected on WB specimen at ART Centre, register and follow up at the ART Centre as per national
paediatric ART guidelines.
If DNA not detected on the WB specimen at ART Centre, collect fresh WB specimen.
Use the result of this specimen for further management
The HIV DNA-PCR results will be communicated from the reference lab to ICTC/ART collection centre
whichever applicable
Infants/children showing uninfected must continue to be followed up at the ICTC till 18 months as
per algorithm
Ensure definitive diagnosis of all infants/children by antibody tests at 18 months
All 3 antibody tests are to be used at 18 months for confirmatory HIV diagnosis, irrespective of the
first test results

Annexure 23(b) : Specimen Collection (by heel prick) and
handling procedure for HIV DNA PCR testing by
Dried Blood Spot (DBS) sample collection

Pediatric HIV infection is an evolving entity and continues to be a challenge for the medical community. The
standard diagnostic tool for HIV infection in adults, testing for antibodies to HIV antigens, has limited utility
in infants less than 18 months of age because of the transplacental transfer of maternal antibodies. An
essential priority in caring for HIV-infected children is accurate and early diagnosis of HIV.
The diagnosis of HIV in infants under eighteen months of age must therefore be conducted by direct
detection of the virus-specific genetic material. The assay can be conducted successfully on DBS specimens.
Use of DBS facilitates access to DNA PCR testing given its high sample stability and low biohazard, which
facilitate sample handling and transport from the clinic to the laboratory. This sample type, which can be
taken from a heel prick, requires a reasonably small amount of blood and is therefore well suited for routine
testing in infants, where blood volumes are small and blood draws are challenging. The use of DBS with
this assay is a strong advantage and is the preferred method of sample collection.
This describes a procedure for collection, packaging and transport of a dried blood spot (DBS) sample from
an infant below 18 months of age. A correct performance of the DBS collection using the aseptic technique
is critical to ensure the safety of the procedure and to assure the quality of the test results obtained thereof.
An optimal sample collection also contributes significantly to the comfort and satisfaction of the donors thus
encouraging retesting as and when required
Dried blood spots (DBS) should be made only by nursing personnel who have been appropriately trained
in both the making of dried blood spots and in universal blood and fluid precautions

** Plasma Viral Load (PVL): The national programme does recommend routine viral load monitoring as part
of the programme. Viral load measurement is not recommended for decision-making on initiation or regular
monitoring of ART in resource-limited settings (WHO 2006). It may be considered for making diagnosis of
early treatment failure or to assess discordant clinical and CD4 findings in patients suspected of failing ART.
Scheduled follow up during the initial months of ART is necessary to diagnose and efficiently manage acute
adverse events, work with the patient on adherence issues, and diagnose clinical conditions like IRS and
new episodes of OIs.

Estimation of CD4 count for patients receiving ART:

Is recommended at 6 months to document immunological improvement on ART. After initiation of a NVP
based regimen, ALT measurement is recommended in the first month to detect drug-induced Hepatitis. With
an AZT- based regimen, it is important to monitor CBC for earlier detection of Haematological Toxicity. The

prevalence of Lipid abnormalities is significant on ART, particularly if a patient is on d4T, EFV or Lipid PIs.
In these patients and in patients with significant risk factors for Coronary Artery Disease a fasting lipid
profile should be done at 6 months, otherwise yearly estimations suffice. Random Blood sugar (RBS) is
recommended in the baseline screening of all patients to be started on ART, as currently one of the major
causes of morbidity in India is diabetes and hence screening should be done for pre-morbid status.

Annexure 25 : 4 Prong NACO PPTCT Strategies

Prong 1 of the PPTCT Strategy: Primary prevention of HIV infection

This prong focuses on the parents-to-be. HIV infection cannot be passed on to children if their parents are not
infected with HIV. This consists of promoting safer and responsible sexual behaviours which include, where
appropriate, delaying the onset of sexual activity, practising sexual abstinence, reducing the number of sexual
partners and using condoms. The strategies here include condom provision, early diagnosis and treatment of
STIs, HIV counselling and testing , and suitable counselling for the uninfected so that they remain HIV negative.

Facilitator Guide HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses

Page 384 Section Four: Annexure-25
Prong 2 of the PPTCT Strategy: Prevention of unintended pregnancies among HIV-infected women

This prong looks at the family planning needs of the HIV infected women. With appropriate support, women
who are aware of being sero-positive can plan their pregnancy and therefore reduce the possibility of passing
the virusto their future children. They can also take measures to protect their own health. The strategies here
include high-quality reproductive health counselling and providing effective family planning measures such as
effective contraception, and early and safe abortion in case the womandecides to end the pregnancy. At the
ICTC, post-test counselling should cover this information if the client is in a position to absorb it, namely inform
sero-positive clients that they are capable of transmitting the HIV to others including their spouses and in the
case of women, to the children theymight bear. They should be informed that a counselling personnel can
explain to them how to reduce the risk of transmission and invite them to come back for more information
whenever they feel the need.

Section Four: Annexure-25 Page 385
Prong 3 of the PPTCT Strategy: Prevention of HIV transmission from HIV-infected women to their

Specific interventions to reduce transmission from a woman living with HIV to her child include HIV counselling
and testing, ARV prophylaxis and treatment, safe delivery practices, and safer infant feeding practices.
Specifically this involves:
Decreasing viral load Monitoring and treating infections
Supporting optimal nutrition
Avoiding premature rupture of membrane and invasive delivery techniques
Treating infections such as STIs
Promoting safer infant feeding
When an ARV drug is given to prevent transmission from the mother to the infant, it is referred to as ARV
prophylaxis. This is different from ARV treatment for the mother the mother which is used to treat her HIV

Facilitator Guide HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses

Page 386 Section Four: Annexure-25
Prong 4 of the PPTCT Strategy: Provision of care and support to HIV-infected women, their infants and
their families

Medical care and social support are necessary to help the woman living with HIV to address and manage her
worries about her own health and that of her family. If she is assured of receiving adequate care for herself and
her loved ones, she is more likely to undergo HIV testing, and also adhere to the treatment.
The service elements here include prevention and treatment of OIs, ARV treatment, palliative (pain-reducing)
and non-ARV care, nutritional support, reproductive health care and psychosocial support.
Thus, a comprehensive PPTCT programme provides a continuum of care for the mother and the child. The
continuum begins with educating adolescent women about primary prevention of infection and continues
through treatment, care and support to HIV-positive women and families. It ensures that women receive education
and services to reduce the risk of mother-to-child-transmission throughout pregnancy, labour and childbirth,
and infant feeding. It also provides support for both mother and child, especially during the crucial years of
childhood growth and development. This comprehensive approach ultimately provides linkages to existing
community services to address the complex needs and issues involved in HIV prevention, treatment and

Annexure 26 : PPTCT True or False Statements and Answers

1. Pregnancy makes HIV disease worse.

False - Pregnancy does not accelerate the progression of HIV disease.

2. HIV-infected sperm can directly infect the infant even if the mother does not have HIV infection.
False- Although there is HIV in male semen, there is no HIV in the sperm. Therefore, the mother could get
HIV infection from the male semen but the foetus could not get HIV infection from the males sperm. The
foetus can only acquire HIV infection from exposure to the mothers blood or vaginal/cervical secretions
during pregnancy, birth, or breast milk during breast feeding. Remember that about 70% of time, the foetus
will not get HIV infection at all.

3. If a woman is HIV+, there are medications she can take to reduce the likelihood of passing the
virus to her infant
True- If a woman is HIV+, she can be prescribed ART depending on clinical criteria either during her
pregnancy. She should be given ART during labour, and the baby must be given ART within 72 hours of
birth. Details of ART to prevent mother to child transmission will be dealt with in this unit. If she is on ART
and her viral load is suppressed, her risk of transmission is very low, about 1 or 2%

4. If both parents are HIV +, using condoms during pregnancy isnt necessary
False - One partner may transmit a resistant virus to the other through sexual intercourse so it is essential
that the couple practice safe sex with use of condoms.

5. If a woman is HIV positive, all her babies will be HIV-infected because they share the same
False - The mother and baby do not share the same blood. The mothers blood is filtered by the placenta
so the baby gets oxygen and nutrients without exchange of blood. The baby can only become infected if
she/he is exposed to the mothers blood. This may happen from an infection in the placenta, a maternal
abruption or abdominal trauma causing bleeding into the amniotic sac, or during birth. It is also important
to note that even with exposure to the mothers blood during pregnancy and birth, there is only about a
30% chance of the baby becoming infected.

6. Procedures during delivery that may cause exposure of the newborn to maternal body fluids
should be avoided whenever possible
True - This includes artificial rupture of membranes, forceps or vacuum delivery, episiotomy, or vigorous
suctioning of the infant.

7. If an HIV positive woman has a Caesarean section (C/S), her risk of having a baby with HIV
is 0%.
False - Although in some cases, when the womans virus is not suppressed or she has advanced HIV
disease, a C/S may reduce the risk of infection, it will never reduce it to 0%. The actual risk depends on
the severity of disease and the actual viral load. When a woman is on ART and her viral load is fully
suppressed, there does not appear to be an advantage to C/S. Also, there is a higher risk of maternal
infection and mortality with C/s and the higher cost to consider.

8. Giving Nevirapine to babies after they are born is like giving a nurse post-exposure prophylaxis
after a needlestick injury.
True. Giving Nevirapine is like giving PEP to a nurse after a needle stick injury.

Annexure 30 : Ways to Promote ART Adherence in Children

Promoting adherence is multi-faceted and must be a continuous process. This is a task that requires
excellent skills, addressing both the childs needs and issues and those of the caregiver:
The child MUST be involved
Assessment of child & family prior to child commencing ARVs
Assist families in developing routine for ARVs; ARVs should NOT dictate every aspect of daily life
Open, supportive approach
Age-appropriate explanations to child regarding need for medication
Children cope far better when they are able to understand what is happening to them and
have a sense of control
Use child-sensitive, age-appropriate explanations such as you need the medicine to keep
you strong and prevent infections
Continuing support and re-assessment of each child and familys situation
Peer support: Support from other parents and children
A variety of strategies may be used to help encourage the child to take ARVs and to assist and
support the caregiver. Some methods are mentioned below. They could be used one at a time or
in combination:
Trial runs: Finding out the best way that the child would take the medicine
Play therapy:
Having a doll /puppet and showing the child how the doll or the puppet felt better after taking
some medicine
Then asking the child whether they would like to try the same
Sticker charts:
Having a chart with dates mentioned and timing.
Every time the child takes the medicine with no trouble, giving the child a golden star, little
trouble a silver star and lots of trouble, a colour that the child does not like
At the end of the month, telling the child the child would be given some reward if there were
more golden stars on the chart. Rewards cold be simple like taking the child to the park,
giving the child a big hug, or doing something that child likes to do with the parent/caretaker
Art therapy:
Making the child draw out what he or she feels about taking medicines. This could be a
way for the child to express self
Taking medication with parent:
Giving the child the medicine along with the parent
Asking the child to put the medicine in the parent/s mouth and checking whether he/she has
taken it
Then the parent could do the same for the child
Support groups:
Arranging meetings of children taking ART so that they could express their challenges,
how they deal with it etc.

Annexure 31 : WHO Growth Monitoring Charts

Using growth charts Infants and children who are well and healthy should gain weight and length/height.
Infants and children who are growing normally follow a growth curve parallel to one of the standard growth
curves. Weight loss or failure to gain weight can be identified by observing the childs weight over time.
When the growth curve flattens and is no longer parallel to the chart line, this indicates the need for clinical
assessment, management and nutritional intervention and possibly ART.

Facilitator Guide HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses

Page 394 Section Four: Annexure-31
Growth curves are used to follow changes in growth over time for a child thus, looking at trend of weight
is more useful than a single observation. The nurse will take the weight and enter it on the growth chart,
in the ICTC HIV-Exposed Infant/Child Card Using gender appropriate charts (different for girls and boys),

Connect the dots for each visit to obtain a growth curve for the child
Compare the plotted line of the childs growth with the standard curves in the chart
MO to interpret the growth chart and determine course of action:
 Child with growth curves lying between the 3rd and 15th percentile need careful history taking to
detect feeding problems. A physical assessment must be done and appropriate nutritional advice
must be given.
 Child with growth curves less than the 3rd percentile (growth below the bottom most line) need further
investigation and immediate testing for HIV.

Annexure 33: Antiretroviral Therapy For TB Patients

HIV-TB co-infection is one of the most challenging issues in the effort to scale up ART since more than
60% of PLHA develop TB. Patients with TB merit special consideration because the co-management of HIV
and TB is complicated by drug interactions between Rifampicin and NNRTIs and PIs; IRIS; pill burden;
adherence; and drug toxicity. Active TB is the commonest OI among HIV-infected individuals and is also
the leading cause of death in PLHIV.
The management of patients with HIV and TB poses many challenges, including patient acceptance of both
diagnoses. HIV-infected persons with TB often require ART and WHO recommends that ART be given to:

All patients with extra pulmonary TB (stage 4), and all those with pulmonary TB (stage 3) unless CD4
count is >350 cells/mm3
ART reduces the incidence and recurrence of TB, as well as the fatality rates.

Co-trimozaxole prophylaxis should be given to HIVTB patients as per the guidelines.

When to start first-line ART in patients with active TB

If a patient with active TB is diagnosed with HIV and requires ART, the first priority is to start TB treatment in
accordance with the RNTCP guidelines. ART may need to be started later, keeping in mind the pill burden,
time needed for acceptance of the diagnosis, counselling needs, drug interactions, toxicity and IRIS

Initiation of first-line ART in relation to anti-TB Therapy (Based on 2006 WHO Guidelines)

i) Timing of ART initiation is based on clinical judgement, in accordance with other signs of immunodeficiency
and WHO clinical stages. In the case of extrapulmonary TB, ART should be started as soon as TB treatment
is tolerated, irrespective of the CD4 count.
ii) ART should be started as soon as TB treatment is tolerated, particularly in patients with severe

HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses Facilitator Guide

Section Four: Annexure-33 Page 397
iii) EFV-containing regimens include d4T/3TC/EFV and AZT/3TC/EFV.
iv) ART should be started if other non-TB stage 3 or 4 events are present.
v) For some types of TB that generally respond well to anti-TB therapy (i.e. lymph node TB, uncomplicated
pleural effusion), or some cases where uncomplicated pulmonary TB disease is responding well to TB
treatment, consider deferring ART initiation.
vi) Rationale for ART recommendation during TB Treatment:
a) HIV-infected patients with a CD4 count of 200350 cells/mm3 are at an increased risk of developing
active tuberculosis, even in regions with high-baseline TB prevalence.
b) HIV-infected patients with a CD4 count of 200350 cells/mm3 and active tuberculosis are at a greater
risk of AIDS and death than those without TB and with CD4 counts in the same range.
c) In the absence of ART, TB therapy alone does not significantly increase the CD4 cell count. Nor does
it significantly decrease the HIV viral load. Thus, CD4 counts measured during active TB are likely to
reflect the actual level of immunosuppression.
d) The use of HAART in patients with TB can lead to a sustained reduction in the HIV viral load. It can
also facilitate immunological reconstitution, and decrease AIDS-defining illness and mortality. This
benefit is seen across different ranges of CD4 counts.

Annexure 35 : Music Therapy

Music acts like a magic key, to which the most tightly closed heart opens.
Maria Von Trapp

Music therapy is defined as

the systematic application of music by the music therapist
to bring about helpful changes
in the emotional or physical health of the client.

And the ability to experience an altered state of physical arousal and subsequent mood by processing
a progression of musical notes of
varying tone,
rhythm, and
for a pleasing effect.


Biochemical theory
states that music is a sensory stimulus that is
processed though the sense of hearing.

Sound vibrations are chemically changed into nervous impulses that

activate either the sympathetic or
parasympathetic nervous system


Entrainment theory suggests that oscillations produced by music are

received by the human energy field and
various physiological systems entrain with or
match the hertz (oscillation) of the music

Metaphysical theory suggests

that music is divine in nature.

Annexure 36 : National AIDS Control Organization Phase III

HIV/AIDS prevention activities were undertaken immediately after the first case of HIV infection was
detected in Chennai (formally Madras)

A comprehensive National AIDS Control Program (NACP) was initiated in 1992 with the establishment
of the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) within the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare,
Government Of India.

The first phase of the program, NACP I, was implemented by NACO and Dedicated State AIDS Cells
in all the states between 1992-2004.

The second pahse of the program,NACP II saw an expanded response against the HIV/AIDS epidemic
with the establishment of State AIDS Control Societies.This program was implemented between 1999
to 2006

Under NACP III, (2006-2012), the goal is to halt and reverse the epidemic in India over the next five

The goal of NACP II is being achieved through a four pronged strategy :

Prevent infections through saturation of coverage of high-risk groups with targeted interventions (TIs)
and scaled up interventions in the general population.

Provide greater care, support and treatment to larger number of PLHIV.

Strengthen the infrastructure, systems and human resources in prevention, care, support and treatment
programmes at district, state and national levels.

Strengthen the nationwide Strategic Information Management System.

Annexure 40: Ice Breakers & Energizers

Remember these are more fun when the trainers join in!


Everyone in the room shakes everyone elses hand within a strict time limit of one minute. This gets energy
up, and obliges each participant to acknowledge everyone else.

Participants are seated in a circle. The facilitator arranges for the space on their right to remain empty. They
then ask a member of the group to come and sit in the empty space; for example, I would like Lili to come
and sit on my right. Lili moves and there is now a space on the right of another participant. The participant
who is sitting next to the empty space calls the name of someone different to sit on his or her right. Continue
until the entire group has moved once.


The facilitator calls out a characteristic of people in the group, such as having children. All those who have
children should move to one corner of the room. As the facilitator calls out more characteristics, such as
likes football, people with the characteristic move to the indicated space.


Participants sit or stand in a tight circle with one person in the middle. The person in the middle shouts
out the sun shines on... and names a colour or articles of clothing that some in the group possess. For
example, the sun shines on all those wearing blue or the sun shines on all those wearing socks or the
sun shines on all those with brown eyes. All the participants who have that attribute must change places
with one another. The person in the middle tries to take one of their places as they move, so that there
is another person left in the middle without a place. The new person in the middle shouts out the sun
shines on... and names a different colour or type of clothing.

15 Body writing Ask participants to write their name in the air with a part of their body. They may choose
to use an elbow, for example, or a leg. Continue in this way, until everyone has written his or her name
with several body parts.


Draw a line representing the seashore and ask participants to stand behind the line. When the facilitator
shouts Tides out!, everyone jumps forwards over the line. When the leader shouts Tides in!, everyone
jumps backwards over the line. If the facilitator shouts Tides out! twice in a row, participants who move
have to drop out of the game.

The facilitator tells the group that they should follow instructions when the facilitator starts the instruction
by saying Simon says... If the facilitator does not begin the instructions with the words Simon says, then
the group should not follow the instructions! The facilitator begins by saying something like Simon says
clap your hands while clapping their hands. The participants follow. The facilitator speeds up the actions,
always saying Simon says first. After a short while, the Simon says is omitted.

Section Four: Annexure-40 Page 435
Someone makes a sound and everyone else tries to identify it the person who guesses right makes
another sound. Sounds could include animal and bird noises, machines, vehicles or food preparation.


Ask each participant to pull a coin out of their purse and look at the year on the coin. Give them one minute
to think about where they were and what significant event took place during that year. Ask few or all
participants (depending on time) to share their memories in one or two sentences.


To help people to reflect on the activities of the day, make a ball out of paper and ask the group to throw
the ball to each other in turn. When they have the ball, participants can say one thing they thought about
the day.


At the end of a workshop, ask participants to stick a piece of paper on their backs. Each participant then
writes something they like, admire or appreciate about that person on the paper on their backs. When they
have all finished, participants can take their papers home with them as a reminder


Material Needed: Any object eg Book/ Hand bag/Vase etc. (Treasure)
A thin dupatta to blind fold

Ask for a participant to volunteer, without telling the purpose of the game ( Volunteer should trust the
Take her out of the room and blindfold her.
In the meantime, come back and ask the other participants to rearrange the furniture in the room to
create enough space and to make the game more interesting.
Bring the volunteer back in the room, make her feel the treasure and put it at some accessible location
in the room.
Instruct her to hunt for it in the room.
Do not give any explicit instructions to the volunteer or the group on whether she can seek the help
from the group or whether the group can guide her.
Make sure that the volunteer does not hurt herself while hunting for the treasure; If you observe that
the volunteer is finding it difficult to locate the treasure ,keep it at a more convenient location.
Observe the group behavior ie whether they remain silent or assist the volunteer in locating the treasure
(by providing her appropriate directions) - both while you are present in the room or when you move
out; do they wait for instructions from you to guide the volunteer or do they themselves take the
Ultimately, when the volunteer is able to successfully hunt for treasure, congratulate her on her efforts
and remove the blindfold.

13. PAPER DANCE (Achieving Maximum with Minimum resources)

Resources Needed: Double page or half page same size old news papers, (depending upon the number
of participants examples for 30 participants take 15 papers).

Make the group count 1,2,1,2
Divide all the 1s and 2s in two groups and pair them

Facilitator Guide HIV/AIDS and ART Training for Nurses

Page 436 Section Four: Annexure-40
Distribute one paper to each pair and make them stand comfortably and dance on the paper. Instruct
them to make sure that their feet remain inside the paper only.
After few minutes, ask them to fold the paper in half and dance, with their feet remaining inside the
Ask the participants to repeat the process, as many times as they can, by folding the paper half every
time (some would be able to do it by folding the paper 5 or 6 times, where as some would stop at 3
or 4 times only)
In the end, ask the participants:
Q 1 qualities needed to do this exercise
Q 2 their feelings during the excercise, and write them on the flip chart
Q 3 What made some of the pairs carried on with the exercise for long?
Write their responses on a flip chart.

The following can be carried out to music, with brief stops in the music to signal that the movement/role
should change.
Divide the participants into pairs, one person in the front and the other person behind. Get the person
at the back to rub the shoulders of the person in front. The pair turns around and exchange roles.
Get participants of the same size and preferably same gender, to stand back to back. Each person
drops her/his head on the other persons shoulder and relaxes.
Participants can form a semi-circle with the person at the far end bending forwards from the waist,
hands forward and inhaling, and exhaling while coming up, everyone follows suit.
Everyone does spot jogging while facing her/his partner.
Get a small group to stand on either side of a person. The person in the middle gets gently pushed
from one group to another. The person in the middle should not resist or move voluntarily, but just relax
and let others take care of her/him.
