Advanced HIV Disease online course

Advanced HIV Disease (AHD) Online Course

Advanced HIV Disease (AHD) is defined as the presence of a CD4 cell count <100 (SAHIVCS Cryptococcal Meningitis update 2019) - 200cells/ mm3 or a WHO clinical stage 3 or 4 event, for adults, adolescents, and children ≥5 years old. This results in a high risk of mortality and morbidity, which is worse, the lower the CD4 count.  On initiating ART, there is less robust CD4 recovery. Finally, there is a high risk of opportunistic infections (OIs).
All children < 5 years old with HIV infection are considered as having advanced HIV disease.
