English: PDF [2.4MB]


This document was created to build capacity of healthcare workers in Sub-Saharan Africa to integrate nutrition interventions into HIV care and treatment services. Inadequate food is a problem for many people living with HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa, as HIV causes or exacerbates malnutrition and food insecurity, and malnutrition and food insecurity limit capacity to cope with the disease and its impacts. The training manual totals 379 pages, covering basic information about HIV/AIDS and nutrition along with advice on nutritional management of HIV-related symptoms, nutritional effects of antiretrovirals, infant feeding, and pediatric nutritional needs.
