Re: [pronut-hiv] Advice on developing STANDARD Nutrition Guidelines for PLWHA (11)

Dear Daisy and others

Many guidelines mentioned in this discussion are guidelines that are developed for health workers.

For SAfAIDS, in ZImbabwe, I wrote guidelines on nutrition and HIV/AIDS for use in the home /home care setting. The content is based mainly on the FAO/WHO guidelines, but more practical, shorter and using simpler language. I also wrote a series of fact sheets to accompany this booklet for health workers. I have not seen the final version, but you could contact SAfAIDS for this publication.

If you, or others, fail to get a copy I could send you the draft.

Kind regards

Marlou Bijlsma

Dear Nutritionists,

A lot has been written on Nutrition and HIV/AIDS. However, I wanted some
advice on how I can come up with standard nutrition guidelines for PLWHA,
which I intend to submit/recommend to my government as soon as possible.
Apparently our Ministry of Health has not yet developed these as yet.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
