Adherence Guidelines for HIV, TB and NCDS: Standard Operating Procedures - 2020
The 2020 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the “Minimum package of interventions to support linkage to care, adherence and retention in care” included in this booklet, have revised the 2016 Adherence Guidelines for Chronic Diseases (HIV, TB, and NCDs) to align with the 2019 ART Clinical Guidelines for the Management of HIV in Adults, Pregnancy, Adolescents, Children, Infants and Neonates. The aim of the SOPs is to enable delivery of effective differentiated care to patients within the health care system.
This booklet is produced in pocket format so that healthcare workers and non-clinicians can refer to it as and when they need to; to ensure all necessary procedures and steps are followed to encourage linkage to care, adherence to treatment and retention in care of patients with chronic conditions. The SOPs booklet should be used in conjunction with the adherence education flip file, adherence pamphlet; and participant guide as reference.
