In palliative care for PLHIV, the aim is to manage symptoms arising from:

  • AIDS itself and associated opportunistic infections, like headaches and other pains, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, weight loss, anxiety, fatigue, depression, skin and mouth problems, neurological disorders, etc.
  • the side-effects of antiretroviral drugs to treat HIV disease and chemoprophylactic drugs to treat opportunistic infections.
