THIS is a 49-year old female client at Mthimba, with one of our care workers checking she is taking her medication. She was diagnosed HIV-positive in 2010 and she was taking well her treatment, but in 2015 she defaulted the treatment because she saw that is doing ok.
She started getting weak in June 2016 and we referred her to the clinic, and they referred her to the hospital and she was admitted for 2 months and two weeks. We found her weak and she is not eating well and she vomits. Now she has TB (MDR). She is getting injection every day for 12 months. ACTION: We managed to give her pampers, gloves, mask, linen saver and rub-rub. We advised her to drink the treatment.
