Reassessment of the Nutritional Status in Thai Orphans Living With HIV in a Family Style Community
Reassessment of the Nutritional Status in Thai Orphans Living With HIV in a Family Style Community: 6 Months After Nutrition Care Support by the Thai-Australian Collaboration HIV-Nutrition (TACHIN) Project

To reassess nutritional status of HIV-infected Thai children living in the family style community after receiving nutrition support program for 6 months.

The first assessment indicated that improving dietary intake, either energy or micronutrient intakes, to meet the recommended for HIV-infected children (CLHIV) would be able to improve growth of these children. We implemented the nutrition support program through the two strategies aiming to increase dietary intake for all children to meet the current World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations which the recommended energy requirements are increased by10% for asymptomatic CLHIV and increased by 20 to 50% for children who require catch up growth or experiencing opportunistic infections. The nutrition support program composed two strategies. Firstly is providing nutrition education to caregivers and also children. Secondly, revision food menus by caregivers with assisting from the nutritionists of the project. After this program have been implemented for 6 months, reassessment is needed to evaluate the changes of nutritional status and health outcomes in this children aiming to further providing support and applying to other settings.
