Study subjects with NCD risks or disease at enrollment. Each of these subjects will have a Referral for NCD care
Behavioral: Referral for NCD care
Subjects in the NCD Risks group not already receiving care for the condition will be referred to a primary health clinic for care.
No NCD Risks
Study subjects without NCD risks or disease at enrollment.
- NCDs and NCD risk factors in the study population by time on ART [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The outcomes for primary objective 1 will be NCDs and NCD risk factors in the study population by time on ART, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory conditions, hypertension, obesity, and behavioral risks such as smoking and alcohol use.
- HIV treatment outcomes [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The outcomes for primary objective 2 will be HIV treatment outcomes, including all-cause mortality, loss to follow up (defined as having missed a scheduled medical or ART pick up visit by >90 days), attrition from ART care (defined as mortality or loss to follow up), viral suppression (defined as <400 copies/ml), physical functioning (as assessed by questionnaire) and economic productivity (also as assessed by questionnaire).
- Uptake of NCD care [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Uptake of non-communicable disease (NCD) care, defined as a patient newly diagnosed with an NCD or serious risk factor and referred for care who enroll for care at the study site or another clinic
- Changes in NCD risks or prevalence [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Changes in tests results or self-reported risks post-referral for those obtaining NCD care, defined by screening test results or questionnaire responses six months after referral to care
