2014-08-27 03:18:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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

Description

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infection by a variety of fungi, usually through four possible mechanisms: superficial infection producing conjunctivitis, keratitis, or lacrimal obstruction; extension of infection from neighboring structures - skin, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx; direct introduction during surgery or accidental penetrating trauma; or via the blood or lymphatic routes in patients with underlying mycoses.

A nontuberculous infection when occurring in humans. It is characterized by pulmonary disease, lymphadenitis in children, and systemic disease in AIDS patients. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection of birds and swine results in tuberculosis.

Infection involving the tissues or organs in the PELVIS.

Infection in humans and animals caused by fungi in the class Zygomycetes. It includes MUCORMYCOSIS and entomophthoramycosis. The latter is a tropical infection of subcutaneous tissue or paranasal sinuses caused by fungi in the order Entomophthorales. Phycomycosis, closely related to zygomycosis, describes infection with members of Phycomycetes, an obsolete classification.

An infection at a specific location that may spread to another region of the body.
