The HIV clinical case studies contain original patient case studies describing clinical observations related to HIV Care and treatment in resource-limited settings. They provide comprehensive, up-to-date information on HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, and policy.
The cases are based on real-life experiences of TB clients at the IDI clinic. They are designed to provide skills in problem solving to successfully manage an active TB case as well as latent TB infections. They provide guidance and the necessary reference material to gain experience in TB case management.
These cases are designed to capture patient history, symptoms, and the physical findings at examination. However, for a definitive diagnosis to be made, laboratory tests must demonstrate the malaria parasites or their components.These case studies present management of uncomplicated and complicated malaria.
NCDs refer to chronic diseases which last for long periods of time and progress slowly.

The adverse effects of antibiotic overuse and misuse have community wide implications that go beyond the patient and outside of the facility. The primary goal of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP), (also known as Antibiotic Management Program) is to raise awareness among health care workers about the escalating problem of Antimicrobial Resistance in healthcare and community settings. The learning resources and activities under this section are aimed at training and sensitizing health workers on ASP and include; optimal dosage protocols, prescription guidelines, relevant reports, real life and hypothetical case studies.
