n CME : Your SA Journal of CPD - Prevention and treatment of malaria in HIV-infected patients




Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection affects the clinical presentation, severity and response to treatment of malaria cases, and malaria may affect the progression and transmission of HIV. In addition, there are potential interactions between drugs used for the treatment and prevention of malaria and antiretroviral therapy. The clinical impact of these interactions varies depending on the intensity of malaria transmission in the area (and consequent level of host immunity) and the individual affected (e.g. adult, child or pregnant woman).
