Patient treatment cards
The patient treatment cards (one for each of the four first-line regimens) are used by health care workers when informing and educating patients in what it means to take ART—when and how to take their pills, how to manage mild side effects and when to seek care from the facility. In addition, prevention interventions such as safer sex are addressed. They are often sent home with the patient, and are for country adaptation and translation into local language.
