At Topmed, we have been covering HIV/AIDS as a real benefit, including the provision of anti-retroviral treatment, (ART) since the inception of ART. The Topmed HIV/ AIDS Programme goes beyond registering a condition and allocating benefits and is designed to address the needs of patients and families affected by HIV and AIDS.
Managed by our Dedicated Professional Nurses, together with a dedicated HIV/AIDS Programme Co-ordinator, the Topmed programme is a fully confidential programme that covers issues such as:
- Pre-testing and pre-treatment cancelling and planning
- Help in choosing the treatment that suits your needs
- Education regarding the prevention of transmission, as well as healthcare and nutritional guidance
- Monitoring of side effects and response to treatment to make sure your medication is working for you
- Encouragement of adherence and compliance with the programme and medication
- Liaison with your medical provider when necessary and at your request
- Medication benefits including anti-retroviral
- Consultation and diagnostic benefits
- Prevention of mother to child transmission
- Occupation injury and exposure to HIV positive blood e.g. sexual assault
- Management of opportunistic infections
- Hospice care
