Step 10Additional considerations for children on antiretroviral treatment

If the child is on ART, then ask:
  1. Has there been any change in eating patterns or appetite since the last visit?
  2. Has the child vomited? If yes, has there been any fast breathing/fever? – see below
  3. Since the last visit has the child been taking any other medicines from a doctor/pharmacy/programmes, or from other sources including traditional medicines?
  4. Have you noticed any change in body shape or appearance of the child?
