To ensure continuity in HIV care continuum and support local health systems, we integrated resources of two community health clinics in Chennai and Nellore. Following a nationwide lockdown from 23rd March 2020, registered PLHIV/TB were contacted by counselors to enquire about their well-being and availability of ART/ATT.
Outpatient Service And Web Consultation
Two clinicians have been stationed to screen asymptomatic individuals, including frontline workers. Another two clinicians follow-up on contact-tracing with tele surveys. Three laboratory technicians work to collect nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs from homes/hospitals for screening (E gene) and confirmatory (RdRp) RT-PCR under BSL-III. Data is captured via cloud-based HIS. Real-time COVID-19 surveillance reports are then shared with the Directorate of Public Health and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
App Based Support: For regular, online consultations, you can book appointments using our app, Medics Care.
Referrals are made to Government and Private Hospitals for clinical care of persons who test positive for COVID-19
