As AIDS develops, the client may experience neurocognitive disorders, and these are collectively known as HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND). When HIV cells infect the brain they secrete neurotoxins and the client may begin to experience cognitive impairment with motor dysfunction, speech problems and behavioral change. Healing can also be delayed due to a body's lack of response to pathogens. For example, patients who are HIV-positive with AIDS experience compromised immunity because they have low .

  AIDS is diagnosed in HIV-seropositive patients who have had a CD4 cell count of less than cells per mm 3 ( × 10 9 per L) or at least one AIDS-defining illness, such as Pneumocystis.   In the CIPRA-SA trial (July 3, p 33),1 Ian Sanne and colleagues compared the outcomes of nurse-monitored patients with those of doctor-monitored patients in an antiretroviral treatment (ART) programme in South Africa, and concluded that the outcomes of ART services provided by nurses were non-inferior to those provided by doctors.

First, in samples of patients with SMI during the s and early s using convenience samples, estimations of HIV prevalence ranged from 1%–23% 12–16 Prevalence estimates observed from these studies vary a great deal mainly due to methodological differences related to sampling frames, particularly the reliance on convenience samples.

Health-related quality of life and depression/anxiety were also measured. Indication of NCI using the MoCA was more prevalent compared to the 3-item.

It is vital that HIV counselling should have these dual aims. Sub-Saharan Africa is the world's most severely affected region by HIV/AIDS, making up 67% of all people living with HIV/AIDS, and 72% of AIDS-related deaths in (UNAIDS, ).
