Hi,
She needs to eat nutritious food with high protein contents like egg, meat and milk every day.
Co-trimoxazole prophylaxis is given for all patients whose CD4 count is less than 400.
Make sure she takes a capsule of multivitamin every day.
Yes, you can help your friend. Giving her moral support and being with her is a great help from your side.
