My five year old daughter is HIV positive and about to enter kindergarten. Do I need to tell her school about her illness. She is asymtomatic except for a large tummy (liver). Tcell count is 800.
Response from Dr. Sullivan
You should inform the school administrator so that your daughters teacher and the school nurse are aware of her condition to ensure that your daughter receives the best care during the periods when she is at school.JLS.
