Cognitive Support Increase CD4 Level on Patient with HIV at Kota Kediri
Methods: This was quasy experiment research with posttest group design. Population were all people living with HIV at Kota Kediri. Samples were 20 respondents who meet the criteria, divided into two groups, intervention and control. The independent variable was cognitive support, while dependent variable was CD4 level of people living with HIV. Blood samples were collected to examine CD4 level. Data were then analyzed by using Anova test and T-test.
Results: Results indicated that the cognitive supports had an effect in increasing the levels of absolute CD4 and CD4 percentage of people living with HIV at a signifi cance value of 0.003. However, there was no signifi cant difference between the control groups taking ARV regularly and irregularly.
Conclusion: The provision of cognitive support was capable to stimulate the immune system by increasing T lymphocytes that have CD4 molecular markers. Thus, an increase in the levels of CD4 is expected to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV.
