Monitoring the scale-up of antiretroviral therapy programmes: methods to estimate coverage


, : Monitoring the scale-up of antiretroviral therapy programmes: methods to estimate coverage. Bulletin of the World Health Organization 84(2): 145-150

This paper reviews the data sources and methods used to estimate the number of people on, and coverage of, antiretroviral therapy (ART) programmes in low- and middle-income countries and to monitor the progress towards the "3 by 5" target set by WHO and UNAIDS. We include a review of the data sources used to estimate the coverage of ART programmes as well as the efforts made to avoid double counting and over-reporting.
