Expanding access to HIV/AIDS treatment: operational research to scale up antiretroviral treatment in the South-East Asia Region
AbstractTo date, evidence about the success of HIV/AIDS treatment is available mostly from industrialized countries and more recently from Brazil, Thailand and some sites in Africa. In South-East Asia, a nearly 10-fold scale-up is required to close the treatment gap, however, evidence base on how to scale-up is unavailable. The urgency for closing the treatment gap calls for a "learning by doing" approach. As ART programmes are accelerated, several questions are likely to emerge--Is the programme working? How can we make it more efficient? What can we do to increase access? Is the health sector burdened or strengthened by treatment activities? Prioritizing research questions is an important first step towards generating relevant strategic information for guiding ART scale-up.
