The study investigated factors that facilitate or constrain adherence to ART for people on treatment at one public facility and one private facility in Uganda. The study used both quantitative and qualitative methods. These two approaches complemented each other. This research is part of a multi-country study carried out in Uganda, Tanzania and Botswana.
Data were collected at three different levels: individual, community and facility levels. The research team, comprising the principal investigator, three research associates and one data collector, collected data through interviews and observations, with the use of tape recorders. Data were collected during May and June 2005.
