2016. Phasing Out Stavudine-Containing Regimens in the Ethiopian ART Program: The Role of Pharmaceutical Information for Decision Making. Submitted to the US Agency for International Development by the Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program. Arlington, VA: Management Sciences for Health.
As of September 2014, Ethiopia decreased the proportion of patients on stavudine-based regimens to 0.02% after a successful program to switch regimens without incidences of treatment disruptions and waste. This phaseout required well-coordinated transition plans that engaged multiple stakeholders. The program used nationally aggregated dispensing information to monitor performance and guide actions.
