CDC Blog Post Examines Lessons Learned From Scale-Up Of Antiretroviral Therapy In Mozambique

CDC’s “Our Global Voices”: Lessons Learned from Scaling up HIV Treatment in Mozambique
This blog post discusses findings from a CDC study published in the October 2016 issue of the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes (JAIDS) examining the scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in Mozambique. The analysis “revealed fewer people are dying from HIV in recent years, likely due to more patients starting treatment at earlier disease stages. The analysis also found that people who more recently began ART were less likely to remain engaged in HIV treatment and care over time. The analysis highlights participation in community ART support groups (CASGs) … as an effective strategy to significantly reduce loss to follow up” (9/16).
