Barker PM, McCannon J, Venter WDF, Mmbara NW. Managing HIV as a chronic disease: Using interactive data collection to improve clinical care. The Southern African Journal of HIV Medicine. 2004 Nov:7-11.
As South Africa and the rest of the developing world respond to the AIDS crisis, a critical task will be to develop scalable systems for sustainable and effective delivery of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in a variety of resource-restricted settings. The authors consider how ARV allows us to manage HIV/AIDS as a chronic disease, and the data systems that are required to support this approach to therapy.
