ART Retention Webinar

Join MEASURE Evaluation on March 30, 2017 at 10am EDT for a one-hour webinar on using routine data to improve antiretroviral therapy (ART) retention.

The last 90 of the ambitious 90-90-90 goals relies on retention in care to guarantee that people living with HIV are receiving ART and required support services, so they can achieve viral suppression through long-term, consistent use of ART. However, practitioners in all facets of HIV programming are well aware of the challenge of retaining patients on ART in low-resource settings. The World Health Organization recommends the use of data from routine health information systems to improve ART retention, but what interventions exist that increase retention through use of already available facility data?

In this webinar, presenters will discuss findings from a literature review, online survey, and key informant interviews conducted by MEASURE Evaluation between December 2015 and October 2016 to better document how practitioners are currently using available data to retain HIV-positive patients in care and treatment.

We encourage you to attend the webinar and share your own experiences and thoughts on what we can do to maximize the use of facility data to improve ART retention and reach 90-90-90.
