Study Finds Non-Physicians Strongly Agree With Physicians About When to Start ARVs

August 21, 2009

A Human Resources for Health study of non-physician clinicians in Uganda found that "both nurses and clinical officers demonstrated strong agreement with physicians in deciding whether to initiate antiretroviral therapy in the HIV patient," which could "lead to immediate benefits with respect to antiretroviral therapy scale-up and decentralization to rural areas." The researchers recommend further study and that policy makers "more carefully explore task-shifting as a shorter-term response to addressing the human resource crisis in HIV care and treatment" (Vasan et al., 8/20).
