Presentations at GHC 2009

During the Global Health Council's 2009 Conference, INRUD-IAA had a full panel presenting on Measuring Adherence to Antiretroviral Therapy. The presenters discussed:

  • How to use routine pharmacy and clinic data to measure basic adherence rates to antiretroviral therapy (ART) in a wide variety of resource-poor settings and show that the measures identify facilities that are doing well and less well (East Africa);
  • The predictive validity of indicators of ART adherence developed by the International Network for the Rational Use of Drugs Initiative on Adherence to Antiretrovirals (INRUD-IAA) calculated from routine data (East Africa);
  • How mobile phone technology can be used as a tool in promoting and monitoring adherence to antiretrovirals in previously non adherent patients (Sagamu, Ogun State, Nigeria);
  • System - and patient-related factors that may influence adherence to ART and the limited scope of choice for patients (East Africa).
