In 2004, the government of Zimbabwe began a national program to provide antiretroviral treatment (ART) to people living with HIV/AIDS. With an expanding program, it became clear that there was an urgent need to develop standardized tools to strengthen program management at all levels. In response, Zimbabwe's Ministry of Health and Child Welfare, in partnership with PEPFAR, developed paper-based national monitoring tools for the ART program.
The goals of this effort are to standardize indicators for service providers, strengthen national data collection and analysis, improve reporting systems, monitor scale-up of ART services delivery, and improve logistics planning for HIV/AIDS commodities. The standardized, easy-to-use monitoring tools represent a major step forward in the scale-up of ART.
