SPC supports 13 PICTs on Patient Monitoring System for HIV Care and ART

 With increasing access of Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) to antiretroviral therapy (ART), the capacity of PICTs to provide and sustain an effective long-term HIV care with ART and prevention is critical. This requires an effective monitoring system integrated with clinical care, treatment, prevention and support services.  


To address this need, a regional training workshop on patient monitoring system for HIV care and ART was conducted on 18 to 22 July 2011 at Novotel Nadi in Fiji. It was organized by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), and supported through the Global Fund financed Multi-country Western Pacific Round 7 HIV Grant.

The training workshop had the following objectives:

  • Provide participants with the essential tools to establish patient monitoring system for HIV care and ART in their respective countries;
  • Utilize the data collected for patient monitoring and management at the health care facility level, and program monitoring at national, regional and international levels; and
  • Explore opportunities to strengthen the HIV care and ART program through linkage and/or integration with surveillance system, existing health services, prevention interventions and other support services.
