BackgroundThe success of any antiretroviral therapy programme is highly dependent on the retention of the patients in care. However, high rates of loss to follow up of patients in care is a threat to the success of the programme.
MethodsPhone interviews were conducted for these patients to ascertain predictors and reasons for being lost to follow.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
