Lablite is an implementation project investigating strategies to roll out HIV treatment safely and cost-effectively in real-life settings in sub-Saharan Africa. The project is working closely with ministries of Health in 3 countries in Africa (Malawi, Zimbabwe and Uganda), and has the overall aim of evaluating rolling-out of antiretroviral therapy (ART) to smaller health centres, nearer to where people live, using a clinically-driven monitoring approach. It aims to inform national and international policy on how best to use the limited funds available to increase coverage of HIV treatment.
- A situation analysis to map what is happening on the ground
- A demonstration project to show how decentralised delivery of HIV treatment would work in lower level health centres with little or no laboratory facilities
- Health economics and modelling work to assess the economic consequences of different HIV programmes
