Tanzania has a decentralised program for HIV Care services. An electronic patient record system has been developed for patient monitoring in clinics to enable accurate, anonymous information to be collated and analysed at the national level. This write-up, represents recent analysis of the anonymised data from 348 care and treatment clinics (CTC) across Tanzania assessing adults patients before ART initiation. Of importance to this gathering is the provision of quick results for policy makers and implementers to use in their decision making, but also demonstrate how a national electronic database can be interrogated and analysed for important markers of progress.
