Antiretroviral Cohort Adverse Event Monitoring in KwaZulu-Natal

The high burden of HIV and the rapid scale up of ARV treatment program in KwaZulu-Natal provided a unique opportunity to establish a cohort event monitoring system at selected sites within the province. The aim of the cohort event monitoring study was to implement and establish a system of active surveillance that would have resulted in the timely identification, management, and prevention of adverse events to ART.

The goal of the Antiretroviral Cohort Adverse Event Monitoring programme in KwaZulu-Natal (ACADEMIK) was to establish an AE surveillance system that would support patient safety, patient adherence to lifelong ART, and enhance quality of patient care in the ARV treatment programme in the province.
