5 Treatment sitesBeginning May 2004, Ministry of Health drew up a list of 91 sites that would initiate the provision of Anti-retroviral Therapy (ART) to cover 44,000 patients by end of 2005.This was followed by the development of Guidelines, Training materials, Assessment Accreditation Tool and Monitoring and Evaluation framework
