Namibia has a strong foundation for implementing the treat all guidelines and reaching the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets
Brief highlights baseline data collected as part of a larger study assessing the impact of implementing the treat-all guidelines on key treatment and health system outcomes. The baseline data provide a snapshot of ART services delivered by health facilities in northern Namibia during the year prior to the rollout of the treat all guidelines. We also examine ART service outcomes, including 12-month ART patient retention, viral load (VL) testing, and viral suppression, to determine the effects of service decentralization during the year preceding the national roll-out of Namibia’s treat all recommendations.
