Antiretroviral treatment coverage

What does it mean ?

This indicator refers to the percentage of children and adults currently receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART) at the end of the reporting period among the number of those who are living with HIV in the same period. The World Health Organization recommends that all people living with HIV should receive treatment.

Why does it matter ?

This indicator shows the progress of providing anti-retroviral therapy to all people living with HIV. It has been shown that ART reduces morbidity and mortality that is related to HIV among those living with the virus and stops onward transmission of the virus. It has also been shown that early initiation of ART can improve treatment outcomes and save lives, regardless of a person's CD4 cell count. CD4 refers to the white blood cells in the body that are an important part of the immune system’s response to infections. This indicator helps monitor the second 90 of the UNAIDS 90-90-90 target: that 90% of the people who know their HIV-positive status will be on ART by 2020. It is also part of the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health (2016-2030) under Survive: End preventable deaths.

How is it collected ?

Two pieces of information are needed: 1) number of adults and children receiving ART at the end of the reporting period, and 2) estimated overall number of people living with HIV in the same period. The first is collected by triangulating programme data with national procurement and drug monitoring systems. Numbers should be adjusted as appropriate. Estimates of coverage of ART from surveys can also be used for information or validation. The second is generated from a modelling software package like Spectrum. The indicator is calculated by dividing the first piece of information by the second.

More about indicator, sources and calculations

More about indicator and sources

2020 Fast-Track commitments and expanded targets to end AIDS. This Reduce the number of people newly infected with HIV to fewer than 500 000 globally by 2020.

Calculating population level indicators requires estimating the total number of people eligible for the service. UNAIDS recommends that countries use the Spectrum computer package to calculate such denominators needed for Global AIDS Monitoring reporting.

The original source states that estimates do not include children for the following countries: Comoros and Tunisia.

More information on calculations

Where data are available, this indicator should include people on antiretroviral therapy in the private sector and public sector. It does not include antiretroviral medicines taken solely for preventing mother-to-child transmission and post-exposure prophylaxis. But it does include pregnant women living with HIV who are receiving lifelong antiretroviral therapy. Starting in 2018, countries have the option to develop this indicator into broad groups of age and sex disaggregation using the Spectrum, the software used to produce the estimates is Spectrum. The UNAIDS Reference Group on Estimates, Modelling and Projections provides technical guidance on the development of the HIV component of the software (www.epidem.org).
