Antiretroviral agents are not yet considered essential medications by international public health experts and are not widely used in the poor countries with high HIV prevalence.  With the collaboration of Haitian CHWs experienced in the delivery of home-based and directly observed treatment for TB, an AIDS-prevention project was expanded to deliver HAART to a subset of HIV patients deemed most likely to benefit. The study concludes that directly observed therapy (DOT) with HAART can be delivered effectively in poor settings if there is an uninterrupted supply of high-quality drugs.
