Tool to Assess Site Readiness for Initiating Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) or Capacity for Existing ART Sites

This tool was designed to provide sites and programs with a set of criteria to assess a site’s readiness to implement ART or the current capacity and needs of an existing program, and to identify key areas that need strengthening. This tool can provide a rapid baseline assessment for sites planning implementation of an HIV treatment program, or be used to assess needs for programs which have already started ART. The tool can also be used by programs to continually reassess site capacity and ongoing strengthening needs over time.
