As antiretroviral (ARV) therapy becomes more widely available in Thailand, it is necessary to have a better understanding of operational issues related to expansion of existing programs.

The ultimate aim of the study is to make recommendations for action that will improve the quality of ARV services that clients receive and to enhance their adherence to highly active antiretroviral therapy
