- As HIV treatment programs in sub-Saharan Africa mature, there are rising concerns about the long-term sustainability and quality
of these programs. Increasing levels of HIV drug resistance have been measured in sub-Saharan Africa, and could jeopardize
long-term treatment success.
This thesis presents the results of prospective cohort studies in adults and children, assessing the quality of HIV treatment programmes and the emergence of HIV drug resistance in sub-Saharan Africa.
