Remote sensing of HIV care programmes using centrally collected laboratory results; Can we monitor ART programme effectiveness?

This paper describes a population level monitoring system of patients on antiretroviral therapy using centrally collected laboratory data.   We demonstrate an analogous process of remote sensing using a large set of laboratory results and illustrate the tremendous density of information stored.   We moved from an individual to a community view of ART rollout which is similar to the earth and biological sciences where remote sensing is used once the spatial scale of the investigation is too large to be done at ground level.
