Presentation synopsis:

Monitoring the care continuum: The impact of definitions and methodology on progress

Comparisons of the cascade between countries, over time and between sub-populations are illuminating in understanding the obstacles to universal ART coverage. However, variations in methodology and data sources limit the comparability of data. Accurate and reproducible measurement of the cascade will be necessary to assess progress in regard to stated goals and to successfully develop, implement and evaluate interventions to improve the cascade. As interim goals are reached, relatively smaller changes in ART coverage over time and between subpopulations become more important and methodology becomes increasingly critical.

This presentation will review the ways in which the understanding  and measurement of the cascade has evolved and possible frameworks for future consistency and comparability.
