ABSTRACT
The article discusses the free antiretroviral therapy (ART) program in China which provides human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) treatment and care to rural and low-income urban patients who meet the guidelines. According to an observational cohort in 2004, the ART for adults is studied based on initial patient assessment, treatment follow-up, regimen change, termination and transfer of care, and that the treatment regimen for paediatric medication is more detailed. The performance of all laboratory tests in local hospitals is also noted.
