ART denial: Results of a home-based study to validate self-reported antiretroviral use in rural South Africa

There is increasing interest in home-based testing and treatment of HIV to expand access to treatment in sub-Saharan Africa. Such programs rely on self-reported HIV history and use of antiretroviral therapy (ART). However, the accuracy of self-reported ART use in community settings is not well described. In this study, we compared self-reported ART (SR-ART) use in a home-based survey against biological exposure to ART (BE-ART), in a population study of older adults in South Africa.
