  1. Values are n (col%) or median (IQR).
  2. 1One primary care facility in Zimbabwe had a static ART clinic but did no ART initiation for children < 10 (numbers of children initiating and followed up not included); 14 primary care facilities provided outreach clinics. 13/14 primary care facilities with outreach initiated adults on ART; 12/14 initiated children. 14/14 followed up adults, 13/14 followed up children.
  3. 2Where numbers do not sum to column total this is due to missing data, percentages are presented for non-missing data.
  4. 3Numbers on ART for Malawi are for adults and children combined (given in adults’ row). Numbers on ART missing for one primary care facility in Malawi.
  5. 4Malawian MoH data for quarter July-September 2011 were used for numbers on ART and for numbers initiating ART for 6 Phalombe facilities. Interview data were used for facilities outside Phalombe. Zimbabwean MOH data for July-September 2011 were used for numbers on ART and numbers initiating ART (except for one primary care facility where data used were for March-May 2012). Ugandan MoH data for quarter October-December 2011 were used for numbers on ART and numbers initiating ART (except for 3 primary care sites and 2 secondary care sites where interview data were used for numbers initiating).
