Access To Antiretroviral Treatment By Children In KwaZulu-Natal Province: A Qualitative Exploratory Study Into Factors Influencing Poor Access: Roger

Roger Phili's study employed qualitative research methods to explore psychosocial and health system factors that influence slow paediatric access to ART in KZN from the parents and caregivers perspectives. A qualitative design was used because of its ability to enter deep into the social issues influencing participant’s behavioural decisions which may be unknown. The ecological theory was used to formulate an interview schedule that was used to conduct in-depth interviews with adults (parents or guardians) who were bringing their children for ART-services and those attending these services themselves and not their children at Edendale and King Edward Hospitals in KZN.

Very interesting study - hearing this presentation from the HSRC and also comments from a past student and intern at the Africa Centre makes me very aware of all the research going on outside of the university and student world
