Following a successful pilot of nurse-driven ART in Lusikisiki and Lesotho, where there was a scarcity of doctors, MSF partnered with the PGWC to implement a nurse-initiated management of ART (NIMART) mentorship programme in Khayelitsha in December 2011, with the first NIMART-trained midwives providing ART at the Site B MOU in May 2012.
The PGWC ART guidelines recommend a first VL measurement four months after ART initiation.
In 2010, MSF partnered with the PGWC to pilot a 'second-line failure clinic' intervention at Ubuntu clinic, targeting patients receiving second-line ART and with two or more consecutive VL measurements [greater than or equal to]1 000 copies/ml.

The cost of the buildings and their contents were sourced from receipts for the relevant items provided by the DTHC and PGWC. Costs were apportioned across all years of useful lifetime: the temporary building was assumed to have a lifetime of 10 years, the purpose-built building 30, the fixtures and fittings 5, and electronic equipment 3.
To conclude, as partners with the PGWC and the national Department of Health, we are aware of the difficulties posed by implementing the new Mental Health Care Act, particularly in the light of our historical legacy and underresourced services.
