Abstract

With a global HIV/AIDS epidemic, developing countries are facing an enormous challenge in combating the disease. Public health will be placed under severe pressure in providing treatment such as highly active antiretroviral therapy to all its HIV infected patients. Human Resources will be stretched to the limit as it becomes the focus point in the treatment cycle of a patient. This paper will describe the challenges involved in establishing a data warehouse to provide strategic human resource information during the rollout of antiretroviral therapy. It will also show that a successful data warehouse can be developed, regardless of the obstacles involved.
