Anova Health Institute, 2016.

This case study describes a pilot project carried out in Limpopo Province, South Africa, to improve viral load (VL) completion rates. A strategy of using color-coded stickers for tracking when patients needed VL monitoring led to improved VL completion at 6 and 12 months of the pilot. It is a simple and low-cost quality improvement intervention to improve VL completion, requiring minimal training.
