The author assesses the South Africa's government-funded highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) programs for patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. He states that the slow pace in implementing such programs has been a growing concern of the country. He suggests that HAART programs should be the top priority in the country and must have appropriate tools to monitor its developments and effectiveness.
