Abstract: WHO’s Towards Universal Access 2009 report documents a remarkable worldwide increase in the number of people receiving antiretrviral treatment (ART) – from 3 million in 2007 to 4 million in 2008 – creating hope that with sustained energy, universal ART coverage might be achievable (1). At the same time, the report emphasizes many challenges in delivering ART on a more massive scale. One challenge – the number and types of human resources that will be required to achieve universal coverage – deserves attention from a new perspective. In particular, we discuss the effect of feedback from current ART coverage to future ART human resources need on the sustainability of high lvels of ART coverage. But in order to think about the future, we first try to understand the past.
