2012 recommendations aimed at providing an overview of the different strategy elements for population surveillance and monitoring of antiretroviral resistance, so as to inform its implementation in resource-limited settings. Includes identifying early warning indicators, surveillance of drug resistance before implementation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) programmes and among those receiving ART, cross-sectional surveys at representative ART clinics (both for those starting ART and after 12 months of receiving ART), surveys of resistance in children younger than 18 months of age, surveys of drug resistance in recently infected populations, and surveillance within national ART programmes.
