In Malawi, the considerable number of health care workers (HCW) who have complications of HIV-related disease is a major contributor to the HRH crisis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a dedicated HCW HIV clinic and to draw lessons for further program development and inform policy. Specific objectives included measurement of the demographics and program outcomes of patients followed at the HCW HIV clinic and comparing them with individuals attending the general HIV clinic; assessment of the level of general awareness of the clinic amongst HCW who are the target of the intervention; and assessment of the perceptions of patients (current and potential), hospital management and care providers about the value and barriers to uptake of clinic services.
