  • Description:
    SLATE II (Simplified Algorithm for Treatment Eligibility) is a revised algorithm of SLATE I, an evidence-based intervention, that focuses on a simple, accelerated algorithm for ART initiation that requires no point-of-care laboratory testing and may be administered entirely by primary care clinicians, including nurses with prescribing authority. The SLATE I algorithm consists of four screening tools: (1) symptom report, (2) medical history, (3) brief physical examination, and (4) patient readiness assessment, each as an evaluation area for eligibility requirements for same-day ART initiation. SLATE II uses the 4 screening tools and allows same-day ART initiation for patients with mild tuberculosis (TB) symptoms and other less serious reasons for delay. Participants determined to be eligible based on all four screening tools were offered ART initiation on the same day as study enrollment. Participants found to be ineligible on any of the screening tools were referred to routine care at the study site clinic for further management.
