The collection of reliable data is the first step to assess the status of HIV/AIDS in a community. HIV recording systems are necessary for organizing and analyzing the patients' data. The aim of the study was to develop a database to be used to track HIV positive/AIDS patients. The database includes general demographic fields as well as specific fields such as health history, laboratory and other clinical history, current and past drug regimens (both antiretroviral and non-antiretroviral drugs). It is also possible to organize and maintain a patient database according to specific diseases, laboratory tests and/or medication treatments.
