Data was collected in late 2009 using qualitative research methods. Eleven key informant interviews were conducted with policy makers, opinion leaders, program managers, and development partners, all working on HIV and AIDS activities at the national level. Each was based in Maseru, though some of their work covered both rural and urban areas. Four focus group discussions (FGDs) were also conducted with a total of 17 participants. The FGDs were held in both rural and urban areas and included network members, community health workers, home-based caregivers, and caregivers for orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC). In March and April 2011, a total of three Net-Maps were conducted with actors at different levels of the health system: national (Maseru), district (Butha-Buthe), and community (Mafeteng). These group consultations with key stakeholders sought to explore specific challenges and opportunities related to HIV information flows across the health system. Locations and Net-Map participants were chosen in consultation with NAC representatives.
