rse who informed me that she would be able to distribute antiretrovirals; with that I had a month’s worth of treatment. If we have to give up this treatment we will return to how we were at the start, sick."

The authors acknowledge that their results have been achieved with the resources of an international nongovernmental organization (MSF), in an urban setting, with the episode of conflict-related disruption occurring early in the programme, and thus similar results in conflict settings may not always be possible. "Nevertheless," they say, "the key elements of contingency planning for care delivery in conflict settings are not resource-intense and we believe they can generally be applied to most care programmes."
