Correction for:

Keiser O, Orrell C, Egger M, Wood R, Brinkhof MWG, et al. (2008) Public-health and individual approaches to antiretroviral therapy: Township South Africa and Switzerland compared. PLoS Med 5(7): e148. doi:10.1371/journal.pmed.0050148

The Table 1 originally published with this manuscript stated that 95.1% of the patients from South Africa used regimens recommended by guidelines, compared to 99.6% in the Swiss cohort. This is incorrect: the figures have been reversed. As the article text makes clear, 95.1% of the Swiss patients used regimens recommended by guidelines, compared to 99.6% in the South African cohorts.
