Community ART groups (CAG), peer support groups involved in community ART distribution and mutual psychosocial support, were piloted to respond to staggering antiretroviral treatment (ART) attrition in Mozambique. To understand the impact of CAG on long‐term retention, we estimated mortality and lost‐to‐follow‐up (LTFU) rates and assessed predictors for attrition.
