You said, for the private pharmacies as a model for DDD, there is a service fee. Is it a cost to client or to the ART program? What is the approximate cost? How do you coordinate treatment monitoring through VL testing for clients accessing ART through private pharmacies?
Gift Kamanga
49:45
ok
Moses Bateganya
52:36
@Samreta, we will share materials from the Private Pharmacy session
Nina Hasen
01:02:51
Valery, that is a good question and we’ll have Dr. Lwin discuss integration of TB during the discussion session, since it’s more involved
Hannah Marqusee
01:05:07
How much did the uptake of ART services increase after services became free to clients? Is there any discussion with government that they may take over those costs if/when donor funding declines?
Moses Bateganya
01:09:45
There is one question in the Q&A. Probably one of the panelists maybe Moh Moh can answer
John Kimario
01:10:46
That is still to low linkage, USAID Boresha Afya project we are at linkage of 97%. We have not affected by COVID - 19 on linkage rate.
Nina Hasen
01:12:25
A question I missed from John Kimario for Dr. Lwin: why all 199 tested Positive were not initiated on ART?
Moh Moh Lwin
01:13:31
In Myanmar, we do sputum examination and Gene X Pert for TB, Most of Sun clnic integrated TB and HIV testing services, thus, Sun clinics found 3% HIV among TB patients
Moses Bateganya
01:14:23
Wonder how ministries and donors can help private providers get ARVs at discounted prices
Nina Hasen
01:15:47
Hi all, I will drop off after Farhan’s presentation and Hannah will take over. Moses, will you handle the discussion after that?
Moses Bateganya
01:16:23
Thanks Nina. Will handle the Q&A
Moses Bateganya
01:23:38
let the panelists try to answer as many of the questions as possible since we wont have enough Q&A
Hannah Marqusee
01:31:02
How much are the fees?
Hannah Marqusee
01:40:29
Could the panelists speak to reporting challenges - how can you incentivize and standardize reporting between private sector and MoH?
Moh Moh Lwin
01:42:20
In Myanmar, we provide clinic assistant support in ART clinics and the incentive varied with number of ART case holding at the clinic.

Zun Moe Htet
01:46:18
To clarify the questions from Nina , 199 patients from the PITC clinics are not positive patients. They are reactive and we link them to confirmation center and confirmation center proceed with ART initiation.
Hannah Marqusee
01:47:58
Another question to all - could you speak to how these models could become more equitable and affordable? A criticism of this kind of work is often that it can create 2 tiered systems - higher quality for those willing to pay and lower quality for those who cannot. How do you respond to that critique?
Edward Oladele
01:50:05
Is there some form of "accreditation" system that could be exported from the private sector to public facilities to assure quality of care across board?
