Mapping of HIV/AIDS Facilities in Maharashtra by Dr. C. A. K. Yesudian

  1. 1. What is SAM • SAM is a country owned monitoring tool meeting the needs of multiple partners • At national level, SAM is used to track equity between districts and identify major gaps in service availability • At district level, SAM supports informed decision making and providing sub-national planners with the skills and tools required to map and monitor service and resources availability on a regular basis • Disease specific programmes use SAM thus avoiding fragmentation and duplication • SAM results are widely disseminated and used by health sector and civil society including other sectors • National planners will be able to map all facilities and all other services on regular basis
  2. 2. Objectives  Rapidly Map the HIV/AIDS specific services and resources in all the districts of Maharashtra.  Make this information available to decision makers, planners and managers at the Tehsil (sub-district) and health facility level and  Build the district level capacities to collect, analyze and produce maps using HealthMapper.
  3. 3. SAM Tools The SAM tool is made up of two components: A census methodology including 2 questionnaires: - District Questionnaire - Facility Questionnaire + The Health Mapper system: - Mapping Interface - Data Manager Together, these components make up an assessment and monitoring tool for service and resource availability for HIV/AIDS and other services.
  4. 4. Application 1. Data collected using questionnaires by field 2. Data is uploaded in investigators WHO’s HealthMapper application 3. Data is analysed and thematic maps and graphs developed using HealthMapper

  7. 7. Map of Sindhudurg District showing General Hospitals
  8. 8. Map of Kudal Tehsil showing Health and Infrastructure Facilities
  9. 9. Total No. of Facilities Surveyed: 4595
  10. 10. Total No. of Facilities Surveyed: 4595
  11. 11. Total No. of Facilities Surveyed: 4595
  12. 12. Total No. of Private Facilities : 3074
  13. 13. Total No. of Facilities: 3079
  14. 14. # Progressive rise in private facilities. No significant expansion of PHCs. # Marked growth of Nursing Homes and Diagnostic Centres
  15. 15. Total No. of Facilities: 951
  16. 16. No. of Facilities: HIV Counseling: N= 1898; HIV Testing: N=1483; PPTCT: N = 501; ART: N=301. Others: General & Speciality Hospitals, Mobile Clinics, Physical and Mental Rehabilitation Centres, Community Based Facilities.
  17. 17. No. of Facilities: HIV Counseling: N= 1898; HIV Testing: N=1483; PPTCT: N = 501; ART: N=301. Others: Semi-government (Aided by government), Corporate, Unknown.
  18. 18. Use of SAM Generated Maps  State level planning: appropriately locating health care facilities.  District and sub-district level: informed decision to deliver health services effectively.  Individual level: informed choice of health care facilities to meet the health needs.  Monitor quality of services and regulate health services.
  19. 19. Way Forward  Integrate SAM with health system and its HMIS.  Use GPS for locating services and hand held data collection tools to achieve accuracy and speedier data collection.  Generate capacities within health system to update data, generate relevant maps and disseminate at all levels.  Generate the managerial capacity of administrators to use SAM as a decision making tool.  Make available SAM in the public domain, so that it is used beyond the government health system.
