  5. 5. But, in fact…. plenty of opportunities in LIC ! 1. If you purchase Out-Of-Pocket…you decide 2. Costs can be slashed, real value can be improved. 3. Enough “patients” who are eager to learn 4. Slow disease means enough life-time left to learn 5. Lay people (non-medical) have less conflict of interest than medical staff in sharing knowledge; 6. Lay people are inter-sectoral 7. Lower cost favors adherence by PWD/chronic patients 8. Set cost to patient at <10% of GNI per capita 9. Lay people are cheap; 10. Task shift to lay people reduces health system stress www.mopotsyo.org 5
