  • Pilot Implementation Was Initially Done in Six Clinics and One Mobile Team
    • Six primary health care clinics in urban and rural settings
    • One mobile team in a remote rural area in the north of Mozambique
    • Chart review for data collection performed at baseline and post-implementation
  • Point-Of-Care CD4 Counting Reduces Pre-Treatment Loss-To-Follow-Up
    Percent Of Patients Receiving
    CD4 Test Results
    Percent Of Patients Returning
    After Initial CD4
  • A Mobile Team Successfully Operates in Northern Lake Niassa, Mozambique
    Setting: population ~20,000, area 1,600 km2.
    Strategy: Every 2 months, 2 community health workers, with no formal health qualifications, make a round trip of 220 km on foot or kayak, stopping at 8 health posts.

  • Sites with POC CD4 Perform Well in the National Proficiency Testing Program

  • A Pilot Implementation in Currently Ongoing in Mozambique’s Gaza Province
    Main Objectives:
    - Test an approach for the implementation of point-of-care CD4 counting from a health system perspective.
    - Develop and validate tools to assist provincial authorities in scaling-up the implementation of point-of-care assays.
  • Site Matrix
    Preliminary site list generated from a site
    selection matrix.
    Nov
    2010
    Provincial Coordination
    Provincial stakeholder meetings. Site list validated.
    POC ToT
    Central level team trains provincial trainers.
    Dec
    2010
    Provincial trainers train and certify local POC
    CD4 operators.
    Train Sites
    Site Introduction
    Sites mentored. New patient flow diagrams
    implemented. Sites begin to implement POC CD4.
    Jan
    2011
    Joint Stakeholder evaluation meetings. Discussion
    of lessons learnt. Road map for continuous
    improvement. Validation of tools.
    Periodic Evaluation

  • Expected Outputs of the
    Provincial Pilot:
    • Site selection tool
    • Implementation process manual
    • Laboratory
    • Clinic
    • Logistics and supply chain
    • Quality assurance
    • Training curriculum
    • Recommendations for division of responsibilities (national, provincial, local)
  • The Improvement of Access to CD4 Counting is Not Uniform Across All Clinics
    NEW TECHNOLOGY IS NOT
    THE SOLE SOLUTION
    Limiting Factors:
    • Limited human resources - Change of culture
    • Patient overflow - Patient education
    • Clinic workflow
  • Ultimately, sucessful implementation of point-of-care diagnostics will be about changing health systems, creating a new health care culture and shifting responsibilities to primary health care level.
    In the coming years we will need to learn fast through implementation research.
    OBRIGADO!
