Getting Orders to the Right Place
Information from facilities to MSD and MOH For ordering ARVs hospitals take orders to MSD using R/R forms and MSD will deliver to the hospitals. For reporting, facilities send R/R copies to MOH Facilities will send summary report of patients on different treatment regimens to MOH Facilities will send summary report of patients on different treatment regimens to MOH The whole country uses the same reporting mechanism developed together with partners
Cont… Information from reports is compiled and used for: -assessing consumption pattern -forecasting purposes -trend of drug utilized -number of patients on different regimens -number of new patients enrolled -deaths
ARV Form A2 (abbreviated form)
