Development  of unified PSM strategy for EECA countries

http://vantagehsi.com/trach-care/home-health-care-our-location  

Arona Background and Justification

Looking from the perspective of the whole EECA region it should be noted that there is a wide diversity in PSM models used in different countries and their maturity. Still, the technical barriers related to PSM area are often similar (e.g. impossibility to procure from manufacturers/import medicines in foreign packaging/unregistered medicines; taxation; further weighed down by legal restrictions). This is the result of historical and political background, level of economic development, presence of international donors, etc. Level of efficiency of PSM systems directly impacts patients access to the treatment. One of the contributing factors which led for increasing of AIDS-related mortality is a significant treatment gap of 72% that exists in the EECA region. This is also justified by the fact, that the countries in the EECA region continue to pay some of the highest prices for ARV therapy among middle-income countries.

In the light of transition from GF funding to national governments which is now taking place regionally with different dynamics, it is essential to assure that governments demonstrate readiness to take over PSM functions for medicines. Keeping in mind priorities set by the donor, considering strong assumptions that the share of ARV procurement within the national (country) budgets, as a rule, constitutes a perceptible part of it along with imposed budget limitations, improvements for PSM functions are highly sought after. This leads to conclusion that unified overarching strategy for EECA region countries may highlight area for relevant PSM building capacity interventions and improve patients access to life-saving medicines.

Goal:

  1. Provide technical assistance to Moldova for implementing PSM;
  2. Provide recommendations to improve the PSM regulatory framework;
  3. Strengthen the capacity of government officials and responsible CSOs for different functions of the PSM cycle.
