  • Labs for QC not adequate

  • DOTS not widespread (except Benin)

Selection Process

  • All countries have protocols (STGs), however each country’s STGs may differ

    • Weakness: Forms and dosages differ within country

  • Regimen changes have been successful

    • Weakness: Problems with wastage


Distribution and Use

  • All NTP involved in quantification

    • Weakness: Data questionable (except Benin, CB)

  • Drug management information systems are sometimes weak

  • Movement of drugs from the central to the regional level works well

    • Weakness: Movement from the regional to peripheral level is a problem


Distribution and Use, continued

  • Use of blister packs has improved compliance and reduced wastage (Nigeria, Uganda)
