Overall challenges in multi-stakeholder process A new concept and idea, it needs more time for people to accept and understand Lack of experience of multi-stakeholder process and the need for different communication skills for members Inter-personal /inter-institutional communication skills for MeTA Council Members was a challenge, (active listening etc training is needed) There are currently issues related to Council members listening to each other and putting their point across in a non- confrontational way People are not all used to operating in a forum where people represent organizations with such different positions and they need support on consensus building

  12. Major achievements and successes for MeTA in Jordan In terms of CSO building capacity area: The CSO committee has drafted a CSO workplan where it is derived form the three major priorities in the overall national MeTA workplan in Jordan, “Build capacity of (CSOs) to monitor and increase accountability of all stakeholders with respect to the prices, availability, selection and quality of medicines in the public and private sectors A nucleus of a CSO coalition has started to form and a MoU was signed with the Int. MeTA Secretariat in November 2009 and a specific CSO workplan was approved accordingly the voice of patient is now becoming heard by the Government policy makers The very first activity was conducted to map and identify CSOs to assess their ability and willingness to work together and to engage them with the MeTA council, this activity has set the baseline work for the CSOs in Jordan

  13. MeTA Major achievements and successes for MeTA in Jordan In terms of CSO building capacity area: Workshop on building capacity of CSOs in order to strengthen their ability to monitor and increase accountability of all stakeholders regarding medicines prices, availability, selection and quality of medicines CSOs have Participated in the Harvard Flagship course and have participated in the country exchange visit to the Philippines Conduct a training on advocacy and communications in improving access to essential medicinesThe CSO level of engagement with the MeTA process is moving forward gradually At the start of the process there was limited activities and meeting but since November they become more engaged

  16. Overall Challenges

  17. Overall Challenges At Pharmaceutical level: Poor forecasting and estimation of medicines needs which led to low availability of medicines in public sector High Health expenditure 9.05% of GDP where 34% out of it is spent on medicines with 2/3 expenditure is out of pocket and all this is seen as our fault and Irrational Use of Medicines Willingness of the private sector to share information, such as information related to prices, promotional activities and quality High pharmaceutical promotion / hard to control even some patient group's budgets are partially supported by pharmaceutical companies No base line data to measure outcomes

  18. Overall challenges At the MeTA Level: Short period, the two year MeTA pilot is not enough to present and measure the impact on the availability and RDU,, as much as we worked and contributed as a sector the outcome will be noticed through years to come We started the MeTA process with no base line data to rely on, the base line data to be collected started after the MeTA process commenced Changes in MeTA Council representatives positions/agendas can hinder their participation in medicines policy changes and creates a gap between Council members Private sector is poorly represented in the MeTA Council

  19. Overall Challenges At the MeTA Level: CSOs are still not represented in drug related committees like the Pricing Committee or Higher Drug Committee Difficulty in attracting new CSO groups to join the MeTA CSO coalition and there is an absence of coordination or sharing of expertise and experiences among the various CSOs Limited participation of CSO representatives in MeTA Baseline Data Disclosure Survey and no coordination for the CSOs work Poor role of the CSOs in the decision making process with limited role in patient counseling

  20. Lessons Learned

  21. Lessons Learned To continue exploring national opportunities for pursuing MeTA post-pilot in Jordan Looking for sustainability when MeTA ends in the country, we need to keep searching for other fund and contact other international partners like EU Opening channels with media to engage external stakeholders with the MeTA process and raise public awareness To recommend activities and present a prioritised workplan to the International MeTA Secretariat for discussion as soon To engage parliament in the MeTA process The stakeholders started to understand each others perspectives CSO engagement with the MeTA process complements the overall picture and highlights patients’ need. Capacity for CSOs to engage more effectively needs to be built

  22. Lessons Learned A budget for a CSO coordinator should have been listed in the CSO workplan and there should be an organized structure for the CSO coalition The MeTA process has opened channels of communication between different stakeholders and between different countries MeTA has acted as a coordinating body for the pharmaceutical sector players and stakeholders and for people working in the pharmaceutical sector We have learned the Importance of Data Disclosure, many outputs we were keen to participate in towards disclosure it was a useful exercise that improved communication, sharing and disclosing of information, a core MeTA principle we agreed to publish all outcomes on Jordan MeTA Web site and learned that we should involve the media more

  23. Lessons Learned MeTA has acted as a coordinating body for the pharmaceutical sector, also the MeTA process has opened channels of communication between different stakeholders and between different countries The Consultants Technical Advisory role is of a high value for the MeTA process and in improving quality of implementation of the national workplan The multi-stakeholders ( public, private and CSOs) process in very hard, it takes time to have the stakeholders understand each other's perspectives and identify that there were in fact common priorities and one objective to work on together The international and the national MeTA Secretariat coordination role is integral for the MeTA process to move forward
