Scaling up art care in mexico in a multi system context l.jpg
Scaling up ART care in Mexico in a multi-system context patients in four Mexican hospitals

  • 8 years since the Mexican government’s commitment to Universal Access to antiretrovirals.

  • Providing ARV coverage is carried out in a multi-system context:

    • Public health system: Secretaría de Salud (SSA); National Institutes of Health (INSalud)

    • Social security system: IMSS, ISSSTE, Pemex

    • Private sector health care: private practice physicians, hospitals, insurance.

  • Little known about PLWHA history of diagnosis and care, adherence, and patterns in seeking care in a context of multiple systems-- which are crucial to ensure quality of care and adherence.


Objectives l.jpg
Objectives patients in four Mexican hospitals

  • Investigate self-reported care seeking behaviors and adherence within the context of Universal Access.

  • Identify how patients access care and patterns of care seeking, including use of private sector and out-of-pocket expenditures.

  • Analyze factors that affect adherence, in the context of receiving care at public sector institutions.


Methodology and sample l.jpg
Methodology and Sample patients in four Mexican hospitals

  • Exploratory study

  • Patient interviews (2005)

    • 189 HIV+ patients

    • Convenience sample

  • 4 Hospitals in and around Mexico City

    • 2 tertiary care hospitals

    • 1 social security hospital

    • 1 public health hospital (SSA)

  • Pre-coded questionnaire covering socio-economic status, health and HIV history, health expenditures, care received, disease history, quality of life and adherence.

Description of the Sample patients in four Mexican hospitals

*Values are means ±. SD


Experience with haart l.jpg
Experience with HAART patients in four Mexican hospitals

  • Nearly all currently receiving HAART (98%)

  • They are new to ARV therapy:

    • 65% <1 year on therapy

    • 25% 1-5 years

    • 10% >5 years

  • Feel that treatment is working (94%)

    • 64% feel better

    • 51% are symptom free

    • 29% have gained weight

    • 31% don’t tire as easily

  • They know what they are taking (94%)

  • 24% report that treatment is complicated.


Care seeking among institutions l.jpg
Care seeking among institutions patients in four Mexican hospitals

  • INSalud patients access care from more institutions

  • Seek care at the institutions because they are referred there or because of the perceived quality of care.

  • A minority supplement with private sector care (<17%)

  • All seek ARVs at primary institution.

Median out-of-pocket expenditures (previous 2 months) patients in four Mexican hospitals

82% report out of pocket expenditures for care in previous 6 months

All values expressed in Mexican pesos. SD in brackets.


Adherence l.jpg
Adherence patients in four Mexican hospitals

  • Half reported skipping at least one day of treatment at one time (49%)

  • Seeking care at a greater number of institutions (>3) appears to be associated with non-adherence

  • Most common reason for missing a dose is being out of the house or forgetting (54%)

    • 25% Sick / Side effects

    • 11.25% Couldn’t get meds/stockouts

    • 11.25% Own decision

Multivariate analysis for Adherence patients in four Mexican hospitals

0 No Adherence, 1 Adherence

Number of observations = 130; Prob> chi^2 = 0.0063

Reference groups: time ARV 0 – 6 mo, no education or elementary school, 1 institution, time receiving attention 0-6 mo


Conclusions l.jpg
Conclusions patients in four Mexican hospitals

  • Inter-institutional referrals are frequent -- 45% referred – and should be handled carefully.

  • Private institutions play a minor role as care providers for PLWHA.

  • Adherence needs to be reinforced in the first year and among patients seeking care from multiple institutions

  • Out-of-pocket expenditures indicate insufficient coverage of additional services required for care of PLWHA.
