(2010; 150 pages)

Abstract

The following tables are the product of a focused effort to collect and present information on hospice and palliative care drugs included in the list of medicines compiled by the International Association of Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) for 11 PEPFAR countries: Botswana, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

This effort was undertaken by a consultant to AIDSTAR-One at the request of the PEPFAR Care and Support Technical Working Group (TWG). The deliverable described in the scope of work (SOW) is a brief summary report, consisting mostly of tables, of country-specific characteristics of the medicines included in the IAHPC list.

The analysis included a detailed look at the following documents to determine if the IAHPC medicines were included:

  • list of registered drugs
  • standard treatment guidelines for HIV and AIDS
  • essential medicines list
  • central medical stores catalog.
