Myanmar Case Study: Increasing Access to HIV Treatment. Mburu G, Paing AZ, Myint NN, Wang B, et al. (2016)


There has been a rapid increase in the number of people living with HIV in Myanmar over the last decade, the majority of who are eligible for treatment. Alongside this increase has been an effort by the ministry of health to rapidly scale up provision of treatment in order to reduce HIV-related illnesses and deaths.

However, Myanmar has an ambitious national strategic goal of providing ART to 106,058 people by the end of 2016. The health system in Myanmar is already stretched, and to achieve this goal, innovation in ART delivery will be required in-order to ensure that ART is provided close to communities, without compromising quality.

Global Action Plan for HIV Drug Resistance 2016-2021. WHO. (2016)


The World Health Organization (WHO) is committed to ensuring that the great success of HIV treatment scale-up is not threatened by HIV drug resistance (HIVDR). Preventing HIVDR is an important part of meeting the 90-90-90 targets by the year 2020.

The development of a five-year plan reflects a global consensus that HIVDR in lower and middle-income countries requires a coordinated and resourced response. The Global Action Plan is an agreement by key partners about their respective roles in preventing, monitoring, and responding to HIVDR.

Data from the DOH - Epidemiology Bureau shows that only 44o/o of allpeople diagnosed with HIV from 2010 to 2015 were started on Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART). Based on the 2013 external evaluation of the health sector's response to HIV in the Philippines, long turn-around time of confirmatory HIV testing is one of the identified barriers for prompt referral and management. In the interim, this memorandum shall ensure linkage to care of clients with reactive HIV screening test to immediately be assessed by Treatment hubs, satellite treatment hubs and HIV primary care clinics in order to provide early treatment and management.

Untangling the Web of Antiretroviral Price Reductions. Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). (2016)


The report finds that prices of older HIV drugs continue to decline, while newer drugs remain largely priced out of reach. This is in large part because pharmaceutical corporations maintain monopolies that block price-lowering generic competition.

Today, the lowest available price for a quality-assured, World Health Organization-recommended first-line one-pill-a-day combination is US$100 per person per year (tenofovir/emtricitabine/efavirenz). This is a decrease of 26 per cent since MSF last recorded the lowest price for first-line treatment at US$136 in 2014. For a WHO-recommended second-line regimen, the lowest available price is now US$286 per person per year (zidovudine/lamivudine + atazanavir/ritonavir) – an 11 per cent decrease from US$322 two years ago.
