stronger. For all the latest Entertainment News, Engagement of the private pharmaceutical sector for TB control: rhetoric or reality? reviewed public-private mix interventions to fight TB and analysed global-level documents from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Stop TB Partnership in five phases from 2003 to 2015 This is especially important since India has set 2025 as the deadline for eliminating tuberculosis which would require 95 percent reduction in new cases as FactChecker reported in March 2017 The number of tuberculosis deaths doubled – from 220000 in 2014 to 480000 to 2015 – due to notifications from providers in the private sector as IndiaSpend reported in October 2016 As part of the revised national tuberculosis control programme (RNTCP) India’s flagship anti-TB programme nearly 75000 pharmacy outlets were engaged in 12 districts across four states over a four-year period (2010-14) through a public-private partnership to detect and control TB Approximately 10 percemt to 15 percent of suspected cases referred by 7000 pharmacists over two years were found to be positive and placed on treatment the study found “Clearly this example illustrates not only the success of engaging retail drug outlets but also the need for steady scale up to increase national coverage” the authors of the paper noted Representational image AFP ‘Even local paan-walas were engaged chemists left out’ Despite making free drugs and treatment for TB available under directly observed treatment short course (DOTS) since 1997 nearly 22 million — or around 50 percent — TB patients in India seek treatment in the private sector according to this November 2016 study in the medical journal Lancet The Indian government considers private providers as assets in its efforts to reach all TB patients for care and control the draft of the National Strategic Plan for Tuberculosis Elimination 2017-2025 released in February 2017 said Yet despite the success of previous efforts the government has not fully tapped the potential of private pharmacies to fight TB Under the DOTS strategy in the first 2-4 months of treatment called the intensive phase patients have to take all their doses under direct observation of the DOTS provider three times a week (now changed to a daily regimen in five states and set to be expanded) For patient convenience public-health facilities private medical practitioners and even local points of contact such as convenience stores were recognised as DOTS providers “While even local paan-walas were engaged as DOTS providers in some cases chemists had been left out” said Manjiri Gharat Vice-President and Chairman Community Pharmacy division Indian Pharmaceutical Association Local pharmacists are easily approachable available and attentive Private pharmacists tend to be from within the local community are familiar with residents are available for long hours and can be easily contacted In 2006 the IPA started a pilot project to train pharmacists to detect TB and refer those with symptoms to the public system in Mumbai; almost half of 150 pharmacists so enlisted became DOTS providers setting up centres in their outlets Since pharmacists picked up patients who frequently came with symptoms of TB such as prolonged cough they could refer the patients for further tests in government facilities and help them get treated on time Also patients found it convenient and less of a stigma to visit a local pharmacy By 2010 the project was scaled up as we said to four states and 12 districts across the country In 2012 the RNTCP signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the IPA the All India Organisation of Chemists and Druggists the Pharmacy Council of India and others to “engage pharmacists in RNTCP for TB Care and Control in India” By 2017 this Lilly MDR-TB partnership was running in eight states: Maharashtra Gujarat Tamil Nadu Uttarakhand Madhya Pradesh Haryana Karnataka and Goa In Maharashtra alone 134 pharmacies in four municipal corporations were engaged 70 of whom became DOTS providers and have since referred over 68 patients and treated 500 patients in their pharmacies In Navi Mumbai 30 percent patients referred by pharmacists tested positive for TB In the narrow lanes of Sector 1 Airoli a locality in Navi Mumbai lies Sandeep Medical Store With neatly-stacked bottles of drugs and pharmaceutical products it looks like any other pharmacy but a board outside says “DOTS Provider Centre Free medicines for Tuberculosis are given here” Proprietor Sandeep Deshmukh has been running the pharmacy since 1989 His pharmacy was recognised as a DOTS provider in 2010 and he has treated 30 patients in the past seven years “I see it as a kind of social service which gives me immense satisfaction” Deshmukh told IndiaSpend As many as 30 percent of cases referred by pharmacists in Navi Mumbai turned out to be sputum-positive for tuberculosis according to the IPA “Patients are generally afraid of going to the government hospital because of the long waiting period and private doctors often do not bother referring them for sputum test in spite of (the patients) suffering with cough for months which is where chemists can make a difference” said Satish Shah vice president Navi Mumbai Chemist Association Most patients are not aware that medicines to treat TB are freely available in the government centre or that TB can be cured in six months he said adding that this is the kind of awareness that pharmacists help spread ‘Time to marshal resources and scale up efforts’ The RNTCP had planned to to scale up engagement to reach about 500000 pharmacies through IPA’s efforts according to this extract from 2012 World Conference on Lung Health of the Union By 2015 only 75000–or 15 percent of the target–were engaged in the initiative This is a missed opportunity in many ways “We know what works and we no longer need ‘pilot initiatives’–it is time to marshal resources and scale up private pharmacy efforts as part of RNTCP’s broader private sector strategy” Niranjan Konduri co-author of the January 2017 paper and Principal Technical Advisor United States Agency for International Development System for Improved Access to Pharmaceutical and Services programme told IndiaSpend in an email interview It would also help India in preventing Antimicrobial resistance by rational dispensing of antibiotics through effective regulation and enforcement with the cooperation of state food and drug administration TB control department and pharmacists he added “If RNTCP
