Main activities:

• During the reference period, CCS has allocated funds and provided technical assistance to improve the laboratory conditions of HG Mavalane and CS Cemento Polana in Maputo.
• The laboratory professionals were involved in the CD4 expansion plan, with the introduction of Pima and the implementation of dosing lymphocytes T CD4-through Pima in Inhambane province.
• CCS funded the participation of 6 Lab Technicians from Inhambane province in the Coaches Training for the use of PIMAS, held in Maputo.
• In August 2013, these professionals replicated the PIMAS training for 23 laboratory technicians from different selected districts, which would operate the PIMAS in Inhambane Province. In Maputo City, they began to implement the PIMAS in roughly the same period.
• In September, due to the transfer of the biochemistry apparatus from Urban CS to the District Hospital of Massinga, these technicians in collaboration with other DPS Inhambane, conducted a training for 3 operators at Biochemistry unit in HD Massinga. The biochemistry equipment benefits Massinga, Funhalouro and Morrumbene districts, thus shortening the distances that these patients must travel for HPI.

Rehabilitation/Renovations pharmacies in the US

Most pharmacies in the HF do not present conditions for the packaging of medicines and likewise for dispensing to patients, particularly in the management of data for monitoring and remission of patients with chronic diseases such as HIV-positive patients.
Thus, the main objective of interventions in the rehabilitation of pharmacies is to better organize the spaces, equipping the pharmacy with appropriate furniture for activities (in particular conditions for archiving and management of FILAS and other management tools related to ARVs) and above all ensure better conditions for users of pharmacies; to have benches to sit on beneath the shade during the waiting time as well as privacy conditions during the dispensing of medicines.
