Abstract : Médecins Sans Frontières has been delivering HIV care for 15 years in Myanmar. By acting in accordance with the WHO guidelines over time and by subsequent responding in those areas where the burden of HIV is high and complex, the MSF package of HIV care offered solution. This a model of HIV care grew out to become comprehensive through the development of methods and strategies in order to provide patient centered and differentiated care, as well as efficient clinical human resource management. The National AIDS Programme (NAP) formulated ambitious goals for the following years in the national strategic plan, not only reflecting the goals set by the world community but also addressing the specific issues of Myanmar. During the past few years, the Ministry of Health and Sports (MoHS) and the National AIDS Programme in Myanmar have been successful with reaching more HIV patients as well as scaling up diagnosis and ART for HIV patients. However, a range of clinical and work force related challenges remain in order to achieve these aims. Capitalizing the extensive experience of MSFs HIV care in Myanmar will be a very valuable lesson for MSF operations in similar situations, but could particularly also serve as guiding model of care for the NAP in Myanmar. To our knowledge, in Myanmar there has been no implementation and publication on differentiated care acting and responding to WHO guidelines. The proposed study aims to analyze the outcomes of differentiated HIV care on clinical outcomes and clinical work force outcomes in a large HIV patient cohort supported by MSF in Myanmar. The findings of this research will contribute to scientific evidence needed for recommendations on a clinically effective and HR efficient model of HIV care in Myanmar and similar settings.
