2. Adherence to Treatment efforts
This second project area of TLMSEP will look at the
psychosocial support of patients and their families to
improve patient and family experience and thereby
improve adherence to care.
The supports planned include:
Counseling and palliative care services – specialised staff training throughout the network of centres.
School and Play Therapy programmes – these will be implemented in all Tertiary centres and at the Hub.
Transportation programme – to ensure that all patients and their families have access to transport. Expanding the network of treatment centres across the country will ensure that 95% of all estimated cases are no more than a four-hour journey from a partner centre.
Outpatient and family housing programme – to give families a home away from home while attending follow up clinic. This
will be implemented at Tertiary centres and at the Hub.
Supporting families’ access to health care and to fund government health insurance for each child.
Tracking of children who fail to present at scheduled appointments will be strengthened.
