Western Pacific Regional Green Light Committee: progress and way forward

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

The Western Pacific Regional Green Light Committee (rGLC WPR) was established in 2011 to promote scale-up of programmatic management of drug-resistant tuberculosis (PMDT).

rGLC WPR has generated greater awareness of regional challenges and has encouraged local solutions to regional problems.

PMDT should be part and parcel of routine TB programme activity.

Challenges and bottlenecks have varied according to the different stages of PMDT implementation, requiring different types of technical assistance.

Regional initiatives should be dynamic and responsive to the needs of countries.

Mentions: Oversight by the rGLC WPR has ensured optimal value extraction from country missions. All reports have been critically reviewed with clear formulation of feasible and prioritized recommendations. Challenges and bottlenecks have varied according to the different stages of PMDT implementation, requiring different types of technical assistance (Figure 2). The rGLC has benefited from the existing close relationships between the WHO Regional Office and member countries, which has enhanced the articulation of local priorities and needs. The decentralized rGLC model has been found to be more accessible and has created a platform for sharing experiences (both frustrations and successes), strengthening local ownership and encouraging innovative local solutions. Enrolment statistics since 2011 confirm that an increasing number of patients have accessed care (Table 2), despite major financial constraints.11 The rising trend demonstrates the readiness for PMDT scale-up, and the credit for the progress made belongs to the respective countries. However, considerable unmet needs remain.
