Records of all the ARVs dispensed should be kept in a dedicated register book.
ART Patient Cards
Patient identification cards, which include medication (CTC 1), are to be issued to each patient. Patients (or appointed adherence assistants where patients can not collect the medication themselves) will then present the cards to the dispenser every time they are collecting medicines. All medications received are to be recorded on the card.
Register at the Pharmacy
The Pharmacist/Dispenser should record all the dispensed ARVs and sign in a dedicated register book located in the dispensing unit at the pharmacy.
Reports on the consumption and stocks of drugs should be sent to the Ministry of Health through the DMO for Program monitoring.
