A software application developed by the University of Cape Town to monitor patients on treatment for HIV and TB treatment is being implemented by countries such as Mozambique, Malawi, Vietnam and Pakistan.The electronic register, developed by UCT’s Centre for Infectious Disease, Epidemiology and Research (CIDER), is already in use in 3 000 clinics in South Africa.Known as TIER.net, the software was developed because paper registers used to keep track of HIV patients became too unwieldy.Although another application – eKapa2 – had already been developed to do this, it could not be used by all clinics as it relies on internet access to work. TIER.Net, on the other hand, operates offline, requiring only a computer.CollaborationThe application is the result of a collaborative effort between CIDER, the Canadian International Development Agency, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organisation. The Western Cape and national government teams also participated in the development of the project.Representatives from Mozambique, Malawi, Vietnam and Pakistan were at UCT recently for TIER.Net training.CIDER has been responsible for overseeing the implementation of TIER.Net and eKapa 2 in the Western Cape, as well as training “master implementers” for the national Department of Health.Originally the idea was that TIER.Net would only be used in the Western Cape, but it soon drew the attention of the Department of Health, who requested that it be made available to all clinics in South Africa.There are more than 4 000 public sector clinics in South Africa, with TIER.Net being used in more than 3 000 facilities. It cannot be implemented in all clinics as some do not have electricity.Once clinics have been equipped with bandwidth, they will cross over to eKapa 2.“All three systems – paper register, TIER.Net and eKapa – are interoperable,” said CIDER’s Meg Osler, who oversaw TIER.Net’s software development. All three systems can be used to produce the same reports that feed into a single provincial and national database for ARV services.Information gathered through TIER.Net, eKapa 2 or paper register is used to inform policy and resource allocation.This is an edited version of a story first published by UCT.

Days after hapless residents of waterlogged areas of Patna such as Rajendra Nagar and Kankerbagh heaved a sigh of relief and with life gradually coming to terms for them, the Bihar government formed a three-member committee — from those departments primarily responsible for the waterlogging — to probe the reasons for it.The committee will submit its report in seven days and in two weeks’ time action will be taken against those responsible for the prolonged waterlogging in certain areas, State Urban Development and Housing Department (UDHD) Minister Suresh Kumar Sharma, who ordered the probe, told journalists on Thursday.The three-member committee comprises UDHD Special Secretary Sanjay Kumar, Bihar Urban Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (BUIDCO) Managing Director Amrendra Prasad Singh and Commissioner of Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) Amit Kumar Pandey. The committee has been asked to look into certain aspects that caused the waterlogging and officials responsible for it.However, it is these three departments that are primarily responsible for maintenance of drainage system, running of pumps at sump houses and managing manpower to make the city clean and free from perennial waterlogging.“The committee will inspect all the 38 sump houses in the city…it will also submit a report on the equipment purchased by the PMC for drainage and sanitation works”, said the minister.Earlier during the prolonged waterlogging in the city, the minister had pinned the blame on BUIDCO and PMC for the problem.According to a report, ₹49 crore was spent in the last 13 years by the government just to prepare the survey map of the drainage system in Patna. The companies said to be blacklisted in other States were given tenders to complete the job.Official sources at the UDHD told The Hindu that the government still has no proper map of the drainage system for Patna.Patna Mayor Sita Sahu was at a loss for words recently when journalists asked her about the city’s drainage system and sump houses. She blamed the BUIDCO for prolonged waterlogging in certain areas of Patna. All three departments were throwing the ball in others’ courts for the unprecedented waterlogging problem in the city.“It’s ridiculous that the officials of those departments who are responsible for our week-long nightmare due to neck-deep waterlogging in Rajendra Nagar area have been made members of the committee formed by the government to probe the reasons. What more salt the government can rub on our wounds?”, fumed Rajendra Nagar resident Ashutosh Kumar, a professor of history.Rajendra Nagar residents blocked roads and staged protests on Thursday to demand compensation and adequate bleaching and fogging in the area to prevent the outbreak of dengue, diarrhoea and other water-borne diseases.Meanwhile, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is said to be holding a high-level review meeting on October 14 with officials for an “action plan” to find out reasons and for follow-up action regarding the prolonged waterlogging in some areas of Patna. “It will also be looked into who are responsible for such prolonged waterlogging and action will be taken against them”, said State Chief Secretary Deepak Kumar.The Opposition party leaders, however, alleged that it’s all noora-kushti (friendly fight) that the ruling alliance partners BJP and JD(U) are playing on the misery and woes faced by the residents of waterlogged areas. “What was the need of both the UDHD minister (who is from the BJP) to form a three-member committee when the Chief Minister himself was going to hold a review meeting with high-officials on October 14?…In fact, there is a tug of war going on between both the ruling alliance parties”, charged senior RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari.
