Clinical Establishments Act Standards for Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre CEA orICTC

1. Definition:

1.1 An integrated counselling and testing centre is a place where a person is counselled and tested and checked for HIV, Tuberculosis, ANC and postnatal follow up on his own free will or as advised by a medical provider.

1.2 An ICTC shall be located in health facilities owned by the government, in the privateornot for-profit sector, in public sector organizationsorother government departments such as the Railways, Employees’ State Insurance Department (ESID), etc. and in sectors where nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have a presence.

1.3 In the health facility, the ICTC shall be well coordinated with the Department of Medicine, Microbiology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Dermatology, Preventive and Social Medicine, etc.

2. Scope

2.1 Provision of basic information on modes of transmission and prevention of HIVorAIDS, ANC for promoting behavioral change and reducing vulnerability.

2.2 Preventive health education.

2.3 Psychosocial support.

2.4 Referral and linkages.

2.5 Monitoring and supervision.

2.6 Training of existing staff.

2.7 ICTCs can be classified into two types:

a) Fixed-facility ICTCs

b) Mobile ICTCs

2.8 Fixed-facility ICTCs:

Clinical Establishments Act Standards for Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre CEA orICTC

2.8.2 A fixed-facility ICTC can be of two types:

a) “Stand-alone”: ICTC having a full-time counsellor and laboratory technician who undertake HIV counselling and testing. Such facilities exist in medical colleges and district hospitals, and in some sub district hospitals.

b) “Facility-integrated”: ICTC which does not have full-time staff and provides HIV counselling and testing as a service along with other services. Existing staff such as the auxiliary nurse midwife (ANM)orstaff nurseorhealth visitororlaboratory technician (LT)orpharmacist are expected to undertake HIV counselling and testing. Such ICTCs will usually be established in facilities that do not have a very large client load and where it would be uneconomical to establish a stand-alone ICTC.

c) Such facilities are 24-hour PHCs as well as private sectorornot-for-profit hospitals, private laboratories, public sector organization-run hospitals or facilities, and in the NGO sector.

Norms for Setting up an ICTC

1. Government health sector

Appendix 1

An ICTC can be set up in any government health facility such as a medical college, district hospital, sub-district hospital, community health centre (CHC) or a 24-hour primary health centre (PHC) which caters to a population of 30,000– 40,000 and has:

a) a minimum of 30 beds,

b) >50 deliveries in a month, or

c) a TB microscopy centre.

2. Privateornot-for-profit sector

ICTCs can be set up in the privateornot-for-profit sector in a facility which meets any of the criteria given below:

a) Maternity homesorhospitals with >50 deliveries in a month in “A” and “B” category

b) Districts and >100 deliveries in a month in “C” and “D” category districts;

c) Hospitalsorclinics which treat >100 TB patients in a month;

d) Hospitalsorclinics which have a case load of >100 sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in a month;

e) Diagnostic laboratories which perform >150 diagnostic HIV tests in a month;

f) Industrial zones that employ a large number of people, particularly migrantsorcasual

g) Labour on an informalorcontractual basis.

3. Public sectororother government departments

ICTCs can be set up by public sector organizationsorother government departments.

Clinical Establishments Act Standards for Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre CEA orICTC

Some suggested locations are:

a) Railway stations and bus terminals located at major junctions on trunk routes and

b) handle a large volume of passengers every day;

c) Central prisons with a large number of inmates;

d) Health facilities run by StateorCentral Police OrganizationsorArmed Forces;

e) Health facilities run by public sector organizations catering to large volumes of

a. migrant workers;

f) Health facilities run by public sector organizations which handle >100 deliveries in amonth or have a TB microscopy centre;

g) Public sector organizations such as those in the mining industry which employ large number of persons, particularly migrantsorcasual labour;

h) University campuses.

4. NGO sector

a) Hot spots such as dhabas, halting points on highways, markets, fairs, etc. where there is a congregation of high-risk groups and their clients;

b) TB microscopy centresorReproductive and Child Health (RCH) centres run by NGOs.

An ICTC may be located in health facilities owned by the government, in the privateornot for- profit sector, in public sector organizationsorother government departments such as the Railways, Employees’ State Insurance Department (ESID), etc. and in sectors where nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have a presence. In the health facility, the ICTC should be well coordinated with the Department of Medicine, Microbiology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Psychiatry, Dermatology, Preventive and Social Medicine, etc. As the HIV test is a relatively low- cost test and since the risk perception is generally low, travelling a long distance to get tested could be a strong disincentive. Therefore, it is important to ensure that facilities for counselling and testing be located as close to the people as possible. ICTCs should ideally be located such that they provide maximum access to at- riskorvulnerable populations.

Client

“Self-referred clients”

“Provider- referred clients”

Seeking knowledge of the HIV status is voluntary. The decision to pursue testing for HIV must be made by the client who seeks counselling and testing services.

A person seeking health-care services, including in an ICTC, is a client and not a patient. Patients are considered passive recipients of treatmentorcareorhospitalization, whereas clients are “consumers” who make a choice whether or not to avail of a certain service.

“Self-referred clients” or direct walk-in clients are clients who present themselves at the ICTC of their own volition and free will. The motivation to visit and avail of ICTC services could be based on individual risk behaviour or information and advice received, for example, from a newspaper advertisement, a friend, sexual partner or NGO.

“Provider-referred clients” are clients who are referred by health- care providers to the ICTC for HIV counselling and testing based on clinical symptoms suggestive of an HIV infection. An HIV test as part of the medical investigation can be beneficial for their ongoing medical care and treatment. The decision to undergo an HIV test is voluntary but should be encouraged in view of the clinical benefits. Not undergoing an HIV test should not lead to withholding required medical investigations or operations.

Confidential Information gathered during counselling must not be shared with others. The HIV test result must be reported only to the client

unless the client states the desire to share the test result with a family member, partner or close friend. Confidentiality is defined as the state of being “private”. Maintaining the client’s privacy by restricting access to personal and confidential information, especially HIV test results, demonstrates sensitivity towards and respect for the basic rights of the client.

Informed The client agrees to HIV testing through giving hisorher informed

consent for HIV testing

consent. Informed consent is a deliberate and autonomous permission given by a client to a health-care provider to proceed with the proposed HIV test procedure. This permission is based on an adequate understanding of the advantages, risks, potential consequences and implications of an HIV test result,

Clinical Establishments Act Standards for Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre CEA orICTC

which could be both positive and negative. This permission is entirely the choice of the client and can never be implied or presumed.

Informed

The law gives paramount importance to the best interests of the child. In the context of HIVorAIDS, the best interests of the child are served by promoting access to information and services including counselling and testing services. Whenever possible, minors areencouraged to involve their parentsorguardians in supervising their health care. However, unwillingness to inform parentsorguardians should not interfere with the minor’s access to information and services. Access to ICTC services should be available to children and young people under the age of 18

years based on an assessment of their evolving capacities and their ability to comprehend the nature and implications of HIVorAIDS and an HIV test result. It is the role of the trained counsellor to assess these abilities.

However, the informed consent of parentsorguardians is required prior to testing minors for HIV.

Introduction

From its gradual evolution through the 18th and 19th centuries, the hospital has come of age only recently during the past 50 years or so, the concept of today’s hospital contrasting fundamentally from the old idea of a hospital as no more than a place for the treatment of the sick. With the wide coverage of every aspect of human welfare as part of health care- like physical, mental and social wellbeing, a reach out to the community, training of health workers, biosocial researches, etc- the health care services have undergone a steady metamorphosis.

A hospital is an integral part of a social and medical organization, the function of which is to provide for the population complete health care, both curative and preventive, and whose out-patient services reach out to the family and its home environment; the hospital is also a center for the training of health workers and for biosocial research.

The society’s health is influenced by the accessibility, affordability, quality, availability and utilization of health services.

Personal health services –

Personal health services are the services provided by the hospitals, health centers, clinics. The care provided has been traditionally classified into –

1. Promotion of health

2. Prevention of disease

3. Early diagnosis & treatment

4. Rehabilitation

The ayurvedic system is the very ancient life science which deals with the prevention and cure of the disease with pronature approach. Today is the era of life style disorders and Ayurveda have a unique approach towards these ailments. So the scope of the Ayurvedic hospital in today’s’ scenario is crucial.

The methodology adopted for this draft is based on the CCIM norms, IPHS guidelines and MSR for Ayurvedic hospitals in Gujarat.

In pursuance of notification of Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act, 2010 on 28th February 2012, National Council for Clinical Establishments has been constituted and notified on 20th March 2012. One of the mandate for the council is to develop minimum standards of clinical establishments for achieving the objectives of the act.

Defining minimum standards for different types of clinical establishments would facilitate implementation of Clinical Establishments, Act 2010. The registration and regulation of clinical establishments will ensure the delivery of assured quality in health services. The enforcement of regulation measure for clinical establishments raises the level of confidence and faith in Siddha Medicine. There has been misleading advertisements by fake establishments which needs to be curbed by introducing the transparent system of control over them. It would also help other related service agencies like health Insurance and CGHS for empanelment and enlisting their service through them.

The standards thus framed will provide clear, unambiguous minimum requirement for different category of clinical establishments. There are no exclusions. They are dependent on the basic functions of the clinic/hospital/provider. All sections mentioned are Yes and include both structure and basic processes.

Director has apprised about the notification issued for registration of clinical establishments and need for development of minimum standards of clinical establishments of various categories. Then, the survey report of Indian Medical Association has been examined through LCD projector to understand the prevailing standards of clinical establishments. The draft minimum standard of clinical establishments sent by Department of AYUSH was also examined to learn about the template and structure of the guidelines. The faculty members were sensitized regarding the process of clinical establishments of Siddha Medicines.

7. With inputs from faculty members, the core functions were modified and a copy of draft was given to all members. All the committee members were directed to refer the functions and prepare the standards for each sections assigned to them for submission after a week time.

8. Then, a meeting held to deliberate on the draft report prepared by the respective committee. Each committee has presented their sections and discussed

A.1.4. Meeting in Department of AYUSH

2) Categorisation of Hospitals

3) Conceptualisation of different sections of minimum standards

3. In the light of outcome of the meeting in Department of AYUSH, a draft standard prepared

4. Review comments obtained from selected private Siddha practitioners

A letter vide No.K.25023/12/2013-DCC (AYUSH) dated 7-2-2014 from Department of AYUSH conveyed the classification of AYUSH Clinical Establishments with approval of Secretary (AYUSH) and directed to revise the standards of AYUSH clinical establishments. Then a meeting of selected faculty members under the Chairmanship of Director conducted on 13-2-2014 for preparing the documents.
