Programs involving CHW in China, Brazil, Iran and Bangladesh. 2 "Task shifting" of primary care functions from professional health workers to community health workers is considered to be a means to make more efficient use of the human resources currently available and improving the health of millions at reasonable cost.

*  Promotora
A 'promotora' is a lay Hispanic/Latino community member who receives specialized training to provide basic health education in the community without being a professional health care worker. Thus, promotoras serve as liaisons between their community, health professionals, human and social service organizations. From there, the promotora model spread across Mexico to other Latin American countries and eventually to the United States. 5 While the promotora model was in use in Latin American countries since 1960, it did not gain attention in the United States until the mid-1960s to the 1970s. However, by definition, community health workers model used in other countries is somewhat different than the one of a promotora in the United States. Promotoras have gained significant importance in the way that care is delivered in the United States for Latinos in the last two decades. Studies have shown that promotoras impact the health outcomes of Latinos by ...

Richard Knox NPR. But even in Massachusetts, many people still don't know they have HIV or they wait too long to get tested. That's why there's a big push now to do what AIDS experts are calling "test and treat" — reach out to people who might be infected, get them tested, and if they're HIV-positive get them into treatment as soon as possible. For most of the past 13 years, however, Jackson hasn't taken his HIV medication every day. A community health worker named Greg Jules makes sure Jackson takes his medicine and otherwise takes care of himself.

Health worker with supplies in a clinic near Dakar, Senegal. See all our coverage of the 2012 Global Family Planning Summit here. During last year’s International Conference on Family Planning, IntraHealth promoted health worker empowerment with the slogan “Family Planning: It Takes a Health Worker.” We had the phrase printed on posters and buttons, proudly displayed at our booth and on our lapels. We posited that all of the contraceptive technologies in the world will not make a difference if there are not skilled health workers to deliver them. Visitors to our booth, seeing our theme, sometimes laughed and said, “Well, technically it doesn’t take a health worker to put on a condom or promote abstinence.”. During the ...

But instead of guns and bullets, his armament consisted of condoms and other contraceptives. Brunard’s fight is to save lives, and lower the rate of sexually transmitted diseases in Haiti. On a recent outing, Brunard and a few of his colleagues at Profamil hopped on the back of an early model white Toyota Land Rover as they set out to address a community group.

The backbone of effective health systems. Simply put, without frontline health workers, there would be no health care for millions of children and their families in the developing world. At a baby clinic in Ethiopia, 3-month old Hailu is weighed, vaccinated and given vitamin A by a frontline health worker. Photo by Jenny Matthews for Save the Children. Frontline health workers are the backbone of effective health systems – they are often based in the community and come from the community they serve, they play a critical role in providing a local context for proven health solutions, and they connect families and communities to the health system. Frontline health workers are those directly providing services where they are most needed, especially in remote and rural areas. Many are community health workers and midwives, though they can also include local pharmacists, nurses and doctors who serve in community ...

It is a cold rainy day, and a pregnant mother’s water has just broken. She is a community health worker CHW for the Ruhiira Millennium Villages. This lady is a link between the community and the health centers. I spent a year working with the Ruhiira Millennium Villages project, and I learned many things. I used to hear about how difficult it was for pregnant mothers to travel to health centers, but never had I seen just how long the distance would be. For some, this means walking across hills, running down slopes, jumping streams and walking past swamps—thus preventing many pregnant women from accessing health centers on a regular basis. The CHW promotes the use of birthing plans, intermittent preventive treatment of malaria during pregnancy and infancy, ...

(1/653) The dangers of managerial perversion: quality assurance in primary health care.

The promotion of primary health care (PHC) at the Alma Ata conference has been followed by a variety of managerial initiatives in support of the development of PHC. One of the more promising vehicles has been the implementation of quality assurance mechanisms. This paper reviews recent examples of this genre and argues that the thrust of both primary health care and quality assurance are in danger of being distorted by a rather antiquated approach to management.  (+info)

(2/653) Micro-level planning using rapid assessment for primary health care services.

This paper describes the use of a rapid assessment technique in micro-level planning for primary health care services which has been developed in India. This methodology involves collecting household-level data through a quick sample survey to estimate client needs, coverage of services and unmet need, and using this data to formulate micro-level plans aimed at improving service coverage and quality for a primary health centre area. Analysis of the data helps to identify village level variations in unmet need and develop village profiles from which general interventions for overall improvement of service coverage and targeted interventions for selected villages are identified. A PHC area plan is developed based on such interventions. This system was tried out in 113 villages of three PHC centres of a district in Gujarat state of India. It demonstrated the feasibility and utility of this approach. However, it also revealed the barriers in the institutionalization of the system on a wider scale. The proposed micro-level planning methodology using rapid assessment would improve client-responsiveness of the health care system and provide a basis for increased decentralization. By focusing attention on under-served areas, it would promote equity in the use of health services. It would also help improve efficiency by making it possible to focus efforts on a small group of villages which account for most of the unmet need for services in an area. Thus the proposed methodology seems to be a feasible and an attractive alternative to the current top-down, target-based health planning in India.  (+info)

(3/653) Assessing and planning home-based care for persons with AIDS.

The HIV/AIDS pandemic continues to gather momentum in many developing countries, increasing the already heavy burden on health care facilities. As a result, donors, implementing partners and communities are beginning to create home-based care programmes to provide care for persons with HIV/AIDS. This paper recommends reorienting this home care provision as a service founded in, and coming from, the community rather than the health system. A methodology, in the form of an assessment matrix, is provided to facilitate the assessment of a community's capacity to provide care for people with AIDS. The focus is on rapid assessment methods using, where possible, readily available information to clearly and systematically define current circumstances. The matrix created for a specific community is then used in the development of an action plan with interventions prioritized and tailored to local needs. A case study from a hypothetical developing country, where HIV/AIDS is a significant problem, is used to illustrate the process.  (+info)

(4/653) Knowledge, attitudes and practices during a community-level ivermectin distribution campaign in Guatemala.

Community acceptance and participation are essential for the success of mass ivermectin chemotherapy programmes for onchocerciasis (river blindness). To explore the local understanding of the purpose of ivermectin and willingness to continue taking the drug, we performed questionnaire surveys in four communities with hyperendemic onchocerciasis after each of three ivermectin treatment rounds. More than 100 respondents participated in each KAP survey, representing the heads of 30% of the households in each community. The respondents rarely stated that the goal of the ivermectin treatment programme was to prevent visual loss. Instead, they said they were taking the drug for their general well-being, to cure the onchocercal nodule (filaria), or to cure the microfilaria, a term newly introduced by agents of the treatment programme. The principal reason identified for refusal to take ivermectin was anxiety about drug-related adverse reactions, and there were marked differences between communities in acceptance of treatment. In one community over 50% of residents initially refused to take ivermectin, although participation rates improved somewhat after programmatic adjustments. We recommend that ivermectin distribution programmes establish surveillance activities to detect where acceptance is poor, so that timely and community-specific adjustments may be devised to improve participation.  (+info)

(5/653) Primary health care, community participation and community-financing: experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal.

Although community involvement in health related activities is generally acknowledged by international and national health planners to be the key to the successful organization of primary health care, comparatively little is known about its potential and limitations. Drawing on the experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal, this paper reports on research undertaken to compare and contrast the scope and extent of community participation in the delivery of primary health care in a community run and financed health post and a state run and financed health post. Unlike many other health posts in Nepal these facilities do provide effective curative services, and neither of them suffer from chronic shortage of drugs. However, community-financing did not appear to widen the scope and the extent of participation. Villagers in both communities relied on the health post for the treatment of less than one-third of symptoms, and despite the planners' intentions, community involvement outside participation in benefits was found to be very limited.  (+info)

(6/653) Developing a plan for primary health care facilities in Soweto, South Africa. Part I: Guiding principles and methods.

The new political era in South Africa offers unique opportunities for the development of more equitable health care policies. However, resource constraints are likely to remain in the foreseeable future, and efficiency therefore remains an important concern. This article describes the guiding principles and methods used to develop a coherent and objective plan for comprehensive primary health care facilities in Soweto. The article begins with an overview of the context within which the research was undertaken. Problems associated with planning in transition are highlighted, and a participatory research approach is recommended as a solution to these problems. The article goes on to describe how the research methods were developed and applied in line with the principles of participatory research. The methods were essentially rapid appraisal techniques which included group discussions, detailed checklists, observation, record reviews and the adaptation of international and local guidelines for service planning. It is suggested that these methods could be applied to other urban areas in South Africa and elsewhere, and that they are particularly appropriate in periods of transition when careful facilitation of dialogue between stakeholders is required in tandem with the generation of rapid results for policy-makers.  (+info)

(7/653) Health policy development in wartime: establishing the Baito health system in Tigray, Ethiopia.

This paper documents health experiences and the public health activities of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF). The paper provides background data about Tigray and the emergence of its struggle for a democratic Ethiopia. The origins of the armed struggle are described, as well as the impact of the conflict on local health systems and health status. The health-related activities and public health strategies of the TPLF are described and critiqued in some detail, particular attention is focused on the development of the baito system, the emergent local government structures kindled by the TPLF as a means of promoting local democracy, accountability, and social and economic development. Important issues arise from this brief case-study, such as how emerging health systems operating in wartime can ensure that not only are basic curative services maintained, but preventive and public health services are developed. Documenting the experiences of Tigray helps identify constraints and possibilities for assisting health systems to adapt and cope with ongoing conflict, and raises possibilities that in their aftermath they leave something which can be built upon and further developed. It appears that promoting effective local government may be an important means of promoting primary health care.  (+info)

(8/653) Sustaining malaria prevention in Benin: local production of bednets.

Through a Benin-Canada participatory research initiative which included both Benin and Canadian non-governmental organizations, a local capacity to produce and market bednets for the prevention of malaria was developed. The development process began following a community-based assessment of local needs and skills. All materials for the manufacture and distribution of the bednets were obtained locally with the exception of the netting which was imported from Canada. The sustainability of the enterprise is enhanced by the community's recognition of the importance of malaria and the culturally acceptable practice of bednet use.  (+info)


What type of health insurance should I get?


  • I am a male and a non smoker, but I have had Epilepsy since I was in high school. I need a health insurance for my health. However, I do not know much which type of the health insurance Health group, Community Health Plan or KPS health plan is good for me in Washington State in the US. Now I don't have a job and I am independent. Would someone give me hand?
  • Don't depend on laypeople from Yahoo for this kind of advice - in Washington State you should be able to locate patient advocacy groups who can help you through the minefield. Your goal should be to avert financial catastrophe in case of major illness/accident. The common mistake is trying to cover the small expenses that could be easily covered out-of-pocket, at the expense of your catastrophic coverage. One common dirty trick of the insurance industry is putting lifetime or even per-occurrence caps on your coverage. For example- some chronic ailments might require $100,000 a year in treatment for years. You may have a high enough yearly cap to cover it ... but then later find out your coverage expires after only a couple of years, leaving you totally stuck (because no other company will pick up the pre-existing condition). So consult with somebody who really knows the situation in your state - best of luck to you.


What is the difference between public health and community health?


  • What is the difference between public health and community health? A. Public health involves the health of the nation, and community health involves doctors and other health professionals in a community. B. Public health protects the health of everyone, and community health protects the health of all those in a particular community. C. Public health gives free health care to individuals, and community health keeps the food, water supply, and general environment healthy for the community. D. Public health is concerned with the health of individuals, and community health is concerned with overall health statistics.
  • A. Public health looks at everyone from all over. We (I'm an epidemiologist) are concerned with things that may be coming down the pike and hit all of us (like bird flu, etc.). Community health mostly involves doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals that tailor interventions to a particular community's needs, and they generally don't plan out for "the bigger picture", although they do a heck a job in their locales, since they know it better.

How do I become a community health nurse?


  • I am a new registered nurse and I am curious how I can become a community health RN. When I say new, I mean brand spanking new and still haven't had a year worth of experience as a nurse. I might also add that I am having trouble finding work as a newly licensed RN in the state of GA and I really don't even have the money or means to relocate to another area with promising prospects.
  • community health nursing is a field of nursing that is a blend of primary health care and nursing practice with public health nursing. The community health nurse conducts a continuing and comprehensive practice that is preventive, curative, and rehabilitative. The philosophy of care is based on the belief that care directed to the individual, the family, and the group contributes to the health care of the population as a whole. Participation of all consumers of health care is encouraged in the development of community activities that contribute to the promotion of, education about, and maintenance of good health. These activities require comprehensive health programs that pay special attention to social and ecologic influences and specific populations at risk. for jobs,visit: http://www.hospitaljobsonline.com/JPMoreInfo.aspx?JobID=52587279&AffID=254849


Are there any low cost community health centers that do not practice abortions?


  • I know that Planned Parenthood is one of the largest low-cost community health centers, and with county hospital clinics and other low-cost clinics having long waiting lists and strict applicant requirements, where can I turn for low-cost basic health without funding abortion? This is MY personal choice, so please, don't bash, just answer or move on. Thank you.
  • It depends on where you live. Check with the Salvation Army in your area. They will probably know where to find one.


What are the similarities and differences between the field or approach of community health and public health?


  • Also, how would the two approaches be similar or different with regard to preventing underage drinking? I know that public health concerns the health of everyone and involves activities such as surveillance, monitoring and enforcement of health laws and policies to ensure the health of the population and community health is concerned with a certain geographic location or characteristic of the population. Community health is usually involved with more health promotion, health education and health services stuff. However, I'm not quite sure how the two fields or approaches would address preventing underage drinking. If you have any comments or advice, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  • Although both public health and law enforcement protect the public, the approach and nature of the work performed in the two disciplines are quite different. The similarities and differences in public health and law enforcement investigations have to be understood and coordinated so that both can be most effective ( Table ). Public health investigations generally take an inductive approach. Persons are interviewed, data are collected, hypotheses are developed to explain transmission, and epidemiological and laboratory studies are conducted to test these hypotheses. If the studies confirm the hypothesis, prevention and control strategies are developed, implemented, and evaluated. All this work is held to the standard of scientific peer review, generally through presentation of data at scientific meetings and publication in a scientific journal.


What should I look for in a good health plan for my wife and I?


  • We are late twenties, married two years and really need a decent family health plan. We have no kids yet. What specific benefits/costs should I be looking at? We can probably only afford $200-$300 a month, sadly.
  • If you can find a plan through your employer, it would be the cheapest. If you are buying on your own then you will have some additional things to look at: 1. are either of you planning any major surgeries or health events (pregnancy) 2. how often do you typically go to the doctor (1? 10?) 3. Do you need specialist care (ob? specialists?) 4. How much money do you have available in an emergency 5. Any routine medications (birth control? allergy? special condition?) Plans will have info such as co-pays (what you pay when you go in) and then also things like co-insurance. Pay attention to these as it will help you identify how much money you will be paying in addition to your health insurance. Some people pick plans that have higher upfront costs (copays, drugs, etc) with lower monthly costs because they rarely go to the doc and it is cheaper to pay those costs out of pocket. Others find insurance that is more per month but the day to day is cheaper. Read the fine print- will previous conditions be a problem? Is there a limit to how much the insurance will pay? Is there a drug plan. Good luck.
