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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

Washington, DC) The District Department of the Environment (DDOE) today released the results of the 2013 Follow-Up Spring Valley Public Health Study and Community Health Assessment Survey for Zip Codes 20016 and 20015. The study was conducted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Todays report builds upon the Public Health Screening Study conducted by Johns Hopkins investigators in 2007. The 2007 study found that Spring Valleys overall community health status was very good. However, additional analysis was recommended for several health outcomes. The current follow-up project consisted of three components:. 1) Community Outreach Survey for Zip Codes 20016 and 20015;. 2) Community Health Assessment; and. 3) Environment and Exposure Analysis. Hopkins researchers concluded that residents can be assured that community health is very good and most environmental indicators are in compliance with established standards or are similar to conditions in other urban areas. They also ...

Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) to combat obesity, heart disease, and cancer are major components of the Community Health Data Initiative. This dataset provides key health indicators for local communities and encourages dialogue about actions that can be taken to improve community health (e.g., obesity, heart disease, cancer). The CHSI report and dataset was designed not only for public health professionals but also for members of the community who are interested in the health of their community. The CHSI report contains over 200 measures for each of the 3,141 United States counties. Although CHSI presents indicators like deaths due to heart disease and cancer, it is imperative to understand that behavioral factors such as obesity, tobacco use, diet, physical activity, alcohol and drug use, sexual behavior and others substantially contribute to these deaths.. ...

CAM has been used in the state of Iowa for over 150 specific cases since June, 2005. The implementation of CAM has been a voluntary process, initiated by the farmer and implemented through a joint effort between the Coalition to Support Iowas Farmers (CSIF), the Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC), and faculty with Iowa State Universitys College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The use of CAM requires on on-site visit to assess and map community receptors and existing animal-related odor sources.. The mapped data is then brought to the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering where one of two faculty members implement CAM. A one-page report is generated and this report is given to the farmer, through a follow-up on-site visit with an IPIC staff member. At the conclusion of a CAM modeling run, a staff member from IPIC conducts a follow-up site visit with the farmer to explain results of CAM predictions. The estimated total expense (currently free to the farmer) to implement CAM is ...

A second overarching theme at the conference centered on health data. The biggest buzz was generated by the newly launched Community Health Data Initiative (CHDI), highlighted by Aneesh Chopra, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Office of Science and Technology Policy, The White House; and Todd Park, CTO of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).. The CHDI data set will ultimately consist of thousands of measures of health care quality, cost, access, and public health (e.g., obesity rates, smoking rates). It will include data produced for the Community Health Status Indicators, County Health Rankings, and State of the USA programs. Data will be available at the national, state, regional, and county levels, as well as by age, gender, race/ethnicity, and income (where available). This initiative is part of HHS.gov/OPEN, and is in search of a better name (vote here to rename the CHDI).. Useful health data abound, but tend to be tucked into nooks and crannies. The key is to unlock the mojo ...

Nomadic livestock production is the backbone of the economy of pastoral communities in the Karamoja cluster. However, widespread and uncontrolled livestock raiding is currently threatening the success of this enterprise. In fact, raiding has been named as the single most important impediment to the development of the cluster generally and particularly in the delivery of animal health services. Efforts are being made by national and international agencies to remedy the situation. One of these agencies is the CAPE Unit of OAU-IBARs PACE Programme whose mandate in the area includes the control animal diseases through community-based initiatives. Following the realisation of the negative impact of livestock raiding on animal health service delivery, the PACE with the assistance of the donor community, particularly REDSO, DFID and CDTF, initiated a Pastoral Community Harmonisation (PCH) project to find solutions to this problem in order to enable it fulfil its mandate. One of the steps taken in this ...
In three districts, a USAID-funded grant1 enabled ChildFund International to introduce a new method of contraceptives to rural areas through community-based distributors (CBDs). To meet growing demand, the injectable contraceptive Dep-Provera was added as a third option to condoms and contraceptive pills. In the context of human resource shortages, the provision of family planning services at the community level has shifted from health workers to CBDs. The project established a learning site through which other NGOs could witness best practices for CBDs, which has facilitated broader distribution of Depo-Provera.. The CBDs program has been instrumental in increasing the uptake of family planning services, with the number of users increasing over six-fold in just four years - from 1,822 in 2012 to 11,700 users in 2015. Ruth Mushili, a 33-year-old woman from Kamoba village commented, Access to family planning [before CBDs] was never easy. The distance to the facility used to discourage me and the ...
20172 A highpoint of the academic year is honoring the 2017 graduating class of Buckley Public Service Scholars.

These students uphold UNCs commitment to campus-community partnership. I am certain they will carry these civic values with them ...
Isolating genetic markers for crippling hereditary diseases is, without a doubt, a health innovation. So is manufacturing prosthetic limbs that respond to the neural stimuli of patient brains. But as one local neighborhood is determined to show, important health innovations dont always occur in the laboratory or in the hospital. Sometimes they occur when a community health project decides to sit down and listen to more than 1,500 residents talk about health issues in more than a dozen languages.. That is just one of the innovative health practices employed by the Building Healthy Communities Project in San Diegos City Heights neighborhood. Supported by a 10-year funding commitment from the California Endowment, the City Heights project is one of 14 neighborhoods involved in the statewide Building Healthy Communities Initiative. Steve Eldred, program manager at the California Endowment, said one of the main factors that makes this initiative so unique is a commitment to community health that is ...

HOUSEHOLD AND COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT. Assessing the impact of a humanitarian crisis on households requires information on; losses, coping strategies, income status, and immediate live saving and livelihood needs.

Similarly, information on damages to critical household and community infrastructure (such as farm land, irrigation systems, village to market roads etc.) pave the way for planning rehabilitation and rebuilding activities.

Community Health Track (CHT) residents are required to develop a longitudinal project that they design and implement during the course of training. Residents are encouraged to use the Community-Oriented Primary Care (COPC) model to perform a health needs assessment and problem prioritization in the local community to serve as the basis of their project. Trainees are guided through the COPC process during their Community Building Blocks rotation in the first year. Once a project focus is chosen at the end of the first year, residents are connected with one of the many CHT faculty members doing community work on this topic. This faculty member will serve as a project mentor for the remaining two years..

Further time in the third year is devoted to work on completing the project. Residents also may use elective time to work on their project.. By the end of their training, ...
The incidence of HIV infection in South Africa tops that of any nation in the world, with some 6 million of the countrys nearly 50 million residents infected. Sadly, young women - and particularly young pregnant women - suffer some of the highest rates of HIV infection. More than one-fourth of pregnant South African women are infected with the virus; in some communities, the infection rates are even higher.. But those infection rates might be reduced - and the overall health of children improved - through community-based peer counseling programs, according to a new study conducted by UCLAs Mary Jane Rotheram-Borus, the director of the UCLA Global Center for Children and Families at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, and her colleagues from Stellenbosch University in South Africa. A paper about the randomized controlled trial appears in the current edition of the journal PLoS One.. The study found that having specially trained lay community mothers from the Mentor Mother ...
UNITED NATIONS - U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said Wednesday that her early account of the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans in Benghazi was based on the initial intelligence community assessments and was always subject to review and updates.. She said she respects Republican Sen. John McCain, who has been critical of her, but says some of the statements hes made about me have been unfounded, but I look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him.. Her comments attributing the attacks to a mob enraged over an anti-Muslim video posted on YouTube were widely denounced by Republicans during the U.S. presidential campaign. The attack came on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States, and her critics said it was clearly a terrorist attack aimed at the anniversary. U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed.. The focus has fallen on Rice because she is a ...

In an exercise designed to show the importance of boundaries, for example, the teacher brings a live goldfish to class. The teacher explains, This goldfish looks out of its bowl every day wondering what it would be like to be free from its glass boundaries. Once the fish is free, he could go anywhere and do anything he wants. Well, today I am going to make this goldfishs dreams come true. The teacher then places the goldfish on the desk where it will likely wriggle and gasp for air. The teacher is directed to scoop up the goldfish and return it to its bowl after a brief period of uneasy tension and then ask students Why are boundaries important? Suggested answers include: They can be protective; allow a lot of freedom within a defined space; and make it easy to know what youre going to do and how youre going to act because you know your boundaries (Choosing the Best PATH, Leader Guide, p. 35). The teacher goes on to ask, How does this exercise apply to the areas of sexuality? ...

The French minister of education appointed a panel headed by Jean-Paul Fitoussi to inquire into economics teaching.[7] In 2000, the panel called for limited reform.[8] Articles associated with the movement were published in the Post-Autistic Economics Newsletter from September 2000. This electronic newsletter became the Post-Autistic Economics Review and, since 2008, has existed as the peer-reviewed journal Real-World Economics Review.[9] Several responses to the French students' open letter were also published in Le Monde. A counter-petition signed by 15 French economists was published in October 2000.[10] Robert Solow adhered to the "main thesis" of the French students' petition, but criticised the "opaque and almost incomprehensible" debate that followed among academics.[11] Olivier Blanchard also published a response defending mainstream economics.[9] Other notable economists, such as Steve Keen and James K. Galbraith, wrote elsewhere in support of the French students.[12] ...
