Donor funding for health reform in Africa: is non-project assistance the right prescription? (1/136)

During the past 10 years, donors have recognized the need for major reforms to achieve sustainable development. Using non-project assistance they have attempted to leverage reforms by offering financing conditioned on the enactment of reform. The experience of USAID's health reform programmes in Niger and Nigeria suggest these programmes have proved more difficult to implement than expected. When a country has in place a high level of fiscal accountability and high institutional capacity, programmes of conditioned non-project assistance may be more effective in achieving reforms than traditional project assistance. However, when these elements are lacking, as they were in Niger, non-project assistance offers nothing inherently superior than traditional project assistance. Non-project assistance may be most effective for assisting the implementation of policy reforms adopted by the host government.  (+info)

The impact of alternative cost recovery schemes on access and equity in Niger. (2/136)

The authors examine accessibility and the sustainability of quality health care in a rural setting under two alternative cost recovery methods, a fee-for-service method and a type of social financing (risk-sharing) strategy based on an annual tax+fee-for-service. Both methods were accompanied by similar interventions aimed at improving the quality of primary health services. Based on pilot tests of cost recovery in the non-hospital sector in Niger, the article presents results from baseline and final survey data, as well as from facility utilization, cost, and revenue data collected in two test districts and a control district. Cost recovery accompanied by quality improvements increases equity and access to health care and the type of cost recovery method used can make a difference. In Niger, higher access for women, children, and the poor resulted from the tax+fee method, than from the pure fee-for-service method. Moreover, revenue generation per capita under the tax+fee method was two times higher than under the fee-for-service method, suggesting that the prospects of sustainability were better under the social financing strategy. However, sustainability under cost recovery and improved quality depends as much on policy measures aimed at cost containment, particularly for drugs, as on specific cost recovery methods.  (+info)

Protecting the poor under cost recovery: the role of means testing. (3/136)

In African health sectors, the importance of protecting the very poor has been underscored by increased reliance on user fees to help finance services. This paper presents a conceptual framework for understanding the role means testing can play in promoting equity under health care cost recovery. Means testing is placed in the broader context of targeting and contrasted with other mechanisms. Criteria for evaluating outcomes are established and used to analyze previous means testing experience in Africa. A survey of experience finds a general pattern of informal, low-accuracy, low-cost means testing in Africa. Detailed household data from a recent cost recovery experiment in Niger, West Africa, provides an unusual opportunity to observe outcomes of a characteristically informal means testing system. Findings from Niger suggest that achieving both the revenue raising and equity potential of cost recovery in sub-Saharan Africa will require finding ways to improve informal means testing processes.  (+info)

Improving quality through cost recovery in Niger. (4/136)

New evidence on the quality of health care from public services in Niger is discussed in terms of the relationships between quality, costs, cost-effectiveness and financing. Although structural attributes of quality appeared to improve with the pilot project in Niger, significant gaps in the implementation of diagnostic and treatment protocols were observed, particularly in monitoring vital signs, diagnostic examination and provider-patient communications. Quality improvements required significant investments in both fixed and variable costs; however, many of these costs were basic input requirements for operation. It is likely that optimal cost-effectiveness of services was not achieved because of the noted deficiencies in quality. In the test district of Boboye, the revenues from the copayments alone covered about 34% of the costs of medicines or about 20% of costs of drugs and administration. In Say, user fees covered about 50-55% of the costs of medicines or 35-40% of the amount spent on medicines and cost-recovery administration. In Boboye, taxes plus the additional copayments covered 120-180% of the cost of medicines, or 75-105% of the cost of medicines plus administration of cost recovery. Decentralized management and legal conditions in the pilot districts appeared to provide the necessary structure to ensure that the revenues and taxes collected would be channelled to pay for quality improvements.  (+info)

Increasing the utilization of cost-effective health services through changes in demand. (5/136)

Attaining efficiency in a health care system with a budget constraint involves increasing the utilization of the most cost-effective services. This can be achieved by adjustments to prices, cost curves, or demand curves. In this paper, the potential for demand curve adjustments is examined by selecting two apparently cost-effective services (prenatal care and childhood immunization against tuberculosis), and analyzing the factors explaining their utilization. Data from recent household surveys in Burkina Faso and Niger are used. A multivariate analysis of utilization employs income, price, and taste variables. Utilization is highly sensitive to the distance which must be travelled to the health facility, a price, and taste variables. Utilization is highly sensitive to the distance which must be travelled to the health facility, a price variable. Members of certain ethnic groups tend to use the services less, other things being equal. The importance of demand-side factors like ethnicity points to certain kinds of policy interventions like information, education and communication activities which could increase the utilization of cost-effective services.  (+info)

User fees and patient behaviour: evidence from Niamey National Hospital. (7/136)

Evidence is presented on the effects of price changes on the delay before seeking care and on referral status in a sample of hospital patients in Niger. Price changes are measured as differences across patients at one hospital in whether or not they pay for care, rather than as differences in prices across several hospitals. User fees are charged, but the fee system allows exemptions for some payor categories such as government employees, students, and indigent patients. Evidence is also presented on the effect of income on the delay before seeking care and referral status. The analysis demonstrates a technical point on whether household consumption or current income is a more appropriate measure of income. The analysis shows that user fees affect patient behaviour, but the effects are not the same for outpatients and inpatients. Outpatients who pay for care wait longer before seeking care, but inpatients do not. Inpatients who pay for care are more likely to be referred, but outpatients are not. Patients with more income wait less time to seek care and are less likely to be referred than other patients. Further, household consumption explains patient behaviour better than current income.  (+info)

Epidemiology of bacterial meningitis in Niamey, Niger, 1981-96. (8/136)

In the African meningitis belt the importance of endemic meningitis is not as well recognized as that of epidemics of meningococcal meningitis that occur from time to time. Using retrospective surveillance, we identified a total of 7078 cases of laboratory-diagnosed bacterial meningitis in Niamey, Niger, from 1981 to 1996. The majority (57.7%) were caused by Neisseria meningitidis, followed by Streptococcus pneumoniae (13.2%) and Haemophilus influenzae b (Hib) (9.5%). The mean annual incidence of bacterial meningitis was 101 per 100,000 population (70 per 100,000 during 11 non-epidemic years) and the average annual mortality rate was 17 deaths per 100,000. Over a 7-year period (including one major epidemic year) for which data were available, S. pneumoniae and Hib together caused more meningitis deaths than N. meningitidis. Meningitis cases were more common among males and occurred mostly during the dry season. Serogroup A caused 85.6% of meningococcal meningitis cases during the period investigated; three-quarters of these occurred among children aged < 15 years, and over 40% among under-5-year-olds. Both incidence and mortality rates were highest among infants aged < 1 year. In this age group, Hib was the leading cause of bacterial meningitis, followed by S. pneumoniae. The predominant cause of meningitis in persons aged 1-40 years was N. meningitidis. Use of the available vaccines against meningitis due to N. meningitidis, S. pneumoniae, and Hib could prevent substantial endemic illness and deaths in sub-Saharan Africa, and potentially prevent recurrent meningococcal epidemics.  (+info)

The current World Health Organization recommendations for response during measles epidemics focus on case management rather than outbreak response vaccination (ORV) campaigns, which may occur too late to impact morbidity and mortality and have a high cost per case prevented. Here, we explore the potential impact of an ORV campaign conducted during the 2003-2004 measles epidemic in Niamey, Niger. We measured the impact of this intervention and also the potential impact of alternative strategies. Using a unique geographical, epidemiologic and demographic dataset collected during the epidemic, we developed an individual-based simulation model. We estimate that a median of 7.6% [4.9-8.9] of cases were potentially averted as a result of the outbreak response, which vaccinated approximately 57% (84 563 of an estimated 148 600) of children in the target age range (6-59 months), 23 weeks after the epidemic started. We found that intervening early (up to 60 days after the start of the epidemic) and ...

Reposted from World Vaccine Congress. What technology has had the biggest impact on vaccine supply chains over the last 10 years?. There is no magic bullet that has revolutionized vaccine supply chains over the last ten years. Instead, a range of technologies working in concert with one another have contributed to more effective and efficient supply chains. Developments in cold chain technology, data gathering and analytics, and even in transportation have all had significant impacts on the availability of vaccines. These technologies all must work in-sync with each other to provide both the infrastructure and information needed to ensure vaccines are available where and when they are needed and in the right condition. We must also ensure these technologies are appropriate and available at all levels of the supply chain. As a global community, we have greatly improved the systems, infrastructure and financing to ensure sufficient vaccines reach low-resource countries, but the real impact comes ...

Purpose - The aim of this paper is to develop a research agenda for risk and supply chain management. This is achieved by reviewing the literature on supply chain risk and locating it within the general literature on risk. Design/methodology/approach - A review of the general literature on risk and the specific literature on supply chain risk was undertaken.. Findings - The paper shows that there are a number of key debates in the general literature on risk, especially in terms of qualitative versus quantitative approaches, which need to be recognised by those seeking to apply risk theory and risk management approaches to supply chains. In addition, the paper shows that the application of risk theory to supply chain management is still in its early stages and that the models of supply chain risk which have been proposed need to be tested empirically.. Research limitations/implications - This is a literature review and, therefore, is based on secondary rather than primary sources.. Practical ...
Supply chain assumes a unique business process without inter-company boundaries. Each supply chain partner is important for achievement of customer requirements. On the one hand, supply chain is an inexhaustible source of competitive advantage, created by the companies, which constitute it. However, on the other hand, due to its complexness, supply chain is an easy target of numerous factors, which jeopardize its competitiveness. Some of those factors are: turbulence, deliberate threats, external pressures, resource limits, sensitivity, and supplier/customer disruptions. Successful dealing with those factors assumes establishment of mechanisms for increasing supply chain resilience. Many researches indicate that some factors have greater influence on supply chain disruption and discontinuance. If those factors can be isolated, it will be easier to manage them or to avoid their influence. Therefore, the objective of the research presented in this paper is identification of the most frequent ...
Large companies can segment their supply chains to improve profits and reduce supply chain fragility. For high-volume commodity items with low demand uncertainty, the supply chain should have specialized and decentralized capacity. For its fast-moving basic products (typically, low margin), it may be worthwhile to … source from multiple low-cost suppliers. … This reduces cost while also reducing the impact of a disruption at any single location, because other suppliers are producing the same item. For low-volume products with high demand uncertainty (typically, high margin), companies can take a different approach and keep supply chains flexible, with capacity that is centralized to aggregate demand. Even when production is centralized, the supply chain needs to be flexible to avoid concentrating risk in a single plant or production line. … Practically speaking, this level of segmentation may not be feasible for small companies lacking sufficient scale. … Supply chains can and should ...

malnourished, including some 87,000 severely malnourished. The most affected regions are Diffa, Maradi, Zinder, and Tahoua. Acute severe malnutrition has increased to 3.2 percent from 2.1 percent a year ago. Throughout the country, with the exception of the Diffa region, children younger than three are twice as affected by acute malnutrition than older children (21.7 percent compared with 9.5 percent). More boys than girls are malnourished. The rate is higher than one death per 10,000 children a day but remains below the humanitarian communitys emergency threshold of two deaths per 10,000 children a day, except in the Zinder region. Similar to 2009, nearly half of Nigers children are chronically undernourished and lacking life-sustaining nutrients.

Background There are 146 million underweight children in the developing world, which contribute to up to half of the worlds child deaths. In high burden regions for malnutrition, the treatment of individual children is limited by available resources. Here, we evaluate a large-scale distribution of a nutritional supplement on the prevention of wasting. Methods and Findings A new ready-to-use food (RUF) was developed as a diet supplement for children under three. The intervention consisted of six monthly distributions of RUF during the 2007 hunger gap in a district of Maradi region, Niger, for approximately 60,000 children (length: 60-85 cm). At each distribution, all children over 65 cm had their Mid-Upper Arm Circumference (MUAC) recorded. Admission trends for severe wasting (WFH|70% NCHS) in Maradi, 2002-2005 show an increase every year during the hunger gap. In contrast, in 2007, throughout the period of the distribution, the incidence of severe acute malnutrition (MUAC|110 mm) remained at extremely
About ten years ago, a few organizations begin exploring novel ways to address immunization supply chain issues, both long-standing-high rates of vaccine waste, overburdened health workers, and inaccurate data-and emerging-lack of storage capacity, sensitivity to cold, and poor fridge maintenance.

Last month, Germany hosted the G20 Labour and Employment Ministerial Meeting. In their final declaration, ministers recognised that labour rights abuses cannot be part of the competition and made a commitment to strengthen compliance with fundamental principles and rights at work in global supply chains. They called for accelerated action to end child labour and modern slavery in global supply chains and underlined the responsibility of businesses to conduct due diligence to ensure that human rights are respected in their operations.. Last but not least, the ministers reiterated their support for a decision taken last year by the International Labour Conference-the global summit of governments, workers, and employers - to consider whether a new, legally binding international standard on decent work on global supply chains is needed.. These commitments are important, as they move the international agenda on global supply chains forward and bring on board allies from within the G20-a group ...
Level: MSc. Research area/discipline: Software Engineering. Prerequisites: Short description: A Digital Twin is a digital equivalent of a real-life object of which it mirrors its behaviour and states over its lifetime in a virtual space. Using Digital Twins as a central means for supply chain management enables the decoupling of physical flows from its planning and control. As a consequence, supply chain operations can be remotely controlled based on (near) real-time digital information instead of having to rely on direct observation and manual tasks on-site. This allows supply chain managers to act immediately in case of (expected) quality deviations and to simulate effects of interventions based on real-life data. Objectives:. The main objective of this research, which may comprise multiple thesis projects, is to investigate the implications of virtualization on food and flowers supply chain management. It especially aims to study how Digital Twins can advance quality management of perishable ...
Integrated supply chain models provide an opportunity to optimize costs and production times in the supply chain while taking into consideration the many steps in the production and delivery process and the many constraints on time, shared resources, and throughput capabilities. In this work, mixed integer linear programming (MILP) models are developed to describe the manufacturing plant, consolidation transport, and distribution center components of the supply chain. Initial optimization results are obtained for each of these models. Additionally, an integrated model including a single plant, multiple consolidation transport vehicles, and a single distribution center is formulated and initial results are obtained. All models are implemented and optimized for their given objectives using a standard MILP solver. Initial optimization results suggest that it is intractable to solve problems of relevant scale using standard MILP solvers. The natural hierarchical structure in the supply chain problem ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - GIS-enabled biomass-ethanol supply chain optimization. T2 - Model development and Miscanthus application. AU - Lin, Tao. AU - Rodriguez, Luis F. AU - Shastri, Yogendra N.. AU - Hansen, Alan Christopher. AU - Ting, Kuan Chong. PY - 2013/5/1. Y1 - 2013/5/1. N2 - To ensure effective biomass feedstock provision for large-scale ethanol production, a three-stage supply chain was proposed to include biomass supply sites, centralized storage and pre-processing (CSP) sites, and biorefinery sites. A GIS-enabled biomass supply chain optimization model (BioScope) was developed to minimize annual biomass-ethanol production costs by selectingthe optimal numbers, locations, and capacities of farms, CSPs, and biorefineries as well as identifying the optimal biomass flow pattern from farms to biorefineries. The model was implemented to study the Miscanthus-ethanol supply chain in Illinois. The results of the baseline case, assuming 2% of cropland is allocated for Miscanthus production, showed ...

Since the beginning of the outbreak on 5 July 2018, a total of 2,013 suspected cholera cases, including 37 deaths (case fatality ratio 1.8%), have been reported.. Ninety-two percent (1,842) and 81% (30) of the reported cases and deaths, respectively, came from Madarounfa District. Maradi District registered 154 cases and seven deaths, according to health officials.. The good news is that officials note a slight reduction in the disease trend observed during the past two weeks.. The ongoing heavy rainfall and floods being experienced in parts of the region could exacerbate the risk of contamination of water sources. The latest water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) assessment carried out by UNICEF and WHO estimates that only 37% of the population in Maradi Region has access to basic sources of potable water.. On the other hand, 75% of the population are said to practice open defecation, with only 10% having access to basic sanitation. These factors, coupled with the limitations in the response, are ...

In August of 2005, humanitarian action in favour of severely and moderately malnourished children was finally triggered on a wide scale. Thanks to support from the Regional Office for Western Africa and Headquarters, the Niamey Country Office has played an effective, decisive role in the process by assuming technical leadership and a coordination role in the area of nutrition through its support to the Ministry of Public Health and in cooperation with NGOs in the field. The initial objective was to offer services best suited to the population that had not been available so far in order to save childrens lives. Quality assurance was developed through the adoption of a protocol for the management of malnutrition, the establishment of training programmes for its use, and the design of a monitoring system. Quality assurance has been in a state of constant improvement since September 2005, at which date a strengthening of qualified human resources clearly took place at the central as well as the ...

NIAMEY, Niger (AP) - The British aid agency Oxfam says millions of dollars are needed urgently to stop a hunger crisis in Niger turning into a catastrophe.
Niger is a republic in sub-saharan Africa. It is not a very rich country despite some natural resources. Lately it has been faced with turmoil caused by Boko Haram terrorists. Therefore the French, former colonist, supplies knowledge and also some hardware. This arrived in the shape of three Gazelle helicopters. The Americans supplied two Ce208. Also, this meant that the country operates jet fighters for the first time with two Su-25 being sourced from Ukraine. Together with the new Mi-35P this makes the small air force more potent than it ever was.. Not much is known about the order ot battle. All squadrons are based at Base Aérienne No.101 Niamey but can be deployed to other places as well, when the safety and security situation requires. At that base, France invested in a UAV stronghold as well to combat the terrorists in the region.. ...

The Communications Minister Ursula Owusu Ekuful has said Ghanas Communications sector is ready to fully take advantage of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).. The operational phase of the AfCFTA was launched in Niamey, Niger on July 7, 2019, and would be one of the largest free trade areas since the formation of the World Trade Organisation, given Africas current population of 1.2 billion people, which is expected to grow to 2.5 billion by 2050.. Ghana would host the secretariat of the AfCFTA, having prevailed over six other countries that had also expressed interest in hosting it.. Addressing a ministerial panel discussion on the implementation of the AfCTA on Tuesday 20, August Mrs Owusu Ekuful said the sector under her stewardship is ready for the opportunities that the AfCTA would present.. The Communication Sector is one of the 5 priority service sectors of the African Continental Free Trade Area and with a market of over 1.2 billion people; it offers enormous opportunities ...
Residents in the capital Niamey earlier reported hearing gunfire in the middle of the night in the district where the presidency is located. A government statement said an attempted coup had been blocked, condemning what it called a cowardly and regressive act which sought to threaten democracy and the state of law.. An investigation has been launched and several people connected with this attempted coup have been detained and others are being actively sought, it said, without giving further details.. The alleged leader of the coup is an air force officer in charge of security of Niameys military air base and is still being actively sought, a source within Nigers security services said.. The situation is totally under control, the government statement said, calling on the public to carry on with normal life. A security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said there were some arrests among a few members of the army who had been behind the coup bid. The Presidential Guard ...
