Four sets: 1. Policy framework; 2. Regional strategy for appropriate health care technology; 3. Policy formulation and implementation; 4. Country situation analysis. This set of four books proposes a macro policy and is designed to serve as a stem policy and to provide a framework for the operation and technical policies still to be developed by individual countries. It is part of a proposed interregional approach aimed at producing a complimentary set of guidelines and documents to assist countries in health care technology policy formulation and implementation. They cover the development of a regional strategy for health technology management, health technology management policy formulation, and guidelines for conducting a country situation analysis for health technology management ...
The core functions of public health stresses the importance of assessment in meeting the substance of public health, which are disease control and health promotions. The assessment component of the public health core function is achieved through the joint effort of epidemiology and biostatistics. Health policy ensures that public health services are provided for the populations in need of such services. The understanding of the populations in need depends on the magnitude of the health problems and the existing resources to address such problems. Therefore findings from epidemiologic studies should serve as the building blocks for health policy formulation and implementation. In the light of this, unless policy formulation builds on health research findings that utilized sound epidemiologic principles and methods in their designs and reality in their statistical modeling of the data, health issues will remain unaddressed appropriately in our nation. ...
Newt Gingrich has to be one of the most interesting figures in recent political history. His soul lives at the intersection of public policy, politics and history. Because he has been on so many sides of history and policy, political insiders greet his entry into the presidential primary campaign as Harold Stassen-ish. I am among them, having entered the Senate the same time Newt entered the House 30-plus years ago. I dont know Republican House Budget Committee chair Paul Ryan, but I admire his leadership talent and regret his decision not to run for the Senate from Wisconsin. It would raise the level of health policy discourse substantially in that august body.. Barack Obama is undoubtedly making presidential history. Given the many policy challenges he has had to take on since January 20, 2009, plus the one he chose to take on - health policy reform, aka PPACA, theres no question he is in a unique place in history today. But, it is the Republicans - the Party of No on Obamacare - that ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper introduces an approach to the study of optimal government policy in economies characterized by a coordination problem and multiple equilibria. Such models are often criticized as not being useful for policy analysis because they fail to assign a unique prediction to each possible policy choice. We employ a selection mechanism that assigns, ex ante, a probability to each equilibrium indicating how likely it is to obtain. We show how such a mechanism can be derived as the natural result of an adaptive learning process. This approach leads to a well-defined optimal policy problem, and has important implications for the conduct of government policy. We illustrate these implications using a simple model of technology adoption under network externalities.(This abstract was borrowed from another version of this item.)

Objectives The aim of the present study was to document Australian policies on the physical health of people with mental illness and evaluate the capacity of policy to support health needs. Methods A search of state and federal policies on mental and physical illness was conducted, as well as detailed analysis of policy content and the relationships between policies, by applying the World Health Organization Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2020 as an evaluative framework. Results National policy attention to the physical health of people with mental illness has grown, but there is little interconnection at the national and state levels. State policies across the country are inconsistent, and there is little evidence of consistent policy implementation. Conclusions A coherent national health policy framework on addressing co-occurring physical and mental illnesses that includes healthcare system reforms and ensuring the interconnectedness of other relevant services should be prioritised. ...

The results of the other reward scheme established by the Paediatric Regulation - paediatric-use marketing authorisation (PUMA) - are no more encouraging. PUMAs incentivise companies to develop a product exclusively for paediatric use based on a drug whose patent protection has expired, by making the holder eligible for a 10-year market monopoly and possibilities of exemption from certain fees. However, in the five years since the Paediatric Regulation came into force, the PUMA process has provided very little benefits to children: only one PUMA has been granted, and for a medicinal product that Frances National Authority for Health rated as representing only a minor therapeutic advance over existing therapies ...

Amy Kapczynski, professor of law at Yale Law School and faculty director of the Global Health Justice Partnership. International trade deals once focused primarily on tariffs. As a result, they had little direct effect on health, and health experts could reasonably leave their details to trade professionals. Not so today.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) is a case in point… (6/10).. ...

The Importance of Chemistry in Policy Formulation, National and County Planning: Some reflections on soil pH and its importance in planning the utilization of land resources.. By Timothy W. Mwangi. 11th May,2017. *The author is a physical planner in the Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning. The views expressed in this article are personal and do not reflect the position of the National Executive .. BACKGROUND. In a statement to the Senate delivered on 2nd April 2015 the Chairman of the Standing Committee on Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries stated The Government procured 18750 tons of DAP in 2015. The Ministry is aware that no DAP fertilizer was supplied to Kitale National Cereals Produce Board (NCPB) depot in Trans Nzoia County. This is because according to soil tests conducted in 2013 and launched by His Excellency the President in February 2014, DAP was not recommended for Trans Nzoia unless accompanied by agricultural lime. The reason for this being this county is largely ...

Two of the most important health policy trends of the twenty first century are the emphasis on integrated care and the focus on establishing policy frameworks for improving health outcomes. Although there are important connections between these developments, they have taken place largely independently of each other. The focus on health care integration has been on service design, organisational collaboration and alignment of funding mechanisms at the local and jurisdictional level. At around the same time, considerable interest in the measurement and monitoring of health outcomes has been driven by international organisations and researchers seeking to compare health system performance internationally. This also draws on concerted efforts to understand how changes in population health outcomes are attributable to health system activities [1]. Over recent years, this interest in health system improvement or performance is beginning to influence national health policy settings, particularly as it ...
November 2016. In the Blueprint for a Healthier America 2016: Policy Priorities for the Next Administration and Congress, TFAH presents key strategies for improving the health of Americans. The report calls for a new approach to health by prioritizing improving health and addressing major epidemics in the United States.. Its time for a sea change from our current sick care system to a true health system, where we focus on preventing disease and improving quality of life, said Richard Hamburg, Interim CEO and President of TFAH. In the Blueprint, we highlight high-impact policies that could help spare millions of Americans from preventable health problems and save billions in avoidable healthcare costs - if we make them a priority. The report highlights pressing crises and how investments could yield positive returns on investment by adopting proven health strategies. For instance:. ...
NASA has released a new policy that seeks to streamline management and development processes for research teams that seek to offer investigation proposals for high-risk space projects that cost less than $150 million.. The agency said Friday the new policy for Class D missions will take effect on Jan. 1, and aims to leverage research activities involving small satellites.. The new policy includes amendments to the Class D regulation NASA issued in 2010 such as reduction in documentation requirements and modifications to process approvals and reviews.. The regulation also seeks to encourage proposers to take risks, concentrate on mission design and implementation and reduce management overhead.. Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASAs science mission directorate, said the policy could help advance technological innovation and commercial partnerships.. This new strategy should increase the cadence and invention potential for future low cost missions, he added.. Class D missions ...

Andrew,. I am happy that you appreciate diagreements, because I really do disagree. You have the strong policy recommendations in your title, so you should be able to back them up. But all you really have is a rather vague seems that some policy implications are involved. If that is all you can actually argue, you should retract the earlier allegations. The irony is that you make strong allegations without much basis in a piece in which you criticize just that. If what you provide is - by your own admission - not necessarily strong recommendations (though this has a slight aftertaste of snark, if I am not mistaken), you should not anchor your piece on them being exactly that.. But I even doubt the recommendations part. There are three instances in which I see policy relevance (as claimed by Tol), one in the negative: a) whatever initial benefits (of warming) there are (not), they are sunk and thusly not policy relevant; b) total damage estimates are bad and uncertainty is huge and skewed ...

The MRTB CEO further stated that the lack of manpower and inadequate facilities have affected the practice of the profession and treatment of patients with disabilities.. She said: Manpower is a big challenge for us. We have only nine institutions running physiotherapy and these institutions sometimes produce 18 or 30 therapists. We have 4,000 professionals meeting the needs of a population of 170 million people. We dont have enough equipment to carry out treatment for patients. Rehabilitation is a multi-dimensional approach.. We need collaborative efforts in addressing the issue. In 2015, the board organised a policy development technical working group on the formulation of a disability policy and bill for its inclusion in the National Health Policy. The good news is that a fraction of it appeared in the National Health Policy. Our desire is that a Bill of Disability Concerns will have exhaustive pages wholly addressing matters as concerning Persons Living with Disabilities and their access ...

Policy studies emerged in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s as an subdisicipline of political science. The study of public policy includes the analysis of both the process of policymaking (the policy process) and the contents of policy (policy analysis). Policy analysis includes substantive area research (such as health or education policy), program evaluation and impact studies, and policy design. It involves systematically studying the nature, causes, and effects of alternative public policies, with particular emphasis on determining the policies that will achieve given goals. Policy Studies also examines the conflicts and conflict resolution that arise from the making of policies in civil society, the private sector, or more commonly, in the public sector (e.g. government). It frequently focuses on the public sector but is equally applicable to other kinds of organizations (e.g., the not-for-profit sector). Some policy study experts graduate from public policy schools with public ...
What is youth policy, and what major elements should a national youth policy strategy include? How can young people be consulted and otherwise involved in developing youth policy? How do institutions such as the European Union, the Council of Europe and the United Nations address youth policy, and how can this work be concretely linked to the efforts of a national government to develop a youth policy agenda?These are some of the essential questions addressed in this publication. The Youth Policy Manual should be considered a resource, a tool and a helpful guide both for policy makers in the youth field and for non-governmental organisations and other stakeholder groups who advocate for improved youth policy at the national level.This manual proposes one possible model for how a national youth policy strategy can be developed. It is based on the authors observations from the countries of South-eastern and eastern Europe, as they gain experience in addressing youth policy in a transversal and cross
The NZMA has been concerned for some time that agencies are too focused on implementation activities and with not enough attention paid to the front end (research, analysis, consultation, policy development) and the back end (evaluation and review)..

This report provides a number of recommendations that, if implemented, will improve the quality of policy development in health and more widely. In addition to pursuing this implementation, we could also seek to have this form part of SSC and Auditor General evaluation of government agencies.. ...

In order to achieve a learning health care system in which quality and effectiveness of health care are improved as costs are lowered, leveraging electronic health record data for purposes beyond treatment and payment will need to become easier and more widespread. This paper explores the current legal and policy challenges associated with secondary use of electronic clinical data, including those inherently relying on Institutional Review Board (IRB) review, and discusses a number of strategies that early health IT-adopters have employed to address them. The paper closes by noting potential changes to federal research rules that could ease restrictions on research in the future and by raising one additional policy challenge - support for health services research infrastructure - that, if unresolved, could create obstacles to further progress. ...

Earlier today, the New Jersey Assembly and Senate passed S2676/A4389, which would establish a state-level Health Insurance Assessment (HIA).

In response to the passage of this bill, New Jersey Policy Perspective (NJPP) releases the following statement. Brittany Holom, Senior Policy Analyst, New Jersey Policy Perspective:. With the passage of this bill, New Jersey is solidifying itself as a national leader in protecting the Affordable Care Act and keeping health coverage affordable. The Health Insurance Assessment will provide ample resources for New Jersey to expand health coverage, lower the number of people who are uninsured, and address racial disparities in access to care. These are necessary steps to build a stronger and more equitable state where all residents can ...

Chinas HIV/AIDS policy progress displays a long-term stagnancy followed by a sudden revolution. This article utilizes multiple theoretical tools to interpret this policy progress. It identifies four phases of Chinas HIV/AIDS policy process: (1) institutional endurance interpreted by path dependence from historical institutionalism; (2) deinstitutionalization explained by Olivers antecedents of deinstitutionalization; (3) the radical shift interpreted by Kingdons agenda-setting theory; and (4) reinstitutionalization and diffusion of institutional theory. This study demonstrates the utility of creative borrowing-employing multiple theoretical tools to harness the strengths of each. Doing so reveals that a countrys past experience with similar policy issues, the perceived political and moral legitimacy of existing policies, and a countrys existing political interests can exert resistance to change. In the presence of multiple pressures for change, policy entrepreneurs who can identify ...
Although the Great Recession affected numerous countries around the world, few were as profoundly impacted as Ireland. In the depths of the crisis, real gross domestic product collapsed by 10 per cent, and unemployment ran to almost 15 per cent, priming the context for the Irish government to implement radical policy decisions across a number of areas. Most significant for researchers was the implementation of the Irish governments National Research Prioritisation Exercise policy, which marked the end of what had been a strategy to build a broad base of expertise in higher education. In its stead stood a narrow view of research for economic outcomes. Almost 10 years later, the government adopted a more rounded strategy, Innovation 2020. So, what do these different approaches tell us?. In the wake of the crisis, a series of reviews commenced that sought to redraw the higher education landscape, one of which was the governments policy of research prioritisation. Its overarching objective was to ...
As the social and economic costs associated with mental disorders continue to rise, policymakers and mental health administrators are faced with dwindling budgets and the need for expanded and improved services. This ambitious new work offers a thorough examination of these difficult policy issues, together with studies of the population groups affected and the programs and facilities designed to serve them. Written by twenty-nine specialists in the field, it provides analyses of recent empirical findings and a thoughtful review of the challenges that lie ahead. The first two chapters examine central policy concerns and the elements that make up the mental health service system. Epidemiological analyses focus on problem populations such as the chronically mentally ill, the elderly, children, minorities, and substance abusers. Mental health policy development is next explored. Specific topics covered include the deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill, the creation of community mental health ...

A new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine by a team that includes IHPI members looks at the controversy surrounding how quickly sepsis must be treated.. Using data from 185 hospitals on patients with sepsis and septic shock, researchers found that faster administration of care was linked with lower mortality.. The study team included Michigan Medicine researchers and University of Michigan Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation members Hallie Prescott, M.D., assistant professor of internal medicine, and Theodore Iwashyna, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of internal medicine.. Both time to antibiotics and time to three-hour bundle completion were associated with lower risk-adjusted mortality. For every additional hour of delay in these treatments, odds of mortality increased by 4 percent.. This is the largest study to date looking at time to antibiotics in sepsis treatment, Prescott says. It was made possible as a result of patient-level data collected in New York ...

Policy-making is a dynamic process involving the interplay of various factors, with power, one of its core components, at the heart of every policy process [1]. Fundamental to any policy process are the roles of the actors. The actors influence the process through their knowledge, experiences, beliefs and power [1]. Although power has a profound role in policy-making, empirical evidence suggests that health policy analysis has paid only limited attention to the issue of power in low and middle income countries [2]. Further, power is rarely examined because this is difficult, requiring a combination of empirical evidence and theorising. The definition of power is ambiguous too, especially when it is used in operational terms for research [3]. Dhal [3] states that the way power is defined and understood has implications in policy-making. There are conflicting views on power dynamics, including on the common assumption that power is and should always be top-down.. Many of the debates around policy ...

The Great Depression of the 1930s and the Great Credit Crisis of the 2000s had similar causes but elicited strikingly different policy responses. It may still be too early to assess the effectiveness of current policy responses, but it is possible to analyze monetary and fiscal policies in the 1930s as a natural experiment or counterfactual capable of shedding light on the impact of recent policies. We employ vector autoregressions, instrumental variables, and qualitative evidence for a panel of 27 countries in the period 1925-1939. The results suggest that monetary and fiscal stimulus was effective - that where it did not make a difference it was not tried. The results also shed light on the debate over fiscal multipliers in episodes of financial crisis. They are consistent with multipliers at the higher end of those estimated in the recent literature, consistent with the idea that the impact of fiscal stimulus will be greater when banking system are dysfunctional and monetary policy is ...

The era of health systems strengthening can be dated to a ministerial summit held in Mexico City in 2004, which resulted in the Mexico Statement on Health Research and signaled the emergence a new era for global health. It called on national governments to commit more funding to research on health systems and other funders of health research to support a substantive and sustainable program of health systems research aligned with priority country needs [1].. This call came shortly after the launch of large-scale disease-specific initiatives to address HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis, and just as global mobilization began in earnest to address the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). At least three major factors aligned to drive a shift in attention and resources to health systems strengthening: realization that weak health systems impede the achievement of health MDGs, growing evidence on the adverse effects of global health initiatives on national health systems, and the recognition by global ...

Mental health policies in Europe have been driven, in recent years, by two key documents: The Mental Health Declaration (WHO 2005) and the European Commission Green Paper (2005).

Rhiannon Birch, Director of Strategic Insights and Planning at the University of Derby, observes how the recent deluge of HE policy papers has brought contrasting reactions and opinions on how the sector should engage with government proposals.. A couple of weeks ago, Nicola Owen wrote for this Blog on the avalanche of policy papers which had emerged from the DfE. With the sheer quantity of policy thrown at the sector, its been interesting to observe how responses have percolated through, and this weeks news provides some points for comparison.. One way of responding to a policy deluge is to think about the sectors positioning and its options to influence future policy development. In terms of a direct approach to policy engagement, Stephen Meeks piece on the Universities Policy Engagement Network (UPEN) highlighted that the relationship between research and policy making has mattered more than ever in the past year, and outlines how policy networks can facilitate direct engagement with ...

My current research looks at the impact of politicization - political control by elected officials over bureaucracy - on policy formulation in health care. In a comparative case study of France and Turkey, I examine how different forms of political control affect the way in which health policies are formulated and health outcomes are shaped. My dissertation asks two main questions: What explains variation in public bureaucracies performance under similar institutional settings facing politicization? And how do different forms of politicization inform policy advisory roles of expert-bureaucrats and shape policy outcomes in health?. Drawing on policy documents and more than 60 in-depth semi-structured interviews with high-ranked bureaucrats in the ministries of health in France and Turkey, my dissertation hypothesizes that a politicized bureaucracy can take several forms and its effects can vary across institutional settings, policy stages and policy fields.. Therefore a general statement about ...

According to the International Energy Agency, greenhouse gas emissions from transportation are expected to increase by 120% from 2000 to 2050, largely as a result of a projected three-fold increase in the number of cars worldwide. Without major changes in urban development investments and policy -especially in fast developing countries like China and Brazil-transport emissions are projected to skyrocket, jeopardizing any attempts to stay within a two-degree warming scenario. Beyond greenhouse gases, many transportation system indicators have been moving in the wrong direction, with increasing air pollution, road crash deaths, congestion, and time and money wasted on inefficient mobility.. ITDP has long advocated at the international level to strengthen political will to address climate change, accelerate sustainable development, and increase development finance for low-carbon and equitable transport. In decades of work at the international policy level, ITDP has leveraged hundreds of billions of ...

The government policy environment has already put 2020 business investment on uncertain footing. The disease could be a tipping point for businesses that were considering delaying some investments until at least 2021. Businesses are still licking their wounds from higher tariffs and the slower global growth that followed. The US-China trade deal has mostly represented a cease-fire in the trade war rather than a return to previous trade levels between the two countries. The 2020 general election may also hinder investment plans. The two main presidential candidates will likely have starkly different plans for such key business concerns as taxes, trade, and environmental policy. Credit or asset bubbles, which may have been manageable otherwise, are likely to become a financial liability if the disease or possibly the policy environment causes an economic slowdown. In the US, heavily leveraged corporations will teeter toward default because of sagging domestic demand. Most at risk? The energy and ...
