*  UNFPA ESARO | Health service access saves women's lives
KIWAYUU, Coastal Kenya - The story of mother-of-six Aisha Tiro Bahero, 30, is not only one of resilience and determination, but also of how access to maternal and child health services is critical in saving women's lives and empowering them to lead productive and healthy lives.. Aisha lives in Kiwayuu, a small island located in the eastern part of the Lamu Archipelago in Coastal Kenya. The only health facility on the island was established two years ago by the Lamu County Government, and it serves 600 inhabitants. Prior to its inception, patients, including expectant mothers would travel to Lamu Island, a seven-hour trip by dhow or an hour's trip by motorboat.. "I got married when I was barely 18 years old and I delivered my first child at home," says Aisha. Her three subsequent deliveries also took place at home.. "As a marginalized community, we were ignorant about the importance of antenatal care, largely because we didn't have a health facility in Kiwayuu.". The community relied heavily ...

*  Free establishment of primary health care providers: effects on geographical equity | BMC Health Services Research | Full Text
Equity in access to health care services is a central policy goal in most publicly funded health care systems. Access is a complex concept that can be understood as a fit between the demand for health care services among the population and the supply of care by providers. To be accessible, health care services need to be affordable, contain the appropriate forms of treatment in relation to medical needs and be physically situated so that patients can get to them [1, 2]. An important component of access is geographical accessibility, which can be understood as the distance, or travel time, between patients and health care providers. Equity in geographical accessibility in its simplest form can be understood as all citizens having a similar, or minimum, travel distance to the nearest health care provider [3].. Inequity in geographic access to health care is a well-known problem in many developing countries, where health care services are often ...

*  Senate Health Committee to Vote on Legislation to Stop Surprise Medical Bills | Health Access Blog
By Tam Ma, Policy Counsel, Health Access California. AB 72 (Bonta, Bonilla, Dahle, Gonzalez, Maienschein, Santiago, Wood) is being heard in the Senate Health Committee Wednesday, June 29, 2016.. Patients know they have to follow their health plan or insurer's rules and go to in-network providers and facilities to keep their out-of-pocket costs low. Unfortunately, many patients end up getting a surprise medical bill for hundreds or thousands of dollars from an anesthesiologist, radiologist, pathologist or other specialist who turns out to be an out-of-network provider; one the patient probably never met, did not choose, and often had no control over selecting.. Health Access and Consumers Union have heard from hundreds of consumers who have received surprise medical bills in spite of doing their homework and making sure they were getting care at an in-network facility:. Cassie R.. Cassie R. was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago and needed a minor surgery after a mastectomy. Although she ...

*  Diabetes care and service access among elderly Vietnamese with type 2 diabetes | BMC Health Services Research | Full Text
Diabetes is one of the leading chronic diseases in Australia, and this condition was responsible for approximately 6% of the total burden of disease in 2003 [1]. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), which is the most common type of diabetes in Australia (87%), accounts for 92% of that burden [1]. As such, type 2 diabetes care constitutes a substantial cost for the healthcare system [1]. This form of diabetes, which mostly affects older adults is linked to obesity and sedentary lifestyle. It is also strongly associated with a number of serious health complications, which occur as a result of micro and macro vascular changes [1]. Moreover, the prevalence of T2DM has increased dramatically in the past two decades and this condition is now considered one of the greatest health challenges facing healthcare providers in the 21st century [2, 3]. Rates in Australia have more than doubled during this period [4] and evidence suggests that this prevalence is underestimated at the same time as rates of T2DM ...

*  President Trump Caves to PHRMA; California Legislation Left to Provide Drug Cost Relief | Health Access Blog
Earlier this week, President Donald Trump met with several CEOs from the pharmaceutical industry, and despite recent tough talk about negotiating down prescription drug prices, he took no such steps, and instead offered several corporate giveaways, including tax breaks, reduced regulatory and safety oversight, and even limits on how Medicare could bargain.. With President Trump caving to PHRMA, California now needs to step up to provide prescription drug price transparency by passing Senate Bill 17, authored by Ed Hernandez, chair of the Senate Health Committee:. With President Trump's capitulation to PHRMA this week, it is left to the California legislature to pass prescription drug price transparency. Health Access California, the statewide health care consumer advocacy coalition, is a co-sponsor of SB 17 with the California Labor Federation. We were disappointed that President Trump, who campaigned on negotiating down prescription drug prices, only saw fit to offer corporate tax and ...

For a station in a data communication network having a predefined limit of congestion for handling data immediately undergoing transmission through the station, a system for improving service given to network users requesting new access services to support new transmissions through the same station while the predefined congestion limit is exceeded. This system contains: a first element for determining when the predefined limit is exceeded by existing data transmissions through the station; and a second element, responsive to requests for new access services that are received while the predefined limit is being exceeded for: concurrently processing the request for new service and reducing the quality of service (QoS) to selected users. The reductions in QoS generally have the effects of reducing the speed/priority of handling of data being transmitted to or from the selected users, and of freeing up of sufficient bandwidth to ...

*  The impact of health service variables on healthcare access in a low resourced urban setting in the Western Cape, South Africa
In general, many users experienced barriers with regards to the acceptability of services, particularly in the form of provider attitudes and the impact of diagnoses-based organisation of services on confidentiality and poor communication. Acceptability of service delivery was compromised for service providers through negative user behaviour, language as barriers, short contact sessions and fragmentation of services.. Discussion. Considering the historical context of a fragmented and inefficient healthcare system with poor capacity,8 remarkable achievements in health care service delivery were observed in the PHC health care facilities of Gugulethu. From a service provider's perspective the results demonstrate available, accessible, affordable and adequate services in the study setting through efficient organisation of services according to the DHS ...

"To attract future investment and enable the feedlot sector to expand in the face of climate change predictions the proposed GABORA Water Plan must give feedlot operators options for better access to water resources", Mr Mulders said.. "At the moment the proposed plan effectively restricts lot feeders to access water from the general reserve allocation..

*  Why Care Matters: The Importance of Adequate Care for Children and Society - IssueLab
The care of children matters to all of us. But today there are millions of children around the world that are not cared for adequately. It is a global crisis and one that will only get worse. There are an estimated 151 million children worldwide with either one or both parents dead, with at least 13 million of these children having lost both parents (UNICEF 2013). Adequate care means that children grow up in a permanent, safe and caring family. Many children are separated from their families because they cannot afford to care for them. Other move to attend school or access health services unavailable to them at home. Children that aren't cared for adequately are less likely to attend or do well in school, they are less able to access health and other basic services, and they are more likely to engage in anti-social and criminal behaviours. The lack of care affects their physical, emotional and cognitive development and can sometimes even be life-threatening. This in ...

*  Rearranging the Deck Chairs: Death Displacement
Smoking cessation also may not result in changes in health outcomes. Smoking as a variable represents much more than just smoking. Smoking is not just a simple bivariate representation of a single adverse behavior. Even with smoking cessation eliminated from an individual, the other risk factors remain within the individual (drug use, education, poverty, employment). These and other factors have associations with social determinants. Million Hearts plans for physicians to tell patients to stop smoking. This also requires the workforce that accesses patients at risk. The ability for physicians to tell patients about smoking cessation also depends upon health access for patients and sufficient basic health access workforce. Both areas appear to be set for even greater limitations. How are declines from over 100,000 to less than 50,000 primary care internists going to help with this area? How can family medicine help any more locked at 100,000 with no way to increase since the 1980 design of 3000 ...
