Health and poverty in sub-Saharan Africa by Gerald Bloom( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a review of the current thinking on issues of health and poverty in Africa. Its purpose is to provide the basis for a programme of work to support and design the implementation of pro-poor health strategies in Africa. The paper documents the general improvements in health status since the 1960s with a few countries being exceptions. Whilst HIV/AIDS and the resurgence of malaria and TB can partly explain the exceptions, there is also a link between a lack of basic health, water and sanitation infrastructure and poor health performance. Zambia is used as a case study. Finally, the paper reviews recent methods for incorporating the results of cost-effectiveness studies into planning public health expenditure and argues that options for using public funds need to be assessed in terms of the extent to which they enable poor people to address their health needs and cope with health shocks

Researching social policy by Henry Lucas( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 1990s saw a remarkable change in the rhetoric of international donor and lender agencies. The 'magic of the market' paradigm of the previous decade gave way to a 'balanced' strategy in which the state had a crucial role to play. The primacy of economic growth gave way to an emphasis on 'poverty reduction', with poverty being defined not simply in income terms but as a 'multidimensional' construct, also covering low levels of education and health, vulnerability and powerlessness. To address this broad agenda, agencies turned to experts on 'social development', often providing a welcome boost to their own previously somewhat marginalised social development teams. This concern with social issues and social context lead to a greatly expanded demand for new methodologies and methods which could provide improved 'knowledge' and 'understanding' of social processes. A battery of 'toolkits', 'manuals' and 'sourcebooks' were produced, each of which promised not only to meet this demand but to do so quickly, efficiently and often in partnership with local people. This Working Paper reviews some of the main methodological approaches to emerge from this period, reflecting on both their ambitious objectives and somewhat more prosaic limitations
Economic impact of unsafe abortion-related morbidity and mortality : evidence and estimation challenges by Michael Vlassoff( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unsafe abortion-related morbidity and mortality (UARMM) impacts welfare at the individual, household, community and national levels. This report surveys the empirical information available on costing unsafe abortions, to develop an analytical framework for cost estimation, to describe the methodological approaches available, given the constraints of the subject matter, and finally to estimate cost ranges within the limitations of data on unsafe abortions
Transforming health markets in Asia and Africa : improving quality and access for the poor by Gerald Bloom( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There has been a dramatic spread of health markets in much of Asia and Africa over the past couple of decades. This has substantially increased the availability of health-related goods and services in all but the most remote localities, but it has created problems with safety, efficiency and cost. The effort to bring order to these chaotic markets is almost certain to become one of the greatest challenges in global health. This book documents the problems associated with unregulated health markets and presents innovative approaches that have emerged to address them. It outlines a framework th

Financing health care in poor rural counties in China : experiences from a township-based co-operative medical scheme by Yu Hao( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The economic reform programme in China, which started in the late 1970s, has had a major impact on rural health services. The replacement of collective agricultural production by the 'household responsibility system', lead to the widespread collapse of collective funded Co-operative Medical Schemes (CMSs), which at that time assisted farming households with health care costs in more than 90% of villages in rural China. The design and implementation of new forms of CMS which are compatible with the economic reform has become a central focus of rural health policy. With strong political support from the central government, which has proposed that most rural areas should have such schemes in place by 2000, widespread CMS implementation is proceeding at considerable speed. Effective regulation, based on systematic monitoring and evaluation methodologies will be essential if these new schemes are to be sustainable. This paper examines the issues involved using empirical evidence from an evaluation based on the logical framework approach of an experimental scheme which was initiated in Hechi Prefecture, Guangxi Province in 1995. The study findings suggest that the very restricted forms of CMS now being introduced on a widespread basis to meet government targets may have some merit in terms of the organisation and regulation of health services and could represent a valuable first step towards a viable financing option. However, the focus on village based schemes, with minimal levels of funding and consequent inability to provide assistance with drug costs or treatment at higher level facilities, raises considerable doubts as to their sustainability when the current enthusiastic support provided by local government declines. The case study reinforces the point that the establishment of a CMS can do little to overcome basic deficiencies in service provision. It also indicates that such schemes will not solve the problem of access for the poorest households in the absence of specific and effective mechanisms to finance their inclusion
