Health and poverty in sub-Saharan Africa by Gerald Bloom( Book )

5 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
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 34 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
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 12 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

How law enforcement will cope with inter-ethnic/inter-racial violence by the year 2002 by Henry Lucas( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This futures study of the police response to violence between minority groups in California focuses on the effects on training needs in the future, on minority recruitment, and on the role of the minority community in solving problems of such violence. Nominal group technique and modified Delphi technique were used to develop six trends; six events considered significant to the issues. The trends include new ethnic groups infringing on other's territory, minorities in law enforcement, drug dealing for a power base, regard for human life, language differences, and multicultural training needs for law enforcement. Using the normative scenario, a strategic plan is developed for a multi-ethnic city of 250,000 in Southern California. Stakeholders, organizational capability, and use of strategic assumption techniques are used to evaluate the department and environment as well as readiness for change. Policies developed by a panel include multi-ethnic appreciation for law enforcement, neighborhood policing, and development of a minority advisory board. A plan is developed to synthesize the three policies. A transition management plan is presented to facilitate the implementation of policies that involve working closely with minority neighborhoods to achieve needed change and development of an image of police and policing that will enhance minority recruitment

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 0 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
