Primary diabetes care with emphasis on self-care development was provided to a cohort of people with diabetes. In 1991 the National Department of Health (DOH) transferred decision-making and management of health care to local units of government through a decentralization process known as devolution. HISTORY OF THE DOH • In 1947, under Executive Order No. We received 24 online survey responses and interviewed 27 other decision-makers. The search included terms related to service delivery, health workforce and medical commodities. Levels of the staff’s pre- and post-training diabetes knowledge and of their self-assessment of diabetes care-related skills were measured. The prevalence of diabetes in the Philippines is increasing. PROSPECTIVE ANALYSIS OF NATIONAL NUTRITION POLICY ADVANCEMENT IN VIETNAM, Who should decide for local health services? It passed on the responsibility of delivering the much-needed health services to 77 municipalities, most of which are perpetually cash-strapped. As of 2000, every Filipino paid P1,836 (US$33.9) for debt servicing. revealed existence, persistence and intensifying spatial clustering of maternal healthcare utilization after devolution. In several countries, including Vietnam, the focus of this paper, this process is affected by the quality of the decentralized process of planning and action. The HSRA aimed to improve health financing, health regulation, hospital systems, local health systems, and public health programs. Getis Ord Gi* hot spot analysis, using ArcGIS 10.3, The UK's four systems were created very similar at the high water mark of British political unity. CONCLUSIONS: Objective The model developed in our study makes four central contributions to enhance the WHO framework and the existing literature. Despite the rhetoric to the contrary, too much power is probably still retained at the central level. Frequently, primary and secondary hospitals were located close to RHUs and performed the same basic outpatient services. but not facility-to-population ratio as some facilities recorded zero maternal service offered. Spatial Equity in Devolved Healthcare: Is It Quality or Quantity Causing Spatial Clustering in Maternal Health Utilization when Affordability has been Addressed? Subsequently, there has been a conscious effort under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM)-launched in 2005-to promote decentralization of funds, functions and functionaries to lower levels of government; and Karnataka had a head-start since devolution of all 29 functions prescribed by the 73rd Amendment had already taken place in the state by the late 1990s. Conclusion Whereas increasing health facilities is well intentioned, their service utilization, quality and A major reform was introduced in 2010 to increase the number of poor families covered by PhilHealth and to reduce or eliminate co-payments. A second analysis making use of certain organizational theories was done to explore on improving feasibility and acceptability of organizing care for chronic conditions. In remote rural areas of the country, large numbers of women and children die without seeing a doctor or a health care provider. Conditions that either enable or hinder the effectiveness of decentralization were identified by exploring decision-making in five health sector functions. Training interventions include education programs to develop future managers and on-the-job training programs for current managers. Figure 1 shows in detail the devolved personnel, budget, and facilities from the DOH. The average monthly income of a Filipino household is only 519 USD which may not be enough to cover treatment of a single relapse let alone costly disease-modifying treatments. Where the degree of congruity with WHO guidelines is high, the protocols are often not fully applied in practice. The Philippine public first line healthcare system Public healthcare in the Philippines was devolved in 1992. RESULTS: Most survey participants also preferred re-centralization. Background BACKGROUND: We also searched online resources of international agencies, including the World Bank, to find relevant grey literature. Next is social services at 28 percent, which is to be divided among education, housing, land distribution, health, etc. Design: Integration was accomplished through health service reorganization, (re)distribution of chronic care tasks, and training of LGHU staff. In Philippines, perceived political recruitments were reported in the first year of devolution due to increased influence of local governments and reduced regulatory control by the national department of health, ... Cities, on the other hand, may own both hospitals and RHUs and provide both levels of care. The book proposes alternative policy scenarios … and highlights the key role of health system researchers in influencing the development of pro-equity international health policies and the evaluation of their impact. Background: Worldwide health systems are facing an increasing number of challenges, while governments remain dedicated to searching for cost-effective options to enhance the capacity of national health systems to perform well. Health Policy 2. The book is clear about the need for a policy shift that re-establishes the right to access to quality healthcare. The findings of the historical review of devolution in the Philippines reveals some consistencies with the international literature, which describe some negative effects of decentralization, and provide a rationale for the Philippines in undertaking a second wave of reform in order to 'make devolution work'. With regards to health information systems, Adoption of District Health Information System (DHIS2) in all health facilities was in Kenya was aimed at addressing the shortcomings of lack of reliable data to base decision making which included paper-based data capture which lacked timeliness. The Code devolved basic services for agriculture extension, forest management, health services, barangay (township) roads and social welfare to Local Government Units. Most recently, the NHS five year forward view asserted All rights reserved. The study used mixed method design covering all recipient government hospitals which the MedPool PUP deployed with either full time medical officers or part time medical specialist. This impacts on the provision for health and other public services for people who need them most. Also, 62 percent of infants are born at home, because of economic and cultural reasons. For all these reasons, the People's Health Movement feels the principles of its People's Charter for Health are here represented; our worldwide membership would want to read it.' This report analyzes the likely impact of the 1991 Local Government Code on the delivery of public health services. This report describes a rare case of imperforate anus associated with both rectovaginal and rectocutaneous fistulas in a 6-year-old Filipino girl. Although the relationship between devolution and disparities in access to health care is mixed, most studies do not attribute observed disparities in healthcare use to Devolution. There are few natural policy experiments as intriguing or potentially useful as that provided by the four health systems of the UK. Passing on the big responsibility of health care to LGUs was done with noble intentions, but unfortunately, with inadequate preparation resulting in inappropriate and ineffective health service implementation (DOH 1999a, p.i).” International health and aid policies of the past two decades have had a major impact on the delivery of care in low and middle-income countries. The majority receive a monthly hardship allowance in the range of $7.5-94. On the other hand, adjustments in accountability should focus on the various mechanisms that can be enforced by the central level, not only to build the desired capacities and augment the inadequacies at local levels, but also to incentivise success and regulate failure by the local governments in performing the functions transferred to them. It is policy-relevant to analyze the conditions that make decentralization work and the optimal combination of decentralized and centralized functions that enhance the health system. Analysis of variance was used to determine differences in KAP, self-care practices, and PACIC and regression analysis was used to determine any associations of the abovementioned variables to the PACIC ratings. Although the work descriptions covering the deployment of the MedPool doctors are focused on providing medical care to the patients, the contributions to the achievements of the hospitals by the MedPool doctors go beyond these. Increasing the autonomy of county hospitals in Kenya will improve their functioning. CONCLUSIONS Provincial-level actors were deeply dissatisfied with the nature of their role in the process. Current and future challenges for the health care system include staff retention, service delivery inefficiencies, the rise in noncommunicable diseases and the challenge of reaching populations in remote areas. The attention to health has been enhanced in global fora and health aid has tripled in the last decade. Methods Variation was observed between hospitals as to when resuscitation would be provided for EPIs. In this scheme, administrative power was legally transferred from the national government to the regional political units thereby redistributing decision-making and resources amongst the local governments. Examples of their successes are included in this paper. The devolved government system in Kenya has significantly increased county level decision-space for HRH and EMMS management functions. © The Author 2015. Equitable Distribution of Resources. Thus, one possible solution to the scarcity of trained providers is to delegate HIV counseling and testing (HCT) to barangay (community) health workers or BHWs. Decentralization has been promoted as a strategy to bring decision-making closer to local levels where people know better their needs. The decentralization of the Philippines' health sector in 1991 sought to improve the efficiency of local health resource allocation; however, local officials were unprepared for the increased responsibility. The EU is developing a new policy framework aimed at greater equity and coherence in the EU role in Global Health. Also in 2000, every Filipino is earmarked P429 (US$7.92) for defense. Analysing the health system through the lens of this synergy is useful for exploring concrete policy adjustments in the Philippines as well as in other settings. But debt servicing still got the biggest share at 32 percent. Lastly, 1 out of 19 facilities have emergency treatment and medical facilities for their employees, indicating inadequate OHS service delivery in the facilities studied. The authors suggest that this is a major area for future research. of established public referral health facility was largely responsible for the hot spots in maternal health services utilization, “This view only reflects the government’s abandonment of its responsibility to promote and protect the people’s rights to health,” he said. Under this framework, mental illness was managed by imprisoning the mentally ill behind asylum walls in order to reduce the risk posed to the wider communit… Asia is the focus of this burden, owing to huge population numbers and increasing prevalence rates. These systems extract the features from pre-processed images and use them for identifying the skin lesions through machine learning as the core. Results These aspects regarding predictive factors of preventive care have yet to be studied keenly at the regional level in the Philippines. 2. The sub-processes were interconnected although the respondents agreed that having a supportive work environment was more time and effort intensive relative to the other two sub-processes. Given the size and complexity of London’s health and care system, our approach has The paper seeks to explore spatial disparities in maternal healthcare utilization and prospects of realising spatial equity after devolution of healthcare in Kenya. This meant that government hospitals must be allowed to collect socialized fees so they can reduce dependence on direct subsidies from government. We employed a mixed methods approach that included an online survey in one region and in-depth interviews with purposively-selected decision-makers in the Philippine health system. An educational program reorienting the nurses on leptospirosis control and treatment guidelines particularly the administration of antibiotic prophylaxis, and a training program in collecting environmental samples is recommended to address the nurses’ low perceived capability in these particular areas. The UK and India are some of the countries with evidence of how devolution impacts positively from accountability and participation. The emphasis on local, rather than national, government is referred to as devolution. Conclusion: District health systems managers are those persons who are responsible for overseeing the operations of the health system within a defined, subnational geographical area that is designated as a district. Previously, most of the resources including public institutions were in the major urban centers and cities. A total of 103 nurses working at the barangay health centers participated in the study. We conducted a national survey of NICUs in the Philippines. Public hospitals reported more commonly experiencing shortages of ventilators than private hospitals (85%vs23%, p<0.001). To achieve these goals, the HSRA followed five major reform strategies; one of these was to provide fiscal autonomy to government hospitals. In keeping with its role as facilitator and technical assistance provider, HPP worked with senior ministry officials to identify participants for the Functional They were all ‘national health service’ (NHS) systems, with the government directly owning hospitals, contracting with primary care General Practitioners (GP) and employing most other staff in a system centrally financed out of general taxation and provided for free at the point of service. Methods: overrides quantity, and proximity, in patient choices of providers resulting into spatial clustering in utilization within National policies and health promotion efforts need to be revisited to operationalize how information about TB/HIV policies is cascaded to the grassroots. Conclusion The second framework uses a principal agent approach and innovative maps of 'decision space' to define the range of choice for different functions that is transferred from the centre to the periphery of the system. Background A facility assessment (n = 17) was done using a modified version of WHO-Service Availability and Readiness Assessment questionnaire to assess feasibility (scale of 1 to 4) while acceptability from the perspective of patients and BHWs was determined using surveys. data by each registered health facility and by each Ward in Siaya County. Methods: The results showed that nurses had a mean score of 72% in the knowledge part of the assessment, indicating good knowledge on leptospirosis and high-perceived relevance and capability in the performance of the skills except in the collection of samples from contaminated environments. People with diabetes consulting in the said primary care services were interviewed making use of questionnaires adapted from previously tested and validated KAP questionnaires and the patients' assessment of chronic illness care (PACIC) questionnaire. This paper assesses the range of decision‐making authority transferred from the central government to subnational levels in the area of human resources for health management in Tanzania. The analysis finds a variety of different types and degrees of decentralization, with the Philippines demonstrating the widest range of choice over many functions that were devolved to local government units. Devolved healthcare in Kenya was to ensure provision of proximate and easily accessible services throughout the Country, thereby improving local uptake as an outcome from patient perspective. In 1991 the Philippines Government introduced a major devolution of national government services, which included the first wave of health sector reform, through the introduction of the Local Government Code of 1991. This implies that quality It proposes a health policy based on a political philosophy in an attempt to reconcile professional, cultural and political ethics. There is no available Philippine data on PD prevalence. The (HSRTAP) was organized in June 2000 in response to the DoH request for technical assistance support in implementing the Health Sector Reform Agenda (HSRA). In 12 out of 16 (75%) hospitals visited, the doctors deployed were able to introduce new clinical services such as heart surgery, ophthalmology, renal transplant, hepato-biliary surgery, automation of clinical laboratory procedures, among others. Unfortunately, families who contribute a larger portion of funds to the health system have a minimal voice in demand for health care services. Other loans and grants came from the WHO, Japanese, Australian, French, Spanish, U.S., Canadian, Belgian, and Finnish governments. There is equitable distribution of national resources. Findings Local utilization ratio, a new innovative indicator, was applied to effectively measure and analyse the spatial disparities in maternal healthcare through ordinary least square spatial regression analysis within spatio-temporal analysis realm using ArcGIS 10.3. In some provinces, inefficiency emerged as a problem when these took on more hospitals than what provincial resources could handle [22,26, ... d in the delivery of healthcare services. The global burden of diabetes and its accompanying risk factors is upon us. Double stigmatization among TB patients was also linked to poor uptake of HIV testing. A total of 75 public hospitals were beneficiaries of the MedPool PUP covering all hospital categories – Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4 hospitals. Residential, business and public premises are regularly monitored to ensure that there are no health nuisances. This review was performed to synthesize evidence around this issue. At institutional levels, these desired capacities should include having a multi-stakeholder approach, generating revenues from local sources, partnering with the private sector and facilitating cooperation between local health facilities. Despite the creation of a national health insurance agency, PhilHealth, in 1995, out of pocket payment levels are high. Second, our model suggests the need for professionalization of health managers at different levels of the health system. To evaluate the effectiveness and continuing relevance of the Medical Pool Placement and Utilization Program (Med Pool PUP) There is limited price regulation. We set out to examine governance … Objective In addition to a lack of a clearly defined referral system, a decline in the maintenance of infrastructure and under-financing of the operational costs of services also resulted in primary and secondary hospitals no longer being capable of providing referral services to health centres in their catchment areas. Applying multiple-case design, the study focused on County of Siaya and 30 Wards therein, as Key goals were to understand variability in processes across provinces, identify factors that influenced the process, and assess the usefulness of the process for individuals involved in planning and action. Hospitals are therefore experiencing 'recentralization within decentralization'. The analyses indicated that care for chronic conditions may be introduced, considering the needs of people with diabetes in particular and the community in general as recipients of care, and the issues and factors that may affect the healthcare workers and the health system as providers of this care. Institutions were classified according to sector (private/public), region and level. Evidence is scant however about the acceptability and feasibility of engaging community health workers to provide HIV counseling and testing (HCT) among TB patients in the Philippines. In 1991 the National Department of Health (DOH) transferred decision-making and management of health care to local units of government through a decentralization process known as devolution. Ten focus group discussions with program managers, non-government organizations (NGO), patient organizations, and primary healthcare centers from different levels of the Philippine health system were conducted. Result showed significant positive spatial relationship in maternal service utilizations before and after devolution by Wards (p<0.01, R 2>90%). Data were analysed using thematic approach. If the average annual growth rate continues, the population of the Philippines is expected to double in 29 years. The health status of Filipinos has improved dramatically over the last 40 years, with a two-thirds drop in infant mortality, lower prevalence of communicable diseases and life expectancy to over 70 years. Based on the effectiveness demonstrated by the MedPool PUP and the continuing health human resource needs of public hospitals, the MedPool PUP continues to be relevant as a health human resource program of the Department of Health. descriptive analysis involving hot spot and cold spot Wards was done to provide qualitative explanations to the spatial The adjustment costs for the reform program were estimated at $280 million over 3 years. Both the prevalence and incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) continue to increase with a commensurate upward trend in the prevalence of prediabetes. THE DEVOLUTION OF THE. To explain the various degrees of implementation, we analyse the effects of face-to-face horizontal and vertical interactions between public hospitals and other policy actors by employing sequential explanatory mixed methods. This suggests the need for the central government to increase decision space to districts in the area of recruitment. Two studies met our inclusion criteria. Methods: In its mandate to provide normative guidance to Member States, WHO has issued various evidence-based guidelines and recommendations on maternal health care. The study found little variability in the planning process among these eight provinces, probably due to a planning process that was predominantly a fiscal exercise within the confines of a largely centralized structure. The objective of this paper is to describe and assess the acceptability and feasibility of delegating HCT among TB patients to barangay (community) health workers (BHWs) in the Philippines. The government is expecting a budget deficit of P180 billion (US$3.324 billion) this year, comprising 3.4 percent of the country’s expected economic output. Electronic supplementary material Results: The training workshop improved diabetes knowledge (p<0.001) and self-assessed skills (p<0.001) of the LGHU staff. Drawing from the “decision space” approach and using mixed methods, this thesis determined the conditions that enable decentralization to be effective by analyzing the perspectives of decision-makers in the Philippine health system. It presents the roles of the Federal government, business, professional organizations, State and local governments and the "information entrepeneur" in advancing the state-of-the-art in social service systems, Underdeveloped nations around the world are actively promoting programs which are said to be improving the health status of their disadvantaged populations. applications. Over five years after operationalization of the devolved healthcare, it isn’t certain whether or not there have been reducing spatial disparities and/or improving prospects of spatial equity in local utilizations of essential primary healthcare. Changes in knowledge, attitudes and self-management practices, body mass index, waist circumference, waist-hip ratio (WHR) and glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) were measured 1 year after full project implementation. Outcome measures Context-adapted DSME/S was given to a cohort of people with diabetes by trained pre-existing local government healthcare personnel. The purpose of this study was to investigate differences in diabetes knowledge, attitudes and perceptions (KAP), self-care practices as related to assessment of chronic illness care among people with diabetes consulting in a family physician-led tertiary hospital-based out-patient clinic versus local government health unit-based health centers in the Philippines. What explains the variation among public hospitals in implementing the free healthcare policy of the Philippines? Thus, decision space may be better used when local decision-makers have the capacity for innovation in the delivery of health programmes (while maintaining fidelity to national objectives) that address specific local needs, more appropriate to the culture, and thus more effectively implemented at local levels. Results: The article traces the past, present and future role of the Federal Government and other actors in the human service systems community in the development of social service systems. The thrust of most, if not all, traditional sources of loans is the reduction in government expenditures and the privatization of social services. METHODOLOGY Anorectal malformations consist of a wide spectrum of conditions which can affect both sexes and involve the distal anus and rectum as well as the urinary and genital tracts. Analyzing the effectiveness of decentralization in improving the health sector with a focus on the Philippines, Treatment gaps in Parkinson’s disease care in the Philippines, Devolution and its effects on health workforce and commodities management – early implementation experiences in Kilifi County, Kenya, The current status and challenges in multiple sclerosis management in the Philippines, What conditions enable decentralization to improve the health system? This computation is based on the budget of the DND, which excludes the proposed P1.2 billion (US$22.160 million) intelligence fund and the P3 billion (US$55.401 million) for the counter-insurgency program. With EMMS, significant delays in procurement led to long stock-outs of essential drugs in health facilities. Available housing, water supply, electricity supply, and educational facilities were cited as inadequate. Results Complete data were collected from 164 participants. The doctors it deployed have contributed significantly in improving the clinical services by introducing new specialty services and enhancing existing ones. This is the primary basis for this study to conclude that the MedPool PUP is effective. Two out of three BHWs also disagreed to provide HCT but the same number felt that they could provide HCT if additional trainings were given to them. International Health and Aid Policies arms health professionals, researchers and policy makers with strategies that will enable them to bridge the gaps between public health, medicine and health policy in order to support robust, comprehensive and accessible health care systems in any political environment.
