About 88% of adult males do not know about the need for prevention and 96% female adults are also ignorant of this. Bangladesh is still considered to be a low prevalence area. But there is enough evidence to suggest that high-risk behavior is being practiced and all the factors for an epidemic do exist. This research aims to evaluate the rational use of antibiotics for the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in Mongolia which commonly occurs in the winter season. Interviews with doctors and pharmacists/ pharmacy technicians will be designed to reveal underlying factors for prescribing injections, the often used treatment for CAP. Based on a review of the literature, the safety, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of antibiotics used for treatment of CAP will be investigated. This study will identify the quality of prescribing for CAP and evaluate the cost effectiveness of antibiotic selection and treatment in Mongolia. It is anticipated that the study will recommend strategies to reduce inappropriate prescribing practices in Mongolia. This is a pilot project on prevention of non-communicable diseases. Phase 1 is a survey on prevalence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung disease, behavioral, and biological risk factors. Barriers to change at individual, community, policy and physical environment will be studied. Population is structured into schools, workplaces, health centres and neighborhoods. Phase 2 will be structured intervention, monitoring and evaluation. The project is aimed to ensure free health services for the poor (defined by proxy means testing) in designated PHC facilities (family group practices [FGPs] and soum health centers [SHCs]), hospitals, and pharmacies; and ensure pregnant and lactating women, infants, and children 6–24 months old improved access to micronutrients and adherence to their The study looks at how health managers in Ghana make decisions after specific shocks affecting the health system such as departure of the international donor. Through social network analysis and interviews, the main factors that have an impact on the resilience of health systems were identified. Project is aimed at evaluating the process of health policy planning and implementation in Pakistan, focusing on identifying reasons for gaps between planning and implementations and what makes some projects successful while others never implemented. The outcomes from project can be used in future health policy planning.

Review of the current staffing of the Fiji health sector including issues of migration and career progression The project aimed to assess to what extent a training of General Practitioners (GPs) in emergency surgery (essential surgery) is more cost-effective compared to the training of specialists in insuring access to emergency Obstetric care in Burkina Faso and how to ensure adequate coverage of supply of life saving interventions for mothers and newborns The purpose of MHaPP is to develop, implement and evaluate mental health policy in poor countries. We are working to provide new knowledge regarding comprehensive multi-sectoral approaches to breaking the negative cycle of poverty and mental ill-health. MHaPP is based in 4 African countries: Ghana, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia. Research has 3 sub-projects and is training 3 Ghanaian PhD candidates and one Dutch post doc candidate. The 3 sub-projects are evaluation of approaches to identifying and enrolling the poor in the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS); evaluation of the impact of problem solving groups involving providers, scheme managers and community members on enrolment and quality and evaluation of the NHIS on utilization and catastrophic expenditure in different socio-economic quintiles The project will identify strategic actions at the national and global levels to achieve improvements in the provision of HIV prevention and treatment services for women and for children, better understand the range and coverage of services available to women and to children, identify barriers to improved service quality, comprehensiveness and coverage at the national level, and identify how governments and global agencies can better support in- country progress on comprehensive service delivery This prospective, cohort study with a patient, household, facility and provider survey component aims to investigate the impact of a set of peer adherence support and nutritional (PANS) interventions on clinical and non- clinical measures of treatment success. The strategic goal of this study is to develop scalable models for peer adherence and nutritional support (PANS) for effective and sustainable delivery over antiretroviral treatment (ART) in resource-poor settings. 1. Review of the HIV/AIDS Sentinel Surveys 2. Data Quality Assessment 3. Review of the policy on the multisectoral response to HIV/AIDS 4. Impact assessment of the donor funds in the 36 states plus Abuja 5. High level advocacy to all stakeholders and National Assembly. India, post-liberalization, has witnessed the mushrooming of the private health care sector which accounts for more than 80% of total health spending and health care. However, while quality health care is available for those who can afford to pay, it is beyond the reach of the common people. What policies has the government formulated to ensure access to better health services for the poor, and to what extent have they been effective? Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, this study assesses the impact of the GFATM on staff workload; drug management; equity issues; and how HIV/AIDS services have been integrated with the previous services at district and health facility levels. It is hoped that results will inform stakeholders on ways of modifying HIV programmes so as to strengthen the health care system in Malawi. Being multi-country, cross comparisons will be made at a later stage. The research hypothesis is that STI etiologic management (the system used in high income countries) can be more „technologically appropriate‟ for some LMIC than STD syndrome management and can successfully build health system capacity in settings like Vietnam where the government and economy are stable and where trained health workers are readily available.

Comparative analysis is also drawn from the experience of Nigeria. We aim to undertake a cost-effectiveness analysis of ART in the private sector through an existing collaboration with the disease management program. The cost-effectiveness of the public-private program will be evaluated. These two models will be compared with two existing public sector cost-effectiveness studies. This project focuses on inequities in access to health care, where we define access as the „degree of fit‟ between users/populations and providers/health system in the availability, affordability and acceptability of health services. Through three „tracer‟ services, the research will map inequities in utilisation and access nationally, conduct in depth studies in four health „sub-districts‟, representative of both urban and rural realities in South Africa, and identify relevant responses in the policy and practice environment. SHIELD is determining the distribution of the current health care financing burden between socio-economic groups and the distribution of health care benefits across socio-economic groups, as well as the factors influencing these distribution patterns. It will also identify and critically evaluating current experiences and options for likely future development in relation to their likely equity impact, their affordability and sustainability, and their feasibility given the views and preferences of key stakeholders. This study evaluated inequalities among patients in their use of detection, diagnosis and treatment services, caused by their social security on health status in health institutions of six Colombian cities. A retrospective follow- up was carried out where the exposure was their insurance status and the outcomes where the use and access barriers. Health sector reforms (insurance oriented system) and decentralization took place simultaneously in Colombia since 1994. In a sample of 495 (out of 1097) municipalities stratified in 6 strata by income and population, we are assessing decentralization status associated to ARI and Diarrhea mortality in less than 5 years, incidence of malaria and dengue and maternal mortality. Financial, community participation, demographic and other variables are analyzed. This research is focused on an analysis of issues related to the medical/health decisions within the current Colombian health system, in which, private institutions and market mechanisms were introduced through a Health Sector Reform from 1995. The CLICS program is being implemented in 67 villages of Wardha District, Maharashtra State, India. The major strategy of CLICS is to build the capacity of the target communities to develop, manage and ultimately achieve “ownership‟ of village-based child survival and health services. DCM builds the capacity of the communities, formed in the VCC and other organizations to develop, manage and sustain a package of high quality, affordable child survival and health services that address priority health problems This study aims at assessing the support available for protecting Health Care workers (HCWs) at the workplace, and assessing the knowledge of HCWs about Blood-borne viruses mainly HBV, HCV and HIV and practices that make them more susceptible to be infected by these viruses. The study uses both qualitative and quantitative methods and targets HCWs who have direct contacts with patients. The overall purpose of the project is to identify viable strategies for strengthening ethical practice in the private healthcare sector in poor neighborhoods. The project consists of four sub-studies: 1) Desk-study on existing regulatory mechanisms, 2) Ethnographic study among private practitioners; 3) interview sub-study with poor urban households; 4) Health economics Household survey. This study is being conducted under Oxfam GB's larger “HIV /AIDS Prevention and Care Programme for Rural and Tribal Youth in India." Our goal is 1. Facilitating a common understanding about HIV/AIDS issues between the various stakeholders at the district level, 2. Involving them in the district planning workshop(s), and 3. developing a draft district level plan, and comparing it with the Rajasthan State AIDS Control Society‟s (RSACS) existing plan and in order to fashion a more comprehensive district level plan. Assessed the Impact of Structural Adjustment on health; three components were examined: utilization of health services, health indicators, and decentralization. The project intends to determine the current status, enablers and barriers of the implementation of clinical practice guidelines by the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. The study was conducted in Manila and two other provinces. The current status showed that there is a high level of awareness to guidelines. The attitude however towards guideline implementation is only moderate in terms of acceptability. Current practice based on review of records showed an even lower compliance. The enablers are intensive policy dissemination and "soft" policy implementation. Linking with quality health service is next steps. Examining the relationship between insurance and efficiency of a sample of township hospitals in several counties The project analyses the impact of the WTO agreements on the national autonomy for the provision of public goods. The project is especially concerned with the impact of TRIPS on the sustainability of free drugs distribution programs as developed in Brazil. The main hypothesis is that new international arrangements created strong constraints for national policies. These constraints must be evaluated in a normative perspective. The project studied the new roles in the financing and provision of primary health care of the local government in Brazil. It showed that decentralization has favored strong decisional space for the local government (municipalities). In Sao Paulo, local autonomy has been significantly associated with more governmental spending in health care and better primary health care performance.
