Brief project description (max. 5 lines):

The project seeks to determine the burden of catastrophic health expenditure on the universal healthcare
coverage framework in Malaysia. Although health insurance coverage is generally good in the country, the
amount of out-of-pocket expenditures and health inequities remains a serious problem. The project plans to
undertake household surveys and the maintenance of "health diaries" to measure cost and expenditure among
The study is being conducted in three sites in Zambia in order to: 1) identify the needs, opportunities and gaps in

an increasing no of vertically and perinatally HIV infected adolescents.

This study on Maternal and Child Health (MNCH) Investment Cases in India, Nepal, Indonesia, the Philippines
and Papua New Guinea Asia was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and AusAID. This second
phase mapping study has been undertaken by a consortium of the newly established AusAID Knowledge Hubs in
close collaboration with UNICEF and New ERA. The study determined the current burden of MNCH mortality,
identified the “best-buy range of interventions”, and reviewed equitable progress towards MDGs 4 and 5, and
documents allocation of financial resources to MNCH. Furthermore, this study also described the health system
constraints and bottlenecks hampering the scaling-up of the “best-buy range of interventions” and estimated
alternative scenarios of additional funding.

A PhD thesis, this project presents a cross-country comparative analysis of health care policy-making in countries

interest groups and party politics.

control villages.

Our national web-based survey of primary health care decision makers working in the municipal, state, and
federal government will assess their attitudes, behaviour, and intention to use research evidence. In turn, a

Health Systems Evidence database as a knowledge translation platform for policy and decision making in health
systems and services.

The information gap on HIV/AIDS/STD among adolescents, adults and the general population, including people
with high-risk behavior is high in Bangladesh. 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.

We are going to map inequalities in oral health and dental care utilization in 22 districts of Tehran. We will
measure some oral health indices( like DMFT, CPI and IOTN) and some utilization indices (like dental visits in
previous year and type of treatments received) and then we will analyze the data to estimate Concentration
Index(CI) and Horizontal Inequity(HI) to determine if equity is achieved or not.

The focus of the research was on measuring the difference in the degrees of inclusion of marginalised groups -
women, underprivileged ethnicities and poor people - in the use of health services, at two periods of time: before
and after the fees for primary health care were removed. Field work was done in Jumla - a remote, mountainous
and perennially neglected district of Nepal.

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

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.
