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
individuals.
The study is being conducted in three sites in Zambia in order to: 1) identify the needs, opportunities and gaps in
SRH services amongst ALHIV; 2) contribute to the evidence-base for increased youth friendly programming for
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
of Eastern Europe after the fall of socialism. Focusing on changes in certain aspects of health care systems, such
as methods of financing and service delivery, it addresses the role of public opinion in shaping policy formulation,
interest groups and party politics.

This is a randomised cluster controlled trial in Iganga-Mayuge Demographic Surveillance Site aimed at
developing and costing an integrated maternal-newborn care package that links community and neonatal
practices in order to inform policy and scale up in Uganda. Community health workers make home visits to
pregnant and newly delivered women, and strengthening of health facilities is done in both intervention and
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
sample of these research participants will be invited to enter in a RCT that will evaluate the effectiveness of the
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.

This is a pilot project on prevention of non-communicable diseases. Phase 1 is a survey on prevalence of

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.

The project involves trends monitoring and horizon scanning of trade and investment facilitation, health systems,
and energy security and policy in Southeast Asia. Trend analysis will be geared towards analysis of emerging
ideas, changing and evolving coalitions and constituencies that impact future policy directions. A focus on the
impact of various trends on vulnerable communities and pro poor policies will be elaborated on through a six
weekly "trend monitoring bulletin", distributed to the NGO and policy making communities.

The project aims to critically evaluate the Kenyan health system in terms of its financing and delivery. It assesses
the level of inequities in the systems and explores the potential of health insurance mechanisms in addressing
inequity challenges in the system.

The study evaluates the performance of Patient Welfare Committees established at 13 Primary Health Centers
and 5 Rural Hospitals in Pune District. The study involves interviews of patients attending the healthcare facility.
The ultimate purpose of the study is to bridge the gap between patients and providers under PWC run centers.

An emerging trend in global health emphasizes the need to give greater attention to contextual and cultural
aspects in international programmes and questions the dominance of western-based models in the context of
globalisation. Systems thinking and complexity science provide new perspectives that can improve our
understanding of the relationships between society, technology and the environment. This research examines the
dynamics of district health systems and explores how they interact in ways that affect their properties, structure
The overall objective is to document the current situation, roles and potentials of the private health sector's role to

This project examined the extent of public health care financing in selected Pacific Island countries and its effect
on population well being.
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.


The study is a performance assessment of secondary health services in a state in Northern Nigeria. It involves
assessments based on the perceptions of policy makers, consumers and other service providers that include all
cadres of staff working at the secondary level hospitals in the state. Data will be both quantitative and qualitative,
with tape recording of consenting respondents for the qualitative aspect. Analysis will include triangulation and
statistical tests.

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

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.
