EVIPNet Africa's first series of policy briefs to support evidence-informed policymaking

Panisset, Ulysses; Lavis, John N
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care. 2
EVIPNet (Evidence-Informed Policy Network) Africa?a network of World Health Organization (WHO)-sponsored knowledge-translation (KT) platforms in seven sub-Saharan African countries?was launched at a meeting in Brazzaville, Congo, in March 2006 (1;2). EVIPNet Africa can trace its origins to resolutions from both the Ministerial Summit on Health Research (November 2004) and the World Health Assembly (May 2005) (10;11), the spirit of which was reaffirmed at the Global Ministerial Forum on Research for Health (November 2008) (13). Typical of EVIPNet?s pragmatic efforts to directly support evidence-informed health systems, a joint capacity-building workshop was convened in 2008 at the Ethiopian Health and Nutrition Research Institute.

Nana, Victor; Kouyaté, Bocar
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care. 2
Malaria is a major public health problem in Burkina Faso. Statistics from health facilities in 2006 showthat 40.1 percent of medical consultations, 53.4 percent of hospital admissions, and 45.8 percent of deaths are malaria related. Malaria among children under 5 years of age accounted for 46 percent of all cases in 2004, 49 percent in 2005 and 48 percent in 2006. In the same age group, malaria was the cause of 66.4 percent of deaths in 2004, 62.0 percent in 2005 and 62.7 percent in 2006. Three policy options that could improve access are changes in Delivery arrangements: motivate community health workers responsible for home management of uncomplicated malaria; Financial arrangements: ensure that private-sector stakeholders (pharmacies, clinics, nursing practices) comply with nationa (mais)

Policy brief on improving access to artemisinin-based combination therapies for malaria in Cameroon

Bonono, Renée-Cécile; Ongolo-Zogo, Pierre
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care. 2
Malaria is the major cause of illness in Cameroon, responsible for 40 percent of medical consultations. For this reason, the Head of State along with his African Union peers in April 2000 and 2006 undertook to achieve universal access to malaria control interventions, including effective treatment. Uneven distribution of health services, especially in rural areas, and high poverty rates make health care and drugs inaccessible or unaffordable. Three policy options that could help to improve HMM and engage the private sector in distributing subsidized ACTs are to: 1- Promote safe, efficient, and effective home-based management of malaria. 2- Engage private pharmacists in the distribution of subsidized ACTs. 3- Strengthen the stewardship and regulatory role of the Ministry of Health to e (mais)

Policy brief on improving access to artemisinin-based combination therapies for malaria in Central African Republic

Gresenguet, Gérard; Moyen, Moyen; Bangamingo, Jean Pierre; Koffi, Boniface
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care. 2
In the Central African Republic (CAR) malaria is a major public health problem and hampers socioeconomic development. It accounts for 40 percent of complaints and 10 percent of deaths in health facilities. Pregnant women, who make up 4 percent of the population, and children under 5 years of age, who represent 17.3 percent, are the groups most vulnerable to malaria owing to their low levels of immunity. Scaling up the treatment of uncomplicated malaria through the use of ACTs could be achieved through three policy options: (i)Make ACTs available at all levels of health system; (ii) Involve all healthcare providers in prescribing ACTs and motivating them appropriately; and (iii) Regulate the registration import and local production of antimalarials.

Jima, Daddi; Messelle, Tsehaynesh; Woyessa, Adugna; Urga, Kelbessa; Kebede, Amha
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care. 2
The problem: Malaria in Ethiopia is one of the leading causes of death (21.8 percent), consultation in outpatient departments (17.8 percent) and hospital admissions (14.1 percent). To overcome this problem, the Malaria Control Program (Federal Ministry of Health) has designed a communitybased malaria treatment approach that played key roles in malaria epidemic control and community mobilization as well as vector control operations. In this approach, Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Village Malaria Workers, volunteers selected by community and trained on malaria diagnosis and treatment as well as indoor residual spray for few days. Policy options: Three policy options that could improve access to ACTs are as follows: (i) rescheduling ACTs to be over-the-counter, (ii) engaging the private sector, and (iii) follow-up and supportive supervision of HEWs.

Mbofana, Francisco; Machatine, Gertrudes; Moreira, Celeste
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care. 2
Malaria is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in Mozambique. Approximately 6 million cases are reported each year. Malaria accounts for approximately 40 percent of all outpatient visits and 60 percent of pediatric hospital admissions. It is the leading cause of death among children admitted to pediatric services. Three policy options that could improve access to ACTs are (i) using APEs for scaling up the presumptive treatment of uncomplicated malaria with ACTs, (ii) introducing ACTs in the private sector and enforcing adherence to regulations, and (iii) providing incentives to prescribers for a time-limited period.

Policy brief on improving access to artemisinin-based combination therapies for malaria in the East African community

Juma, Malick; Upunda, Gabriel L.; Nabudere, Harriet
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care. 2
The World Health Organization (WHO) since June 1998 has advocated for the use of artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) in countries where Plasmodium falciparum malaria is resistant to traditional antimalarial therapies such as chloroquine, sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine, and amodiaquine. In 2006, WHO released evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of malaria backed by findings from various scientific studies. The policy options described in this policy brief are not mutually exclusive interventions; they are complementary strategies in the fight against malaria. The policy brief does not recommend any one option over another, but highlights existing research evidence in support of the included interventions.

Integrating traditional healers into a tuberculosis control programme in Hlabisa, South Africa

Gumede, Lindiwe; Colvin, Mark; Wilkinson, David; Grimwade, Kate
| Idioma: Inglês
Source: MRC Policy Brief. 2
South Africa is experiencing explosive twin epidemics of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis (TB). In order to cope with the increasing numbers of TB patients, a community-based DOTS programme (CB-DOTS) was established in Hlabisa in 1992. In this successful initiative patients may choose their treatment supervisor, who may be a lay person or community health worker, or may take place at a clinic. Overall, from 1992 to 1998 approximately 80% of patients completed treatment under direct observation, and the CB-DOTS programme was shown to be highly cost-effective. Since traditional healers are spread throughout rural areas and are widely consulted, we implemented a study to assess the acceptability and effectiveness of traditional healers as supervisors of TB treatment.

HIV and infant feeding: summary of findings from the Good Start Study

| Idioma: Inglês
Source: MRC Policy Brief. 2
The Good Start Study was a prospective cohort study of 665 HIV positive women who attended routine PMTCT services. The women and infants were followed for 36 weeks after birth with data collection during home visits every 2 weeks until 12 weeks and then monthly until 9 months. At each scheduled visit infant feeding practices were recorded through 24 hour and previous 3 day recall. The study was undertaken in three sites; Paarl (Western Cape), Umzimkulu (Eastern Cape) and Umlazi (KwaZulu-Natal). Sites were selected to highlight differences in socio-economic regions, health infra-structure, rural-urban locations, and HIV prevalence. Key findings: - The quality of infant feeding counselling is poor with inadequate information provided for women to make appropriate choices; - Infant feedi (mais)
