Topic:
“Can floor moppers become tap turners off? reflection on a new public health paradigm!”

About speaker:

Dr Ravi Narayan explores a journey of nearly five decades which all stated with the stimulus of a refugee camp experience of a medical intern in 1971, followed by a professional journey of academia, research and field practice- in public health and community medicine at St johns- a community oriented medical college in south India till 1983.

In 1984, he along with many colleagues walked out of the confines of a medical college to initiate the CHC and later SOCHARA which very recently has been called a ‘campus without walls’.SOCHARA in today’s terminologies could  be described as an early start up in Community Health which participated in the incubation and evolution of  several innovations including PHM/ JSA/GHW/IPHU/ CHESS/ CFTFK/ AIDAN/DAF-K and so many others.
During this community journey, various milestones have been related to work with the medico friends circle, the community health movement in India; the peoples health movement at global and national level; the National Rural Health Mission; the Public Health Foundation of India;  the Ministry of health and the Planning commission ; the state health policy processes in Karnataka, MP, Jharkhand, Rajasthan ; the Global Forum for Heath Research ; the  Emerging Voices in Health process and so on.

In all these years Dr Ravi has consistently promoted a community health paradigm shift from a bio medically oriented techno – managerial process to a  social/ community oriented  model that  includes- concepts such as  communitization; SEPCE analysis; globalisation of health solidarity from below; social vaccine and so on.

IPH seminar: When community care becomes community mental health

IPH seminar: When community care becomes community mental health

Sudarshan Kottai, doctoral candidate at IIT Hyderabad, will be presenting a seminar titled ” When community care becomes community mental health: The disappearance of local voices in community mental health programmes in Kerala.”  

In response to the global call to upscale mental health services in low- and middle-income countries, many NGOs have sprung up in Kerala to address mental health needs by partnering with locally grown, bottom-up, community-led organizations. This talk by Sudarshan is based on a clinical ethnography of community mental health programmes. Drawing on observations, interviews, and narratives between various stakeholders of these programmes, this talk will illustrate how the community-led volunteer-based pain and palliative programmes are gradually being eclipsed by the mental health NGOs. Sudarshan argues that scaling up of services through aggressive task-shifting via local volunteers is a socio-politico-moral process that can pose serious consequences for the lives of the most vulnerable citizens.

IPH Seminar: Understanding Surrogacy

Lopamudra Goswami, doctoral candidate at Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia, will be presenting her work on surrogacy in India in a seminar titled “Understanding Surrogacy.” 

Over the last 6 years, Lopamudra’s research work has focused on Indian surrogate mothers in Gujarat and currently her focus is in the state of Karnataka. India used to be the surrogacy capital of the world. Yet, in general, people often find themselves trying to come up with a rather unique explanation of what it could potentially mean in the event they encounter the word. Often, people are also left surprised to learn the related statistics. For this lecture, Lopamudra will explain some of the nuances of surrogacy as a process.

IPH Seminar: A multi-level governance framework to guide the implementation of patient rights related policies in health facilities

IPH Seminar: A multi-level governance framework to guide the implementation of patient rights related policies in health facilities

On January 23rd, Meena Putturaj, PhD fellow at ITM, Antwerp & TDU, Bengaluru will present the scoping review protocol that she has developed as part of the first phase of her PhD on the implementation of patients rights’ related policies. 

Patient rights are embedded within the broader perspective of human rights and are the application of human rights principles in a health care setting. Patients rights’ are important because they have implications for the quality of health care. There is extensive literature available on the patient rights’ policies, structures, and enforcement mechanisms in high income contexts (especially Europe) but less so for LMICs. The aim of Meena’s proposed scoping review is to come up with a theoretical framework from a multi-level governance perspective to guide the implementation of patient rights related policies in health facilities.
