Tobacco Control Project

Tobacco Control Project

Understanding public policy around tobacco use is required to understand the conflicts of interests of state and non-state actors in India. My work revolved around mapping concerns on tobacco expressed as debates by the parliamentary elected representatives by sourcing the official archives of loksabha and rajyasabha.

Medicines for Visceral Leishmaniasis

Medicines for Visceral Leishmaniasis

WHO identified Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) as a Category I disease (emerging and uncontrolled) and the support to the Elimination control programs in India, Nepal and Bangladesh were intensified in 2005. One of the key approaches that allows accelerated efforts towards the elimination process is by focusing on availability, affordability and accessibility of medicines used to treat VL. This presentation by Ms. Aishwarya Kulkarni, who has completed her BPharm, focuses on the evolution of the medicines for VL, their prices and some of the current issues in this regard.

Integrating mental health

Integrating mental health

The global burden of disease for mental health problems is substantial, but because of scarce resources that are unequally distributed and inefficiently used, the majority of patients do not receive the care they need, especially in low and middle income countries. A proposed solution for this treatment gap is the integration of mental health into primary health care. Evidence shows that task shifting approaches in which non-specialist health workers are trained to recognize and treat common mental health problems can be effective, but it has not yet been widely adopted in the developing world. Furthermore, little research has been done on the quality of mental health care given in projects where mental health is integrated into primary care institutions and how it can be improved. Ms. Ellis Veen’s research project for her masters degree in Global health from Maastricht University and her internship with IPH is about a case study of quality improvement at the Gumballi primary health care centre in Karnataka, India. The main research question was “What constitutes quality of mental health care at Gumballi PHC, how can it be improved and what lessons can we learn from it for the integration of mental health into primary care in India?”

What is the Emerging voices for global health?

Emerging Voices for Global Health (EV4GH) is an innovative multi-partner blended training
program for young, promising and emerging health policy & systems researchers, decision
makers and other health system actors with an interest to become influential global health
voices and/or local change makers. EV4GH coaches “Emerging Voices” to participate
actively in international conferences where global health issues are addressed and to raise
their voice in scientific and policy debates.

 

What is the EV4GH training?

The full EV4GH 2018 venture consists of:

  • E-coaching and distance learning in preparation of a face-to-face training (July –
    Sept 2018)
  • Face-to-face training: scientific presentation, networking and communication skills
    coaching using innovative formats, and content training & field visit to the National
    Health Service (Liverpool, end of September – 5 October 2018)
  • Young researchers (& other changemakers’) pre-conference (6 October 2018)
  • Participation in the Fifth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research
    (Liverpool, 8-12 October 2018)
  • Wrap-up – focusing on Emerging ‘beyond Liverpool’ (Liverpool, 13 October 2018)
  • Membership of EV4GH network and other thematic working groups of Health
    Systems Global

 

Who can apply?

There will be two tracks for which participants can apply to be an EV 2018. While one track
is reserved for researchers involved in health policy and systems research, the other track
seeks to attract health professionals, activists, decision or policy-makers and/or other
health systems actors.
All applicants must have been born on or after 1 January 1978

 

Can I apply for both the tracks?

No! You need to choose only one track that best suits your profile

 

Who is eligible for track – 2?

Applicants must fulfil one of the following:

  • Be involved in a decision-making, implementation or practitioner role within health services or systems
  • Be a passionate voice for strengthening health systems within their local/national health systems in the role of activists, health journalists or patient advocates or otherwise involved in advancing health equity and social justice in their regions.

 

What should my application focus on?

For both tracks, special consideration will be given to people who explicitly include the political dimension of health systems and services in their work, and challenge power in whatever form, based on good evidence.

 

I am from a high-income country, am I still eligible to apply?

Yes! EV4GH is open to all. Focus will be on applicants from the Global South especially LMICs, but candidates from the global north can also apply (they need to have relevant field experience in the global South, though, and work on health policy & systems research in the South)

 

I have just enrolled for a PhD, am I still eligible to apply?

Yes! Please refer to question 6 and if you fulfil at least 2 of the points mentioned there you are eligible to apply

 

What is covered in the scholarship?

In case of a full scholarship the travel, accommodation and living expenses for the duration of the course is covered and participation in the Health systems global symposia from the 8 – 12 October will be covered.

In case of partial scholarships, some of the above aspects will be covered on case to case basis.
