MHA 630 Week 5 DQ 2 Ghana Health Care System recent

 

 

Ghana: Health Care System. In March 1957 the Republic of Ghana was the first African country to achieve its independence from the United Kingdom. The first president, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, commissioned health care facilities to care for indigenous people of Ghana. The health system was fully funded by state revenue; however, the lack of accessible health facilities in rural areas led to poor health outcomes (increase in communicable and non-communicable diseases, high infant and child mortality rates, etc.). The health system eventually experienced a budget crisis and, consequently, moved towards a cash system in which the patient pays for care and medication.

Health Care System

There are four main categories of health delivery systems in Ghana: public, private for-profit, private not-for- profit, and traditional systems. There has been a mandate since 1995 to integrate traditional and mainstream medicine. The health care system in Ghana is divided into three administrative levels: national, regional, and district levels. Additionally, there are several funding sources for the health system in place, however, it is grossly inadequate for achieving the goal of providing access to even basic health care for citizens throughout the country. Watch the video, Dying patients in Search of Basic Healthcare in Ghana that reveals the constraints and challenges in delivering health care in Ghana

MHA 630 Week 5 DQ 1 Nigeria Health Care System recent

 

Nigeria: Health Care System. Nigeria gained independence from the United Kingdom on October 1, 1960. It is comprised of 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Nigeria is home to approximately 380 different ethnic groups with 42 percent of the population residing in urban areas. Like the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria experienced a period of civil unrest immediately following its independence.

Health Care System

The public health care system in Nigeria is loosely based on the British system. Shortly after its independence, the Nigerian government began to expand health services and the way in which it is organized: village level, district level, and local government. The National Health Policy and Strategy to Achieve Health for All Nigerians (1988) guaranteed primary health services to all Nigerians. The following goals were established:

·         Increase health education

·         Promote proper nutrition

·         Family planning

·         Improve maternal and child health services

·         Increase immunization

·         Implement prevention programs and control of endemic/epidemic diseases

·         Accessible treatment for common diseases and injuries
The Nigerian government has not been able to implement the majority of goals outlined in the National Health Policy of 1988 due to lack of financial resources. The government administers the public health care system and trains medical personnel to serve in tertiary and health clinics operating on the state level. Local governments are responsible for the operation of health facilities within their region.

 

 

 

St. Monica’s Health Clinic

St. Monica’s Health Clinic is located in Yakoko, Northern Nigeria. The clinical leader of St. Monica discusses the objectives of the clinic and the importance of the clinic within the community. Note the emphasis on maternal child health in the video. What are the implications of the clinic potentially losing its funding?

Epidemiology

The leading causes of mortality in Nigeria are infectious, parasitic, and diarrheal diseases. Although diseases such as malaria, measles, and diarrhea continue to account for the majority of deaths, other infectious diseases, like cerebrospinal meningitis, yellow fever, and Lassa fever, have steadily increased (Federal Ministry of Health, 2000). Non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer have become more prevalent within the last decade. HIV/AIDS remains the leading cause of death in Nigeria
