Climate Change and Health ImpactsMani, Muthukumara S.; Limin Wang (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2015-04-29)This study was jointly undertaken by the Climate Change and Health Promotion Unit of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the International Centre for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh, and the World Bank. This study had two broad objectives: (1) to assess national vulnerability and impact on major diseases of increased climate variability and extreme events in Bangladesh; and (2) to assess existing institutional and implementation capacity, financial resources at the local level, and existing public programs targeted at climate-sensitive diseases.
Blood Services in Central Asian Health Systems : A Clear and Present Danger of Spreading HIV/AIDS and Other Infectious DiseasesWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2012-06-14)The report discusses inter-related parts of blood transfusions systems, and presents an overview of the parts that need to be strengthened in Central Asia. Numerous parts are in serious need of organizational restructuring, new investment and increased budgetary support for operation and maintenance. This report sets them out such that each can be addressed in turn and some simultaneously. The report also discusses the health threat posed by alarmingly low levels of blood supplies, fostered by a culture that places little value on donating blood, public fear of being infected by giving blood, and the near absence of donor promotion campaigns.
Non-Communicable Diseases in JamaicaWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2012)Jamaica is a Caribbean country that has
initiated comprehensive programs to address Non-Communicable
Diseases (NCDs). The government created the National Health
Fund (NHF) to reduce the cost of treatment of NCDs and
finance some prevention programs. The main objective of this
study is to learn from Jamaica's experience in tackling
major NCDs and related risk factors, to provide policy
options for Jamaica to improve its NCD programs and to share
with other countries the lessons learned from its
experience. The study attempts to answer three questions: a)
whether the NHF and its drug subsidy program have reduced
out-of-pocket spending on NCDs; b) whether access to
treatment of NCDs has improved; and c) what the economic
burden on NCD patients and their families is. The report
presents an overall picture of the epidemiological and
demographic transitions in Jamaica, its current burden of
NCDs, and the change in the trend of NCDs in the past
decade, using publicly available data, particularly data
from the Jamaica living condition household surveys. It
assesses the risk factors and analyzes Jamaica's
response to NCDs with emphasis on the impact of the NHF on
people's lives. Estimates of the economic burden of
NCDs are provided and policy options to improve
Jamaica's NCD programs are suggested. This study
focuses on Jamaica's experience in addressing major
NCDs and their related risk factors with the objective of
learning from Jamaica and providing policy options to
Jamaica to improve its programs.
