Tiyatien Health is a Changemaker

Tiyatien Health, a winner in the Rethinking Mental Health competition, is treating the effects of decades of brutal war in Liberia by training non-doctor health workers and clinicians to work directly with citizens of one of the poorest countries on Earth. The founders are survivors of Liberia's civil war and people living with HIV/AIDS.

Tiyatien Health trained the first non-physicians to administer anti-retroviral therapy in Liberia,and provided the first-ever HIV/AIDS treatments in southeastern Liberia, the poorest corner of the country. Now it is expanding beyond providing public HIV/AIDS treatment to rural communities by working to reverse decades of untreated depression and epilepsy.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Football for Hope project(F4HP) is a project operating since 2011 in 4 cities(Cyanika,Gatuna,Byumba and Burera) of Burera and Gicumbi districts of the northern province of Rwanda.we are using football to reduce social exclusion and HIV/AIDS among street children and other disconnected children.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if football could be used all over the world to fight against HIV/AIDS and poverty and save the lives of so many street children

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

In Rwanda,More than one million has been killed in genocid of 1994 and war.Many people became causalities while others have been orphaned.Due to this war and genocide,Rwanda accounts more than 8 thousands of children living in street life and these people are risky to HIV/AIDS and poverty.Based on the above problems,we are using football to attract them in HIV/AIDS prevention and creation of income generating activities in our 4 cities.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Football for Hope project(F4HP) has operated from 2011 and till today,we have been able to organize 34 football tournaments at which we have attracted more than 525 street children and 300 beggards equipped with HIV/AIDS preventiuon and income generation activities.In addition,we have created 15 anti- HIV/AIDS clubs of street children and these clubs help us to organize teaching sessions,media and radio campaigns,video screenings,organizing theaters on HIV/AIDS transmission,prevention,treatment and care.They also got funds from our association and now they have started more than 5 income generation activities such rabbits and chicken rearing,bee and sheepsrearing keeping which are helping them to get basic needs like food,school fees,etc

What awards or honors has the project received?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Football for hope project has been able to turn possible into impossible life of street children where 525 young people who were struggling on the streets of Burera,Cyanika,Gatuna and Byumba cities.We have created 15 clubs and these clubs have got microcredits from Burera volunteers for development association and now they have started income generation activities such rabbits and sheep rearing,maize and beans cultivation,More than 50% of them have returned to schools while others are in vocational training and currently,they can not have the problems of food,shelter,school fees,etc.In addition,we have organize HIV/AIDS activities among them and now they are skilled on HIV/AIDS prevention.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

Currently,525 street children have abandoned that stress full and struggling life and now they are generating incomes as we explained above.In addition,we have organized 34 football tournaments in our 4 cities,at which we have organized and conducted HIV/AIDS prevention teaching sessions,media and radio campaigns,theatres,video screenings and these activities have attracted so many people because we have had more than 300 beggars and other thousands young people equipped with HIV/AIDS prevention,transmission,treatment and care.

Le potentiel complet de l'impact: Quelles sont les principales stratégies de diffusion pour aller de l'avant?

In our project,we are using football tournaments in order to attract so many young people because in Rwanda,young people like football matches.In addition,the video screenings,theatres are also the activities which attract them.Our vision is to target 1850 street children who are living in the street lives in our cities and these future generation will be taught on HIV/AIDS prevention while many of them will be given a chance to start small income generation or business start up.We want to turn the street children life into bright future life so that they can get education,basic needs,etc.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

First of all,we have income generating activities and the one third of money from those income generation activities are put into revolving fund of the cooperatives and these money helps us to target of other street children.In addition,we have the team of fundraising and they are helping us to do local,national and international fundraising.Finally,we have strong partnership with Burera and Gicumbi youth council through which we get funds.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

ONG, Autre.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

In the northern province of Rwanda,we do not have competitors because no other person who are activing on HIV/AIDS and poverty prevention in street children.Many NGOs are focusing in sex workers,prisoners,students but they forget these people who do not have life,who eat nothing.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

This project has been started by Dr. Fidele NKURUNZIZA in 2011 after expecting that in Burera and Gicumbi , many people were killed during 1994 genocide and war in Rwanda and it has left many widows and orphans as consequence many girls and young people turned into fucked jobs like commercial sex,street life etc which were also affected their lives to be pregnanted involuntary or to be contaminated by the sexual transmitted diseases l mainly HIV/AIDS and others. So after analyzing that situation encountered by young people, Dr.Fidele created football for hope project which help street children to combat HIV/AIDS and poverty through football tournaments and income generation activities.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

F4HP has 3 people who are leaders.These people are Dr.Fidele nkurunziza who is the coordinator and founder of the project,Imanishimwe Jean Pierre is working as fundraising officer while the third one is Dr. Ndahayo Philbert who works as project treasurer.All we are full time workers within the project.In addition,each coperative of the project has a leader which means that our clubs have 15 leaders and they help us to coordinate them.

Audience: Who have you identified as your customer/recipient groups and do these groups value your solution for different reasons? How do you engage different customer/recipient groups to deliver your solution?

My target audience is the youth. This application connects them with online help to the problems they face in their day today life such as drug abuse,HIV/AIDS,unemployment among others.Word of mouth about this application to my target audience has been a way to deliver this solution to them.Another way is the social media.

Scaling the solution: How would the prize money and publicity help you to achieve your objectives over the next two years?

This will help me expand the project on other platforms too. Not all people have android phones hence different versions will be developed to ensure the application also runs on other platforms. I will introduce IVR system in the next two years to ensure that youths get help that they need by just making a call.

Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered

I have previously been involved in an entrepreneurial show named Upstart Africa we were twenty one individuals being guided on coming up with good business ideas that will solve a need in the society and later make profit. During that show i got a clear picture of what entrepreneurship is.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

The Ath Checkpoint is a centrally situated, community-based HIV testing and prevention facility for gay men. We offer peer counseling, rapid test and linkage to health care services. We promote sex risk minimization and contribute to early HIV diagnosis and reduction of new infections

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if we could get zero new infections in a worldwide basis?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

An estimated 30% of people infected with HIV in Greece remain undiagnosed. Late HIV diagnoses and unsafe sex practices contribute to ongoing HIV infections. While the most at risk population in Athens is Men who have Sex with Men, the information needs of this group are not adequately addressed and Health Services are often not able to provide sensitive and candid safer sex information. Moreover there is no routine testing in the community.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Routine HIV testing must become part of the pursuit of sexual well being and pleasure. It must not be a traumatic or time consuming experience and should be an opportunity to learn and adopt safer sex practices. The Ath Checkpoint has created a reputation in the gay community for the friendly environment, the accurate information and the convenient hours of operation and location. The Ath Checkpoint has distributed in its first year of operation more than a 1 million condoms and informative material to clubs, bars, festivals and popular to the young people destinations like Gazi. We also contribute articles in all gay or gay friendly newsletters and we are present on internet dating sites answering question on safer sex

What awards or honors has the project received?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

You work at 9 to 5 job and want to get tested. There is no free service that operates after 5.00 or on Saturday.
You are a gay man and wish to ask candid questions about your sexual sex practices and sexually trasmitted infections which you are not at ease to discuss with nurses.
You go to any gay bar or event and you meet cute and gregarious volunteers of the Ath Checkpoint who offer condoms for free and remind you by their presence that HIV remains a threat that requires smart choices.
You open all gay free press and you see advertisements promoting testing and safer sex.
Finally for those testing positive, we have had a lot of people complaining of very traumatic experience when they got the results

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

Statistics up to date (18 months of operation): Total people tested for HIV: 5.090 Total negative results: 4934 = 96,94% Total positive results: 156 = 3,06% Percentage (%) of HIV+ people linked to further health care services: 89%. Condoms distributed: 1 million, Streetwork number of nights: 106, People approached in streetwork: 4.500, Targeted Testing Campaign Flyers: 20.000, Presence in 15 parties in clubs,
Future impact is concerned: Athens Checkpoint conducted 2600 test in 2013. Our target for 2014 is 3500. We have also started conducting on a weekly and monthly basis tests in municipal health centres. We have opened in March 2014 the Thessaloniki Checkpoint and we have instituted a regular bi monthly presence in major cities of Greece. We have also submitted a funding request to buy a mobile unit which will allow us even further testing outreach.

Le potentiel complet de l'impact: Quelles sont les principales stratégies de diffusion pour aller de l'avant?

The Checkpoints and the visits to other cities will significantly reduce the % of gay man who never got tested (30% in Athens, 40% in Thessaloniki, 50% to rest of Greece). It will decrease the number of undiagnosed in the gay population (estimated at 2.000). We expect to diagnose ⅓ of the gay cases in Greece in 2014 and we shall reduce late diagnoses caused by the reluctance to visit or inability to pay for the public health services which are no longer free. The Ath Checkpoint will change the attitudes on testing and will reduce the ignorance around HIV and thus Stigma and Discrimination

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

The Checkpoint is supported by a foundation from LA and local Pharma industry. We have been able to scale up through economies of scale and optimisation of our operation. The success and recognition attracts many volunteers which further bring cost down. We shall present to the government the results of the first 2 years of operation and data of its cost effectiveness are we are confident it will secure yearly state contribution.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Fondations, Entreprises.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

HIV testing is offered in the Healthcare setting in Public Hospitals and in privately owned diagnostic centres. At the Community level one more organisation has been offering testing through their clinic and a mobile unit in areas targeting migrants, homeless, sex workers etc. Our main difference with the public and the private sector is a) peer non-judgemental counselling, b) rapid test that gives result in 5 minutes, c) convenient schedule from 12.00 to 20.00 and Saturday, d) friendly inviroment, e) constant presence in the gay life of the city, f) presence in social dating sites

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

There were many “oh my god..” moments back in 2011. For example a public clinic called us to “correct” the information we had on our web site of where people could can get tested for free. In the period of the crisis HIV testing seemed to no longer be available for free. Newspaper reports confirmed cases of people who had tested positive on the first test and could not have the confirmatory test for more than a month. A state of affairs that resembles torture. People gave us funny and tragic stories of encounters in the public sector. A doctor giving a positive result in 2010 said to the person to not worry since he would live more than 10 years. Gay man were advised to stop anal sex. The incredulous list can not be served by 750 characters

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

The Ath Checkpoint has 6 part time employees and 1 full time which serves as the coordinator. All employees offer counseling and testing. Further responsibilities are divided and include: outreach volunteers coordination, promotion and communication and fundraising. Ath Checkpoint also relies on a large pool of volunteers that participate in the packaging of condoms and informative material as well as its distribution to all gay related events

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Across Africa, there are hundreds of thousands of children living on the streets, disconnected from the protection of family. They live under constant threat of infection with HIV. Retrak reaches out to these children and, through game-based learning, empowers them to protect themselves.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

Children living outside of the protection of a family were educated and empowered to protect their own health?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Uganda is home to one of the world’s harshest HIV/AIDS epidemics. Street children in Uganda are disconnected from the protection of their families and are at significant risk of exposure to HIV. Absent a cure, prevention is the mainstay in the fight against AIDS. Education and behavior change programs are among the world’s most cost-effective health interventions and also have the greatest potential to reverse the HIV pandemic.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Retrak will use soccer as a vehicle to increase knowledge of HIV, reduce stigma and prevent new infections in street children. We will educate 420 children about the risks of HIV and how to prevent infection using soccer as the metaphor through which the lessons are communicated. The stigma associated with HIV will be lessened through facilitating open communication about HIV and establishing voluntary counseling and testing as a social norm. We will empower street children with the skills needed to adopt healthy behaviors. Most importantly, we will give children who feel worthless and completely isolated the motivation to plan their future away from the streets and to protect themselves from HIV.

What awards or honors has the project received?

One of Kick 4 Life’s activities is the ‘Risk Field’. This is played with 4 cones along a line and signs reading ‘peer pressure’, ‘alcohol’, ‘many partners’ scattered between the cones. Each member of a team kicks the ball through the cones and if they hit a sign, they must do 2 push-ups as a consequence of that behavior.

During the second round, it is not only the individual who has to pay for the risky behavior, but all the team (representing family and community) suffers the consequences. In the third round the whole group is penalized, representing the consequences of an individual’s behavior on the whole society. The message to protect oneself, and thereby protect the family, community and society, is powerfully reinforced.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

We can reach 420 children with this project that will:
1.Build the capacity of Retrak to use games-based learning and the language and power of soccer as tools to educate youth about HIV;
2.Improve children’s health, education and development;
3.Provide children with a lesson that lasts a lifetime and saves lives, one that can be shared through peer learning with friends, family, and their future children;
4.Provide Voluntary Counseling and Testing to 420 children;
5.Help combat the HIV pandemic in Uganda by preventing new infections;
6.Provide children with a secure environment where they can forget the struggle of street life, play and learn, gain confidence, realize their potential, and begin building a future;
7.Allow Retrak to develop new ideas and working methods, via feedback from children, to better understand their needs and help other street children more effectively.

Le potentiel complet de l'impact: Quelles sont les principales stratégies de diffusion pour aller de l'avant?

Retrak aims to spread the Kick 4 Life Program throughout its projects. In 2011 we replicated Kick 4 Life at Retrak Uganda, and in 2013 we trained three organizations in Ethiopia. We want to continue to offer Kick 4 Life to the children in these countries, as new children visit our centers and our programs on a regular basis. These children then carry this knowledge back with them to their homes and communities and the message is spread further. We aim to offer Kick 4 Life in all five of the countries that we work in (Uganda, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Malawi and Kenya) in the next three years.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Retrak’s approach to ensuring financial sustainability is two-fold. First, we ensure that children move to sustainable independent family and community life with no ongoing reliance on Retrak, and second, we're building our capacity to raise support through sustainable long-term local and international partnerships. Since our founding in 1994 Retrak has built a solid base of financial support in the US, Europe and Africa.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Particuliers, Fondations, Gouvernement national.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Retrak differentiates itself by supporting fulltime street children who live and work on the streets and are most at risk. They tend to be highly mobile and live in the shadows so as not to attract attention. This means that standard programs, such as feeding or learning programs, are unable to reach these highly marginalized children. We tailor our programs to meet the needs of those who may fall through the cracks of these larger mainstream programs. Our integrated approach and the emphasis we place on reintegration of children into family-based care and follow-up also make us unique.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Retrak began in response to the large numbers of street children that were playing in an informal weekly game of soccer in Kampala, Uganda. The “aha” moment came when the founders realized that sport provided the ideal, non-threatening, vehicle by which the children could rebuild their trust in adults and, with professional help, be given a chance to move away from the streets. Today Retrak works with street children in Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi. We also provide support to the families of the children in order to tackle the root causes of the problems that led them onto the streets in the first place.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

The staff are part of Retrak Uganda’s professional staff team, including highly skilled teachers and social workers, that provide a broad range of services for street children in Kampala, including catch-up education, psycho-social counseling, reuniting them with their families and follow-up care. The staff that will engage with the children are trained social workers who use sport on a daily basis to engage with street children.

Building Trust in Public Health Clinics in Togo

Année de création

2004

Phase : Sélectionnez la description ci-dessous correspondant le mieux à l’état actuel de votre solution.

Stabilité (le projet a dépassé les premières étapes et obtient de bons résultats)

Lancement important

In Togo, West Africa, public health clinics go unused in part because patients do not believe they will receive quality care. By using Community Health Workers (CHWs) recruited from the local community, we can build community trust in public clinics and ensure access to quality health care.

Inspiration : Quelle est l’une des façons par laquelle votre projet ose demander « Et si… ? »

What if health clinics in Togo were so welcoming and patient-centered, they made people WANT to visit them as often as necessary?

Problème: Quel problème ce projet essaye t-il de résoudre?

While 62% of Togo’s population has geographic access (<5km) to public health facilities, only 30% of the population uses these facilities according to the Togolese Ministry of Health. Perceived poor quality of care and mistrust of public clinics contribute to low utilization rates in Togo. Patients lack confidence in the ability of the public clinics to provide quality treatment and therefore do not seek care at the clinics.

Solution: Quelle est la solution proposée? S.v.p soyez précis!

Hope Through Health’s Community Health Workers (CHWs) are trained members of the community that provide home-based support to patients living with HIV/AIDS. CHWs link clinics and the community. Their role is to establish and maintain strong relationships with patients, including confidentiality, guide them through a continuum of care and reinforce clinic messages in the home. As community members themselves, CHWs are able to build the trust of the community in public health clinics and providers, leading to elimination of perception of poor quality and increased clinic utilization rates. As staff members of public clinics, CHWs have the trust of public clinic staff and providers to extend their impact into the home and community.

Exemple : Décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant comment la solution améliore la situation ; indiquez les principales activités concernées.

Consider a patient who stops taking her ARVs when she suffers from negative side effects. If she misses an appointment to refill her prescription, a CHW is immediately notified and sent to the patient's home. The CHW will explain the importance of taking ARVs and how to alleviate negative side effects to the patient. Furthermore, a CHW will communicate to the clinic when structural barriers impede access to care. For example, if a patient can only visit the clinic on market day and ARV refills are not available that day, she cannot receive her life-changing medicine. Program and clinic staff work together to eliminate such barriers, and follow up with patients. CHWs provide an invaluable link between patients and the health system.

Impact : Quel a été l’impact des travaux jusqu’à ce jour ?

Thus far, Hope Through Health has relied on the use of Community Health Workers, recruited from the community and trained, to build strong relationships between patients and public health clinics. CHWs also voice the concerns of the patient population they support. While HTH has consistently received positive feedback from our patients, HTH hopes to continue building trust in the public clinics, using patient feedback to further improve clinics and continuing to increase utilization rates. Over 1,666 patients currently receive care through HTH and HTH has plans to scale up over the next few years. Furthermore, less than 1% of our over 800 patients on ART were lost to follow up in 2013, demonstrating the current effectiveness of our CHW program.

Réalisation du potentiel : Quelles sont les principales stratégies d'expansion pour l'avenir ? (Prenez en considération l’expansion géographique, les réformes en matière de conduite à suivre et la reproduction ou adoption indépendante de l’idée ou autres mécanismes.)

Moving forward, Hope Through Health hopes to expand its services from HIV/AIDs to maternal and child health. By offering maternal and child health services, Hope Through Health and its CHWs will be able to provide care for a larger population in the northern Kara region of Togo. We also maintain a close relationship with the Ministry of Health, which is beneficial as we advocate for a national scale up of a CHW program in Togo.

Obstacles : Quels sont les obstacles susceptibles de nuire à la réussite de votre projet et comment prévoyez-vous les surmonter ?

One of the main barriers is that people may be hesitant to welcome CHWs into their homes for a number of reasons, one being that they are not comfortable disclosing their HIV status to their community. HTH has other programs in place to combat the social stigma of HIV, including educational and support groups. Furthermore, CHWs are specifically trained to deal with difficult situations.

In 2006, Sadate was 10 years old. Despite being an extremely sick child, he had never received modern medical treatment. Then we helped train a Community Health Worker in Sadate's village. She accompanied Sadate to take a free HIV test. He tested positive and was admitted to the hospital weighing only 20 pounds. Sadate began free antiretroviral therapy and in one month was discharged from the hospital. His Community Health Worker followed Sadate at home. In one year his weight doubled. He started school and ran for the first time in his life. Today he is a successful student and a young community leader. His Community Health Worker is considered a hero by her community.

Veuillez préciser votre réponse à la question ci-dessus.

The primary goal of the CHW Program is to reduce barriers to and improve the quality of patient care services. In weekly meetings, CHWs have the opportunity to share patient concerns directly with program and clinical staff. Data is compiled monthly and shared with all stakeholders. Together, the CHWs, program, and clinic staff work together to make changes that address patient concerns. Once changes are implemented, CHWs follow up with patients to ensure that the new systems are effective. This feedback is again shared in the weekly team meetings and changes are made as necessary.

Marché: Qui d'autre se penche sur le même problème? Comment le projet proposé diffère t-il de ces approches?

HTH is the only international organization providing health care services in the northern Kara region of Togo. Although other groups use CHWs, our CHWs are specifically recruited from the community that they will serve, trained initially and provided ongoing training sessions, and linked with public health clinics. Because HTH believes that communities can transform the dynamics of health care delivery, we train and support patients and community members to fill key service delivery roles. Their involvement ensures that our programs respond directly to patient priorities.

Concernant l'utilisation faite des feedback collectés; Quels types d'informations essayez-vous d'obtenir? Auprès de qui? destiné à qui? et pour apporter quel changement?

CHWs serve as a link between patients and clinical staff. During home visits, CHWs not only collect medical data from patients to inform referrals if necessary, but also listen to any concerns or barriers that patients face in accessing or receiving medical care. In weekly supervisory meetings with the CHW Program Director, program and clinic staff, CHWs are able to share patient concerns. The program and clinic staff work together to find solutions to common problems that patients experience. Once appropriate changes are made, CHWs are able to follow up with patients during home visits to learn how the new systems are working and whether or not more modifications are needed. Thus the feedback loop ensures that patients' concerns reach the health care providers and managers who then design and implement programs to better meet patients' needs.

Si autres, merci de spécifier.

Pouvez-vous décrire brièvement la manière dont vous collectez les feedback?

Feedback is collected through standardized paper forms, designed for different types of patients and through anecdotal evidence as told by patients to CHWs on their home visits. Hope Through Health is also in the process of implementing a mobile health data collection system using CommCare. This new program will facilitate easier collection and management of data. CHW-collected data, whether through paper or mobile forms, is transmitted to the CHW Program Director and monitoring, evaluation and quality improvement (MEQ) Director for analysis. The Directors analyze and present trends to CHWs and other clinic staff monthly to generate discussion and solicit feedback. Through the joint processes of weekly meetings to discuss patient challenges and monthly meetings to analyze data trends, health clinic staff are informed of and held accountable to respond to the expressed needs of their patients.

Donner deux exemples concrets sur la façon dont les systèmes d'évaluation participatifs ont abouti à l'élaboration d'un programme ou d'une politique plus conforme aux désirs des citoyens.

CHWs have effectively lobbied on behalf of patients numerous times. In Togo, the fee-for-hospitalization system is a major barrier to receiving care. This system requires that a patient pay to enter the hospital, and once hospitalized, a patient must have someone to bring them food, fill their prescriptions at the pharmacy and pay for medications in order to receive treatment. Because of the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS, some patients had not disclosed their status to a family member, and upon hospitalization, had no support system, thereby comprising their care. The CHWs brought this issue to the program and clinic staff. To address this problem, the health system provided additional training to CHWs and clinic-based staff on psychosocial support, specifically emphasizing disclosure strategies. As a result, CHWs began to focus more heavily on providing support to patients on how to cope with stigma and how to disclose their status to a trusted confident. The program set a measurable goal to work toward, of having 85% of patients identify a confident with whom she/he shares her/his HIV status. Therefore, should hospitalization occur, the patient has someone to care for them. In the interim, CHWs provide support for hospitalized patients as necessary. Most importantly the efforts to provide disclosure counseling and support have been widely embraced by patients.

A second example is that of nutrition kits. Many patients expressed difficulty meeting expanded nutrition requirements during the first month of beginning antiretroviral therapy (ART). This medication is required to be taken on a full stomach to decrease the likelihood of side effects. CHWs brought this feedback from their patients to the program and clinic staff, who then made a decision to provide nutrition supplementation kits to patients newly initiating ART. The supplemental kits support good nutrition practices, reduce side effects from ART, improve ART adherence and reduce the risk of loss to follow up. This system-level change resulted directly from patient feedback and was widely appreciated by patients.

S'il y avait une chose que vous pourriez changer pour augmenter l'impact de votre système d'évaluation participatif , laquelle serait-elle?

As a nonprofit organization, HTH has limited funds to implement new programs when patients express concern over current barriers or systems. These resource constraints are even more severe within the public sector. While patient concerns do not usually necessitate large programmatic overhauls, the small costs involved may still prohibit adoption of best practices by the public sector on a larger scale. To increase the impact of the feedback loop, HTH will continue to advocate for greater public funding for essential programs.

Croissance (votre pilote fonctionne et commence à prendre de l'ampleur)

Lancement important

TIP improves health outcomes for vulnerable populations by partnering with local stakeholders to build clinical care capacity, utilize data to provide quality care, & address barriers to sustainability from both the perspective of individual care recipients and health delivery systems.

Inspiration : Quelle est l’une des façons par laquelle votre projet ose demander « Et si… ? »

front line health care providers & the recipients of health care drove the design & sustainability of health care delivery & quality? Reimagining the concept of Community Health!

Problème: Quel problème ce projet essaye t-il de résoudre?

The vast majority of interventions to prevent illness & manage chronic disease depend upon the transfer of knowledge that leads to behavior change at the individual level. Success depends upon front line health care providers' capacity to inspire change & individual capacity to implement change. Providers are often asked to do more with already limited resources, & individuals are expected to make changes that seem unrealistic or foreign.

Solution: Quelle est la solution proposée? S.v.p soyez précis!

Partnership, Capacity Building, Data Quality, Sustainability!

TIP improves health outcomes for vulnerable populations by partnering with health systems to bridge the gap between the idealism of top-down health protocols & the reality of limited resources. We work with both providers & recipients of health care to identify barriers & develop innovative solutions for quality care while building cross-sector partnerships to support long term sustainability. We utilize a Continuous Quality Improvement model to demonstrate the benefits of accurate, consistent data for training, staff engagement, quality patient care, & program improvements. TIP strives to transfer programming to local ownership as a strategy for long term sustainability.

Exemple : Décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant comment la solution améliore la situation ; indiquez les principales activités concernées.

TIP & 7 health center partners have established a Continuous Quality Improvement program that objectively assesses Clinical Care, Data Management, Logistics, Mom-Centered Systems, & Health Education. Initial results were presented at our first collective Nutrition for HIV-Exposed Infants Program Meeting in July 2013. Nurses chose 4 areas they would like to improve, & TIP worked with them to meet this goal. We repeated the assessment in November 2013. Nurses' ability to calculate z scores for diagnosis of malnutrition rose 148%, communication of infants' health status to mothers rose 100%, & HIV testing for infants with severe malnutrition rose 300%! Nurses will focus on timely HIV testing of HIV exposed infants for the next 4 month cycle.

Impact : Quel a été l’impact des travaux jusqu’à ce jour ?

Health center nurses have become engaged in quality improvement activities. They more clearly understand the reasoning behind National protocols, & trust that they have the capacity to improve their ability to provide care despite their very limited resources. They now believe that they can have a positive impact on the health & well-being of their community because “bringing data to life” allows them to see this first hand. Amongst NHI Program participants, there has been ZERO transmission of HIV from mother to child. Three children are HIV + because they were referred to the program after diagnosis. We are expanding our program to include prenatal care in hopes that we can identify HIV+ mothers earlier and provide essential services to prevent this transmission. Our ultimate goal is Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV. We are confident that we will reach this goal.

Réalisation du potentiel : Quelles sont les principales stratégies d'expansion pour l'avenir ? (Prenez en considération l’expansion géographique, les réformes en matière de conduite à suivre et la reproduction ou adoption indépendante de l’idée ou autres mécanismes.)

We create replicable programs that are thriving in a resource-limited setting & producing quantifiable results, & we have demonstrated the effectiveness of inclusive program development that fosters engagement amongst all stakeholders. TIP will collaborate with the Ministry of Health to scale programming to other rural settings. Our approach to data collection, analysis, & system improvement can be replicable in any setting. Our bottom-up approach that reaches to meet the traditional top-down, protocol-driven medical system promises to revolutionize how health is defined & care is provided.

Obstacles : Quels sont les obstacles susceptibles de nuire à la réussite de votre projet et comment prévoyez-vous les surmonter ?

Change is slow. We strive to retain engagement & long term confidence in the process by highlighting short term gains. TIP also recognizes that our approach is successful in part because of our close partnership with the community we work in. To scale this will require a thoughtful approach that can replicate the ongoing capacity-building support we provide. As in any program, financial resources are important. Our major resource lies within the people providing and receiving care. This allows for high impact at a relatively low financial cost.

Circonstances fondatrices : Racontez les circonstances qui ont amené le fondateur à pousser son cri « Eureka ! » et à démarrer son action ou à entrevoir son potentiel de réussite.

Dr. Leonard was the first physician to volunteer for the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative's clinical mentoring program in Rwanda. She continued to work as an educator & consultant to the health care providers in Ruli, Rwanda beyond her initial visit. Inspired by the dedication of the Ruli community to find solutions to their local challenges, as well as the belief that sustainable change must engage all stakeholders, she founded The Ihangane Project in partnership with then hospital medical director Dr. Jean de Dieu Ngirabega. Ihangane means ‘to be patient’ in Kinyarwanda, the native language of Rwanda. The Ihangane Project’s goal is to mobilize local communities to cultivate their own innovative solutions to their local health needs.

Partenariats : Parlez-nous de vos partenariats.

We collaborate with community leaders in health, business, & agriculture, as well as recipients of medical care. We form strategic alliances with organizations, such as Catapult Design, that provide technical expertise for the non-medical aspects of the programs. Our partnership with the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business guides our thinking in terms of business models, consumer satisfaction, system efficiencies, & communication.

Comment votre projet s'assure principalement que la rétroaction donne des résultats?

Démontrer comment les boucles de rétroaction peuvent faire une différence dans la vie des gens.

Veuillez préciser votre réponse à la question ci-dessus.

The Ihangane Project integrates feedback loops into every aspect of our programming. We believe that bringing data to life is an essential teaching tool, especially when behavior change is required to reach our goal. The ambivalence associated with behavior change is often rooted in the risk of trying something new. Whether our goal is financial stability for farming cooperatives or preventing childhood malnutrition, well-presented data can demonstrate the short term gains associated with the change and reinforce the benefit of continuing along the path of the desired change.

Marché: Qui d'autre se penche sur le même problème? Comment le projet proposé diffère t-il de ces approches?

HealthQual International promotes the internal integration of a Continuous Quality Improvement model into health care systems. The Ihangane Project has modeled much of our work from this organization's US-based work specific to HIV care. We feel that our programming is unique because of our strong relationship with health care providers and health care recipients. TIP introduces the concepts of CQI, and also helps to build capacity so that this new system feels like an additional tool rather than a burdensome extra step.

2nd Round Questions

lire plus↑ cacher↑ cacher

Concernant l'utilisation faite des feedback collectés; Quels types d'informations essayez-vous d'obtenir? Auprès de qui? destiné à qui? et pour apporter quel changement?

TIP is trying to get information regarding health system processes and clinical care outcomes to both health care providers and recipients of care. TIP's feedback loop provides health care workers with evidence that their interventions do lead to good outcomes and that they can adjust their processes to further improve outcomes over time. Many health care providers doubt their ability to have true influence over health outcomes in their communities. By demonstrating that improvements in processes lead to improvements in health outcomes, care providers are inspired to collect and analyze clinical data accurately and adjust systems to meet the needs of their patients. In addition, feedback loops are used to engage health care recipients in care. As HIV+ mothers see the improvements in their children's health, they are more likely to trust in the guidance of their health care workers. They also keep their HCWs accountable because they know what is expected of them and want to know their OCL scores!

Excel Sheets

Pouvez-vous décrire brièvement la manière dont vous collectez les feedback?

Currently, we have 3 means of data collection. Health centers provide monthly reports of health outcomes such as malnutrition and HIV infection amongst HIV-exposed infants. In addition, TIP staff perform Observational Check Lists every 4 months to assess adherence to protocols and effectiveness of current systems. Thirdly, focus groups are conducted every 4 months amongst program participants. Throughout this process, health care providers are given opportunities to provide feedback to TIP regarding what is working and what is not. We often incorporate their feedback into our programs. For example, HCWs recently informed TIP that Ministry of Health supervisors document 'areas in need of improvement' in a book that is held by the nursing director of each health center. HCWs advised TIP to write our observations here, as well as the indicators nurses have chosen to focus improvements on, so that HCWs throughout the health center are aware and the nursing supervisor will be held accountable for supporting improvements.

Donner deux exemples concrets sur la façon dont les systèmes d'évaluation participatifs ont abouti à l'élaboration d'un programme ou d'une politique plus conforme aux désirs des citoyens.

1. TIP performed a baseline assessment of health care workers' (HCWs) ability to correctly measure nutritional status of infants. We found that many HCWs did not know how to accurately collect or analyze this data. We also found high rates of malnutrition that went untreated. We presented our findings at a gathering of all 7 health centers. HCWs were able to discuss their challenges and identify means for improving. TIP supported additional training for HCWs and encouraged them to identify innovative ways to promote accurate measurement. Several nurses engaged mothers by teaching them how to accurately assess nutrition status. When reassessed, HCWs improved dramatically. More importantly, they were more confident in their diagnosis of malnutrition and children were more likely to be referred for appropriate treatment.

2. HIV testing of HIV exposed infants was not occurring at appropriate time intervals. By presenting this data in a non-threatening way, HCWs were able to brainstorm means of improving this process. In addition, they identified challenges at the National Laboratory level. TIP was able to discuss this with the Ministry of Health, and we now anticipate more rapid turn around of test results. Mothers were also engaged in this process, and they have developed a system to assist HCWs in remembering the timing of the tests. We will assess for improvement later this month.

S'il y avait une chose que vous pourriez changer pour augmenter l'impact de votre système d'évaluation participatif , laquelle serait-elle?

TIP gathers large amounts of data. We struggle with identifying ways of collecting and analyzing this data. In addition, data is only helpful when it is accurate. TIP spends a significant amount of time stressing the benefits of accurate data collection. This can be labor intensive but worthwhile!

Quelles sont les principales utilisations que vous pouvez imaginer pour Feedback Store?

TIP has reviewed the Applications on Feedback Store. There are many interesting opportunities, but it would be helpful to have a little more vetting. It is unclear which Applications would be appropriate for our organization and how far long each App is in development. A section on strengths/challenges might be useful.

Quelle est la chose que vous aimeriez le plus voir changer pour améliorer le processus de la compétition?

This process is a little labor intensive. We were somewhat discouraged by the feedback section that described us as below average in the majority of categories! It was hard to know how to interpret this.

Que faites vous pour être sûr que les feedback reçus par les participants sont avérés et vérifiés? Comment savent ils à quoi leurs feedback seront utilisés.

We use process observation and clinical data to inspire improvements in health care delivery and engagement of health care recipients. TIP's approach is intended to foster a sense of empowerment both of HCWs and health care recipients.

Observatoire communautaire du droit à la santé

Année de création

Phase : Sélectionnez la description ci-dessous correspondant le mieux à l’état actuel de votre solution.

Croissance (votre pilote fonctionne et commence à prendre de l'ampleur)

Lancement important

Face à un taux de mortalité au Burkina toujours élevé (11,8 pour mille), compte tenu de l'inadaptation des politiques notre projet vise à doter les communautés des pouvoirs nécessaires pour influencer les réformes sanitaires depuis la base afin de les rendre efficaces.

Inspiration : Quelle est l’une des façons par laquelle votre projet ose demander « Et si… ? »

L'organisation du système de soins était décidée par les populations et prise en compte par les décideurs, est-ce que les politiques ne seront pas plus efficace?

Problème: Quel problème ce projet essaye t-il de résoudre?

Depuis la Déclaration d'Alma Ata en 1978 prônant la participation des populations à la gestion des systèmes de santé, les communautés sont toujours tenues à l'écart des décisions des réformes de santé. La conséquence est l'adoption et la mise en place de politiques inadaptées donc inefficaces face aux taux de mortalité qui demeurent élevés: mortalité générale 11,8 pour 1000; infantile 91,7 pour mille; maternelle 307,3 pour 100 000.

Solution: Quelle est la solution proposée? S.v.p soyez précis!

Notre observatoire vise à renforcer l'empowerment des communautés afin qu'elles puissent s'approprier l'analyse, la mise en oeuvre, le suivi et l'évaluation des politiques de santé. Elles pourraient ainsi, sur la base de données factuelles, faire des propositions pertinentes sur les réformes nécessaires pour prendre en compte leurs besoins de santé en tenant compte de leurs réalités. Ainsi les communautés peuvent par elles mêmes:
- analyser les insuffisances du système de soins
- proposer des mesures correctrices pertinentes
- militer pour leur adoption et leur mise en oeuvre
- suivre leur mise en oeuvre
- évaluer leur impact
- relever les insuffisance et continuer le cycle de renforcement

Impact social

Exemple : Décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant comment la solution améliore la situation ; indiquez les principales activités concernées.

En 2012, ruptures de stocks d'ARV contre le VIH/Sida à cause de non financement de l'achat des médicaments contre le Sida par le budget nationale. Collecte de données par l'observatoire les durées des ruptures et les conséquences sur la santé des patients et le système de santé en général. A l'aide de ces informations probantes, nous avons interpellé (réunions politiques, conférences de presse) le ministère de la santé, le Président de la République avec des témoignages de personnes infectées. Nous avons obtenu la mise en place d'un comité de crise et l'inscription d'une ligne budgétaire dans le budget national 2013 pour l'achat des ARV et autres réactifs (8 milliards de FCFA) contre le Sida.

Impact : Quel a été l’impact des travaux jusqu’à ce jour ?

Notre plaidoyer a contribué:
- à réduire le coût mensuel du traitement ARV de 360 000 FCFA à 42 500 FCFA
- obtenir la gratuité à 100% des personnes sous ARV au Burkina (37 000 personnes)
- obtenir un engagement financier de l'Etat à hauteur de 8 milliards par an à l'achat des médicaments contre le Sida
En 2014, notre observatoire va prendre en compte en plus du VIH/Sida, le paludisme et la tuberculose et renforcera son positionnement dans les régions sanitaires. Nous espérons à travers cela :
- contribuer à réduire de moitié d'ici 2015 les taux de mortalité actuels au Burkina Faso
- à donner du pouvoir de décision aux communautés dans les 360 districts sanitaires du Burkina (à travers des comités et de veille et de suivi sanitaire)
- à améliorer la qualité des services de santé et le respect des droits des patients

Simon KABORE a été un militant des droits de l'homme avant d'entrer à l'école de formation professionnelle des agents de santé. Devenu professionnel de la santé, son engagement pour les droits de l'homme l'a conduit à s'intéresser au droit à la santé. C'est ainsi qu'avec des amis de la santé et d'autres secteurs (éducation, communication, finances, droit) il a créé le réseau accès aux médicaments essentiels pour influencer les politiques de santé. Très vite, ils sont compris que l'influence doit passer par une forte implication des bénéficiaires et des informations pertinentes. Ce qui leur a conduit à permettre en place l'observatoire.

Le Ministère de la santé et les partenaires financiers réalisent des missions de suivi et d'évaluation sur le terrain pour apprécier la qualité des services. Cependant, ces missions sont ponctuelles, complaisantes et n'associent pas les bénéficiaires. Des rencontres de planification sont souvent faites en associant les communautaires, mais sans renforcement de capacité pour leur permettre de participer activement. Notre projet est basé sur l'évaluation des services par les bénéficiaires et nous renforçons leur empowerment pour être des forces de propositions selon leurs besoins réels.

Building Trust in Public Health Clinics in Togo

In Togo, West Africa, public health clinics go unused in part because patients do not believe they will receive quality care. By using Community Health Workers (CHWs) recruited from the local community, we can build community trust in public clinics and ensure access to quality health care.

Argumentaire éclair : Fournissez une explication en 3 ou 4 phrases courtes. Communiquez une brève synthèse. C’est la première introduction que les personnes intéressées auront de votre solution.

Women are often economically, culturally, and socially disadvantaged in Egypt, making them vulnerable to HIV, its related stigma and being denied their rights, the project aims to build the skills of women living with HIV/AIDS to have a more effective role in the national AIDS response.

Problème : Quel est le problème que cette solution essaie de résoudre ? Décrivez le contexte spécifique dans lequel cette solution s’applique.

Women living with HIV/AIDS face major challenges socially, economically and psychologically, and the is significant lack of skills to create mechanisms to voice their needs and advocate for their rights to relevant stakeholders.

Rendering them less likely to be aware of their rights, limiting their access to information increases the likelihood of self-stigmatization and self-isolation and limited opportunities to support themselves.

Solution : Quelle est la solution proposée ? Soyez spécifique !

This project has been developed to enhance, sustain and scale up the ongoing work through building the capacity of 20 women (living with and/or affected by HIV/AIDS) in 4 geographical areas to be able to engage in setting up, sustaining and expanding programs targeting people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and being able to provide peer support for other People living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA).

The proposed approach utilizes the technical capacities of PLHA to propagate and support building the knowledge and skills of other PLHA, thus, building upon the previous experiences of PLHA. By involving them in the implementation of the project, this intervention will also mitigate the financial burden HIV has placed on many of them.

Impact social

Exemple : Décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant comment la solution améliore la situation ; indiquez les principales activités concernées.

The approach is focused on empowerment through skills and information being delivered through extensive training program of 6 modules (3 days each)over 1 year span.

Potential candidates will be as 6 each from Cairo and Alexandria,4 each from Delta and Upper Egypt Governorates.

Proposed modules tackles issues as HIV/AIDS and living positively, Gender, human rights, Proposal writing and budgeting and Strategic Planning.

After the program,they will be encouraged to tailor projects, access to small scale grant will be provided to 3 participants in a competitive approach.

also,all participants will be provided with technical support and funding mapping and guidance on the long run to ensure the sustainability of their actions.

Impact : Quel a été l’impact des travaux jusqu’à ce jour ?

through the implementation of this idea, within a year of time span, it is expected to have:
1- Twenty women empowered with skills and capacities to take the lead within AIDS response and advocacy for rights of PLHA.
2-Minimum of new 3 small-scale projects/activities responding to the needs and rights of women living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
3- decreasing the gender gap within people living with HIV/AIDS involved in the AIDS response nationally.
4- economic empowerment of women through building their careers in development.

Obstacles : Quels sont les obstacles susceptibles de nuire à la réussite de votre projet et comment prévoyez-vous les surmonter ?

barriers that can hinder the execution of the project in a timely manner, can be summarized into:

1- political turmoil taking place in Egypt and its consequences on civil society.
2- geographical barriers to some of the participants.
3- program drop outs and lack of year-long commitment.

Réalisation du potentiel : Quelles sont les principales stratégies d'expansion pour l'avenir ? (Prenez en considération l’expansion géographique, les réformes en matière de conduite à suivre et la reproduction ou adoption indépendante de l’idée ou autres mécanismes.)

upon success of the project as a pilot, potentials to be a regular annual program can be explored, including number of applicants, geographical areas included, topics addressed, number and value of grants awarded to those finishing the program.

in addition, participants from the program can be supported to access their own grants to implement projects of their own (under the umbrella of the NGO or outside).

The program autonomy to be handled by participants themselves is also a possibility.

Marché : Quelles sont les autres entités qui s’attaquent au problème décrit ici et comment la solution proposée se démarque-t-elle de leurs efforts ?

Despite governmental commitment to elimination of gender inequities and gender-based abuse and violence and increase the capacity of women and girls to protect themselves from HIV as part of the National Strategic Plan, through capacity building, vocational trainings and media sensitization, these efforts remain insufficient to provide specific intervention towards inclusion and empowerment of women to be a key stakeholder at the national AIDS response and relevant decision making processes as well as being able to live positively free from all forms of stigma and discrimination.

Plan de viabilité : Quel est le plan visant à assurer la viabilité financière de cette solution ?

Although the importance of availability of funds, this project can be sustained through channeling the conduction and lessons learnt into a training manual that can be used by relevant actors to fulfill the project's aim, also, the NGO and/or previous participants can help in assisting the implementation of the program by other actors.

Circonstances fondatrices : Racontez les circonstances qui ont amené le fondateur à pousser son cri « Eureka ! » et à démarrer son action ou à entrevoir son potentiel de réussite.

Friends of Life is the only NGO in Egypt that is led by PLHA, therefore the NGO is ideally placed to ensure the welfare of individuals and families infected and affected by HIV and AIDS.

The NGO frequently visits its strategy based on monitoring numerous infected and affected individuals/families and held multiple discussions with them to determine their specific needs and tailor specific interventions to meet those needs and also going beyond psycho-social and basic medical needs, namely providing a space for PLHA to communicate with relavant stakeholders and make sure that their rights are advanced and protected.

Partenariats : Parlez-nous de vos partenariats.

Since the foundation of Friends of life in 2008, the NGO has been constantly supported by UN agencies in Egypt working on HIV/AIDS, including UNAIDS, UNICEF and UNDP, also it contributed to the foundation of the National Forum of NGOs against stigma and discrimination in Egypt in 2010.

in addition, the NGO works with close attaches to other civil society actors working on Human rights, gender, stigma and justice contexts.

As the largest private provider of family planning products in the developing world, DKT International makes an impact by providing contraceptives through social marketing. Women can stay in school longer and increase reproductive and economic autonomy by having contraceptive choice and access.

Problème : Quel est le problème que cette solution essaie de résoudre ? Décrivez le contexte spécifique dans lequel cette solution s’applique.

Pakistan has the sixth largest population in the world. Women have an average of 4 children while maternal mortality remains high at around 276 deaths per 100,000 births, unchanged over the past decade for poor and rural women. In a conservative country with a ballooning population, women are left without access to the economic market because they are bound to raising children. Many of the time, this decision is left out of their hands.

Solution : Quelle est la solution proposée ? Soyez spécifique !

DKT Pakistan has begun to reach Pakistani couples and more than 6 million women (24% of married women of reproductive age) with unmet needs for contraception, enabling women to have more choices for high quality products and regular access to family planning training and education. Our program emphasizes long-term methods (such as IUDs), adding diversity to current methods that are dependent on short-term contraceptives (such as condoms). DKT Pakistan is already making an impact. By providing a variety of contraceptive methods, women have choices and are able to make decisions over their reproduction. In the long term, women will be able to make more decisions and enter the economic market as they become in charge of their family planning.

Impact social

lire plus↑ cacher↑ cacher

Exemple : Décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant comment la solution améliore la situation ; indiquez les principales activités concernées.

By providing a diversity of contraceptive resources, women are able to gain power in deciding when to have children. In this case, women have the opportunity to pursue more education or employment opportunities as they control when to become pregnant or the amount of space between their pregnancies. Once they have equal time at school or pursuing professional gains, without the interference of unplanned pregnancy, they overcome one barrier to economic equality. By using social marketing to sell contraceptives, our initiative is not perceived as a ‘program’ by consumers. Rather, they are seen as normal commercial goods that offer consumers a benefit at an affordable price. Because they are purchased, they are more likely to be used.

Impact : Quel a été l’impact des travaux jusqu’à ce jour ?

DKT Pakistan’s program, Dhanak, addresses problems of supply and demand that have kept Pakistan’s contraceptive prevalence rate lower than its neighbors, with a focus on rural areas. So far in 2013, DKT Pakistan has sold over 3 million condoms, almost 100,000 oral contraceptives, 27,000 emergency contraceptives, 20,000 IUDs, as well as implants, MVA kits, and medical abortion drugs. This offers a glimpse into the exciting future for DKT’s programming in Pakistan that will provide more resources to more people. These products sold in 2013 translates to 70,000 pregnancies prevented, 28,000 abortions averted, and 115 maternal deaths averted per 10,000 CYPs. DKT is now working to address supply-side barriers especially in rural areas where there are few providers and outlets for family planning products, and working to train mid-level providers such as midwives and lay health workers.

Obstacles : Quels sont les obstacles susceptibles de nuire à la réussite de votre projet et comment prévoyez-vous les surmonter ?

The conservative nature of Pakistan poses a potential barrier to the success of our project. However, with our social marketing approach, we are not only providing contraceptive resources and information, but we are also infiltrating media and changing behaviors through exposure to these products. DKT Pakistan instigates conversation while changing the dialogue surrounding family planning. DKT's ads, like the JOSH condom commercial, are sometimes met with controversy, but ultimately this results in higher sales, more use, and more conversation.

Réalisation du potentiel : Quelles sont les principales stratégies d'expansion pour l'avenir ? (Prenez en considération l’expansion géographique, les réformes en matière de conduite à suivre et la reproduction ou adoption indépendante de l’idée ou autres mécanismes.)

Moving forward, we would supply more contraceptive products to more locations (specifically looking to reach more rural communities). We estimate that 200 clinics will be in operation by the end of this year all over the country (37 were working in September). DKT Pakistan has trained almost 900 midwives in MVA handling and IUD insertion; provided advocacy and educational initiatives promoting family planning with young adults; has premiered with a controversial JOSH condom TV ad; and has distributed IUD information throughout urban and rural areas by medical officers. We plan to continue these initiatives and expand to more innovative and widespread projects to make an impact.

Marché : Quelles sont les autres entités qui s’attaquent au problème décrit ici et comment la solution proposée se démarque-t-elle de leurs efforts ?

DKT Pakistan‘s focus on rural areas combined with modern and edgy marketing sets us apart from other contraceptive social marketing initiatives. DKT Pakistan provides a wide range of products that have not been readily available, and we are extending to those who have yet to be reached. We do this in a way that provokes dialogue about family planning while leveraging the private sector. DKT has ventured to rural areas to provide resources and has sparked the conversation surrounding family planning. We are able to reach more women in more places with our products and media presence.

Plan de viabilité : Quel est le plan visant à assurer la viabilité financière de cette solution ?

Social marketing contraceptives and family planning services is highly cost-effective. Program revenues cover approximately 70% of our operating costs and this figure has been steadily climbing over the past several years. Our cost per CYP was less than $2, which was made possible by increasing efficiencies to near self-sufficiency in several of DKT’s other programs.

Circonstances fondatrices : Racontez les circonstances qui ont amené le fondateur à pousser son cri « Eureka ! » et à démarrer son action ou à entrevoir son potentiel de réussite.

Pakistan is one of the largest countries in the world with 8 million women with unmet family planning needs. This means that women are not even getting a chance to delay childbearing or space the births of their children in order to advance themselves in other ways. And the population continues to rise, expecting to double by 2050. Besides India, Pakistan is the country with the most unmet need in the world. Planned, healthy families have more food, clothing, and money for education; and women have more leverage, freedom, and potential within and outside her family. We simply thought we could make a difference.

Partenariats : Parlez-nous de vos partenariats.

DKT International receives the generous support from the following organizations:

Toward Better Community Hygiene In South West Region in Nigeria

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. This will be the introductory text about this pitch that viewers will see.

Transience has remained very high in sub-Saharan Africa despite enormous investments in health system reforms and several vertical programmes, of the almost 9 million deaths of children and Adult in low- and middle-income countries each year.

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea, measles and HIV, often in combination. Malnutrition contributes to over 60% of these deaths. The Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) is a strategy developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and other technical partners that seeks to address these problems.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

improved health systems support, and improved family and community practices, also known as Community- IMCI (C-IMCI). Since families have the major responsibilityof caring for their children, success in reducing childhood mortality and in promoting optimal growth and development
of children requires a partnership between health workers and families with support from their communities to ensure improved health practices for child care at home, timely recognition and prompt care seeking when the child is sick, and compliance with treatment.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Though, Nigeria commenced implementation of the IMCI strategy in 1997, initially in six local government areas (LGAs) in one each of the six geopolitical zones. About nine (9) Community resource persons (CORPs) were trained then, so as to provide caregivers with information on key practices and ensure that they adopted these practices .However, this study describes differences in key disease prevention practices of households and communities between a C-IMCIcompliant LGA (Atakumosa East) and an LGA in which C-IMCI had not been implemented (Ife North), both in Osun State, southwestern Nigeria. This information will help in assessing the achievement of the objectives of the community IMCI strategy...e.tc

This information will help in assessing the achievement of the objectives of the community IMCI strategy,also be useful in advocating for expansion to non-CIMCI-compliant areas in the country as a whole

Audience: Who have you identified as your customers/recipients and why? How will you get your solution to them or engage them in your initiative?

Some Local Government Area in Ijesaland in Osun State, an inland state in the south-western zone of Nigeria, so as to eradicate poor hygiene, lack of safe drinking water and poor sanitation are the cause of millions of preventable deaths among the rural area that has been enigmatic in some of our rural areas.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

The present impact of this task is unusual, in the sense that the research reveal some point which is inevitable, however the future and continuity of this work is going to be monitored through the team work and the support of the community where the job is going to take off.Evidence of immunization was obtained from the immunization card or by history. Vitamin A coverage rate was sought by history and also by checking the immunization health card. Information was obtained on what caregivers had done during their child’s last illness all categorical variables and means and standard deviations were determined for continuous variables. Anthropometric measurements were converted, using EpiNut to standard z-scores

However, the point that we are working on is based on the immediate need of our communties such hand washing practices, Malaria prevention, Cholera prevention, HIV/AIDS Prevention etc.

Scaling the Solution: How do you intend to scale your activities over the next two years (e.g., reach new markets, diversify solutions, etc.)? What will make this possible?

categorically, we are working with no one presently to address this issue, and we are looking up if we can find one who is dependable to pilot this idea.Although,

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. This will be the introductory text about this pitch that viewers will see.

We are a social welfare organization run by doctors and medical students, overseen by medical professionals. We are here to instigate a sense of social responsibility in the doctors of tomorrow and provide a strategic approach to numerous problems plaguing our society.

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

We are adressing the problems of:
Deficet of donor blood in major cities.
Providing facilities to screen blood and assure it's safety.
Setting up medical camps and a free pharmacy.
Advising and distributing cheap medicines to the masses in our free medical camps to work against End Stage Kidney Disease that kills millions in Pakistan every year.
Organize fund rasing events to send aid to earth quake and terrorsim victims and families.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

We are branching our organization to other universities and cities and creating a network of Blood Banks! This will tackle the problems of deficet of donor blood and expensive yet unsafe screening of donor blood.
Then we are organizing social responsibility campaigns that target the masses and educate them in the need for donating blood and working for such causes.
Then we are setting up medical camps where we prescreen people for markers for kidney disease and advise medicines at an early stage so they do not suffer from End Stage Kidney Disease ten years from now.
We are also in the midst of setting up a free pharmacy for people in need and we are sending aid packages to families with low socio-economic profiles.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Well the fact of the matter is that I grew up in the capital of Pakistan and had lived in a rather sheltered enviorment, but when I came to Karachi (recognized as one of the most dangerous cities in the world) to pursue my stuidies to become a doctor. It opened my eyes to a variety of problems that I had not witnessed before, my thought process drastically changed from being "why do I not have more" to "why do I have so much and others so less." I recognized that I had a responsibility to work for the betterment of others. Also being part of a Medical college I saw a coherent desire coming from every corner of doing good for others but they had no route to channel thier desires. So I created this organization to help channel that energy.

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

We are regularly organizing blood drives and provide free screening to the masses. So far we have collected over 250 pints of blood and donated over 50 pints of blood to the Thalessemia center. This year we have also provided screening of Hepatitis B and C, AIDS (HIV), Syphillis, Thalessemia trait and Malaria to over 500 individuals completely free!
We have also raised funds of around 7000 U.S. dollars and provided aid packages of household items to families affected in a recent earth quake.
We are prescribing and distributing medicines in free medical camps in the slums of the city to counter End Stage Kidney Disease in Pakistan which would help these families with extreme burdens, years from now.

Audience: Who have you identified as your customers/recipients and why? How will you get your solution to them or engage them in your initiative?

Our targeted recipients are families with low socio-economic profiles who do not have the access to basic medical facilities or blood bank facilities in the time of surgeries, dengue viruses or thamessemia patients. We are targeting our organization's facilities to these people by targeting slums and similar areas and we are engaging them in this initiatives by setting up regular medical camps, blood drives and educational seminars which educate them to these problems and the available solutions.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

Our impact is that we have:
Collected over 250 pints of donor blood.
Screened over 500 individuals for Hepatitis B and C, AIDS (HIV), syphillis, malaria and Thalessemia Trait absolutely free.
We have donated over 50 pints of blood to Thalessemia centers.
We have raisied funds of over 7000 U.S. Dollars and sent aid packages to earth quake and terrorism victims.

Our impact in the future is expected to rise exponentially as with added resources and work force we forsee branching our efforts to other cities and increasing the frequency of medical camps, blood drives and fund rasing events.

Our yearly goals for 2014 are almost twice as what we have achieved in the last two years!

Growth, Finance & Leadership

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Numerous organizations are adressing this problem but we stand out in our efforts as our organization is made up of medical professionals and students who are working on new strategic approaches to both counter these problems and involve different institutions to work towards these problems.

We are different specifically in the mindset and the facultative feature that the doctors of tomorrow are being recruited into out efforts and we are creating a sense of social responsibility that helps the medical community gather its resources and adress the problems in a unique manner.

Scaling the Solution: How do you intend to scale your activities over the next two years (e.g., reach new markets, diversify solutions, etc.)? What will make this possible?

We are scaling up our activities by branching out to different universities and cities and creating a network of our organization and adjoining blood banks. We are reaching out to communities that was not though possible two years ago, and we have partnered up with other blood banks working for similar causes to aid our efforts.

The prize money and publicity would help us dramatically increase our impact numbers as with the added funds we can diversify our recruitment efforts and create the much needed traction to get recognized as a necessary force in our community. We can exponentially increase our targeted recipeints and further branch our organization and add much needed features like that off a free clinic and free diagnostic center

Financial Sustainability: What is your business model to ensure financial sustainability?

Well right now we are a non profit organization with most of the work force working pro-bono. We orgnaize fund raising events and have a list of donors that support our cause.

With the traction created with recieving the changemakers fund we hope to exponentially increase our efforts and donor list by being recognized as a worthy organization and using the funds given by this application to increase our impact numbers.

Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.

I have founded a flagship company that targets students and fresh graduates and provides a strategic approach for innovative growth in the IT industry. We had a sustainable business model and provided employment and growth opportunities to working individuals in need. I have also worked in numerous organizations and headed up different initiatives, for more details please refer to my CV: http://www.linkedin.com/in/umaranwarjahangir

Drop in center for HIV+ children offers a support group, waiting home, and second stop for HIV+ children and their family. We seek to complement the existing care by providing opportunity for the community to learn together to improve the quality of their children and family life.

Problème

There are at least 300 HIV+ children (age 0-19) recorded in West Java alone. While some have accessed Anti Retroviral Treatment, many have to cope with other opportunistic infections and multi-drug combination for treatment. Vulnerability to side effects and lack of knowledge among home caregivers caused these children to suffer health problem.

Many of these children have to bear witness of their parents’ drug addiction, rejection from family members and society, and the following economic problems. Such emotional trauma in golden age period will affect children’s socio-psychological development.

Solution

Drop in center for HIV+ children is projected to complement the existing clinic facility as well as the comprehensive program we offer our community of IDU and HIV+. In collaboration with Frontiers for Health, organization working in children development, we design an intervention to address children's health, nutrition, and psychosocial need.

We saw that current HIV+ related services are still mostly focused on adults, almost none available specifically for children. We also saw how due to limited resource, existing facility is heavily emphasized on curative medical treatment. Drop in center will emphasize measures on children's development monitoring, as well as counseling and capacity building for parents/ caregiver to maintain continuity of care.

Exemple

Drop in center is projected to be a waiting home or second stop for those visiting current existing clinic for regular ARV and medical treatment. The main programs offered are:
1. Health counseling. From our observation, some caregivers are hesitant, or consultation time is not enough to ask the doctor about their children’s condition. In drop in center, we’re using peer to peer approach to let people feel comfortable asking everything related to children’s health and development. The result will be documented and sent as an input for the existing clinic.

2. Children development monitoring. Drop in center psychologist will conduct regular monitoring of children development based on the age-specific developmental milestone. As follow up, we consult parents/ caregiver on stimulation methods to optimize growth and development. More serious cases will be referred to child development clinic.

3. Parenting sessions. To build a sense of community, parenting sessions is designed as a sharing forum for parents/ caregiver. Guest speakers from medical or psychology background are invited regularly to enhance the know-how, thus the quality of care.

Impact social

We expect drop in center to increase the survival chance and life quality of HIV+ children. Starting from the few hundreds of already recorded children in West Java, we hope this service model can be replicated in other areas where HIV is considered a serious epidemic.

Marché

By far, no organization in Indonesia has provided service like this for HIV+ children and their family. Some organizations are serving HIV+ children through hospice, together with late stage cancer patients. Similar model of service are also available in waiting home developed for cancer patients, which provide lodging, support group, and information dissemination for children patients who otherwise will have to go back and forth from their hometown to the city hospital (as treatment is only available in big city).

Plan de viabilité

For this initiative, currently we’re looking for funding from philanthropy (e.g. Rotary Club), Corporate CSR (e.g. Johnson & Johnson), and development agency to start. Apart from that we also have small amount from community saving. Some possibilities for the future are service fee (with cross subsidy system), franchising, or service contract

Histoire de votre fondation

Rumah Cemara started as an organization working to help drug addicts of HIV+ people. After some years working with this community, Rumah Cemara found out that due to lack of awareness and difficult access to treatment (such as Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission program), HIV has spread to a new generation through the babies. This posed a new challenge for us, as we saw how these babies are actually victimized by their parents, families, and the society due to the heavy stigma of HIV. Thus we were called to get involved to serve this new addition to our community as part of the comprehensive program we already provided for some of their parents.
