Con la presente siamo ad inoltrare a tutti gli iscritti l’Email pervenuta all’attenzione del Presidente dell’Ordine dei Medici Chirurghi e degli Odontoiatri di Perugia da parte del Dott. Antonio LOIACONO per una collaborazione per il rifornimento farmaceutico in ETIOPA.

 

Pregiatissimo Presidente,

avrei bisogno ancora una volta della sua collaborazione per uno dei progetti sanitari di GSI Italia (www.gsiitalia.org), di cui sono presidente e legale rappresentante.

Ricorderà, forse, che tra gli impegni da me assunti in Etiopia c’è il rifornimento farmaceutico di quattro piccole cliniche nel sud del Paese. Il rifornimento di farmaci che generalmente attuiamo, a mezzo container, è per grandi quantitativi e per singole specialità. Nel 2015 abbiamo inviato nel sud del mondo oltre 100 metri cubi di farmaci. Per l’Etiopia avremmo bisogno di una più ricca varietà di specialità e di piccoli quantitativi. Il lavoro che, con l’aiuto dell’Ordine abbiamo fatto nel 2015, è stato efficace e di ottima resa.

Ai primi del mese di aprile mi rientra il medico responsabile delle strutture (dr Stefano Cenerini dell’Ordine di Bologna) dalla fine del 2015 direttore sanitario delle strutture etiopi supportate da GSI Italia.

In previsione dell’incontro vorrei essere in grado di assicurare anche per il 2016 il contributo dei medici perugini con le donazioni dei campioni delle specialità, così come eventualmente, di prodotti sanitari di consumo e di piccola attrezzatura sanitaria efficiente, che si è disponibili a cedere ai Centri da noi assistiti in Etiopia e in altri Paesi del sud.

Chiedo ai colleghi di selezionare confezioni che abbiano scadenze non inferiori ai 5 mesi. Basta telefonare al numero 0743 49987, orario ufficio a.m. o segnalare la disponibilità all’indirizzoantonioloiacono@gsiitalia.org per concertare il ritiro dei materiali. Ove interessati al rilascio di una certificazione della donazione, GSI Italia, Ong con idoneità Mae, Ministero Affari Esteri, rilascerà una certificazione idonea anche ai fini fiscali. In questo caso si richiede ai colleghi la compilazione di una notula dei farmaci e dell’attrezzatura consegnata.

Caro presidente, la ringrazio vivamente ancora per la collaborazione.

Cordiali saluti,

Antonio Loiacono, medico, Spoleto.

Miscommunication in the healthcare sector can be life-threatening. The rising number of migrant patients and foreign-trained staff means that communication errors between a healthcare practitioner and patient when one or both are speaking a second language are increasingly likely. However, there is limited research that addresses this issue systematically. This protocol outlines a hospital-based study examining interactions between healthcare practitioners and their patients who either share or do not share a first language. Of particular interest are the nature and efficacy of communication in language-discordant conversations, and the degree to which risk is communicated. Our aim is to understand language barriers and miscommunication that may occur in healthcare settings between patients and healthcare practitioners, especially where at least one of the speakers is using a second (weaker) language.

Additional 2,808 foreign doctors will arrive in Brazil this week, President Rousseff announced. The doctors will join the other health professionals who began entering the country in July in order to take part in the government’s Programa Mais Médicos (“Mnatale2013 059ore Doctors Program”).

Under an agreement that will earn cash-strapped Cuba some $225 million a year, Cuban doctors have been deployed to health centers in the slums of Brazilian cities and villages across the drought-stricken Northeast that had no resident doctors. Bahia state is reopening rural health centers that were unstaffed.

eurodisney 037Rome, June 27 (Reuters) – Eight out of ten foreign prisoners do not know, basically, their rights to health in prison. But the Italians have some difficulty, considering that the entire prison population has information on the reform of prison health only in 60% of cases. While less than a third of the operators of the prison knows the content of the news on the subject of health care in prison. Are some findings, presented this morning in Rome, the project ‘Health without barriers’, made by the National Institute for Health and Migration Poverty and the Ministry of Health on a proposal from the Ministry of Interior. Own initiative created to promote awareness among foreign prisoners of the right to protection of health and the knowledge of the functioning of health services in prison.

The project – started May 30, 2012 and closing June 29 – involved 12 Italian prisons in North, Central and South and also involved health professionals and social health, the prison officers and the leadership with different types of intervention: from information seminars for courses distance learning to a search. “The project – told Adnkronos Salute Gianfranco Costanzo NIHMP, project coordinator – has allowed us to check the status of implementation of health care reform the prisons and give information to the prisoners, training of health workers and involve the directors of prisons and the commanders of the prison. E ‘was also possible to carry out a research on the perception of the reform on the part of the various components of prison life. ”

The results showed “a low perception of their rights on the part of foreign prisoners,” says Costanzo. “I emerged the need to better coordinate the health care world that is in charge of the health of prisoners (and which today is in ASL, in the implementation of the reform which transferred responsibility from the Dap NHS) with the needs that are specific to the system detention, and therefore the security of society and people. serves to match together with the safety requirement of the protection of health, a goal to which we are not yet arrived. “

Non-communicable diseases, including cancer, are rapidly becoming the leading health-care problem in middle-income and low-income countries. In Latin America and the Caribbean, current cancer control plans vary widely between countries in this region, are largely reactionary to treating advanced cancers, and strongly favour a wealthy and educated minority. In this Commission and linked Comments, expert opinion from a multidisciplinary team of health-care professionals, policy makers, and others address the challenges to providing cancer care in this region and report on the critical steps that are required to reduce the rapidly rising human and economic burden of cancer in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Lancet, Volume 380, Issue 9842, Page 622, 18 August 2012

as reported by A I Fumagalli

Earlier this year, Mexico reached a truly immense landmark in its pioneering journey of health reform: achieving universal health coverage (UHC) for its 100 million citizens. This remarkable feat has been realised in less than a decade, and is detailed in a Lancet Health Policy paper published online on Aug 16—an update on The Lancet’s 2006 Series on Mexico’s early experiences of health reform.
Central to Mexico’s progress is an ideological shift: health insurance is no longer seen as an employment benefit, but a right of citizenship. The outcome? 52 million previously uninsured Mexicans now have state-protected health cover via the public insurance system and instrument of Mexico’s health reform, Seguro Popular.
It would be naive to assume that achieving UHC is the final destination in Mexico’s journey of health reform. Despite many crucial new changes in the way Mexico organises its health services—such as the investment in disease prevention through public health programmes (the ban on tobacco use in public places being a good example), and encouraging signs of access to the latest drugs in clinical medicine (such as the availability of trastuzumab for breast cancer treatment)—large challenges lie ahead. The threat of a rise in the burden of non-communicable diseases looms large.
There are also important lessons for other low-income and middle-income countries who share Mexico’s quest for UHC, notably the positioning of health reform within a legal framework to secure protection from future political interference. And, crucially, Mexico has showed how UHC, as well as being ethically the right thing to do, is the smart thing to do. Health reform, done properly, boosts economic development.
UHC in other regions will be explored further in a themed issue of The Lancet on Sept 8. And let us not forget Mexico’s northern neighbour, where President Barack Obama is seeking to drive through the most radical reforms in the history of US health care. But for now, let us celebrate success, and hope for a sustained Mexican wave of UHC worldwide.
