Cape Town is SA’s healthiest city

According to the Discovery Vitality ObeCity Index the least healthy Vitality members, when compared on weight status and associated factors, live in Bloemfontein while the healthiest Vitality members live in Cape Town.

Obesity is growing faster globally than any other cause of disease: it is the number one risk factor for non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

With more than 60% of South African women overweight/obese (double the global average), South Africa is one of the world’s most overweight nations.

“The South African obesity epidemic is the result of several factors relating to changes in diet, physical activity levels, and the work, home, and community environments. The results of the ObeCity Index are alarming and another stark reminder that we are trending in the wrong direction as a nation. We hope that research of this nature will move us from awareness to action,” says Dr Craig Nossel, Head of Vitality Wellness at Discovery.

Weight status – A combined score using Body Mass Index (BMI) with waist circumference.

1.Cape Town

2.Johannesburg

3.Durban

4.Pretoria

5.Bloemfontein

6.Port Elizabeth

Wanted: 11 million professionals to save Africa from 'disaster'

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Africa needs 11 million more doctors, nurses and teachers by 2030 to prevent a “social and economic disaster” that could propel millions to migrate, the United Nations said on Thursday.

It said the 11 million were needed to help the continent cope with a booming population, with the number of children set to increase by 170 million to 750 million in the next 13 years.

We are at the most critical juncture for Africa’s children,” Leila Pakkala of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said in a statement.

Get it right, and we could ... lift hundreds of millions out of extreme poverty, and contribute to enhanced prosperity, stability, and peace,” said Pakkala, who heads UNICEF operations in eastern and southern Africa.

The U.N.’s children agency attributed the boom in births to high fertility rates, a rising number of women of reproductive age and lower child mortality.

By the end of the century, one in two children worldwide will live in Africa, it said in a study.

Egypt is about to launch Universal Health Coverage - LINK
Egypt is about to offer all of its citizens health insurance for the first time in the North African country’s history. Prime Minister Sherif Ismail approved on Wednesday a new comprehensive health insurance bill after meeting with the Minister of Health, Ahmed Emad, to review final details of the law.

The new health care program will cost L.E. 140 billion Egyptian pounds ($8 billion) and will be implemented gradually across the country between 2018 and 2032, starting with the cities of Port Said and Suez, and ending with expansion to Cairo and Giza.

Subscription to the universal policy will be mandatory and will cost, depending on income, between 1,300 pounds ($74) and 4,000 ($227) pounds annually. The government has committed to provide the policy free of charge to those citizens who cannot afford it— an estimated 23.7 million Egyptians (approximately 25% of the population).

Africa’s health crisis needs a focus on systems, not people

Ageing autocrats like Mugabe ill equipped to tackle rise in non-communicable diseases




Tedros Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, has rescinded the poorly thought-out appointment of Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe as a UN goodwill ambassador to address non-communicable diseases.

The appointment unleashed a storm of criticism, as the average life expectancy in Zimbabwe is just 60 years. Under nonagenarian Mr Mugabe, the country experienced the worst cholera epidemic in modern history and has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world.

African countries do not need ageing autocrats and goodwill ambassadors to expand access to healthcare in the region. Instead the focus needs to be on building robust systems resilient to the next generation of healthcare challenges.

Accordingly, the WHO should finance a regional strategy better suited to tackle non-communicable diseases (NCDs), better integrate its work with traditional health systems and embrace technology to improve the region’s healthcare infrastructure.

‘Imagine the potential of one billion children;’ UNICEF urges investment as Africa’s youth population surges



26 October 2017 – If Africa is to keep pace with an unprecedented demographic transition – Africa’s under-18 population will reach 750 million by 2030 – scaled-up investment in health, education and women’s protection and empowerment will be needed or the continent will face a ‘bleak’ future, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reported Thursday.

Investing in health, protection, and education must become an absolute priority for Africa between now and 2030,” said Leila Pakkala, UN Children Fund (UNICEF) Regional Director for Eastern and Southern Africa.

According to UNICEF’s report Generation 2030 Africa 2.0, some 11 million education and health personnel will be needed to keep pace with the projected unprecedented population growth of children in Africa – an increase of 170 million children between now and 2030.

We are at the most critical juncture for Africa’s children,” Ms. Pakkala underscored. “Get it right, and we set the foundation for a demographic dividend, which could lift hundreds of millions out of extreme poverty, and contribute to enhanced prosperity, stability, and peace.

Overlooked infection kills 150,000 babies a year, mostly in Africa: study

DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A bacterial infection passed from mothers to babies kills around 150,000 unborn children and infants a year but has been widely overlooked in developing countries, researchers said on Monday as they urged faster progress on developing a vaccine.

Nearly one in five pregnant women worldwide is infected with Group B Streptococcus (GBS), which causes stillbirths, deaths and permanent problems such as vision and hearing loss in babies, researchers found in the first global study of the disease.

Africa is disproportionately affected, with 65 percent of the world’s stillbirths and infant deaths from GBS, though it is home to only about 13 percent of the world’s population, according to the study led by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Most of these deaths could be prevented by a new vaccine that is still in clinical development, the study found.

The burden of Group B strep has been underappreciated, particularly in low and middle-income countries,” co-author Shabir Madhi of Wits University in South Africa told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Osinbajo decries large exodus of Nigerian doctors

The Nigerian Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday decried the way Nigerian doctors were leaving the nation in droves saying the government now has an opportunity to bring back the doctors.

Mr. Osinbajo, who spoke at the 60th-anniversary celebration of the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan, said that the dismal levels of job satisfaction caused by poor healthcare system in Nigeria were responsible for the “alarming” brain drain in the country’s health sector.

The vice president’s remarks comes a few days after the Chairman, Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, Lagos State branch, Olumuyiwa Odusote, lamented the exodus of doctors from Nigeria.

The Punch newspaper quoted Mr. Odusote as saying, “The health crisis in Nigeria is unprecedented as the mass exodus hits an alarming proportion.
“Already, it takes a new patient two to three hours to see a doctor. Over 100 doctors have resigned from the University College Hospital, Ibadan, this year; about 800 doctors resigned from Lagos State hospitals in the last two years, and over 50 in November alone.

Kebbi State has been unable to employ a single doctor in two years despite multiple adverts for employment; over 200 doctors and nurses have resigned from Ladoke Akintola Teaching Hospital this year.

The minimal invasive surgery, first introduced in the country at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Moshi, is now widely used at the super specialised referral hospital, with patients calling, getting operated and discharged on the same day.

The Head of General Surgery at KCMC, Dr Kondo Chilonga, who is also the pioneer of the key hole surgery in the country after getting expertise under the auspices of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust of the United Kingdom, told the ‘Daily News’ here yesterday that the cost-effective procedure offers huge relief to patients and the hospital.

Dr Chilonga said gone are the days when patients and families had to spend long time in recovery and support at the hospital, saying the burden has been purged, benefiting the nation as well because patients undergoing the surgery can return to economic activities earlier.

Laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen and pelvis without making large incisions in the skin.

Large incisions can be avoided during laparoscopy because the surgeon uses an instrument, laparoscope, a small tube with a light source and camera that relays ima
ges of the abdomen and pelvis inside to a television monitor.

Having introduced the procedure, Northumbria medical experts stayed at KCMC hospital for a while before they returned to UK, but kept monitoring the procedures through a telemetry link and telemedicine technology that started in 2003 between Northumbria and KCMC.

Dr Chilonga said by 2009/2010 KCMC were doing the surgery on their own, unless there were complications that necessitated communicating with Northumbria via audio video, with internet engineers facilitating the communications.

As of now, thousands of procedures have been performed at the hospital, attracting patients from across Tanzania and neighbouring countries. Before patients had to be admitted before surgeries and stay for some days at the hospital but now dates are set and patients call, get operated and leave on the same day.

World Bank paints a positive picture of health service in South Africa

South Africans are unlikely to face crippling healthcare bills and have fairly good access to services, suggesting the country is well on the path to providing universal health coverage, according to a report by the World Bank and the World Health Organisation.

The Tracking Universal Health Coverage report defines universal coverage as meaning that all people can obtain the health services they need without suffering financial hardship. Achieving universal health coverage by 2030 is one of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The report’s findings on SA challenge the Department of Health’s rhetoric on National Health Insurance, an ambitious set of health reforms that it says are intended to provide universal health coverage. The findings show the country is to some extent there already.

The report found SA’s service coverage index, which gauges the provision of essential health services, was 67, putting it in the top half of the 183 countries surveyed. About 80 countries rank higher than SA.

The incidence of catastrophic health expenditure, defined as the percentage of the population spending more than 10% of their household budget on out-of-pocket health expenses, is just 1.41%. This puts South Africans’ risk of catastrophic health expenditure on a similar level to people living in the UK (1.64%) or Panama (1.4%).

They enjoy better financial protection than people living in the US or India. In those countries, the percentage of the population spending more than 10% of household income on health expenses is 4.77% and 17.3%, respectively.

They should have included at least a shelf for a delivery pack and linen in the ambulance just in case the lady gives birth en route to hospital.

The new Comprehensive Health Insurance plan is modeled after the British system, abandoning the old socialist mess that meant that those who couldn't afford private hospitals had to go free public ones where service was abysmal. Public hospitals will no longer be free, and will therefore be able to improve their service. All hospitals, public and private, included in the program now have to conform to regulations and are overseen by three new regulatory bodies, the Comprehensive Health Insurance Authority, the Healthcare Organisation and the Public Authority for Accreditation and Health Control. Everyone will be covered by the national health insurance, the Ministry of Social Solidarity will cover the insurance of the poorest segments of the population and the unemployed.

Improving the nation’s health - LINK



Quote:
Last month parliament passed a long awaited new health insurance law. The 67-article law seeks to make quality health care accessible to all by improving the services offered by public hospitals

The law’s provisions will be rolled out in three phases, ending in 2032. The first phase, beginning this year, will cover the governorates of Port Said, Suez, Ismailia, North Sinai, South Sinai and Alexandria. The second phase includes Fayoum, Beni Sweif, Assiut, Minya, Sohag, Qena, Luxor, Aswan, the New Valley and the Red Sea. The final phase will include the heavily populated governorates of Cairo, Giza, Qalioubeya, Beheira, Gharbeya, Menoufeya, Kafr Al-Sheikh, Sharqeya, Daqahleya as well as Damietta and Marsa Matrouh.

[...]

Oncologist Dina Abdel-Azim says the new system will provide immediate medical care for patients at the point of delivery.

“The new system is essentially a social solidarity scheme. The family is the main unit of medical coverage rather than the individual as was the case in previous systems. The quality of services provided to patients is very high, and includes unofficial workers such as street vendors and housemaids.”

The government will fully cover the subscriptions of those who cannot afford insurance payments.

[...]

“The new programme will end the high cost of medical services provided by the private sector,” announced Hegazi.

[...]

Pharmacist Tarek Mustafa believes the new law will allow all citizens to access quality medical care.

“The new law allows the patient to choose between private and public facilities,” he says, adding that the regulatory system will guarantee the quality of services offered to patients.

Merck Foundation, Malaysia ink deal to enhance healthcare in Africa
16 January 2018 | News


Quote:
Through this agreement the organizations aim at providing fellowship training for post-graduate medical trainees from Africa and other developing countries

With a view to strengthen healthcare infrastructure and build healthcare capacity in Africa, Merck Foundation (MF), a non-profit company and subsidiary of Merck KGaA Germany, and the University of Malaya (UM),inked an Memorandum of Understanding today

Through this agreement the organizations aim at providing fellowship training for post-graduate medical trainees from Africa and other developing countries. The signing ceremony was witnessed by YB Datuk Dr. Mary Yap Kain Ching, Deputy Minister of Higher Education Malaysia.

For Merck Foundation, the collaboration exemplifies an effort to help improve the quality of healthcare in underserved communities around the world. The Merck Capacity Advancement Program has benefited over 30,000 medical graduates across Africa and Asia. In 2017 alone, MF initiated the following activities in partnership with academia, ministries of health and the offices of First Ladies in more than 35 countries

Professor Dr. Frank Stangenberg-Haverkamp, Chairman of Executive Board of E-Merck KG and Chairman of Board of Trustees of Merck Foundation said, “We are delighted to partner with the University of Malaya, to provide clinical training and fellowship programs to young healthcare practitioners from Africa and other developing countries.

“I strongly believe that building capacity is the right strategy to improve access to quality and equitable healthcare since the lack of professional skills is a key challenge in these nations. We have successfully conducted many educational and fellowship programs in both Africa and Asia since 2012 and we will continue our long-term commitment through our Merck Foundation.”

The MF-UM collaboration formalised today will facilitate academic support to post-graduate medical trainees in the fields of diabetes, oncology and infertility.

Dr. Rasha Kelej, Chief Executive Officer of Merck Foundation explained, “This partnership is essential for the sustainability of Merck Foundation programmes – especially ‘Merck Cancer Access Program’ and ‘Merck More Than A Mother’ – that serve as platforms to train oncologists and embryologists to improve access to fertility and cancer care in Africa and Asia. I personally believe through this partnership we will be able to make a significant impact on societies and scientific communities in both continents.”

YBhg. Dato’ Professor Dr. Adeeba Kamarulzaman, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya said, “We possess the requisite experience. Our medical faculty has a well-established post-graduate medical training programme that has already produced an international cohort of graduates from Indonesia, India, Mauritius, and the Maldives.”
