Improving health systems is a healthier path

New health discoveries are not immediately accessible or affordable to individuals, especially in low and middle income countries.

When we think about health-related innovations, we often draw pictures of scientists in the laboratory to discover the basics - inventing modern devices using a computational computer system, or creating new drugs or new treatments.

While people and their hopes are related to these types of understandings, the reality is that new health discoveries are not immediately accessible to individuals, especially in low and middle income countries. The poor population is often the last to reach them.

The ability to improve the health of a person depends on more than a new discovery or tool or medication to detect or treat the disease. Instead, it is the ability of the health system to absorb and disseminate new technologies through existing, less disturbing and highly effective services.

Medical care advances will be less meaningful and have less impact on the burden of disease, unless it has a strong health system through projects that can be widely used in the community.

Adapting the health needs of disadvantaged groups in society requires a healthy health system. Even though the innovative and simple innovations that can be achieved by the new mHealth technology, such as the recently used MomConnect app, which provides women with information on their pregnancy, will work well if their health systems work well.

All successful health innovations depend on the ability of the health system to provide appropriate policy guidelines, to develop appropriate health plans, to encourage health-care workers, and to provide training that is relevant to them and to provide health and responsive to individuals and communities.

The responsive health system is also involved with patients and communities, allowing them to be in a position to have the power to calculate what they do and how they do it. It is in this context, that policy research and health systems - how to work, how to strengthen empowerment - will be relevant.

Work together

The health system consists of interconnected activities, which are time-consuming and reflects the local situation. They are driven by people with different experiences that are aimed at improving the health of all people and ensuring social equality. The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified six key building systems in all health systems.

These include management, information, finance, service, human resources, medicine and technology. WHO also indicates that it is necessary to see that the health system "like any other systems, is a set of components integration which must act together to be effective. Changes in the region have an impact elsewhere. Improvement in the region can not be achieved without the contributions of others. The relationship between buildings is essential for achieving better health than the That. "

But the health system is most effective by people and is bound by their relationship. In all aspects of life, human relationships are challenging and can not be predictable and require constant care. An important factor in the lack of health of the health system is the relationship between people and activities that are weak, making people who do the work alone do not know. The prescribing of the drug reported in our health system is an example of the health system.

Far from working as a similar structure of the machine, the health system is a dynamic, dynamic public system for creativity and creativity. These qualities are required to meet the different health needs and challenges facing the system at all levels of individuals and populations.

Understanding, identifying and linking people and activities within the system is not a simple task, but is supported through the Health Policy and Research System (HPSR).

The combination of economic, social, scientific, political, public health and epidemics, this model seeks to find relationships and confusion between people in the health system. It informs about health policies. It promotes the transformation of the real health system.

South African health system

There is a consensus that South Africa is not able to achieve the Millennium Development Goals target this year as we are still trying to address these issues in the context of the weak and overburdened and inequitable health systems of the past.

Can South Africa address past disparities and extend health care to all the population despite ongoing challenges? How can creativity in this system, and innovations in care, management, human relations, accountability and more, spread across the country?

The 2015 Development Conference will focus on global health care and attention will be focused on reducing the differences in access to health care based on social or economic circumstances. National Health Insurance Action Plan (NHI), Learning about lessons and ideas from countries including Thailand, Brazil and countries such as England, has a long history of long-term health reform, all of its citizens.

The implementation of the strategy will have significant human, financial, administrative and substantial implications, and requires strong relationships and links between people and activities.

Policy research and health systems play an important role in making decisions for planning and planning for NHI's implementation. The body of research evidence produced inside and outside South Africa is great and provides valuable information in many important areas and not just about funding.

Local researchers not only documented common challenges in implementing health policies, but also highlighted opportunities for improving health systems, such as how to integrate community service providers, planning and outreach, sharing of regulatory frameworks for municipal authorities, and empowering people and people to make informed decisions. Yes. These are just a handful of examples of HPSR knowledge produced in South Africa.

Third Symposium Symposium

This month, September 2014, South Africa will host the world's third-largest Global Health Research Conference to share and use modern research to strengthen the health system.

Under the theme of science and practice of a centralized health system, Symposium is an opportunity to work on the vision of a global health system that "contributes to better health, equity and well-being". The experience in South Africa will be a good representation of the project.

An example of the meeting will discuss compliance with health standards, a new organization that will monitor the quality of treatment in South Africa.

So, how can we ensure the cycle of innovation needed to support a strong health system in the future?

This is the role of health policy and systematic research, as it provides evidence that is needed to support decision-making in the health system. Although South Africa is internationally renowned for its economic health and health policies and productive researching system,

Despite investing in the field by research by National Science Research Institute, Research Institute and Capacity Development,

If we are able to grow in the future of HPSR and relate to our health systems, it is essential that we build a strong relationship between researchers, health managers, civil society, policymakers.
