  • Kenya Postings - IU School of Medicine
    two weeks were spent covering a catchment area that comprises about 1500 households Early t his week we met to assess results and to work out any kinks in anticipation of tackling the next area Of the 1500 households 15 refused entry 15 Some other remarkable events occurred people were stopping counselors along the road asking to be tested many households had relatives or friends who had come from other areas so they could be tested people who were tested proudly displayed their cards and asked others to show theirs if someone could not show a card they were assumed positive and labeled spreaders Many of these then came back to be tested All this shows that stigma has reversed itself in a few short years There are still challenges of course In homes with negative parents and teenage children the children would often express willingness to be tested but not in front of their parents Without the ability to link them to a household owing to anonymity follow up will be difficult Overall though this has been a wildly successful program let s hope it continues as it rolls across the rest of the 2 million person catchment area But no matter what the case it is clear that the culture of HIV is changing dramatically The implications in terms of getting on top of this scourge are obvious We visited FPI this week As a quick reminder once we had drugs to treat people we uncovered starvation so a bridging food program was started in partnership with the World Food Programme but a persisting problem was that people had no way to support themselves Thus the Family Preservation Initiative FPI was birthed This includes a variety of microfinance programs from learning arts and crafts to setting up a small business to changing farming methods to grow more money crops The traditional crop here is corn Fields are planted in corn year after year requiring more and more fertilizer to obtain a reasonable yield They need to read Omnivores Dilemma If one calculates all the expenses that go into raising this corn negligible if any profit can be made so this strategy does not meet the need to generate income for sending kids to school etc We went to Samuel s shamba house and farm who through FPI has converted some of his land to soy beans and to passion fruit Within less than two years Samuel is financially independent his kids are in school and he is employing another man in the community to help him As you can imagine he is an eloquent spokesperson for alternative approaches to farming An interesting anecdote is that a neighbor of Samuel s went to the AMPATH clinic even though he had tested negative for HIV He asked the clinic to record him as positive so he could get in on this FPI farming program We also met a woman who is running a successful small restaurant and a man who has a fruit stand best in Eldoret Both these patients have the taste of success and are seeking financing to expand Needless to say there are no malnourished patients and no orphans to worry about in these families and there is no dependence on hand outs My comments have focused on clinical care This platform is also blossoming in terms of research We have one of the NIH funded international ACTG s AIDS Clinical Trials Group and there are a host of studies being done At the upcoming International AIDS meeting in Mexico City there will be 21 posters and 4 oral presentations from work here My personal assessment is that we are still scratching the surface so expect even more recognition for research in the future Overall I have experienced a third week being amazed at people s dedication and the impact they are having All of us should be proud of our colleagues Therein it bears emphasis that this is a true collaboration with our Kenyan partners We are few and they are many Our goal is to also succeed in helping them build capacity so that at the end of the day they have a more robust health system that is run by them and we are consultants watching from the side lines We are not there yet but it is within sight Best wishes from Kenya Craig Entry 2 Posted Monday June 30 2008 Last week in Kenya was as illuminating refreshing exhausting and provoking of thought as the prior One of the approximately 20 outreach clinics run by AMPATH is in a town called Kitale This is a new clinic so facilities have not been built to accommodate the rush of patients there who need treatment for HIV Imagine an 8 by 10 foot room In that room place two small desks that are just wide enough for two chairs touching one another thus four chairs on one side and four on the other Add an examining table and a make shift curtain that can be placed along its side From clinic opening till the last patient is seen four days a week this room is filled thus four patients at a time one after another facing four medical officers MD generalists or clinical officers equivalent of a physician assistant As most of the patients seem to be women a majority are also accompanied by one or two children It is reminiscent of those days of contests to see how many people you could pack into a VW Beetle The patients are unfailingly polite patient and grateful for receiving care no matter how confined the setting For the few who could speak English each and every one would look me in the eye and say how appreciative they were for helping their community not them as individuals but their community So these are people who are in the most dire straits imaginable and still they have hope appreciation and a sense beyond themselves The me

  • Healthcare reform op-ed - IU School of Medicine
    the right kind of health care reform starts by re aligning financial incentives for hospitals and physicians to reward the quality of care we provide as opposed to the quantity The current fee for service system pays providers based on the number of procedures performed and volume of services provided rather than on patient outcomes or quality metrics The result is health care that is more expensive and less effective or humane than it could or should be We support a payment system that compensates us on the basis of value rather than volume while taking into account the severity of the illnesses we treat Similarly real reform will organize care around the patient rather than providers Physicians and other health workers should be encouraged to care for patients and not simply provide care to them For example we should promote efforts by primary care physicians to manage the care of chronically ill patients ensuring that multiple specialists communicate with each other and coordinate their efforts to treat patients multiple problems Medicare and other payers today do not encourage a coordinated care approach across different providers Patients too often see multiple specialists without any care coordination putting them at risk of receiving multiple prescriptions or other treatments that are redundant or even harmful Real reform will expand access to care for the uninsured and under insured in a way that does not explode the federal deficit and exacerbate the inefficiencies and cost shifting of today s system Everyday we see the consequences of a system that does not provide regular access to health care services for millions of people Therefore we strongly support efforts to provide insurance coverage to as many Americans as possible who currently lack it Real reform will also address the serious shortage of physicians nurses and
