EQUILIBRES ET POPULATIONS. 2000 Aug-Sep; (60):3.The president of the study group on demography and global population called for an intensification of the fight against maternal mortality worldwide. In general terms, the minister confirmed that reducing and preventing maternal mortality are Foreign Affairs Ministry priorities. He also noted the theme of projects to prevent risk factors, including the development of reproductive health with UNPFA, women’s promotion, child protection to prevent the genital mutilation of girls, girls’ education, microcredit, cooperation, the development of quality care, personnel training, economic access to quality care, measures against communicable diseases, safe blood transfusion, nutrition, and the implementation of systems to effectively manage supplies of essential medicines, equipment, and supplies. On all of these subjects, the minister declared himself open to the co-financing of decentralized projects in the country’s priority zones. A midwife training project is being implemented in Haiti. A government minister noted that lessons learned from the first multibilateral accord between France and UNFPA will, given its success, open the door to future collaboration and interventions. Comoros and Haiti would be interested. Otherwise, converting the debt of very poor countries into projects would present the opportunity to increase available funding for population policies.
Ukraine infectious disease program planning visit, a joint mission by USAID, BASICS, PATH, and CDC, April 14-26, 1997, Kiev, Ukraine.
Arlington, Virginia, Partnership for Child Health Care, Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival [BASICS], 1997. , 7,  p. (Report; USAID Contract No. HRN-C-00-93-00031-00)This trip report concerns the joint visit during April 14-26, 1997, of consultants from USAID, BASICS, PATH, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to the Ukraine. The trip aimed to begin development of an assistance program for strengthening local health management information systems (HMIS) and to gain Mission support for a multi-year health information system reform program beyond 1997. The Mission suggested a program for strengthening the Ukraine's Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Oblast Sanitary and Epidemiologic Surveillance (SES) capacity to control infectious diseases. The MOH is in the process of health program and personnel reforms. SES operates at the oblast and rayon levels, which report infectious diseases to the national level. The state SES and the Center for Medical Services compile national health statistics. The new HMIS is based on BASICS HMIS reform activities in other countries of the former Soviet Union and the USAID/PATH experience with Ukraine diphtheria control data systems. The trip team met with the USAID Regional Mission, senior officials at the MOH and State SES, several national institutes involved with HMIS, a UNICEF representative, and an HMIS donor. The trip team visited one rayon in Kievskaya Oblast, and several consultants visited Zhitomyr Oblast SES. The trip team met with USAID in Kiev. Consultants met with MOH and vaccine donors, at which time it was reported that there were deficits in EPI and other vaccines for 1997. The Ukraine is facing a shortage of vaccines because the Canadian donor will no longer donate vaccines. Logistics on vaccines is difficult to obtain because supplies come directly from Russia and are not routinely reported in stock balances at the national level. The UNICEF consultant reported faulty cold storage facilities. The HMIS information flow is tedious, error-prone, and useless for planning or decision making.
