    A healthy partnership -- a case study of the MOH contract to KHANA for disbursement of World Bank funds for HIV / AIDS in Cambodia.

    Wilkinson D

    [Brighton, England], International HIV / AIDS Alliance, 2005 Mar. 12 p.

    In 1998, the Cambodian Ministry of Health was experiencing difficulties in disbursing World Bank funds earmarked for local NGOs/CBOs, and in 1999, contracted Khana to manage the disbursement process. Given the scarcity of documented successful government-NGO/CBO disbursement initiatives, the Alliance commissioned a case study of this mechanism of making World Bank funds more accessible to civil society organisations. This report of the case study outlines the background and context to adopting the disbursement mechanism, explains the selection of the disbursing agency and the process of contract negotiation, details the nature and quantity of the disbursement, and identifies the strengths, weaknesses and lessons learned from this model.

    Silveira House community based AIDS programme: a case study.

    Silveira House; UNICEF

    Harare, Zimbabwe, Silveira House, [1995]. 26 p.

    This document outlines the experience of the Silveira House and the UN International Children's Emergency Fund in designing and implementing a Community-Based AIDS Program in Zimbabwe. The Silveira House is a nongovernmental organization (NGO) being run by Jesuits. As such, it conducts activities, which combine a training program, an extension program and a research program in developing an AIDS program. One of their projects was the Community Based AIDS Program, which aimed to provide communities with relevant information on AIDS; recognize HIV/AIDS as a community problem; activate a sense of responsibility within the community for behavior change; develop participatory education materials for use in facilitating behavior change, and provide extension workers with information, education and communication skills on HIV/AIDS. The evaluation revealed that the programs were successful in attaining its objectives. Furthermore, the lessons learned include the following: 1) ability of the community educator in delivering the program; 2) need for extensive training in the use of participatory AIDS education methods; 3) organization of community groups; 4) assistance in various aspects of work planning; 5) practice of AIDS related issues discussion; 6) generation of materials for programs; and 7) inclusion of home based care training.

    Community availability of ARI drugs in Guatemala, Guatemala, Guatemala, July 23 to August 5, 1995.

    McCarthy D

    Arlington, Virginia, Partnership for Child Health Care, 1995. [4], 11, [45] p. (Trip Report; BASICS Technical Directive: 008-GU-01-015; USAID Contract No. HRN-6006-Q-08-3032)

    As part of a series of activities designed to reduce morbidity and mortality from acute respiratory infections in children under the age of 5 in Guatemala, a consultant from the BASICS (Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival) program visited Guatemala in 1995 to analyze, modify, and field test the protocol developed by the USAID Mission to document the degree to which drugs prescribed for pneumonia are available in the community through the private sector. This field report provides background information and describes the current situation in Guatemala in terms of availability of drugs in the public sector through the Ministry of Health, the Drogueria Nacional, municipalities, and the Pan American Health Organization. Relevant activities in the private sector are also described, including the for-profit businesses as well as services provided by UNICEF, the European Union, and nongovernmental organizations. A brief overview of one health area gives an example of the current situation. The result of this consultancy visit was the determination that the situation merited adjustment of the originally requested study and that the survey as designed would likely require modification and application within target communities. Included among the appendices is the original protocol developed for assessing community drug availability.
