1 THE ORGANIZATION OF THE PRIMARY HEALTH CARE FOR THE URBAN POPULATION Elena A. Abumuslimova Ph.D., Assistant Professor Department of Public Health and Health Care, Northern-West State Medical University named after I.I. Mechnikov, Saint-Petersburg

2 D ECLARATION OF A LMA -A TA health for all In 1978 the WHO Declaration of Alma-Ata launched primary health care as the route to health for all. This was a deliberate effort to tackle huge, and largely avoidable, differences in the health status of populations. It means that people should not be denied access to life-saving and health-promoting interventions for unfair reasons, including those with economic or social causes.

3 WHO: T HE W ORLD H EALTH R EPORT, 2008 Primary health care is a people-centered approach to health that makes prevention as important as cure. As part of this preventive approach, it tackles the root causes of ill health, also in non-health sectors, thus offering an upstream attack on threats to health. A primary health care approach is the most efficient, fair, and cost-effective way to organize a health system. It can prevent much of the disease burden, and it can also prevent people with minor complaints from flooding the emergency wards of hospitals. … primary health care produces better outcomes, at lower costs, and with higher user satisfaction.


5 F IVE KEY ELEMENTS TO ACHIEVING THAT GOAL : reducing exclusion and social disparities in health (universal coverage reforms); organizing health services around people's needs and expectations (service delivery reforms); integrating health into all sectors (public policy reforms); pursuing collaborative models of policy dialogue (leadership reforms); increasing stakeholder participation.

6 G LOBAL T ARGETS OF PHC BY WHO(1) All people in every country will have ready access at least to essential health care & to first- level referral facilities All people will be actively involved in carring for themselves & their families, as far as they can, in community action for health Communities throughout the world will share governments responsibility for the health care of their members All governments will assume the overall responsibility for the health of their people Safe drinking water & sanitation will be available to all people

7 G LOBAL T ARGETS OF PHC BY WHO (2) All people will be adequately nourished All children will be immunizes against the major diseases of childhood Communicable diseases in the developing countries will be of no greater public health significance than they were in the developed countries All possible ways will be applied to prevent & control non-communicable diseases& promote mental health through influencing the life styles & controlling the physical & psychological environment Essential drugs will be available to all

8 O BSTACLES TO THE I MPLEMENTATION OF PHC S TRATEGY Misinterpretation of the PHC Concept Misconception that PHC is a second rate health care for poor Selective PHC Strategies Resistance to Change Lack of political will Centralized Planning & Management Infrastructure

9 R EASONS FOR SLOW PROGRESS TOWARDS H EALTH F OR A LL (1) Insufficient Political commitment to implementation of HFA Failure to achieve equity in access to all PHC elements The continuing low status of women Slow socioeconomic development Difficulty in achieving intersectoral action for health Unbalanced distribution of, and week support for, human resources

10 R EASONS FOR SLOW PROGRESS TOWARDS H EALTH F OR A LL (2) Widespread inadequacy of health promotion activities Weak health information systems and no baseline data Pollution, poor food safety, and lack of safe water supply and sanitation Rapid demographic and epidemiological changes Inappropriate use of, and allocation of resources for, high cost technology Natural and man-made disasters

11 N EW T RENDS THAT WILL INFLUENCE H EALTH IN THE 21 ST CENTURY Widespread absolute and relative poverty Demographic changes: aging and growth of cities Epidemiological changes: continuing high incidence of infections diseases; increasing incidence of non-communicable diseases, injuries and violence Global environmental threats to human survival New technologies: information and telemedicine services Advances in biotechnology Globalization of trade, travel and spread of values and ideas

12 P RIMARY H EALTH C ARE IN THE 21 TH CENTURY Policy Objectives to Reinforce the PHC approach by WHO: Make health central to development and enhance prospects for intersectoral action Combat poverty as a reflection of PHCs concern for social justice Promote equity in access to health care Build partnerships to include families, communities and their organizations Reorient health systems towards promotion of health and prevention of disease

13 P RIMARY HEALTH CARE BY WHO PHC is essential health care based on practical, scientifically sound, and socially acceptable methods and technology made universally accessible to individuals and families in the community through their full participation and at a cost that the community and the country can afford… It forms an integral part of the countrys health system, of which it is the central function and the main focus, and of the overall social and economic development of the community

14 P RINCIPLES OF PHC Health Prevention & Promotion Equity Appropriate Technology Community Participation Intersectoral Coordination Decentralization

15 C OMPONENTS OF PHC Education concerning prevailing health problems & the methods of preventing & controlling them Promotion of food supply and proper nutrition An adequate supply of safe water and basic sanitation Maternal and Child Health (MCH) including Family Planning (FP) Immunization against major infectious diseases Prevention and control of locally endemic diseases Appropriate treatment of common diseases and injuries Provision of essential drugs


17 E STABLISHMENTS IN PHC IN R USSIA Polyclinic (render the territorial polyclinics serving adult population) Children's polyclinics Female consultations protect the motherhood and the childhood


19 T HE MAIN ASPECTS OF WORK OF A MUNICIPAL POLICLINIC medical – diagnostic work medical – diagnostic work, including selection for sanatorium-and-spa treatment, examination of temporary disability, reference to medical- social examination; preventive work, sanitary – antiepidemic work preventive work, sanitary – antiepidemic work ; organizational – methodical work organizational – methodical work (management, planning, statistical account and reporting, analysis of activity, improvement of professional skills, etc); organizational – mass work organizational – mass work (sanitary – hygienic education of the population, popularization of a healthy way of life).

Dispensary method is regular active supervision Dispensary method is regular active supervision over a state of health of the certain groups of patients which include: active early revelation; dynamic follow up; complex sanitation.

33 T HE EVALUATION OF THE ORGANIZATION OF THE DISPENSERISATION Quality of dispenserisation: Quality of dispenserisation: 1. coverage by dispensary supervision of those who were not observed within one year period, 2. coverage by various social–prophylactic and medical– preventive measures (sanatorium-and-spa treatment, invalid food, rational employment, etc.); Efficiency of dispensarization: 1. dynamics of morbidity rate and disease rate according to MRTD (morbidity rate with temporary disability) – for working persons; 2. general disease rate – due to the main and accompanying pathology; 3. hospitalized morbidity; 4. incapacity, including primary one; 5. lethality; 6. outcomes of dispensarisation according to annual account – recovery, improvement, without changes, deterioration.

34 E STIMATION OF ACTIVITY OF MUNICIPAL POLYCLINIC The analysis of activity of out-patient – polyclinic establishments is carried out for: the improvement of organization of work of municipal polyclinics, current and forward planning of their activity; evaluation of efficiency of various methods of treatment evaluation of efficiency of diagnostic, new medical technologies and new forms of the organization of work; evaluation of quality of rendering of the primary medical-aid to urban population.

35 Occupation of posts of doctors Ratio number of physician posts to number of posts of the middle medical personnel Dynamics of patient visits to the polyclinic Distribution of visits of a polyclinic by the form of application (for treatment or for preventive medical check up) Loading for a medical post (for a year, month, reception hours) Completeness of coverage of the population served by a polyclinic by preventive medical check ups Q UANTITATIVE COEFFICIENTS OF ACTIVITY OF MUNICIPAL POLYCLINIC

36 Q UALITATIVE COEFFICIENTS OF ACTIVITY OF MUNICIPAL POLYCLINIC A level of the general disease rate (due to visits) A level of disease rate with certain diseases Structure of the general disease rate Primary disablement Structure of primary disablement Structure of contingents of the disabled persons Death rate at home Relative number of incorrect diagnoses Number of the advanced cases of oncologic diseases Frequency of cases (days) of temporary disablement. Structure of disease rate with temporary disablement etc.
