Theme: Gender Inequities in Publicly Funded Health Insurance Schemes

Summary of the talk: In this webinar, the speaker unravels gender inequities in social protection mechanisms for health and challenges the gender neutrality stance of publicly funded health insurance schemes (PFHIS).  She discusses the several gender-based barriers in the pathway to access healthcare under the PFHIS drawing from her recently completed a doctoral study on Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme. Concepts such as ‘household’, ‘access’ and ‘coping’ are revisited using a gender lens.

Theme:

Engaging communities in health research priority-setting is a key means of setting research topics and questions of relevance and benefit to them. But communities, especially those considered disadvantaged and marginalised, rarely have a say in the agendas and priorities of the very health research projects that aim to help them.

How can researchers and communities share power and ownership when setting priorities for health research projects? An “ethical toolkit” is being developed to help researchers and their partners design inclusive priority-setting processes for health research projects. The toolkit places community engagement and power-sharing at the heart of health research priority-setting. It is a reflective project planning aid for use before priority-setting is undertaken for a health research project. It consists of 3 worksheets and a companion document.

In today’s workshop, the ethical toolkit will be introduced to workshop participants and they will be able to give comments and feedback. Then workshop participants will have the opportunity to apply the toolkit to their current/upcoming health research projects in small groups. (The toolkit is currently not publicly available but will be provided to participants at
the workshop.)

The fourth edition of the ‘National Conference on Tobacco or Health’ concluded recently in Mumbai (8-10 February 2019). It saw a range of stakeholders across Indian states coming together in what the conference’s organizing secretary described as the “Kumbh Mela” of tobacco control. The Institute of Public Health (Bengaluru) had a strong presence at the conference, attended by Upendra Bhojani, Faculty and India Alliance Fellow, and his team, Aparna Vincent and Amiti Varma. Upendra served as a co-chair for the pre-conference and presented on ‘research ethics’ as part of a pre-conference workshop on research priorities for tobacco control in India. Apart from chairing a couple of sessions in the conference, he presented on the politics of tobacco and on tobacco industry interference, including in the closing plenary of the conference. Amiti presented on behalf of Pragati Hebbar (IPH faculty and India Alliance Fellow) on studying the implementation of tobacco control laws in India.

The NCTOH has been an important platform for individuals and organizations working on tobacco control across all of India to come together, and the 4th NCTOH was equally enriching and productive.

Jaison B Kolenchery, a Masters in Molecular Genetics from Leicester University, UK and currently completing his PhD at Exeter University, UK would be presenting a seminar on the topic ‘Understanding Humans’.
As humans, we pride ourselves in our perceived intellectual superiority over other living beings that inhabit the earth. While we have achieved so much regarding our scientific understanding of the natural world and technology, we have so much more to accomplish in the areas of discrimination and unhealthy behaviours. This presentation attempts to briefly introduce some peculiar cognitive disorders, biases and logical fallacies in the hope to gain a better understanding of our behaviours and cognitive processes. Furthermore, this may also help in strategising and moulding our circumstances to reduce the incidence of irrational behaviours.Institute of Public Health Bengaluru is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

The Institute of Public Health (IPH), Bengaluru is a not-for-profit academic research organisation that has been conducting health systems research in close coordination with governments in India. In October 2016, our FCRA license was not renewed without specifying any reasons (see our earlier statement here). Subsequently, we had appealed to the Karnataka high court.

On January 28 (2019), the honourable high court passed a final order that set aside an earlier order by FCRA authority regarding non-renewal of IPH’s FCRA license on the grounds that the authority did not specify any reasons for non-renewal of the license. The court directed the FCRA authority to consider the renewal application of the petitioner for grant of FCRA license afresh by a speaking order within a period of one month. We welcome this order and reiterate our commitment to compliance and cooperation with the FCRA authority hoping for the positive consideration of our renewal application. We express our gratitude to our staff and ex-staff, friends and collaborators who comforted us and extended direct and indirect support in difficult times. We are indeed thankful to government agencies that have supported and appreciated our work and have welcomed us as their partners.
