"Global Health" zu Besuch bei der WHO in Genf






TDR-WHO Konferenz in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Universitätsklinikum

Dengue-endemic countries and countries with low-level or no dengue transmission are threatened by outbreaks which are detected late and where the response mechanisms are often inadequate. Early detection of outbreaks poses a challenge, since no universally accepted or proven set of indicators exist. Comparative country studies on dengue surveillance, outbreak detection and response using the same methodologies have not been done so far. This has now been initiated by a TDR-WHO lead Research Work Package which is part of a European Union funded research programme (IDAMS) to develop a new model for dengue surveillance and outbreak response, adaptable to individual country requirements and capacities, combining the best of existing strategies with proven novel approaches and tools. The expert meeting in Freiburg, organized together with the task force “Global Health” will analyse the findings in ten Asian and Latin American countries and develop draft recommendations for a model outbreak response plan which has to be later on adapted to specific country needs.

Mental Health in Europe and Asia

Surveillance of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Resource Poor Settings (eculeido). Workshop

Initiator and project manager:
Hans-Christian Stahl, External Co-operation Partner, Global Health Task Force, University Freiburg Medical Centre, Germany.
Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (CL) affects at least every fourth person in Afghanistan – reliable figures are crucially missing.
Neglecting the fact that CL impairs patients for their life, physically, psychologically and socially, especially females, is a burden for the development of new approaches to prevention, treatment or control of CL. CL is not on the agenda of international donors, foundations or western pharmaceutical companies, because CL is not fatal and it is mostly endemic in developing countries that do not represent a profitable market.
Therefore research and development on the prevention, treatment, surveillance, control or elimination of the disease is poor, health services are not motivated, badly equipped or trained, public health policies are weak and patients have no lobby because of lacking public awareness.
The current research project aims at improving (1) CL clinical case management and (2) CL public health management on a facility, regional and national level in Afghanistan (3) and at developing a comprehensive CL management toolkit for worldwide translation on the basis of research results obtained in the field in Afghanistan.
To that end the project combines two approaches: (A) research on innovative systematic smart phone based case documentation in routine care and (B) research on basic clinical standard operation procedures with respect to hygiene (WHO Clean Hands Program) and routine CL wound treatment.
