ANNOUNCEMENT

National Conference

Emerging health care models: Engaging the private health sector

 

Centre for Enquiry into Health and Allied Themes (CEHAT), Mumbai invites papers for its National Conference on ‘Emerging health care models: Engaging the private health sector’ on 25-26 September 2009.

 

Prelude

In the past few years, there is gradual shift from mere privatization to much debated Public Private Partnership (PPP) in health sector. The partnerships in health are carried out with small-scale independent providers, non-governmental organizations as well the private for-profit sector. In last five years or so PPP has increasingly earned its importance among policy makers, researchers and program implementers. It has popularly become the buzz word in the discourse on public policy on health care where PPP health care models are now often debated an alternative solution to full privatization. However, there are some questions that need to be looked into: Within these newly emerging health care models, how does one safeguard ‘Right to Health’? How does the public as well as private sector synergize in working towards national health goals through these partnerships? How does one ensure quality and efficiency of the health services? If through regulatory mechanisms, them what are these? 

 

The conference invites papers on any of the following themes:

 

1.      PPPs as emerging models in health sector: Benefits and issues of concern.

2.      Role of the state in PPPs and related reforms in policy and legislation.

3.      Lack of regulation in the private sector and its impact on such partnerships.

4.      State of patients rights in the midst of emerging health sector models. (role of non-state actors – private organizations, international agencies, civil society, Media, etc).

5.      PPP and universal access to health care facilities and equity in health.

 

Important dates:

Last date for receiving abstracts (400-450 words):               15th August 2009.

Last date of receiving full text (e-version):                              11th September 2009.

Conference dates                                                                   25-26th September 2009.

 

 

Note:

Final year Masters Program students and PhD scholars are encouraged to apply to present their research work

(invites) CRY-National Child Rights Research Fellowships 2009 – 10

 

Childhood in India is not uniformly experienced; infact several childhoods co-exist, childhoods of social and economic status, physical and mental ability as well as geographical location to name a few. Respecting children as sovereign, equal members is a step towards recognising their voices in defining their best interest as participants and not just mute beneficiaries.

Child Rights and You (CRY) welcomes applications exploring the various dimensions of child rights, the best interest principle, within the constitutional framework of Justice for Children.

We seek new ideas, a combination of formal and informal approaches to explore and discover, simple and complex truths about the interplay of culture, laws, ethics and policies determining childhoods.

Possible Focus Areas You are welcome to expand and interpret the themes, based on their life experiences and vision.
ľCreativity and imagination, in the experience and expression of childhoods, researching stories, folk songs, poems, as metaphors for social interactions
ľExplorations of the relationships of the child with other children, with the State, community and the family
ľEvidences of the assertion or rejection of the role of children in decision making arenas, such as home, school, work and play spaces and governing institutions v Gather evidence on relationships between ethnicity, inequality and conflict as witnessed and/or experienced by children
ľIs best interest principle, a value, a constitutional right, an interpretative advocacy instrument or a rule of law?

Principles governing the Fellowship

Eligibility: Applicants will be Indians residing in India, above the age of 18 years. Those previously awarded this fellowship are ineligible. Preference will be given to applicants who have studied in government schools, where no fees are charged. (Studies conducted and CRY's experiential learning of working with over 2000 deprived communities in villages and urban slums demonstrates that students attending government schools are primarily Dalits, tribals, girls and children from female headed and/or landless households.)

It is expected that potential fellows ascribe to the CRY values:

Respect for Human Dignity; Secularism; Non-Violence; Accountability; Innovation Transparency; Working in Partnership

Language: Applicants may choose to work in any Indian language including English. Please clearly indicate the language, you plan to work with. As assessment of the application, will be conducted both in English and your working language, please include an English translation of the proposal, CV and work sample.
Grant Sizes: In all up-to 10 fellowships for grant sizes ranging from Rs.50, 000 to Rs.1 lakh will be awarded. These will be support grants and fellows are free to continue their primary occupation. Proposals above one lakh will not be reviewed.

Essential requirements
1. A three-page proposal, which briefly explains your topic of study, outlines the research question within a framework, proposed methodology, time schedules, a reading list of related literature/existing studies on the subject and a detailed budget
2. A two-page CV
3. A sample of your published or unpublished paper/article or any documentation done on a related theme.
Proposals whose duration exceeds a year will not be reviewed

Selected fellows will participate in an initial workshop to share research plans and gain from the collective experience closer to March 2010 and will also participate at a half yearly sharing meeting. CRY will sponsor travel, boarding and lodging for both these meetings. Short-listed applicants will have opportunity to share their ideas and future plans, in conversation with members of the CRY assessment team.

Dissemination: Research results will be made available to activists, academics, development practitioners and interested general public through multiple fora, including language translations to influence the course of the debate on child rights and the best interest principle.

Ownership: While fellows will retain authorship of the final research report and content, all information and insights gathered will be open access and available to the widest possible numbers, for no charge. Fellows are free to publish the insights of their research efforts, with appropriate acknowledgement to the National Child Rights Research Fellowship and CRY.

If your proposal is part of a submission to any academic institution it will be ineligible for this fellowship as also if the fellow is already receiving funding for conduct of the research proposed. In case during the course of the Fellowship, the fellow feels the need to expand the scope and add greater depth, it is expected that CRY will be informed first about the need for additional funds. Also any other donors reached out to will be informed about CRY support for the principal work.

Last Date for application is September 12th, 2009.
Please E-mail your application to: research <at> crymail.org in the absence of internet access you may send your application by post to
CRY-Child Rights and You, Documentation Centre,
189 A, Anand Estate, Sane Guruji Marg, Mumbai 400011.
The names of researchers awarded the Fellowship will be announced on the CRY website Latest by April 2010.
