    Cruelty by design: how African cities discriminate against people with disabilities2019Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Africa is currently home to some 78 million people with disabilities. Meanwhile, recent years have seen the size and populations of the continent’s major cities increasing at a startling rate. As a result, there is a pressing need to consider issues of urban design and accessibility, and how they affect people with disabilities.

    Ebola exhausts health systems: more resources are needed2014Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Epidemics and institutional responses to them reveal the strengths and weaknesses of health systems. They also often engender and reflect existing political, economic and social tensions whenever and wherever they occur. This policy note outlines some of acute and chronic political and social conditions that have facilitated transmission and continue to pose a challenge for community and government responses to Ebola. It also highlights the significance of building health systems to avert and address future health crises.

    Ebola: accurate information prevents rumours and panic: educating leaders is one measure - along with distributing soap2015Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The Ebola epidemic in West Africa is unprecedented in its scope. This Policy Note stresses the importance of knowledge of social factors in preventing the spread of the fatal disease. There are similarities with the previous HIV/AIDS epidemic. Traditional healers and heads of households are key players for health experts to target in protecting people against infection. Normal funeral services are one source of infection. A very basic preventive measure is providing families with soap.

    HIV and Income Inequality: If there is a link, what does it tell us?2009Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a striking variation in the prevalence of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) among countries and regions of the world, with a distinct geographical pattern. This paper explores the link between income inequality and HIV. It presents empirical evidence—a meta-study and additional cross-country regression results—that clearly support the argument that such a link exists. The interpretation of this link is an open issue. Four different hypotheses are discussed, each one pointing out a transit route from income inequality to HIV. The paper presents preliminary evidence on these routes and identifies potential areas for future research.

    Religion and Health: exploration of attitudes and health perceptions of faith healing users in urban Ghana2018Ingår i: BMC Public Health, ISSN 1471-2458, E-ISSN 1471-2458, artikel-id 18:1358Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The main aim of the study was to explore the attitudes and health perceptions of faith healing usersin Kumasi Metropolis, Ghana. This has become necessary because faith healing practice is an important areabut remains neglected in the health care literature. In an age when biowestern medicine is touted as the cure for most diseases, understanding how and why individuals seek alternative treatment, specifically faith healingmodalities may help to develop more effective health care interventions. Methods: We employed exploratory study design of purely qualitative research approach involving 40 conveniently selected participants from four different purposively selected faith healing centres to get a maximum variation of experiences and opinions on the time of consultation, perceived effectiveness and challenges of faith healing practices in Ghana. In-depth interviews were conducted from 10th June to 30th July, 2017. Data were thematically analysed and presented based on the a posteriori inductive reduction approach. Results: The main findings were that faith healers served as the first port of call for disease curing and prevention formost users. Consumers of faith healing perceived their health status to be good due to the perceived effectiveness offaith healing for curing of health problems. However, users faced challenges such as stigmatisation and victimisation inseeking health care. Conclusion: This study has provided the first baseline evidence in this important area of inquiry that has beenneglected in the scholarly discourse in Ghana. By implication, users’ positive attitudes and perceptions toward faithhealing call for integration policies that allow formal medical services to have open idea to faith healing practices in Ghana.
