1. Maulet, Nathalie. Perspectives des femmes prises en charge pour fistule obstétricale au Mali et au Niger.

Degree: 2015, Université Catholique de Louvain

Obstetric fistula is a severe obstetric morbidity. Consequences of fistula (stillbirth, incontinence, foot drop, stigma, etc.) change the life course of those still suffering from it in sub-Saharan Africa. Obstetric fistula management aims a multidisciplinary and holistic approach. Yet, scientific research and health system interventions mainly focus on surgery. One hundred and thirty four women were interviewed during and after their fistula treatment in Mali and Niger. Results highlighted a great diversity in patients’ paths: some just arrived in the fistula center; others stayed there for several months or kept coming back. All remained vulnerable. Women perceived obstetric fistula as a chronic and debilitating disease. They were in search of '' normality '' as much as continence. Obstetric fistula management period resulted in intertwined positive and adverse effects on women’s health and future prospects.

La fistule obstétricale est une morbidité obstétricale grave. Ses conséquences (enfant mort-né, incontinence, stigma, etc.) modifient le cours de la vie des femmes qui en sont encore victimes en Afrique subsaharienne. La prise en charge de la fistule obstétricale se veut multidisciplinaire et holistique. Dans la recherche scientifique comme dans le système de santé, elle reste néanmoins centrée sur la chirurgie. A travers l’expérience de 134 femmes rencontrées pendant et après leur prise en charge au Mali et au Niger, cette recherche met en évidence les parcours très diversifiés des patientes : certaines viennent d’arriver au centre de prise en charge d’autres y sont, ou y reviennent, depuis plusieurs mois. Toutes restent vulnérables. Les femmes perçoivent la fistule comme une maladie chronique et invalidante. Elles sont autant en quête de ‘‘normalité’’ que de continence. La période de prise en charge n’influence pas que favorablement leur santé et leurs perspectives d’avenir.

2. Nuggehalli Srinivas, Prashanth. Capacity building and performance in local health systems.

Degree: 2015, Université Catholique de Louvain

In countries such as India, local health systems struggle to utilise their resources optimally and to deliver quality health services in an effective manner. While the reasons for these are many, poor health management capacity has been postulated to contribute to this problem. Understanding how public health organisations can move towards change through capacity building interventions is crucial to strengthening health systems. By studying a capacity building intervention of health managers in Tumkur district of southern India using realist evaluation approach, we advance the understanding of how these interventions could contribute to organisational change. We find that capacity building programmes need to go much beyond transfer of knowledge and skills in order to effect organisational change and identify several individual and institutional factors and various alignments within decentralising local health systems that are crucial to achieving change. We conclude that human resources management strategies in Karnataka ought to invest in altering workplace conditions and organisational culture through restructuring the current health bureaucracy so that committed health managers could better utilise change opportunities presented by capacity building programmes.
