1. [No author]. Health systems in a context of HIV/AIDS : an analysis of impact, health policy and health care reform in KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa.

Degree: Development studies, 2007, University of KwaZulu-Natal

The development of health systems in sub-Saharan Africa has been seriously challenged in the last two decades by the rise of HIV/AIDS. In this thesis I argue that the interface between health policy and HIV/AIDS in South Africa is poorly understood and that this has been to the detriment of fairly radical health care reforms as well as more general health systems development. The research problem outlined above is two-fold, requiring different types of enquiry and analysis. Firstly, there is a gap in our understanding of the impact of HIV/AIDS on health systems. Empirical evidence is presented from research on health facilities and health management structures in Ugu district, KwaZulu-Natal to address this concern. Secondly, it is asserted that our limited understanding of the impact of HIV/AIDS and the nature of the epidemic have prevented a true appreciation of its significance for health policy. This dimension of the problem is addressed through an analysis of South African health policy from 1994 through to the present, as well as a more theoretical look at the potential future influence of the antiretroviral therapy programme on the health system. Both quantitative and qualitative methodologies are employed in this research to acquire empirical insights. Health service utilisation trends are assessed retrospectively by quantitative analysis of key indicators from district and provincial information systems. Meanwhile, the prospective component of the quantitative research can best be described as repeat cross-sectional surveys of a selection of health facilities in Ugu district. These surveys capture data on the profile of patients seeking care and the resource requirements for managing these patients. Qualitative methodologies (predominantly semi-structured interviews) are used at facility level to gain insight into human resource issues and at the management level to better understand health system functioning in relation to HIV/AIDS. One would expect the increasing HIV prevalence and burden of AIDS illness in South Africa to translate into a higher demand for health care. However, this has not occurred in Ugu district, largely because of difficulties with access to care. Despite this, at lower level health services, namely clinics and district hospitals, HIV-related service provision has outpaced an increase in resources. Specifically, the introduction of the antiretroviral therapy programme and the decentralisation of a range of HIV/AIDS services are causing new strains on the system. In essence, the epidemic has created a need to address barriers to accessing care and to expand support for district health services. HIV/AIDS not only increases the demand for health care, but on the supply side erodes the capacity of the health system to deliver care. My research demonstrates that health care workers in KwaZulu-Natal are being severely impacted by the epidemic, with the nature of their work contributing to both their susceptibly and vulnerability. Not only is HIV/AIDS increasing absenteeism and attrition… Advisors/Committee Members: Morris, Michael (advisor), Whiteside, Alan (advisor).
