1. Karlsson, Simon. Routine Child Vaccination in Uganda : Designing a vaccination service delivery model.

Degree: 2012, , School of Engineering

This paper provides a new system model for delivering routine vaccination service in Uganda in low resource settings by incorporating the entire supporting infrastructure from vaccination suppliers to vaccination receivers. The model introduces ways of improving access, service quality as well as caretakers’ motivation to complete their children’s vaccination schedule. A system model design is provided together with graphical user interfaces for all agents in the new system. Vaccination service is not easily available and too often not reliable due to rural health facilities being far away and in poor condition with few health workers, and because of an unreliable vaccine supply system (MoH 2010b; USAID 2010). Outreaches are irregular and of ad-hoc character. System wise, a geographically more centralized outreach program in direct connection to district vaccine stores could circumvent unreliable vaccine distribution channels and strengthen vaccine availability and quality. Families experience low motivation and knowledge about vaccination dates for their children to complete immunization programs (Tugumisirize et al. 2002). Community Health Workers, coordinated with help of ICT, can be used to encourage families to complete vaccination and inform them on upcoming vaccination outreach sessions. Qualitative research methodology, with methods including structured, semi-structured and unstructured interviews, observations and literature studies, was chosen to analyze and evaluate the current Ugandan vaccination system. An agile-like product development process was used as a framework for finding and evaluating concepts underlying the artifacts design which represents the system (e.g., GUI). Outcomes of internal evaluations together with representatives of the client organization (ICT4MPOWER) indicate that the new system can increase access and service quality. We conclude that the new system can cure several present issues in vaccination service delivery. However, further studies are needed to appreciate practical feasibility of the new system, for example by considering cost and ICT infrastructure.

2. Santana, Alejandra. THE CHALLENGES THAT PROMOTORES FACE WHEN IMPLEMENTING THEIR PROGRAMS.

Degree: MSW, School of Social Work, 2017, California State University – San Bernardino

This qualitative study examines the challenges that community health workers or Promotores face when implementing their programs to produce better outcomes in the Latino community. Data collection was derived from five local promotores with an adequate knowledge base of expertise in promotores programs. Study themes focused on how promotores implement their programs, the challenges they face and providing professional and personal insight on working with the Latino community. Present day research emphasizes that promotores or the community health worker model approaches have been promoted as a strategy to address health disparities experienced by Latino communities in the U.S. These programs have been implemented in an effort to improve the health of Latino families and bring awareness to public health issues. However, not much is known about the challenges that they face when implementing these interventions. Study results indicated five emerging themes pertaining to the challenges that promotores face when implementing their programs and include: mental health stigma, recruitment, funding barriers, and lack of evaluation. Finally, suggestions for further research on promotores and the Latino community are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Armando Barragán, Ph.D.
