  • Title: On Regional Fronts - Lifting The Burden Web Site
    Descriptive info: on regional fronts.. There are six world regions defined by the.. World Health Organization.. : Africa; the Americas; Eastern Mediterranean; Europe; South-East Asia; Western Pacific.. Activities on regional fronts create awareness and, through that, favourable climate for change within the countries of each world region.. The principal objective, in each region, is to fill the gaps in knowledge for action.. This requires population-based studies on national or locality fronts.. Studies cannot be conducted in every country within a region, and it is unnecessary and would be wasteful to attempt to do so.. Sufficient are needed in order, reasonably, to extrapolate from countries generating data to others within a region that are geographical neighbours and culturally similar.. Acquisition of knowledge for action at regional level thus supports interventional programmes at.. national  ...   Europe.. : Georgia, Russia;.. South-East Asia.. : India, Indonesia;.. Western Pacific.. : China, South Korea.. Studies have been completed in Georgia, Russia, India and China and are underway in Ethiopia, Zambia, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.. contributing to these activities.. __________________________________.. ____.. Once these epidemiological studies and the estimates of burden attributable to headache are complete,.. expects to show that headache disorders collectively are in the top 10 causes of disability in the world.. _______________________________________.. This will strongly support the next stage: following acquisition of knowledge for action, regional initiatives may include educational and awareness campaigns directed at the general public, health-care providers and health-policy makers.. Again these will support interventions at national or locality levels.. Region-based projects also include the development of.. principles of management.. in preparation for interventional programmes..

  • Title: On Locality and National Fronts - Lifting The Burden Web Site
    Descriptive info: on locality and national fronts.. Localities are areas of common culture that may be larger or smaller than countries.. Activities on locality or national fronts support change in individual countries.. Current priority localities and countries.. In a vertically-integrated programme in each country,.. will:.. work with people and agencies locally;.. measure the headache burden;.. raise awareness of it amongst those who can cause change;.. put in place, and test, locally-appropriate health-care solutions.. This replicates, at local levels, the Campaign's.. three stages.. Wherever knowledge is insufficient of the scale and scope of the local burden attributable to headache,.. new epidemiological studies.. will be undertaken to fill that gap.. Unless the problem is known and understood, effective solutions to it cannot be proposed.. New epidemiological studies conducted on national or locality fronts not only produce knowledge for action on those fronts but also contribute to the estimate of global  ...   from beachheads through planned learning exercises to full demonstrational projects.. The strategy for effective intervention first and absolutely requires local champions.. Second it requires agreement upon the desired and achievable objectives - which should be based on local needs assessment - and upon local priorities.. Desirable is early contact with WHO Regional Offices and national WHO Representatives and/or collaborating centres.. The headache health-care model.. Evaluating the effects of change.. is the not-quite-final step.. must measure the effect of its interventions.. Ideally, although it is methodologically challenging, this is done in terms of reductions in population burden attributable to headache.. The final step is to revise, if evaluation indicates that they should be, and re-apply the modified interventions in plan-do-study-act cycles using standard management of change methodology.. Then they can be rolled out across the locality or country.. Current Priority Localities and Countries.. The Headache Health-care Model..

  • Title: The First Seven Years - Lifting The Burden Web Site
    Descriptive info: the first seven years.. Filling the very large gaps in knowledge for action has been the first priority.. No standard methodology existed for population-based burden-of-headache studies, so.. developed its own.. The model calls for a representative mix of urban and rural population samples, encountered by door-to-door "cold-calling" at randomly-selected households; from each household, one adult, also randomly selected, is interviewed.. The structured diagnostic questionnaire, based on ICHD-II, is validated in a pilot study within the population to be surveyed.. Applying this model, studies have been completed in Georgia.. reference 1.. reference 2.. ].. [reference 3.. and Moldova.. reference 4.. and have reached the analysis stage in Russia.. reference 5.. , China.. reference 6.. and India.. Others are underway in Zambia and Pakistan, and more are planned in Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and, possibly, Morocco, Abu Dhabi, Guatemala, Belize, Serbia and Brazil.. So far, these have revealed an extraordinarily high prevalence of daily headache in countries of Eastern Europe, highly prevalent migraine in Russia and, especially, in India (as represented by Karnataka State), and a prevalence of migraine in China, where it had been thought to be low, that is not very dissimilar from the global average of 11%.. reference 7.. has been a partner in.. Eurolight.. , a project supported by the European Commission Public Health Executive Agency to survey the impact of headache throughout Europe.. This has harvested information from people with headache in Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom.. reference 8.. All of this will soon be published.. As for awareness, at the International Headache Congress in Kyoto in October 2005,.. presented the.. Kyoto Declaration on Headache.. This was drafted with the guidance and signed in the presence not only of WHO's Regional Director for the Western Pacific Region but also of representatives of the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.. secured the inclusion of headache disorders in the.. Atlas of Neurological Disorders.. reference 9.. , produced in 2005 jointly by WHO and the World Federation of Neurology (WFN), and as a major chapter in WHO's later publication,.. Neurological disorders: public health challenges.. reference 10.. All of these, not only because they have the imprimatur of WHO but also because their content is compelling, enter the consciousness of politicians, bringing awareness to them of headache as a substantial cause of public ill-health.. reference 11.. So, too, does.. 's joint review with WHO showing the paucity of headache research in low- and middle-income countries.. reference 12.. , and even more so will the joint global survey for WHO's.. Atlas of Headache Disorders.. , published in May 2011.. reference 13.. The.. , one in the continuing series of Atlases published by WHO, includes data on headache and headache services gathered from more than 100 countries.. Politically more telling than all of these will be the inclusion of migraine and, for the first time, tension-type headache and medication-overuse headache in the new.. Global Burden of Disease Study 2010.. (GBD2010).. GBD2010 is a major revision of GBD2000, the importance of which, for the cause of headache, is that it attributed 1.. 4% of the global disability burden of disease to migraine, putting it in the top 20 causes of disability worldwide.. reference 14.. It is essential for the future that GBD2010 accords due weight to the worldwide burden of headache, and.. has put much into assimilating, analysing and presenting the evidence on which this depends.. As.. considers models of headache service delivery and organization, and endeavours to make evidence-driven recommendations for change.. reference 15.. reference 16.. , one clear principle is that most headache management belongs in primary care.. The numbers of people who need it make this so.. , but it is anyway the case that most headache management does not benefit from involvement of specialists.. Non-specialists in primary care can do it perfectly well, although they do need some training.. Education is a central pillar of beneficial change.. reference 17.. ] [.. reference 18.. Training doctors to be better at managing headache is a huge undertaking on its own, but completely necessary: the current deficiencies in training, themselves engendered by the low  ...   encourage availability worldwide of the drugs most needed to treat headache effectively.. As for actual intervention,.. has developed a headache-service model, to be tested soon in Georgia and later, if plans go forward, in Bulgaria and Abu Dhabi.. The model is adaptable, but involves first assessing local need, together with willingness to pay, upon which sustainability will depend.. The next steps in Georgia are to establish two clinics, provide free care and drugs to geographically-defined populations and show the benefits of treatment to people and of the service to population health.. Once these benefits are apparent, and only then, the service will charge according to willingness to pay in order to become self-sustaining.. Ultimately,.. must evaluate what it helps to create, and amend it, in an iterative process if necessary, to achieve what is best possible.. This raises a fundamental question: what is a good headache service?.. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, "quality" in the context of headache services has no accepted definition.. Indeed it is not easily defined, although in part it must lie in the attainment of good outcomes, which can be measured.. In preparing its proposals for headache-service quality evaluation, soon to be published,.. has undertaken a worldwide consultation.. This is a summary of what has happened in the first seven years of the Campaign.. Not everything has been included.. The activities represent many more than a single step.. reference 24.. ; more importantly, the steps are all in one and the right direction - each part of a cohesive, managed project directed towards a clear purpose..
