…in wake of new strategic planBy Sharmain CornettePatients with disability are not always given the requisite optimal care by medical practitioners. This observation has been made by rehabilitation health care providers and has been highlighted in the recently unveiled National Rehabilitation Services Strategy 2009-2013.Director of Rehabilitation Services within the Ministry of Health, Mrs Barbara Lawrence, placed major emphasis on this situation when she outlined the objectives of the strategic plan which is intended to guide the way rehabilitation measures are approached.The failure on the part of medical practitioners to render the appropriate service to disabled persons has resulted in patients appearing at rehabilitation treatment facilities in an already advanced stage in their disability.

Detailed in the strategic plan is that in the national and complex scale of operations, the delivery of quality services cannot be undertaken solely and efficiently by the Ministry of Health.“This is beyond the institutional capacity (human, financial, material and technical) of any single agency in the sector to successfully provide rehabilitation services on a sustained basis.”The multi-sector strategy approach, according to Lawrence, is one where the Ministry while maintaining a leadership and stewardship role, works together with other stakeholders in the sub-sector in ensuring the holistic provision of quality services.And the problems associated with the delivery of rehabilitation will be addressed through collaborating with the National Commission on Disability,Cheap Jerseys From China, networking with social organisations and other stakeholders and in the context of government’s policy declarations,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, strengthened institutional capacity and governance to effectively coordinate the multi-sector response.Further this priority area,Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, according to the strategic plan, will be bolstered through strengthened human resource capacity to effectively coordinate and implement services in the multi-sector response as well as strengthened regional/local institutional capacity to implement and manage rehabilitation services intervention measures.This move, Lawrence has underscored, will help to improve access for persons with disabilities to comprehensive gender-sensitive sexual and reproductive health information and services inclusive of HIV/AIDS prevention, safe motherhood and reproductive health commodities.With an overall strategic goal to reduce preventable disabilities and to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities, the Ministry of Health in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) launched the plan.In presenting a summary of the strategic plan, Lawrence had stressed that the document is very important to the Ministry of Health, as it will serve as a roadmap to the delivery of rehabilitation services over the next five years. She revealed that though the process of developing the plan was extensive it allowed measures to redesign and streamline processes to ensure the provision of high quality rehabilitation services, when and where they are need. The strategic plan also highlights the importance for a clear and distinctive mandate which is intended to ensure the alignment of practices at the local, regional and international levels.The unveiled strategic plan is in fact the second to have been formulated by the Rehabilitation Services Department with the previous covering the period 2004 through 2008. As such the process to prepare the new plan commenced in 2008 with support from partnering organisations including the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO), the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Lawrence disclosed.
