Capacity for delivery services of non-communicable diseases prevention and management in commune health centers, 2014
Author: Nguyen Hoang Long and Ngo Tri Tuan
Summary:
This study aimed to describe the current available and readiness of resources of commune health centers (CHCs) in selected areas in Vietnam for the prevention and control of diabetes and hypertension in 2014. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 90 CHCs in Hoa Binh, Ha Tinh and Kien Giang provinces. Service availability and readiness assessment (SARA) instrument was used to assess the capacity of CHCs. The results showed that most of CHCs achieved <70% of standards for diabetes diagnosis and management (83.3%), especially in difficult-to-reach areas (97.8%). Meanwhile, the proportion of CHCs having sufficient capacity for hypertension service delivery was high. Most of CHCs reached from 70% to <100% of standards for hypertension management and treatment (59.8%). The results suggested that enhancements and investigations in equipment and capacity of CHCs should be implemented, particularly in remote areas.
