Empleo, trabajo y desigualdades en salud : una visión global( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En las dos últimas décadas, la investigación en salud pública y salud laboral ha ido ampliando paulatinamente su campo de estudio dando cabida a las condiciones de empleo en su relación con la salud y, más recientemente, con la desigualdad. No obstante, los estudios realizados apenas si analizan la situación de los países de renta media y baja, las causas de las desigualdades, o las políticas que ayuden a mejorar la salud y reducir la desigualdad, entre otros temas. Este libro, cuyo origen fue el informe realizado en el 2007 por la Red de Condiciones de Empleo (EMCONET) como parte del trabajo para la Comisión sobre Determinantes Sociales de la Salud de la OMS, ofrece una visión integral de cómo las condiciones de empleo afectan a las desigualdades de salud de los trabajadores y trabajadoras en todo el mundo. Este estudio presenta un marco conceptual que permite entender las causas y consecuencias de las condiciones de empleo sobre la salud y calidad de vida en contextos económicos y políticos muy distintos, muestra una clasificación de países según su mercado de trabajo, describe situaciones muy diversas del mercado laboral y de los problemas de salud de los trabajadores mediante un amplio número de «estudios de caso», y, entre otros muchos temas, analiza la actual crisis económica, identificando los cambios institucionales y las políticas necesarias para reducir la inequidad en salud. Este volumen se dirige tanto a los especialistas de salud pública, desigualdades de salud, y salud laboral, como a los investigadores en ciencias políticas y sociales, y a los activistas y miembros de sindicatos y movimientos sociales y, en general, a aquellos lectores y lectoras interesados sin un conocimiento previo especializado sobre estos temas

Exploring complex causal pathways between urban renewal, health and health inequality using a theory-driven realist approach( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Introduction : Urban populations are growing and to accommodate these numbers, cities are becoming more involved in urban renewal programs to improve the physical, social and economic conditions in different areas. This paper explores some of the complexities surrounding the link between urban renewal, health and health inequalities using a theory-driven approach.Methods : We focus on an urban renewal initiative implemented in Barcelona, the Neighbourhoods Law, targeting Barcelona's (Spain) most deprived neighbourhoods. We present evidence from two studies on the health evaluation of the Neighbourhoods Law, while drawing from recent urban renewal literature, to follow a four-step process to develop a program theory. We then use two specific urban renewal interventions, the construction of a large central plaza and the repair of streets and sidewalks, to further examine this link.Discussion : In order for urban renewal programs to affect health and health inequality, neighbours must use and adapt to the changes produced by the intervention. However, there exist barriers that can result in negative outcomes including factors such as accessibility, safety and security.Conclusion : This paper provides a different perspective to the field that is largely dominated by traditional quantitative studies that are not always able to address the complexities such interventions provide. Furthermore, the framework and discussions serve as a guide for future research, policy development and evaluation. Highlights: Urban renewal programs can affect health and health equity. We present some of the pathways linking urban renewal programs and health. Realist evaluation, a theory-driven approach was used to discuss potential causal pathways. Mechanisms linking public spaces and street repairs to health are discussed

Inequalities in Mental Health in the Spanish Autonomous Communities: A Multilevel Study( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The aim of this study was to analyze inequalities in the prevalence of poor mental health and their association with socioeconomic variables and with the care network in the Autonomous Communities in Spain. A cross-sectional multilevel study was performed, which analyzed individual data from the National Health Survey in Spain (ENS), in 2006 ( n = 29, 476 people over the age of 16). The prevalence of poor mental health was the dependent variable, measured by the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12 > = 3). Individual and contextual socioeconomic variables, along with mental health services in the Autonomous Communities, were included as independent variables. Models of multilevel logistic regression were used, and odds ratios (OR) were obtained, with confidence intervals (CI) of 95%. The results showed that there are inequalities in the prevalence of poor mental health in Spain, associated to contextual variables, such as unemployment rate (men OR 1.04 CI 1.01–1.07; women OR 1.02 CI 1.00–1.05). On the other hand, it was observed that inequalities in the mental health care resources in the Autonomous Communities also have an impact on poor mental health

Out-of-School-Time Academic Programs to Improve School Achievement( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Context: Low-income and minority status in the United States are associated with poor educational outcomes, which, in turn, reduce the long-term health benefits of education. Objective: This systematic review assessed the extent to which out-of-school-time academic (OSTA) programs for at-risk students, most of whom are from low-income and racial/ethnic minority families, can improve academic achievement. Because most OSTA programs serve low-income and ethnic/racial minority students, programs may improve health equity. Design: Methods of the Guide to Community Preventive Services were used. An existing systematic review assessing the effects of OSTA programs on academic outcomes (Lauer et al 2006; search period 1985-2003) was supplemented with a Community Guide update (search period 2003-2011). Main Outcome Measure: Standardized mean difference. Results: Thirty-two studies from the existing review and 25 studies from the update were combined and stratified by program focus (ie, reading-focused, math-focused, general academic programs, and programs with minimal academic focus). Focused programs were more effective than general or minimal academic programs. Reading-focused programs were effective only for students in grades K-3. There was insufficient evidence to determine effectiveness on behavioral outcomes and longer-term academic outcomes. Conclusions: OSTA programs, particularly focused programs, are effective in increasing academic achievement for at-risk students. Ongoing school and social environments that support learning and development may be essential to ensure the longer-term benefits of OSTA programs. Abstract : Supplemental Digital Content is Available in the Text. This review assesses the extent to which out-of-school-time academic programs for at-risk students from low-income and racial/ethnic minority families can improve academic achievement and in turn improve health equity
Welfare States, Labor Markets, Political Dynamics, and Population Health( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent scholarship offers different theories on how macrosocial determinants affect the population health of East and Southeast Asian nations. Dominant theories emphasize the effects of welfare regimes, welfare generosity, and labor market institutions. In this article, we conduct exploratory time-series cross-sectional analyses to generate new evidence on these theories while advancing a political explanation. Using unbalanced data of 7 East Asian countries and 11 Southeast Asian nations from 1960 to 2012, primary findings are 3-fold. First, welfare generosity measured as education and health spending has a positive impact on life expectancy, net of GDP. Second, life expectancy varies significantly by labor markets; however, these differences are explained by differences in welfare generosity. Third, as East and Southeast Asian countries become more democratic, welfare generosity increases, and population health improves. This study provides new evidence on the value of considering politics, welfare states, and labor markets within the same conceptual framework
Health-system reform and universal health coverage in Latin America( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Starting in the late 1980s, many Latin American countries began social sector reforms to alleviate poverty, reduce socioeconomic inequalities, improve health outcomes, and provide financial risk protection. In particular, starting in the 1990s, reforms aimed at strengthening health systems to reduce inequalities in health access and outcomes focused on expansion of universal health coverage, especially for poor citizens. In Latin America, health-system reforms have produced a distinct approach to universal health coverage, underpinned by the principles of equity, solidarity, and collective action to overcome social inequalities. In most of the countries studied, government financing enabled the introduction of supply-side interventions to expand insurance coverage for uninsured citizens—with defined and enlarged benefits packages—and to scale up delivery of health services. Countries such as Brazil and Cuba introduced tax-financed universal health systems. These changes were combined with demand-side interventions aimed at alleviating poverty (targeting many social determinants of health) and improving access of the most disadvantaged populations. Hence, the distinguishing features of health-system strengthening for universal health coverage and lessons from the Latin American experience are relevant for countries advancing universal health coverage
