  • Short-term (private) gains at the cost of long-term (public) benefits:
           child labour in bidi factories of Bangladesh
    • Authors: Syed Mahbubur Rahman, Monowar Hossein, Md. Shahedul Alam, Md. Hasan Shahriar, Imtiaj Rasul, A.B.M. Zubair
      Pages: 167 - 182
      Abstract: International conventions strictly restrict children from working in hazardous occupations like bidi production. This research aimed at investigating child labour situation in bidi factories operating in the northern part of Bangladesh. The study followed qualitative techniques in an interpretive approach to deduce the phenomenon. Observation was the tool to explore working condition inside the factory, along with group discussion, key informant interview and in-depth interview. Four cases were also studied. The study found that around 50-70% of the labours were children, while the actual number was inconclusive. The family, due to poverty, and tobacco industry, for financial benefit, let adolescents work in bidi factories. Implementation of laws, measures to reduce demand and supply of bidi, and awareness among families are suggested to reduce the number of child labour. Child impact analysis and longitudinal research may be initiated further to analyse the changes in the career of children when grown up.
      Keywords: child labour; bidi industry; Bangladesh; case study; tobacco industry; qualitative research

  • Using the health belief model in social marketing for cholera prevention
    • Authors: Ernest Yaw Tweneboah-Koduah, Nkukpornu Atsu, Raphael Odoom
      Pages: 183 - 199
      Abstract: The application of social marketing has achieved profound success in health-related areas, social vices and environmental concerns in both developed and developing country contexts. The purpose of this paper is to understand behavioural change in cholera prevention using the health belief model (HBM) in social marketing from a developing country context. The study collected data from 250 respondents in Accra. Reliability and validity analyses were conducted on the data, followed by exploratory factor analysis (EFA) in SPSS, followed by confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) in AMOS version 22. Following the preliminary analyses, the data was subjected to multiple regression analysis to test the hypothesised relationships proposed in the model. The study found that, among the constructs of the HBM, perceived susceptibility, perceived barriers, cues to action and self-efficacy are statistically significant in explaining people's behaviour towards cholera prevention. This study has contributed significantly to social marketing literature by applying the HBM in social marketing on cholera prevention in the Ghanaian context.

  • Guest-centric technology innovations at slimming centres
    • Authors: Hasliza Hassan, Muhammad Sabbir Rahman, Abu Bakar Sade
      Pages: 200 - 213
      Abstract: Slimming centres are one of the places commonly considered by people who wish to reshape their body figure, especially women. These slimming centres use technology innovations as a medium to provide slimming treatments to the guests. This research examines the behavioural intention of the guests to experience the technology innovations in Malaysian slimming centres. Primary data were collected through a survey questionnaire handed to those guests who had experienced or were currently experiencing the technology innovations in slimming centres. For confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modelling, 308 data were used. The performance expectancy and facilitating conditions are the key influencing behavioural intentions for the guests to experience the technology innovations at slimming centres. On reflection, the effort expectancy and social influence do not directly encourage the guests to experience the slimming treatment. A high standard of performance expectancy and facilitating conditions that could be provided by the slimming centres encourage the guests to try and continuously experience the services provided. These two criteria should be the pillars to market the technology innovations of the slimming centres. This research has identified the main behavioural intentions for the guests to experience the technology innovations in slimming centres.

  • Diabetes knowledge and self-care activities among tuberculosis patients
           with diabetes in Malaysia
    • Authors: Siti Rohana Ahmad, Wan Mohd Zahiruddin Wan Mohammad, Nor Azwany Yaacob, Mat Zuki Jaeb, Zalmizy Hussin
      Pages: 214 - 224
      Abstract: Good glycaemic control is known to have an effect on TB treatment success. This study aimed to describe the sociodemographic and clinical profile, diabetes knowledge and diabetes self-care activities among diabetes patients being treated for TB disease and examine how does their diabetes self-care activities related to blood glucose control. A cross-sectional study involving 97 TB patients with diabetes undergoing treatment of TB in the 27 public TB treatment centres in Kelantan, Malaysia was conducted from 1st May 2017 to 30th June 2017. Diabetes knowledge and self-care activities were assessed using questionnaires. The mean diabetes knowledge and diabetes self-care score were low, 6.89 ± 1.22 and 30.47 ± 3.45, respectively. Diabetes self-care activities score had significant relationship with HbA1c level (β = −0.06, p-value = 0.002). The results demonstrated an inadequate diabetes knowledge and self-care activities and a connection between low diabetes self-care activities and poor glycaemic control.

  • Eschewing love of money and materialism: a potential step towards avoiding
           nurses' intention to quit
    • Authors: Samuel Awuni Azinga, Nestor Asiamah, Henry Kofi Mensah
      Pages: 225 - 236
      Abstract: This study examined the effect of love of money and materialism on nurses' intention to quit their jobs. Primary (cross-sectional) data was gathered and used in this study. We applied a quantitative technique to evaluate relationships of interest, and the simple random sampling procedure was used to select 456 nurses across hospitals in Accra, Ghana. A self-reported questionnaire was used to gather data. Pearson's correlation test and structural equation modelling (SEM) were used to analyse data, with potential confounding variables controlled for. The structural SEM model produced a good fit at 5% significance level [<i>χ</i><SUP align="right">2</SUP> = 1.543; <i>p</i> = 0.401]. Materialism made a significant positive effect on love of money and intention to quit (<i>p</i> < 0.05), while love of money did not predict the intention of nurses to quit. The study concluded that nurses' avoidance of materialism and love of money can be a way to reduce their intention to quit. Cutting back on the pay of nurses is however not a suitable way to discourage materialism and love of money, but programs can be instituted to motivate nurses to spend money productively and channel surplus income into high yielding provident funds.

    • Authors: Shaimaa Ali Mohamed Abd El Fatah, Walaa Ahmed Khairy, Marwa Rashad Salem
      Pages: 237 - 250
      Abstract: Clients satisfaction has long been considered an important component when measuring primary healthcare PHC outcomes and quality of care. The objective of this study is to measure clients' satisfaction with primary healthcare services in El Talbia Family Health Centre (FHC). Through an exploratory cross-sectional facility-based study, 200 clients were interviewed about their degree of satisfaction with services. The data were collected by a pre-tested standardised client satisfaction questionnaire (CS-42) and analysed by SPSS software. Mean age of participants was 29.8 + 7.19 years. The mean of the overall satisfaction score was 0.97+ 0.38 out of 2. The highest mean score of satisfaction for the aspect of services was for affordability (1.72) followed the humanness of staff (1.59). PHC could be recommended as a comprehensive strategy to provide health services in public health. Paying attention to client's satisfaction is a basic step for quality improvement and should be done intermittently.

  • Leveraging word-of-mouth as a payback from patients of private hospitals:
           the role of healthcare quality delivery
    • Authors: Nestor Asiamah, Frank Frimpong Opuni, Francis Kofi Sobre Frimpong
      Pages: 251 - 267
      Abstract: This study investigates healthcare quality delivery as a potential way of achieving word-of-mouth and some beneficial outcomes that serve as customers' payback to private hospitals. A cross-sectional correlational design was employed to assess key relationships. A self-reported questionnaire was used to collect data from 481 volunteer patients of private hospitals in Accra. Pearson's correlation test and structural equation modelling (SEM) were used to present findings. Healthcare quality in terms of tangibles, empathy, and responsiveness is positively associated with patients' word-of-mouth communication, which in turn makes a significant positive effect on hospital revisits, number of new patients referred, and service experience (of existing patients) at 1% significance level. The study concludes that private hospitals can improve their revenue base and make their services sustainable by achieving and improving patients' word-of-mouth communication through the delivery of quality healthcare.

  • Adopting innovative approaches to cervical cancer screening among women in
           developing countries: evidence from Nigeria
    • Authors: Oluwatosin Eniola Ilevbare, Adekunle A. Adegoke, Olamiji J. Onifade
      Pages: 268 - 287
      Abstract: The study investigated the adoption of cervical cancer screening (CCS) among women in Ibadan, Nigeria. The relationship between knowledge and adoption of CCS; and relationship between perception (perceived barriers and perceived benefits) and adoption of CCS among the study population were examined. The data collected from 1,000 women were analysed using appropriate statistical and econometrics techniques. A low (12.3%) uptake of cervical cancer screening was reported, knowledge had no significant relationship with screening uptake; there was however a significant relationship between perceived barriers to screening (OR = 1.078, 95% C.I. = 1.007-1.153, p = 0.30) and screening uptake. It concluded that there is an abysmal poor level of knowledge and subsequent low uptake of cervical cancer screening among women in Ibadan, however there is a future intention to uptake the screening if the screening services are available close to them, at a reduced cost and when socio-cultural barriers are adequately addressed.
