  • More Than the Pandemic

    • Authors: H Elliott Larson
      Pages: 1 - 2
      Abstract: It is fitting for this issue of the Christian Journal for Global Health to come to you just before Christmas.  We remember the birth of the Christ child, God with us.  God with us not just in the ordinariness of human life, but in the calamities, defeats, and suffering entailed in that ordinariness. The coronavirus pandemic, as well as myriad of other human afflictions, is a reminder of those aspects of life.  Surely the greatest spiritual lesson of the pandemic is that we are not the masters of our own destiny.  The pandemic is a rebuke to the hubris of our age – that human knowledge is the remedy for all ills.  Responses to the pandemic have exposed the fissures in our societies as well. While the healthcare community has responded heroically to the challenges, churches have served as a much-needed solace and source of health information, as well as, at times, sources of spread. Some who consider faith non-essential and are antagonistic to it have proposed severe restrictions to much-needed fellowship.   In the providence of God, we are able to rejoice at the arrival of effective vaccines to prevent SARS CoV-2 infection, the world-wide calamity that has dogged us for nearly an entire year.  The vaccines come out-of-time, as it were, having been developed, produced, and tested with a speed that is astonishing.  Hopefully, they will enable this devastating infectious disease to be put behind us.  If that proves to be possible, it is salutary to ponder what is able to be anticipated and to appreciate the perspicacity of someone like Dr. Jono Quick, whose book, The End of Epidemics, foresaw in 2018 what came to pass in 2020.  For additional insights, we are pleased to feature in this issue a guest editorial by Dr. Quick which surveys some of the challenges that the release, use, and equitable global distribution of the vaccines hold for us, as well as the Christian responsibility to follow the data for both individualized whole-person care and community care as acts of love for our global neighbor. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted systemic vulnerabilities, health inequities, and the ongoing diseases and conditions that continue to threaten individuals and populations. The response to the pandemic has affected the global economy and exacerbated hunger and extreme poverty. Progress in global health to control the remaining poliovirus, HIV, malaria and tuberculosis has also been tragically impaired due to the pandemic.1   Two original articles describe efforts to evaluate health needs for chronically impoverished villages and then to train Christian health workers in the ways to most effectively service those needs.  Claudia Bale reports that the results of surveying Guatemalan villages for health needs and barriers to health produced a variety of themes that provided guidance for the organizations seeking to meet these needs.  Sneha Kirubakaran and colleagues evaluated a short course in global health from Australia that sought to prepare Christian health workers for international service. This issue features three reviews.  Samuel Adu-Gyamfi and his colleagues from Ghana completed an extensive systematic review of the role of missions in Sub-Saharan Africa, finding that although the scope of work changed over time, the aim of sharing the gospel motivated work in a broad scope of activities in development, education, and healthcare which continues to be relevant.  Omololu Fagunwa from Nigeria provides a history lesson based on original source documents on how the 1918 influenza pandemic affected the growth of Pentecostalism in Africa.  Alexander Miles, Matthew Reeve, and Nathan Grills from University of Melbourne completed a systematic literature review showing evidence of the significant effectiveness of community health workers in dealing with non-communicable diseases in India. Two commentaries offer fresh approaches to persisting healthcare issues.  Richard Thomas and Niels French describe the population health model and explain how it is particularly suited to a role in the future for mission hospitals and to address a variety of global health concerns.  Melody Oereke, Kenneth David, and Ezeofor Onyedikachukwu from Nigeria offer their thoughts on how Christian pharmacists can employ a model for prayer, faith, and action in their professional calling.  The coronavirus pandemic has required healthcare and aid organizations to come up with creative solutions to completely novel circumstances if they were to be able to continue their ministries.  Daryn Joy Go and her colleagues from International Care Ministries describe their employment of social networking technologies in the Philippines to continue their work in extreme poverty alleviation as well as spiritual nourishment despite lockdown conditions and severe limitations on travel and communication. Finally, Pieter Nijssen reviews Creating Shared Resilience:  The Role of the church in a Hopeful Future, by David Boan and Josh Ayers.  In our world of short-term gain and short attention spans, resilience is a commodity in tragically short suppl...

  • Identifying Communities’ Perspectives on their Health Needs in
           Impoverished Villages to Guide Non-government Organizations’ Health
           Promotion Efforts in Guatemala

    • Authors: Claudia Bale
      Pages: 9 - 20
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this mixed-methods study is to capture and understand impoverished Guatemalan community members’ perspectives of their own health needs on a community level in order to guide Hope of Life (HOL) Non-Profit organization’s health promotion interventions in the villages they serve. Methods: A modified health needs assessment survey was conducted with 96 participants from four impoverished villages in the department of Zacapa, Guatemala. Survey responses were analyzed for significant differences in 4-item individual, family, and community health scores across demographic variables and significant correlations with reported personal health conditions and children’s health conditions. Five semi-structured interviews were also conducted with community leaders from three of the villages surveyed. Interviews were audio recorded and responses were transcribed verbatim and translated from Spanish to English. Thematic analysis using HyperRESEARCH qualitative analysis software version 4.5.0. was conducted to identify major themes. Results: The mean age of the 96 participants surveyed was 40.4 years and the majority were women, married or in Union, and have children. Women reported a significantly lower individual and family health score than men. The most rural village included in the study had significantly lower family health scores than the three sub-urban villages in the study. Among the personal health problems reported by participants, alcohol consumption, dental problems, and malnutrition were significant predictors of lower individual health scores. Themes that emerged from the interview analysis included the greatest community health needs, perceived negative community health behaviors, barriers to health care access, HOL’s impact, and suggestions for community health promotion.   Conclusion: The results of this study reveal many unmet health needs and barriers to healthcare that Guatemalan village communities face. Community-based participatory research using a mixed approach voices communities’ perspective on their perceived needs and is an important tool to guide non-profit aid and intervention serving impoverished communities.

  • Preparing Christian Health Workers for International Work: Evaluating a
           Short Global Health Course

    • Authors: Sneha Kirubakaran, Douglas Shaw, Lawrie McArthur, Angus Miller, Anthony Radford
      Pages: 21 - 30
      Abstract: Improving global health education to ensure health professionals are prepared and competent in the world’s increasingly interconnected health-scape is a vital need.  For many health professionals, global health education is facilitated through short, pre-departure courses in cross-cultural health and development work.  There is currently limited literature on both the availability and the effectiveness of such courses.  Our research aim was to explore the impact of a short course in global health education, designed and delivered by an Australian not-for-profit organisation, Intermed SA (Intermed).  We conducted a short online survey of Intermed graduates, followed by semi-structured interviews with selected participants.  The results indicate that Intermed’s International Health and Development course was effective in achieving the course objectives as assessed by graduates, whilst also having a positive practical impact on the graduates’ professional development.

  • Effectiveness of Community Health Worker Delivered Interventions on
           Non-communicable Disease Risk and Health Outcomes in India: A Systematic
           Review

    • Authors: Alexander Miles, Matthew J Reeve, Nathan Grills
      Pages: 31 - 51
      Abstract: Background and Aims: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) account for 61% of deaths in India. This review focuses on Community Health Workers’ (CHW) effectiveness in preventing and managing NCDs in India which could help direct future research and government policy. Methods: A search of PubMed, Ovid, Embase and CINAHL using terms related to “community health workers” and “India” was used to find articles that quantitatively measured the effect of CHW delivered interventions on NCD risk and health outcomes. Results: CHW interventions are associated with improved health outcomes, metabolic parameters, and lifestyle risk factors in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and oral cancer. Current literature on CHW interventions for NCDs in India is limited in number of studies and the scope of NCDs covered. Conclusion: There is weak to moderate evidence that CHWs can improve NCD health outcomes in India.

  • African Pentecostalism and the 1918 Influenza Pandemic: The Supernatural
           Amid the Fearful and Implications for the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Authors: Omololu Fagunwa
      Pages: 52 - 64
      Abstract: Infectious outbreaks that lead to epidemics and pandemics are dreaded because of the adverse health, economic, and social effects. The 1918 pandemic caused by the H1N1 influenza virus killed 40 million people worldwide. Like the case of COVID-19, the pandemic of 1918 kept Christians, as well as people of other faiths, from worshipping together. However, African indigenous Pentecostal movements and groups emerged in various part of the continent around the same time. This period was the time of huge Pneumatic experience and spiritual awakening.  The Pentecostals devoted themselves to building their faith and ceaseless prayer during that time, and this has become the foundation of the doctrine and theological instructions of most African Initiated Churches. Because are no studies that consider the 1918 flu pandemic and Pentecostal response in Africa, this study was undertaken. The time of the 1918 pandemic appeared to be a good opportunity for spiritual awakening. Intense prayer prevailed during those times and teaching and exposition about prayer formed the core of the theology of most African Initiated Churches. Pandemics often bring devastation but could also be an opportunity for spiritual awakening through prayer, love in action, social justice, compassion and care.

  • The Changing Landscape of Mission Medicine and Hospitals in Sub-Saharan
           Africa

    • Authors: Samuel Adu-Gyamfi, Mariama Marciana Kuusaana, Benjamin Dompreh Darkwa, Lucky Tomdi
      Pages: 65 - 81
      Abstract: Missions have played numerous developmental roles towards the achievement of economic and social advancement including the provision of healthcare.  From their entry into Africa, they have employed numerous methods in order to introduce their Christian faith.  The construction of schools and hospitals, engagement in public health campaigns, provision of relevant services for the poor, and spearheading the provision of formal education, among others, have been the most effective mechanisms.  The activities of missionaries have taken different dimensions as their scope continues to change over time.  Nevertheless, existing literature shows little data on the changing landscape of mission medicine and hospitals in Africa.  Using a systematic literature review approach, the current study discusses the changing landscape of mission medicine and hospitals in Sub-Saharan Africa.  This contribution dwells partly on the missionary theory of medical practice to define most of the services of these faith-based organization (FBOs) in Africa.  Findings from the study have revealed that mission hospitals have established schools and training schemes that allow them to train medical personnel to complement the limited number of health personnel on the continent.  In the twenty-first century, they have contributed to achieving the targets of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially aspects that focus on health.  It is evident that while the focus, methods, and partnerships have changed, missions in healthcare have not diverted their attention from sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • The Population Health Model: A Timely Approach for Mission Hospitals

    • Authors: Richard Thomas, Niels French
      Pages: 82 - 88
      Abstract: Mission hospitals have long provided a source of care, healing, and spiritual support for populations around the world, often serving the disadvantaged and rural residents not served by other facilities. Yet the future of mission hospitals has been thrown into doubt, and options for repurposing these institutions must be explored. The approach of mission hospitals to healthcare delivery has historically differed from those of other health systems (including many faith-based facilities) due to their isolated locations in lower-income countries. The multi-purpose attributes of mission hospitals make them excellent candidates for adopting a population health approach. The population health model, as now being developed in the United States, represents a radical departure from traditional clinical practice and reduces the system’s dependence on clinical care as a means to improving community health. The population health model emphasizes treatment of populations rather than individuals, a holistic approach to the provision of care (addressing social determinants in the process), and the involvement of the community in multi-sector collaboration for collective impact. Mainstream hospitals have had difficulty in implementing a true population health model for a variety of reasons, but mission hospitals appear to represent an effective vehicle for putting this model into practice. A population health approach appears to complement the philosophy of mission hospitals, and mission hospitals appear positioned to advance the population health movement.

  • How Christian Pharmacists can Maximize their Potentials in Healthcare
           Delivery: Adapting to the Prayer, Faith and Action Model

    • Authors: Melody Okereke, Kenneth Bitrus David, Ezeofor Ozioma Onyedikachukwu
      Pages: 89 - 93
      Abstract: In the absence of scientific breakthrough, patients search for solutions beyond science in the quest for good health.  This is because spirituality greatly influences therapeutic outcomes and healthcare delivery.  Healthcare providers must confront the dual needs of their patients; spiritual and health.  Christian pharmacists can have an integral role to play in addressing these needs by means of a specialized focus on Christian faith.  In this paper, we propose a Prayer, Faith, and Action Model for pharmacists who desire faith-based healthcare delivery in their professional settings.  This model is worth adopting if Christian pharmacists want to maximize their potential in the course of healthcare delivery.

  • Utilizing Technology during the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Authors: Daryn Joy Go, Natalee Hung, Hannah Ferrolino, Kendall Wilson, Mia Choi, Daniel Mayhugh, Lincoln Lau
      Pages: 94 - 98
      Abstract: National lockdowns and social distancing measures enforced in response to COVID-19 have forced many non-governmental organizations (NGOs) serving in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to suspend their operations. While low-income families continue to suffer from hunger and poverty, community quarantine restrictions additionally isolated them from town centers where healthcare, education, food, supplies, and livelihood opportunities are usually accessed. International Care Ministries (ICM) is a Philippine-based NGO that runs a poverty-alleviation program targeted towards extreme low-income households. As we re-evaluated how we may continue to effectively minister and serve our communities despite lockdown measures, we identified two priorities: (1) to serve people’s physical needs by providing food and access to healthcare, and (2) to serve people’s spiritual needs through spiritual feeding and community. In this field report, we describe how ICM was able to identify and use social network platforms as an alternative to continue both service delivery and spiritual feeding remotely. We hope this example may encourage other development NGOs to persevere as we all continue to seek ways to adapt to these extraordinary and seemingly ever-changing circumstances.
