Touching Hearts in Tibet

China

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Tibet has a high congenital heart disease rate of around 7%, its cause due to a range of different factors. While operation is considered a standard and effective medical solution to congenital heart disease, hospitals in Tibet are generally not equipped nor staffed for the procedure. Rather, timely diagnosis and treatment can greatly improve children’s survival rate and live a healthy life by beating the odds of congenital heart disease, a leading cause of birth defect-related deaths.

To address this identified need, ZeShan Foundation and Si Yuan Foundation pooled funds to support the “Touching Hearts in Tibet” project. This humanitarian effort included the purchase and installation of a Bi-plane Catheterization laboratory and the construction of a 16-bed paediatric intensive care at the Tibetan People’s Hospital in Lhasa, both the first of its kind at this institution. In the first phase of the project, five Tibetan doctors received training from volunteer doctors from China, Singapore, Malaysia and the United States, whose time and expertise have contributed to the saving of many children’s lives at the facility since the project’s inception. The government contributed $800,000 to put the facility in full operation, which now allows every child up to the age of 18 with congenital heart disease in Tibet to receive free heart care at this institution.

When an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit…Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

When an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

US-DPRK Tuberculosis Project

Stanford University & Christian Friends of Korea

ZeShan joined its sister foundation, Seeds Foundation, in supporting a partnership between Stanford University and Christian Friends of Korea in their effort towards capacity development in public health through the US-DPRK Tuberculosis Project, which was executed in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Initiated in 2008, the project was developed to promote opportunities for professional and academic engagement with North Korea, specifically with a focus on mutual interests in tuberculosis control. The project mobilized financial, technical, and volunteer resources from private donors, the Global Health & Security Initiative of the Nuclear Threat Initiative, WHO/DPRK joint planning, and many DPRK Ministry of Public Health staffers. ZeShan and Seeds’ donation helped underwrite associated expenses for the renovation and fitting of DPRK’s national TB monitoring and diagnosis centre. The success of the project was an instructive example of how international NGOs and government agencies overcame systemic obstacles and political mistrust for the good of the ordinary citizens.

First Tele-health Link

Senior Citizen Home Safety Association, Hong Kong

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

From 2008 to 2011, ZeShan Foundation provided support to aid the development of a new Tele-health Link program by the Senior Citizen Home Safety Association (SCHSA), which aimed to provide a range of telephone and electronic health services to SCHSA’s elderly members in Hong Kong East and Kowloon East. The program was a key example of community-based elderly health services that enables ageing in place, showcasing effective cross-sector collaboration between the public health and non-governmental social services sectors as well as innovative use of technology.

Post-discharge Tele-health Advice, Health Advice Hotline

In collaboration with the Hospital Authority, a hotline was set up to disseminate health advice to the elderly community and their carers in the hopes of enabling active ageing and reduce hospitalization of the elderly. Manned by registered nurses, calls were also made to elderly members who were recently discharged from hospitals to monitor their progress of recovery, remind them to take their medications, and follow up on other related matters. More than 330,000 of such calls were made over three years.

This project also received matched funding from the Partnerships Fund for the Disadvantaged to expand its service from a localised to city-wide operation. To evaluate the effectiveness of the program, a study was conducted by the Sau Po Center on Ageing of the University of Hong Kong in March 2011, showing very satisfactory feedback from users. 

24-hour Transmission of electronic Patient Record (ePR)

An IT system was established to facilitate the transmission of electronic medical records to hospital emergency wards, which allowed doctors and nurses to access the medical records of SCHSA members and enabled a more efficient medical intervention. The project won a Gold ICT Award in a government competition for its innovative use of information technology.

Training of Chinese Pediatricians

British Columbia Children’s Hospital & Children’s Hospital of Fudan University

From 2007 to 2009, ZeShan Foundation supported a paediatrician training program implemented by the British Columbia Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, Canada and the Children’s Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai.  The program was targeted towards junior and mid-ranking paediatricians in China, and offered 22 doctors the opportunity to receive advanced training in infectious diseases and emergency medicine in Canada.

Over the duration of their 6-month program in Canada, trainees were exposed to a spectrum of challenges faced by North American children’s hospital and were provided with hands-on learning opportunities to develop their skills at various capacities, including clinical service in inpatient wards, outpatient clinics, and research.  Upon the trainee’s return to their sending institutions in China, they applied their newly acquired skills and knowledge through the implementation of learned teaching methods and clinical practices.  A mentorship program has been put in place for Canadian trainers to work with their trainees to conduct environmental evaluations of the latter’s institution, and to assess the needs and necessary changes in the institution, as well as negotiate with senior administrators in support of trainee’s plans when appropriate.

Improving Neonatal Care in China

Children’s Medical Foundation, China

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

In 2005, ZeShan funded a multi-year initiative by The Children’s Medical Foundation (CMF) with the aim to lower neonatal mortality rates and improve the quality of neonatal care in China. The goal of the initiative was to establish neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in five underprivileged areas in Zhejiang Province, as well as provide training to doctors and nurses. With subsequent funding from like-minded donors, CMF helped establish 15 more NICUs at various regions in China.

In April 2009, ZeShan sponsored a conference in Shanghai, bringing together representatives of 20 NICUs to share experiences and insights on neonatal care. 41 medical professionals attended the conference, including representatives from the National Center for Women and Children’s Health, heads of neonatology and members of CMF’s China Medical Advisory Board, and Professor Gui Yonghao, Vice President of Fudan University and President of the paediatrics division under the Chinese Medical Association.

This 2-day event saw the establishment of a professional network to facilitate further sharing and training for the CMF program participants on a regular basis. In addition to keynote presentations, group discussions were held, addressing issues such as the challenges of neonatal care in different parts of China and possible solutions to these problems, as well as the development of a national neonatal resuscitation program.

To add image of service leaflet on old website

In view of the increasing number of patients visiting psychiatric outpatient clinics, which according to the Hospital Authority, had risen by more than 20% from 511,101 in 2001/2002 to 628,175 in 2007/2008, as well as a lack of support to families with mentally-ill members, ZeShan supported the establishment of a call center that provides services to people with mental illness and their families, one of the first kind in Hong Kong in 2000’s.

Managed by Richmond Fellowship of Hong Kong, JUSTONE Mental Health Support Service offers professional support to recovered mentally-ill patients, as well as caregivers of family members with mental illness. Emotional support and service referrals are also available to the general public.  Registered social workers offer support and conduct case follow-up to callers, and qualified trained volunteers help answer calls.  ZeShan has also helped the 24-hour hotline project applied for matching-fund from the Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged to expand its services as to benefit more users.
