Ref.: (LML) Early detection is the critical part
From: Umerov Zhaudat, Moscow, Russia
I would like to react to the LML message of Geeske Zijp. When there are funds, employees, but there is no motivation to support the most vulnerable the result is unfortunate. Motivation is most likely a consequence, not a cause. The reasons can be many.
The most important reason, in my opinion, is the safety of life in the regions where our patients live. According to reports, team members on the survey and provision of medical care might be the target of armed groups not subordinates to the government. This reason can be solved only together with the security service of the government.
The next important step is to appoint a team leader. A "weak" leader (without motivation) will not have motivated employees. You can invite "strong" leaders from other team for a short time in the "weak" team.
The next reason is the lack of attention to these employees. Probably, rewarding with diplomas, participation in television programs etc. of popular medical workers will help to awaken motivation of other workers.
There are many different ways to improve the organization of service in addition to the above. Use the experience of the staff of the Regional WHO office for the fight against leprosy. Good luck. Remember-there are no unresolvable problems.
