Challenges jamaica nurses conf oct 07

  • 1. Challenges for our health The Nurses Association of Jamaica (U K) 20th October 2007 Cashain David Ujima Health & Social Care
  • 2. People of visible African ancestry across the globe share a common destiny of experiencing discrimination resulting in inadequate health
  • 3. Images from the Diaspora Diaspora is a biblical concept traditionally employed to describe the forced dispersion of Jews amongst the Gentiles
  • 4. South Africa or Mexico ?
  • 5. St Croix or Comunbia ?
  • 6. Ecuador or South Af rica ?
  • 12. A repeating pattern Black Americans are still more likely to be poorer than whites Black people in UK live in the poorest areas Afro-Ecuadorians live in dire poverty Brazil s Black populations concentrated in largely urban areas (Favelas)
  • 13. But what about the youth/children ?
  • 14. The threat to children and children s (health) is not video violence, but lack of culture among role models in society Bengt Gorransson, Swedish Minister for Culture, 1982
  • 15. Being amongst the the most vulnerable members of societ y, children are dependant on adults for their cultural orientation and role models and for their health awareness and care.
  • 16. Health determinants Genetics Environment Lifestyle Service provision Challenge notions about inferiority Change approach to make impact on causes Support insight and abilit y to choose Community knowledge to improv e access and experience
  • 17. So what can we do ?
  • 18. If you want your eggs to hatch, sit on them yourself. Haitian proverb
  • 19. 12 pointers to health Black life Clinicians / Practitioners Commissioning / planning Parents and members of the community Haki Madhabuti
  • 20. 1. Self Knowledge The Ethiopian's say, a cat may go to a monastery, but she still remains a cat The more a person understands his or her mind and body, the less they will try to destroy it.
  • 21. 2. Be family orientated Every individual needs loving people in his or her life. People are shaped by other people and culture. We learn self- love and self-worth in functional families.
  • 22. 3. Engage in Community life The major function of a working community is to make the lives of all it s residents liveable and enjoyable. Like the trees of the forest; when a community fails the residents are in trouble.
  • 23. 4. Avoid Stress Most people worry too much about things that they cannot change. Slow down. Seek quality rather than quantity
  • 24. 5. Develop critical thinking It has become easier to believe than think. people who think critically about the world are doers, problem solvers. They are always looking for better answers.
  • 25. 6. Exercise discipline Knowing when to say no and knowing ones own limitations is critical to self-discipline. Part of the discipline process is to separate desires from needs and prioritise ones life
  • 26. 7. Personal health plan Mind and body are connected; each person must have a program that wi ll keep him or her healthy. Walk when possible, cycle, s wim, visit the gym, eat with moderation
  • 27. 8. Spiritual search Always seek the answers to the reasons for life. The religion one practices is not as important as the practice itself. Study all spiritual paths.
  • 28. 9. Cultural Interaction Become more involved in our cultural celebrations. Kwaanza (Dec 26th - Jan 1st), Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey birthday celebrations. The major point is that all people, i f they are to be themselves, must be surrounded and submersed in one s own culture.
  • 29. 10. Self reliance and ambition Become more self-reliant in economics, politics and education. Prepare your children to start, operate and succeed in their own businesses.
  • 30. 11. Be Creative Enjoy life and do what brings you happiness. If you do not have a hobby or art in which you partake, think about learning something new.
  • 31. 12. Adapting to Change The world is a far different world than it was 100, 50 or 30 yrs ago. Learn to be adaptabl e to change, to see change coming and initiate change.
