Abstract : Social health insurance (SHI) schemes are adequate method to achieve universal health coverage and protecting the population from financial problem related healthcare by reducing the out-of pocket payment. This study aimed to evaluate willingness to pay for SHI and their related factors to join the SHI among population particularly in Yogyakarta province, Indonesia. A cross‑sectional study design using contingent valuation method was employed. Participants were recruited from four districts in Yogyakarta province, during time period of January to March 2019. Participants’ mean willingness to pay (WTP) and barriers of WTP were explored. Sociodemographics predictors of WTP were identified using logistic regression analysis. A total of 625 participants were participated in this study. Majority of respondents (87.36%) were willing to pay for SHI at the current regulated package. The average of participants willing to pay for SHI was about 1.67% of their monthly salary. However, most of participants (67.58%) did not willing to enroll for SHI with copayment. Provision of quality of health services and wide range of benefit packages influenced the willingness to pay. Lack of money to pay and health is not a priority were the major barriers of willingness to pay among the population. The result of this study revealed the positive correlation between family size, income, educational level, past experience of hospitalization and current health status with the willingness to pay for SHI. The government should pay attention to the co-payment level and improve the quality of care of the SHI scheme.

Abstract : Familial hypercholesterolemia is an autosomal dominant disorder that is associated with tendon xanthoma, increased plasma LDL-C level and subsequent risk to develop premature cardiovascular disease. The aim of this review is to present a brief summary about clinical, biochemical and molecular aspects of familial hyperchoelstroelmia. It is mainly caused by mutations in the LDLR gene which is the most frequent cause for this disease followed by mutations in the APOB-100 gene and rarely by mutations in the PCSK9 gene. Few international criteria were established for the clinical diagnosis of FH that depend on the positive family history of premature heart disease and /or hyperlipidemia, plus the high low density lipoprotein level, however molecular detection of the causative gene mutation is still needed to confirm the diagnosis of familial hypercholesterolemia. Traditional cardiovascular risk factors are still contributing to cardiovascular disease among patients with this hereditary disease, for that reason the earlier diagnosis plus cascade family screening programs are essential, so that patients can start to change to a healthier lifestyle, even starting hypolipidemic therapy to reduce the risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease among familial hypercholestrolemic patients.

Abstract : There is little research on effective ways of stopping bullying in healthcare. The aim of the study was to evaluate how work experiences influence perceptions of bullying. We studied bullying a group of non-training grade doctors in an NHS hospital using a questionnaire. Levels of agreement or disagreement were rated using a 5-point Likert scale with 1 indicating low and 5 high agreements. 25/28 responded. Appropriate introduction to ward (r =.697 p=0.000), enough time to settle (r=.856 p=0.000), friendly co-workers (r=.754 p=0.000) and providing a good environment (r=.699 p=0.000) were strong correlates to not feeling bullied. Negative correlations were induction doing little to help settle in job (r=-.439 p=0.032) and feeling overwhelmed by workload (r=-.510 p=0.010). Not being bullied correlated strongly with recommending the hospital (r=.754 p=0.000). This study provides insight into employment experiences that relate to bullying and may suggest opportunities to reduce bullying.

Abstract : Children with thalassemia major generally experience growth retardation and metabolic disorders. Stunting is a common feature of children and adolescents with thalassemia. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with the incidence of stunting, yet high levels of ferritin due to multiple blood transfusions and the chelation therapy also have an impact on the incidence of stunting. This study aims at determining the association between vitamin D levels, ferritin and nutritional intake with the height of stunted children with thalassemia major. This cross-sectional study involved 84 thalassemia major children aged 4-14 years taken through consecutive sampling. Among these children with thalassemia major, 34% were stunted children and 42% were severely stunted. Most had ferritin levels of 1000 mg/dL (94.1%) and only 4 children (4.8%) had vitamin D insufficiency. The average energy intake was 1538.7 Kcal/day (70.1% of requirement), protein 45.5 g/day (54.9% of requirement), fat 69.4 g/day (78.6% of requirement), carbohydrate 204.8 g/day (68.1% of requirement), and vitamin D 2.4 µg/day (15.7% of requirement). Based on the Spearman Rank correlation test, there was no significant association between vitamin D and ferritin levels with height for age (p> 0.025), while energy and fat intake were significant association with height for age (p <0.025).

Abstract : Propolis is a promising natural product that have been widely studied and investigated for health and medical benefits. It appears as a sticky, greenish-brown compound found on the trees and evergreens formed by the sap, bee discharges and bees wax. Propolis is used to line the beehives. The high content of flavonoids in propolis has contributed tremendously to the traditional use of propolis for many illnesses. The variation in chemical and biological composition is due to the type of propolis and locations of the source. Various methods have been used for propolis optimization based on its chemical and biological properties. The side effects of chemical drugs and toxicity is one of the reasons a natural product like propolis is gaining popularity to treat various medical conditions. Propolis has been investigated for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-tumor, antidiabetic, and as a treatment for allergy, bronchial asthma and gastric disorders. The promising results from these research areas have paved the way to characterize propolis and elucidate the pathways to explain its mechanism of action. This review will highlight propolis production, its chemical and biological composition and its main biological functions; with a special focus on propolis as a wound healing agent.
