Abstract

Non-governmental health care providers in the Free State have traditionally provided long-term hospitalisation services for TB patients. This history now appears to have come to a halt. This paper documents the opinions of a purposive selection of public health workers and managers with regard to TB-related hospitalisation. The views and experiences of health workers and managers at the district, provincial and national levels were recorded by means of self-administered questionnaires and personal interviews over the period 2001-2003. In the Free State this period was characterised by a range of intricate problems. Indications are, however, that public district hospitals are capable of dealing with the burden caused by the sequential closure of the former Allanridge Chest and Santoord hospitals. End

<b>Hospitalisasie vir tuberkulosebehandeling in die Vrystaat : standpunte van gesondheidswerkers en -bestuurders</b> <br>Tradisioneel het nieregeringsverskaffers van gesondheidsdienste in die Vrystaat langtermynhospitaaldienste vir tuberkulosepasiƫnte gelewer. Klaarblyklik het hierdie geskiedenis nou tot 'n einde gekom. Hierdie artikel dokumenteer 'n groep doelmatiggeselekteerde gesondheidswerkers en -bestuurders se standpunte oor hospitalisasie vir tuberkulose. Gedurende die tydperk 2001-2003 is die menings en ervarings van gesondheidswerkers en -bestuurders op distrik, provinsiale en nasionale vlak deur middel van selfgeadministreerde vraelyste en persoonlike onderhoudvoering aangeteken. In die Vrystaat is hierdie periode deur ingewikkelde probleme gekenmerk. Daar is egter aanduidings dat openbare distrikshospitale in staat is om die las op te neem wat deur die opeenvolgende sluiting van die voormalige Allanridge Chest and Santoord hospitale ontstaan het.
