• HEALTH CARE in LITHUANIA

    Health Care in Lithuania from "International Health Care Systems". In the late 1990s, Lithuania moved away from a system funded mainly by local and state budgets to a mixed system, predominantly funded by the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) through a national health insurance scheme and based on compulsory participation. The state health-care system is intended to serve the entire population, and the Health Insurance Law requires all permanent residents and legally employed non-permanent residents to participate in the compulsory health insurance scheme (typically paying 6–9% of taxable income). Over the last 2 decades after regaining independence, Lithuania entered a new era with many opportunities for radical improvements; nevertheless, the population of the country has been expose...

Health is a human right. Improving people’s health brings economic, social and cultural benefits throughout society.

  • The Power of Hug | Jurgita Jurkute | TEDxVilnius

    According to the data of the National Center of Mental Health, approximately 1000 people in Lithuania country commit a suicide every year. That makes it one of the highest risk (in committing suicides) countries not only in Europe, but in the entire world. Suicidologists state that about 10 people in the closest circle of a person who committed suicide experience emotional and psychological trauma. Jurgita was unfortunate to experience 2 of her closest people end life this way. After breaking the silence, Jurgita is speaking up for people of her fate and challenges the silence that often follows a suicide in the family. She believes that understanding of these feelings instead of hiding them can help to reduce Lithuania's troublingly high suicide rate. What is the way out? For the last...

It's doubled in the last 10 years, overtaking former record holders such as Hungary, and leaving other Baltic States behind. Looking at the economic figures, the country is doing very well - over 5% GNP growth - the capital, Vilnius, has become smart and chic, the country has reclaimed its language and culture since independence. But suicide indicates the hidden truth: that the transition from soviet times to the first phase of capitalism is proving deeply traumatic.

The state health-care system is intended to serve the entire population, and the Health Insurance Law requires all permanent residents and legally employed non-permanent residents to participate in the compulsory health insurance scheme (typically paying 6–9% of taxable income). Over the last 2 decades after regaining independence, Lithuania entered a new era with many opportunities for radical improvements; nevertheless, the population of the country has been exposed to the new and unfamiliar social environment, and consequently, experienced tremendous stress. The first decade of independence was the period of major socioeconomic changes, and it was expected that society would gradually enter a more stable stage of development. However, the second decade was marked by an economic crisis and continuing reforms in health system and related areas. Mortality is one of the major indicators reflecting the changes in health outcomes. Several studies carried out in Lithuania have analysed trends in mortality from major causes: they provided average annual changes assuming that rates increase or decrease at a constant rate over time, and some identified the calendar years in which changes occurred. (Country report – August 2014. Report by Rimvydas Slapikas, FESC et al. Prepared for the EAPC “Country of the Month” initiative. Link see in comments.) Professor Armen Astvatsatryan, MD, PhD, ScD, FESC is a founder and a first dean of Faculty of Public Health of European Regional Educational Academy. He has known by his lectures in different Public Health domains, especially “Basics of Public Health”, “International Health Care” and “Medical Ethics”.

She believes that understanding of these feelings instead of hiding them can help to reduce Lithuania's troublingly high suicide rate. What is the way out? For the last decade Jurgita has been a well-known television presenter, actor and recently a social activist. She uses her popularity in Lithuania to talk about issues related to the suicides and openly shares her personal feelings. Jurgita has a degree in Acting from Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater and a degree in Social Work from Vilnius University. Jurgita Jurkute campaigns to encourage the women in Lithuania to achieve for emotional and personal growth through higher self esteem. She advocates for a necessity to find time for personal needs and be open to the help of others. Jurgita has joined minds and hands with the likeminded people to create a social space for women called Trys seserys (Three Sisters), a second-hand boutique that puts its profits towards the seminars with professionals meant to empower women. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Reporter: Justin Webster Producer/Cameraman: Ivan O'Mahoney On the threshold of joining the EU and NATO, Lithuania has the highest suicide rate in the world. It's doubled in the last 10 years, overtaking former record holders such as Hungary, and leaving other Baltic States behind. Looking at the economic figures, the country is doing very well - over 5% GNP growth - the capital, Vilnius, has become smart and chic, the country has reclaimed its language and culture since independence. But suicide indicates the hidden truth: that the transition from soviet times to the first phase of capitalism is proving deeply traumatic. At night on patrol with police we see how they rush to save a 20 year old man from trying to kill himself by jumping off a bridge in the centre of Vilnius - a popular location for suicide attempts. At the police station we talk to the man, Evaldas Kric, and to the doctor who arrives to see him. This is the second night in a row he has tried to commit suicide. The previous night he was taken to hospital, but was discharged immediately. Dr Dainius Puras, a leading psychiatrist, and co-author of Lithuania's emergency suicide bill, describes the state of suicide in Lithuania: "It's an epidemic," he says. If it wasn't suicide, but an infectious disease that was killing over 1500 people a year (30 a week, in a population of only 3.7m), the government would spend millions, he says. As it is, the suicide bill has been shelved. "There is a lot of cynical thinking in Eastern block countries. That it is maybe better to let the weak die," says Dr. Puras. Dr. Kristina Ona Polukordiene, director of the leading psychological helpline in Vilnius blames the sensationalist coverage of suicide in the Lithuanian press for confusing the issues and even increasing the suicide rate. On the other hand, officially the "epidemic" has only just been recognised - even though official figures showing the extremely high rates have been available for several years. The deputy health minister, Vidmantas Zilinskas tells us: "Most of our specialists didn't believe the numbers. Now they realise it is true, and we are starting to do something about it." But the old state system is slow to react, so far preferring to spend money on drugs than on the social measures Puras and others say are needed. In the countryside, where the rates are twice as high, we visit the adoptive family of a 17 year old, Marius, who hanged himself in the village graveyard. We talk to his classmates in the local school to witness the emotional impact that suicide leaves in its wake, and to understand why suicide has risen fast amongst the young. At the other extreme in Vilnius, a young and successful TV executive tells us how some make it on to "the fast-moving train", and some don't. Joining the EU should be a source of optimism - but in the short term at least for many it is a threat: the EU is forcing the closure of the huge nuclear plant at Visaginas, twice the size of Chernobyl. Layoffs amongst the 4,500 workers have already started. The plant's General Director tells us that no money has been set aside to deal with the social effects, which are already being felt in the depressed town built for the nuclear workers. Unless the EU helps Lithuania take notice of its own mental health problems there will be a lot of "sad and angry people", a problem not only of health, argues Puras, but of European security. We go to the psychiatric hospital where 20 year old Evaldas Kric was taken. We find out he has been discharged - an example of how thin the resources for treating suicide cases are. Evaldas Kric is one of many living on the edge in the new Europe. Credit: http://www.insightnewstv.com/d74/
