6.1 Medical appropriateness of injection use

To investigate whether the reasons for giving injections were medically sound, several indicators were formulated. Here, two levels of analysis are used: actual injection use and hypothetical preferences for injection therapy in tracer conditions26, for which - from a medical rationale - injections are not an appropriate form of therapy. The same tracer conditions were used in the study of actual illness episodes and in hypothetical cases. Data was gathered in household surveys, in-depth interviews (Uganda) or focus group discussions (Indonesia). In Chapter 6.1.1, the results will be presented of injection use in actual illness episodes in which tracer conditions were present. Results from the focus group discussions and the interviews regarding injection preferences in tracer conditions will be discussed in Chapter 6.1.2. Chapter 6.1.3 discusses the popularity of specific medicines in the selected tracer conditions.

26The selection of the tracer conditions, the strengths and limitations of this method, and the problems encountered during the analysis of the data, are discussed in Chapter 2.4. For an overview of the selected tracer conditions, see Table 1.
