Considering  the above problems, the Development of INA-HRQoL model was carried out by referring to the Health Utility Index and EuroQol-5-Dimension.
Methods: Started with the validity and reliability of INA-HRQoL which was continued to the measurement of the Utility, Time Preference and QALY’s on 232 respondents using treatment for the infectious disease (TBC) and 261 respondents using the treatment for the non infectious disease (Hypertension) at Cipto Mangunkusumo National General Hospital.
Results: Using T test (T-0,05) there was a significant difference between the TBC and the Hypertension group respondents to the Mobility Attribute (p=0,01); Social Activity (p=0,03); Sight (p=0,00); Hearing (p=0,04); Emotion (p=0,04); and Utility (p=0,00) as a whole. Cost Utility Analysis on the treatment of the infectious disease (TBC) showed the ratio of 4.664 while on the non infectious disease (Hypertension) showed ratio of 4.964.

Conclusion INA-HRQoL only consisted of 10 attributes, 1) .Individual Activity; 2).Sight; 3).Hearing; 4).Communication; 5).Social Activity; 6).Taste Sensory; 7).Speech; 8).Mobility; 9).Pain and 10).Emotion

Abstract

Women's representation in Indonesian politics has entered a new era following the introduction of affirmative action policy through the 2002 Political Party Law and the 2003 Electoral Law which was then expanded and strengthened in the 2008 Electoral Law. The said laws have the potential to improve women's representation in the political sphere by stipulating that each participating political party must include at least 30 per cent (30%) women in its candidate list.  Without a doubt, this affirmative action policy in the form of a gender quota system has brought new hopes for Indonesian women to be meaningfully involved in Indonesia’s political processes. Nevertheless, empirical evidence shows that this is not always the case. Indonesian women have faced significant resistance and challenges not only when they tried to run for election, but also when they performed as legislators in their respective legislative institutions. How can this phenomenon be explained? What sort of resistance and challenges have they faced? How do  they cope with such resistance and challenges? This paper tries to answer these questions by specifically discussing a case study of women legislators in local representative assemblies (DPRD) in Cirebon, West Java, Indonesia.

Abstract

There is a paucity of knowledge in the existing empirical literature regarding the effects of exchange rate, interest rate, inflation rate and GDP fluctuations on the performance of the manufacturing industry in Kenya.  Previous studies on the effects of exchange rate, interest rate, inflation rate and GDP on the performance of a firm have concentrated on the banking industry and the entire stock exchange market. The nature and extent of the effects macro economic factors are unique from one industry to another. This seminar paper therefore seeks to determine the effects of the macroeconomic environment on the financial performance of firms listed in the manufacturing and allied market segment of the Nairobi stock exchange. The research will adopt an explanatory survey research approach and the targeted population would be the nine companies listed in the manufacturing and allied market segment. Secondary data would be obtained from the Nairobi Stock Exchange and the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics. The data collected will be analyzed with the use Microsoft Excel and SPSS version 20. This research would significantly add up to the existing body of empirical literature. The research would therefore be of great help to the corporate managers, shareholders, foreign investors, the government, researchers and academicians in general.
