Pluhař, Filip ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Kotherová, Zuzana (referee)
The aim of the thesis is to find and describe important moments that led to the enforcement of the psychiatric care reform. This reform was adopted 24 years after the fall of the communism. Until then, all attempts to change the psychiatric care system had failed. This healthcare segment has long been underfinanced and mainly institutional care prevails. Often, aftercare is not ensured, so it is very difficult for a person who is released from care to be involved in normal life. Also, stigmatization of people with mental illness prevails. Here, reform represents a solution to these and many other problems that the current psychiatry has. This research should answer the question why this strategy was successfully enforced and what was behind it. Using the theory of three currents and interviews with important actors, it discusses the various events and circumstances which have been used by the policy promoters to successfully achieve the approval of the reform. It examines the different motives of actors, their function and roles in the creation and promotion of the reform. The causes of enforcement are sought both in the Ministry of Health itself and in the EU or interest organizations outside the traditional institutions. The thesis can answer the question whether in this case it was the usual...

Šenková, Eva ; Angelovská, Olga (advisor) ; Kotherová, Zuzana (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on the relation of gender and health. Attitudes and behavioral manifestations associated with the male or female roles of individual personalities in society are one of the factors that affect human health and the length of life. The thesis maps the situation in the Czech Republic - whether there is a policy aimed at reducing gender inequalities in the use of health services, and whether differences between women and men in needs and in attitudes to their health are reflected. The thesis is based on the theory of implementation focusing on the identification of barriers to successful implementation, the concept of health determinants and gender mainstreaming. Qualitative and quantitative research methods were applied. The primary data was collected through both expert interviews and written comments of experts. Among the secondary data, strategic public policy documents and published statistics were key. It has been found that the Czech Republic adopted strategic goals in relation to gender inequalities, but there is no adequate action to achieve them. Several barriers have also been identified that can make it difficult or impossible to meet those strategic goals. These barriers were divided into two main groups: subjective and objective barriers.

Preventive politics of children's mental health problems in schools
Dománková, Hana ; Tušková, Eva (advisor) ; Kotherová, Zuzana (referee)
This diploma thesis focuses on prevention and promotion in children's mental health on primary schools. Through mixed research design it explores institutional setting and current state of implementation of preventive and promoting activities at schools. It also gives a few "good practice" examples from other countries. The theoretical basis is drawn from public policy and health policy concepts - from public policy there is used the policy cycle framework, the governance concept and street-level bureaucracy theory. From health policy, this thesis uses the public health concept and primary prevention. The results show that meanwhile the issue of children's mental health prevention and promotion is taken very seriously on international level of governance and similar attitude was shown in schools themselves when questioned, the situation is different on the national level of governance. In particular, there is no explicit policy targeting this issue which leads to many inhomogeneous, fragmented activities on street-level (in schools) which then makes it very hard to evaluate, whether they have or have not the desired impact on children's mental health.
