Srengthening Local Health Governance

The idea to try out the Social Audit (SA) as tool to look at the state of local health sector governance was agreed among the participants in the training series workshops. This was justified as easier to test and conduct within the varying community set ups. Furthermore, in comparison to the other tools of social accountability, the CSOs agreed that SA was more effective and less technical, providing a more appropriate learning tool. While there would be mistakes in the first exercise(s), it was generally agreed that this step would lay the foundation for more engagements through SA by the local organizations. The process of generating evidence using SA was said to be less complicated yet convincing. Furthermore, the low-cost implication of conducting SA was said to be manageable compared to other tools.

Bosnien und Herzegowina -
 Situationsbeschreibung

Geteilter Staat - auch in der Corona-Krise

Wie geht Bosnien und Herzegowina mit der Corona-Krise um? Eine gemeinsame Bekämpfung von Covid-19 erfolgte nicht. Auch jetzt entscheidet jeder für sich - ein Gremium für das gesamte Land wurde nicht gebildet. Eine Abstimmung von Maßnahmen war nicht wahrnehmbar. Die Zahlen der Betroffenen blieben zum Glück gering. 152 Personen sind in Bosnien und Herzegowina an Covid-19 verstorben, fast 2.000 Personen sind genesen, die Zahl der Infizierten liegt unter 3.000. Die Zahlen der Neuinfizierten sind sehr gering.

COVID-19 crisis exposes U.S. vulnerabilities in its supply chain

Is globalization still the model for the United States?

In this election year in the United States one is reminded of President Trump’s iconic slogan of his 2016 election campaign, “Make America Great Again.” He promised he would bring well-paid manufacturing jobs back to the U.S., increase U.S. exports and reduce the American trade deficit. COVID-19 has confronted his efforts with the highest unemployment levels in America since the Great Depression in the 1930’s. This serious dilemma has renewed a sense of urgency to create more manufacturing jobs in America and to become less reliant on outside sources for critical goods.
