Peru Extends State Of Emergency In Andean Regions

first_imgBy Dialogo November 08, 2011 The Peruvian government said on November 7 it had issued a 60-day extension of a state of emergency in several towns in the central Andean regions prone to outbursts of political violence. Ayacucho, Cusco, Huancavelica and Junin are home to remnants of the Shining Path guerrilla movement, especially active in Ayacucho in the 1980s before they were beaten back in the mid-1990s. A state of emergency has been in effect in those areas for two years as government forces battle the guerrillas and drug traffickers. A decree published in the official gazette said the extension had been in effect from November 1 in the towns of Huanta and La Mar in the Ayacucho region, and in Tayacaja province in Huancavelica. Districts in the Cusco and Junin regions were also affected. “Conditions persist contrary to domestic law that is affecting the normal development of the population,” the decree read. A separate state of emergency has been in effect since mid-September in parts of the Amazon region, amid strikes and protests by coca growers who complain of “forced eradication” of their crops. The government says the 60-day emergency there aims to “protect the population” from trafficking groups profiting from illegal coca cultivation, and from remnants of the Shining Path. The crackdown comes after the government of President Ollanta Humala vowed to resume a coca eradication program it had earlier suspended.last_img read more

CDC awards funds for new pandemic planning approaches

first_imgSep 25, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) yesterday announced the awarding of $24 million to fund state and local projects aimed at innovative approaches to boost the nation’s readiness for an influenza pandemic.The 1-year grants will fund 55 projects in 29 state and local health departments, according to a CDC press release. The $24 million award pool is part of $600 million in Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Cooperative Agreement funding approved by Congress in 2006.Richard Besser, MD, director of the CDC’s Coordinating Center for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response, said in the statement, “What is learned from these projects can benefit everyone, because it could improve national, regional, and local public health detection and response to a pandemic involving influenza.”The 55 projects were selected from 184 funding applications, the CDC said. Eligibility was limited to 62 state, local, and territorial public health departments that receive funding through PHEP cooperative agreements. Recipients have 1 year from Sep 30 to complete the projects.The recipients’ pandemic preparedness projects focus on seven main areas:Public engagement during public health decision-makingElectronic exchange of laboratory data to improve influenza pandemic monitoringIntegration of state immunization information systems to track countermeasure distributionDevelopment of statewide electronic death reporting systems that are compatible with the Public Health Information NetworkCoordination among healthcare providers to deliver essential servicesInterventions to promote preparedness among vulnerable populationsDistribution of antiviral drugs to people who stay in their homes as a social distancing measureStatewide totals for the awards range from $144,000 for projects in Ohio that address one of the focus areas to more than $2 million for Minnesota efforts that address five of the areas.The CDC said the $24 million is part of $600 million in PHEP supplemental funding that was distributed in three phases beginning in 2006. The agency said the funding focus has been “practical, community-based procedures that could prevent or delay the spread of an influenza pandemic.”Rich Hamburg, director of governmental relations for Trust for America’s Health (TFAH), a nonprofit health advocacy group based in Washington, DC, told CIDRAP News that the projects are appealing because they’re geared toward sharing ideas with a quick research turnaround. “This is a key piece on CDC’s end,” he said.However, Hamburg said the $24 million in grants represents the final installment of pandemic planning support to states and localities from the fiscal year 2006 PHEP funding.”The last of the money is going out the door for state and local pandemic planning. The well has dried up,” he said. Compounding TFAH’s ongoing concern about federal support for pandemic planning is that all-hazards preparedness funding has been shrinking over the past few years, Hamburg added.Of the $7 billion in total pandemic preparedness funding over the past 3 years, about $870 million remains for measures such as vaccine research and development, he said. “But whatever advocacy we do—and vaccines and antivirals are important—we need to talk about other things, too. We need more resources,” Hamburg said.See also:Sep 24 CDC press releaselast_img read more

UK government backs dashboard – but industry must deliver

first_imgSource: Pension Dashboard ProjectExample of state pension information displayed on the pension dashboardRafferty said it had “always been envisaged” that the dashboard would be developed by the private sector and “facilitated” by government through legislation.He added: “Origo is fully committed to getting the pensions dashboard live for consumers. We have been working with the industry in preparation for delivery of a dashboard solution since 2015. In that time Origo has led research, developed and demonstrated prototypes, steered architecture design and conducted successful scalability testing for 15m citizens.”Bob Scott, senior partner at consultancy LCP, argued that the work of Origo and the ABI meant full support from government “isn’t necessarily essential”.“In all likelihood, building on that prototype will enable people to view their state pension forecast alongside valuations of their pension pots from those providers who are willing participants,” he said.However, Scott warned of “difficulties” in obtaining data from providers without sufficient digital records, and in coping with the myriad benefit structures within the UK’s defined benefit sector. Gregg McClymontGregg McClymont, director of policy at The People’s Pension and a former Labour party pensions spokesman, said: “Without the government’s lead on the pensions dashboard, it cannot become the one-stop shop that people need it to be. The state pension and public pensions are unlikely to be included, and unless the dashboard is backed up by legislation, savers won’t be able to see all their pots in one place as many providers simply won’t play ball. The point of it will be lost.”He urged the government to secure the involvement of a planned new financial guidance body to help facilitate the dashboard’s development. Former pensions minister Sir Steve Webb, now director of policy at Royal London, described the ministers’ statements as “a huge breakthrough after a period of uncertainty”, but emphasised that “only the government” could supply state pension data and legislate to ensure full coverage.Prototype work to continueThe ABI has pledged to continue its work on developing the dashboard, while Origo said it would meet providers later this month regarding its efforts.Anthony Rafferty, managing director at Origo, described McVey’s comments as “a holding statement” ahead of the publication of the government’s feasibility study. Guy Opperman addresses the PLSA conference in October 2017The ministers’ statements marked a softening of the government’s stance on the dashboard. In October last year, Opperman told an industry conference the government would take the lead on the project, building on prototypes developed by the Association of British Insurers and technology company Origo.“Be in absolutely no doubt: The dashboard will happen,” Opperman said at the time.However, by July this year there had been no developments from the government and a UK newspaper reported that McVey was considering abandoning support for the dashboard.Nigel Peaple, director of policy and research at the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA), which represents UK pension schemes, said it was “absolutely vital” that the government remained “closely involved” with the project.  He added: “The PLSA has long said that government participation is essential to the success of this project, both to give the public confidence in the tool and to ensure all parts of the pension sector and other key stakeholders are fully involved.” The UK government must legislate to force providers to contribute information to a proposed pension dashboard, industry commentators have said.Two ministers yesterday issued statements broadly supporting the creation of a “dashboard” to collate information about individuals’ retirement savings, after weeks of speculation that the government was set to drop its support for the project.However, the statements suggested that private companies would have to develop the model. Commentators also voiced concern that there was no promise of government legislating to provide state pension data to the dashboard, or to force providers to supply data.Esther McVey, the minister for work and pensions, said yesterday that the dashboard concept “offers a great opportunity to give people straightforward access to their pension information in a clear a and simple format – bringing together an individual’s savings in a single place online”. “It’s clear there is broad support for the concept of a dashboard and its potential to empower those putting money away for their futures,” she added. “By taking a leading role, and harnessing their knowledge, industry can develop a dashboard that works for pensions holders – and government will help facilitate this.”Guy Opperman, parliamentary under-secretary for pensions and financial inclusion, said in a written statement to parliament that the government’s feasibility work on the project “has made it clear that we should not underestimate the size or complexity of the challenge”.He added: “We will continue to engage with industry on this model and government will protect pension savers and personal information by legislating where necessary.”The work and pensions department would report on the results of its feasibility study “shortly”, Opperman said.Government support – but form is uncertainlast_img read more
