GC Launches Proposed Revenue Sharing Formula

first_imgLaunching the proposed Revenue Sharing Formula, Finance and Development Planning Minister Samuel Tweah says all should read and comprehend the document. Authorities of the Governance Commission (GC) on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 convened a consultative forum in Monrovia, at which it launched a proposed revenue sharing formula to be used across the country once completed and enacted into law by the 54th Legislature.The event, which brought together representatives from various ministries and agencies, as well as a few members of the legislature, was launched by Samuel Tweah, Minister of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP).In his proposed revenue sharing formula document, Tweah said the people across the country stand to equitably benefit should the Legislature consider it a law by an appropriate legislation.“This study cuts across two key pillars of the Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD) to include Power to the People and Sustaining the Peace. The agenda is that people have access to their resources, and have the means to determine their social and economic livelihoods and the only way you can achieve that is if institutional structures enable them to do that,” he said.He added, “The other pillar is about sustaining the peace. A lot of times we see peace efforts through the absence of conflict or when there is no violence. We think this means we have peace, but that is not just the case. If we dig deep down in why we go into conflict most times with each other in our lives, we get to know that it is because of inequity.”Tweah said that lack of equitable distribution of Liberia’s resources over the years since independence has led to the many crises being experienced, and may continue to thread on the same sad note if the right frameworks are not put into place and executed in accordance with the prevailing circumstances.A cross-section of the audience with Senator Gbleh-Bo Brown (far right) and Representative Larry Younquoi (center)“Imagine how unfair it is for a nurse working in Monrovia to receive more money in salary as well as other benefits than nurse who works in River Gee, even though the two have the same qualifications, and competence. This is unfair, but the only way to correct it is to have a good structure and an uncompromising system,” he said.He said that the clear way to fight fragility in the country is to empower people and develop institutions that will promote equity.“This is going to be a critical milestone. We may not have everything equally shared among the people, but it is a good practice that people live without stress or worry about how they will afford to eat or take care of their basic needs. This is why I challenge you, fellow Liberians and our foreign partners, to read this document that will help us succeed in curtailing our collective national challenges at hand,” Minister Tweah said.He said the Swedish Government, that has invested and continues to invest in the policies leading to the reformation of the governance system of Liberia, will help our government to reestablish the agriculture development bank.“This will allow us loan money to people involved in agricultural activities at an appreciable level, and the benefit thereof will be immense,” he said without any clarification as to when and how the reestablishment of the agriculture bank will be done.Tweah said that the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led government will reform the national fiscal budget of 2019/2020 as well as the ones ahead.“This will give confidence to the investors, and our growth will take a positive dimension,” he said, while commending donor partners for their commitment to doing what is good for Liberia.Cllr. Nwabudike lectures on the overview of the proposed revenue sharing formula.Senator J. Gbleh-Bo Brown, chairman on the Senate Committee for governance and reform, said the initiative is a good venture simply because, when passed into law, it will allow people in the rural areas carry out their own developments without solely relying on central government to get them done.“This brings in local social and economic growth, because the locals will be happy if some of the revenues collected could remain in the county and be used in accordance to their own plans, Sen. Brown said.Earlier, in his welcoming statement and overview presentation, GC Chairman, Cllr. A. Ndubuisi Nwabudike, described President George Weah as someone who is committed to letting the people have access to power at all levels.“The President is interested in seeing to it that the people have access to their own resources. The revenues they collect should therefore serve them directly to impact their lives,” Cllr. Nwabudike said.He added: “This is not the actual formula, but a proposal for the formula. The formula itself will be enacted by the legislature, because they will decide which county gets what percentage of the revenue collected.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

A Place for Mothers in the Every Newborn Action Plan

first_imgPosted on February 21, 2014November 7, 2016By: Alison Chatfield, Project Manager, Maternal Health Task Force, Women and Health Initiative; Annie Kearns, Project Manager, Maternal Health Task Force, Women and Health InitiativeClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)The past year has seen a great deal of momentum around the Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP). The Plan, which sets global targets and priorities for ending preventable newborn deaths, is now open for consultation from a wide range of stakeholder groups.The maternal health community has an especially important role to play in this process. The Every Newborn Action Plan focuses on ending preventable newborn  deaths, requiring a strong focus on implementing essential interventions for newborns. Just as importantly, however, it means ensuring that mothers’ needs are met and that  the integration between maternal and newborn health is adequately recognized.Maternal health is already a priority of the Every Newborn Action Plan, and is woven inthroughout the document. This is particularly true of the strategic objectives:1. Strengthen and invest in care during labor, childbirth and the first day of lifeGiven that almost three-fourths of maternal and newborn deaths occur during this time period, the Plan prioritizes investment in intrapartum and early postpartum care for both mother and child.2. Improve the quality of maternal and newborn careMothers and newborns are often subject to poor quality of care (e.g. disrespectful interpersonal care; lack of evidence-based clinical practice), and opportunities for stakeholders like training institutions and governmental bodies to work together to improve quality for mothers and newborns should be prioritized.3. Reach every woman and newborn to reduce inequities Despite important progress, the goal of dismantling barriers to care for mothers and newborns remains unrealized. Global progression towards universal health coverage should be leveraged to increase access to high-quality health facilities for all women and children.4. Harness the power of parents, families, and communitiesMany maternal and newborn deaths happen at home without any health care having been sought. Women’s participatory groups, community-based capacity-building activities, and mass media should be used to shift social norms and foster community mobilization around maternal and newborn health.5. Count every newborn – measurement, program tracking and accountabilityMany country-level vital registration systems do not include complete data on all births and deaths. Core indicators regarding quality of maternal and newborn care as well as health outcomes are sorely needed, and countries should integrate them into their national health systems.The importance of prioritizing maternal health in order to accomplish these strategic actions is clear. This was emphasized last week at a live briefing of the Every Newborn Action Plan, held in Washington, D.C. by USAID/MCHIP, Save the Children and the CORE Group:The Every Newborn Action Plan positions newborns along the continuum of Reproductive, Maternal and Child Health, and integration is one of the guiding principles of the Plan. Therefore, it is critical that mothers are appropriately woven in throughout the document.Similarly, it will be crucial that all allied global health fields, including the maternal and newborn health communities, work closely with each other to harmonize international health system frameworks, intervention packages, and measurement and evaluation tools to enable integration in the post-2015 era.Global, national and local stakeholders are called on to weigh in on the Plan to ensure that the Every Newborn recommendations are appropriate, feasible and valuable to their communities of practice. It is of particular importance to hear from those who will be called on to implement the Plan during this consultation phase.Consultation on the draft plan is open until February 28, 2014. While this is a critical milestone on the Every Newborn calendar, voices from the maternal health community need to be heard throughout the Every Newborn Action Plan process. As a community, we also need to be active in setting our own global targets.
