Subject: [recovery_human_face] New ILO data on rural deficits in health coverage for 174 countries
While universal health coverage (UHC) and equity are high on the international agendas, until now policy makers had no evidence about coverage gaps and inequities experienced by rural as compared to urban populations. Against this background, ILO has developed for the first time the needed data and published in:
Global evidence on inequities in rural health protection – New data on rural deficits in health coverage for 174 countries
The results are shocking. We find extreme inequities at global, regional and national levels: 56 per cent of the global rural population lacks health coverage as compared to 22 per cent of the urban population. The situation is aggravated by extreme health workforce shortages in rural areas impacting on the delivery of quality services: in rural areas a global shortfall of about seven million missing health workers to deliver services is observed, compared to a lack of three million skilled staff in urban areas. Further, underfunding – deficits in per capita health expenditure – are twice as large in rural areas than in urban areas. The deficits observed result in unnecessary suffering and deaths, as reflected in rural maternal mortality rates that are 2.5 times higher than urban rates.
Globally, the highest levels in rural maternal mortality are found in Africa. Also in Africa we find the rural population that is globally most deprived of health coverage: As much as 83 percent of the rural population in Africa are lacking health coverage.
The sad conclusion of the new ILO study is that the place of living determines whether someone lives or dies! It is time for governments to act now and provide meaningful universal health protection that is not just a slogan to favor a few and leaving the rural population behind with charities rather than rights! Successful UHC requires a comprehensive social protection approach – it is challenging but feasible in the context of national social protection floor policies.

What hope for SDG3: Health and Trade
I have been following your work over the last fews weeks closely and with admiration. With a few members, I am setting up a coalition of academics and NGOs to work on health and trade issues and we will be certainly be framing the impact of trade agreements in particular relation to SDG 3. I am attaching an article I wrote this week, inspired by your campaigns but also reflecting the concerns of our own members. The second document is an outline of the Health and Trade Network, who we are and how to reach us if you would like to collaborate/join.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

In a world where more people have mobile phones than toilets, children are among the most vulnerable to contamination from human waste and dirty water.
At least 10 million children under age 5 have died since 2000 because they had no access to a basic toilet, according to a new report from the international development organization WaterAid.
To highlight sanitation as a developmental priority, the United Nations designated Wednesday as World Toilet Day, http://my.chicagotribune.
“Call For Additional Solutions” 4 Examples of Innovative Solutions to Deliver on Education Amid Ebola Crisis West Africa

Hours for our climate
In hours Europe could agree a plan to curb catastrophic climate change, but unless EU leaders hear from us louder than the blockers, they won’t negotiate the plan our planet needs.
Send them an urgent message before they meet in Brussels:
Dear friends across Europe,
2014 is on track to be the warmest year on record, but in hours Europe could agree on a plan to stop disastrous climate change.
Most EU leaders know we need to cut carbon pollution quickly, or superstorms and sea level rises will destroy the species and landscapes we all love.
But they are letting the coal lobby in Poland play politics with our future. Europe has long led the world on climate, but unless our leaders hear from us louder than they hear from the blockers, they may fold.
If Europe leads the world on pollution cuts this week, it’ll build momentum for next year’s climate summit and get other governments to follow our lead. Last month, more than 100,000 of us marched across Europe with a call for strong climate action — now let’s bring our voices directly to our leaders before they meet in Brussels.
Click to send a quick message:
The science is clear: we need to start to reduce overall carbon emissions and move fast to clean energy sources.
The first step to get there is a European climate plan to cut carbon pollution by at least 40% from 1990 levels in the next 15 years. But, with 28 governments needing to reach consensus, there’s a big danger that leaders will settle for any deal rather than the right deal.
Poland and a few other countries with strong coal industries are trying everything to limit the agreement and even to get billions of euros to subsidise their dirty coal plants. 13 key European countries, including Denmark, Italy, and the Netherlands, have formed a green alliance, and if they play their cards right, they can persuade Poland to accept the carbon goals, alongside money for clean technology and energy efficiency, not coal. It’s all a matter of political will.
Over two million of us have already signed a petition urging a bold shift to clean energy, so let’s now urge European leaders to take a stand this week to save everything we love. Send a message now:
Last month, our massive march was on front pages around the world, and now we have a chance to bring our dream of a cleaner, greener future one step closer.
Let’s inspire our leaders to become climate champions.

Ebola: before the window closes
In the last two weeks, thousands of courageous members of our movement have volunteered to fly to West Africa and help contain the deadly Ebola virus. It’s an act of heroism and a testament to the interdependence we all feel as part of this global community.
But not all of us could travel or have the right skills to help, so Avaaz asked one of the leading frontline organisations what else the 39 million of us could do to support these health workers to save lives and stem the spread. Their response was so simple, tangible and tragic it nearly made me cry: sanitation materials – gloves, soap, chlorine; personal protective equipment (PPE) kits; ambulances; and beds, equipment and supplies for the Ebola Treatment Centres.
It’s practically criminal the international community still hasn’t managed to get enough of these basics in. But we can help! PPE kits cost $280 USD — and as elements of the kits are thrown away after each use, health staff will go through over 15,000 PPE kits in just a month! $50,000 USD could buy, deliver and equip an ambulance.
So basically, if just 50,000 of us give just $20 USD right now, we could buy 10 ambulances and 2,000 hazard suits. And the frontline organisations can likely get the gear out fast enough for local and international doctors and nurses, and the amazing volunteers from our community, to have a chance to get ahead of the Ebola virus before the window to stem the outbreak closes.

This is the scene: entire health systems are collapsing under the strain. Local health workers have died trying to treat patients without the right gear. And the international response has been inadequate — a few of the richest nations in the world have committed fewer medics than the number of Avaaz members who have offered to volunteer. Right now the UN expects 10,000 new cases of Ebola a week, and there are only 4,300 beds pledged to treat them!
Governments are slowly starting to move, thanks to the intense public attention on the crisis, but most are not delivering fast enough. The scary truth is the UN says we only have weeks to contain this or millions may be under threat. That’s why us pledging now is so important — if we all chip in fast, Avaaz could provide the funds we raise to the frontline organisations within hours of reaching our goal. Here’s what we could help purchase:
- $2 USD could purchase soap to prevent an infection.
- $29 USD could provide training for a teacher on Ebola prevention so that children learn how to keep safe from the disease.
- $280 USD could pay for a full personal protective equipment kit to allow frontline health workers to more safely care for people with Ebola.
- $50,000 USD could buy, deliver and equip an ambulance.
- $120,500 USD could provide the equipment and supplies needed to help set up a 50-bed treatment centre.
Avaaz is working with several humanitarian organisations in the field, and consulting with the governments of Liberia and Sierra Leone. Together, we can support those in the thick of the battle against Ebola. Join in by clicking below. Our pledges will only be collected if we raise enough to make a difference:
To pledge an amount other than the ones listed above, click here
Our response to this deadly disease now not only could save lives, it defines who we are — a global community that believes in and acts on the threads that tie us together as one people.
The Avaaz volunteer heroes have shown that each of our lives is worth risking everything for. Let’s support their beautiful humanity wherever we are by pitching in, before this dangerous window closes.
With appreciation for all we have built together,
Alice, Mia, Ricken, Emma, Patricia, Ari, Emily and the whole Avaaz team
