Oxfam réclame la suspension du programme “Santé en Afrique” de la Banque mondiale

Dans un rapport publié mercredi, l’ONG Oxfam pointe du doigt l’initiative Santé en Afrique menée par une filiale de la Banque Mondiale, estimant que le milliard de dollars mobilisé bénéficie principalement aux plus riches.

Pour tenter de répondre au défi des inégalités sociales concernant l’accès aux soins sur le continent, la Société financière internationale (SFI) a lancé, en 2008, l’initiative “Santé en Afrique”. Le programme est destiné à encourager les investissements du secteur privé dans la santé, et est appuyé, entre autres, par la France, le Japon et les Pays-Bas. Mais dans un rapport publié mercredi 10 septembre, l’ONG Oxfam réclame son interruption provisoire, estimant que ses engagements initiaux ne sont pas respectés.

Selon Nicolas Mombrial, le porte-parole d’Oxfam, “l’initiative Santé en Afrique ne contribue pas à réduire l’écart entre les riches et les pauvres en matière de soins de santé”. L’ONG indique qu’une part importante des investissements engagés dans le cadre du programme a servi au financement de centres hospitaliers “urbains, onéreux et haut de gamme, qui proposent des soins tertiaires aux citoyens les plus riches des Etats africains et aux expatriés”, excluant, de fait, les populations les plus défavorisées.

“Les hôpitaux “Lagoon Hospitals” d’Hygeia au Nigeria, qui ont bénéficié de prêts et d’investissements pour la santé en Afrique d’au moins 7,68 millions de dollars, se vantent de leurs chambres de luxe et revendiquent mener des opérations qui ne sont réalisées que dans quelques rares hôpitaux spécialisés du Royaume-Uni et des États-Unis”, explique, par exemple, Oxfam dans son rapport.

Prospérité partagée

En décembre 2013, Jim Yong Kim, le président du Groupe Banque mondiale, avait pourtant fait part de sa détermination à “aider les pays à concrétiser cette aspiration à la couverture universelle”, concernant l’accès des populations à la santé. “L’instauration de la couverture universelle et de l’équité en matière de santé est l’élément indispensable à la réalisation des objectifs mondiaux visant à éliminer l’extrême pauvreté d’ici à 2030 et à stimuler une prospérité partagée”, avait-il ajouté.

En dépit des diverses initiatives régionales et internationales menées en faveur d’un renforcement des systèmes de santé en Afrique, l’accès des populations aux services sanitaires reste, aujourd’hui encore, extrêmement inégalitaire. Or de l’avis de tous les spécialistes, il s’agit d’un défi essentiel de la poursuite d’un développement pacifique et équitable.

  1. What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!
