    Lobbying, Power and Health – A European Vision

    The purpose of this publication is to open up the debate on lobbying and to define it in both the Finish and international context, particularly around public health legislation around sugar and alcohol tax. An additional purpose is to challenge the negative connotations which surround lobbying. Decision makers need information, and interest groups want to share it with them. However, it is important to remember that those with power and resources will get their message across more easily, especially if lobbying is not open. Closed doors behind legislative influence can endanger democracy.

    Improving Basic Healthcare Service Delivery in Cameroon by Promoting Innovative Whistle-blowing Techniques

    The project aimed to reinforce transparency, accountability, participation and integrity in public hospitals in Cameroon by raising patient awareness of healthcare rights and providing an independent mechanism to report instances of corruption.

    A new digital reporting platform was developed and piloted by TI-Cameroon in partnership with Afro-Leadership and a group of hospitals.

    An initial survey provided insight into the most effective ways for raising awareness amongst patients and encouraging whistleblowing. For example, patients highlighted their preference for using SMS and a digital platform/website to receive information and to submit complaints. For poor communities, where access to the internet is difficult, the preference is for a manual, paper-based reporting mechanism, with outreach support for villages.

    The launch strategy involved media engagement, which led to widespread radio and TV articles about the initiative. This served to further sensitise members of the general public about healthcare rights.

    An evaluation at the end of the pilot involved an experience-sharing workshop with healthcare workers, patients and representatives from the Ministry of Health.

    Enhancing Community Awareness on the Linkage between Corruption and Human Rights

    Based on The Coalition for Accountability and Integrity (AMAN) continuous search and analysis, the link between corruption and enjoyment of human rights is not yet recognized by different actors of the Palestinian society including official and non-official organizations, mainly those who are working in the field of anti-corruption and human rights.

    Thus, AMAN worked throughout this project on sharing the global knowledge on this linkage by compiling a practical assessment for Palestine with focus on the fundamental right to health, and providing community awareness on this linkage and empowering CSOs working on the health right to integrate integrity, transparency, accountability and anti- corruption in their strategies to play an active role in holding officials accountable for corruption and violation of human rights.
