Welfare gains from user charges for government health services. (3/951)

The World Bank's Financing health services in developing countries emphasizes demand-side issues--highlighting user fees, insurance, and the private sector as tools for strengthening the health sector. That approach is a major departure from the focus on the supply side--public sector spending, costs, management, and efficiency--that has dominated the international health finance agenda for many years. An important set of empirical papers by Paul Gertler and his co-authors coincided with the release of the policy paper. Gertler's work has questioned a policy of greater dependence on user fees by emphasizing the potential welfare costs to consumers of higher fees for medical services. Many health professionals have adopted the jargon of this new approach without understanding the underlying analysis. This article attempts to demystify the debate that has ensued by illustrating economists' idiosyncratic approach to welfare, explaining how the policy paper and Gertler differ, and suggesting alternative approaches to testing the feasibility of the policy paper's prescriptions.  (+info)

The potential of health sector non-governmental organizations: policy options. (4/951)

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have increasingly been promoted as alternative health care providers to the state, furthering the same goals but less hampered by government inefficiencies and resource constraints. However, the reality of NGO health care provision is more complex. Not only is the distinction between government and NGO providers sometimes difficult to determine because of their operational integration, but NGOs may also suffer from resource constraionts and management inefficiencies similar to those of government providers. Some registered NGOs operate as for-profit providers in practice. Policy development must reflect the strengths and weaknesses of NGOs in particular settings and should be built on NGO advantages over government in terms of resource mobilization, efficiency and/or quality. Policy development will always require a strong government presence in co-ordinating and regulating health care provision, and an NGO sector responsive to the policy goals of government.  (+info)

Whose policy is it anyway? International and national influences on health policy development in Uganda. (5/951)

As national resources for health decline, so dependence on international resources to finance the capital and recurrent costs is increasing. This dependence, combined with an increasing emphasis on policy-based, as opposed to project-based, lending and grant-making has been accompanied by greater involvement of international actors in the formation of national health policy. This paper explores the process of health policy development in Uganda and examines how major donors are influencing and conflicting with national policy-making bodies. Focusing on two examples of user fees and drugs policies, it argues that while the content of international prescriptions to strengthen the health system may not be bad in itself, the process by which they are applied potentially threatens national sovereignty and weakens mechanisms for ensuring accountability. It concludes by proposing that in order to increase the sustainability of policy reforms, much greater emphasis should be placed on strengthening national capacity for policy analysis and research, building up policy networks and enhancing the quality of information available to the public concerning key policy changes.  (+info)

Introducing health insurance in Vietnam. (6/951)

Like many other countries Vietnam is trying to reform its health care system through the introduction of social insurance. The small size of the formal sector means that the scope for compulsory payroll insurance is limited and provinces are beginning to experiment with ways of encouraging people to buy voluntary insurance. Methods of contracting between hospitals and insurance centres are being devised. These vary in complexity and there is a danger that those based on fee for service will encourage excessive treatment for those insured. It is important that the national and provincial government continue to maintain firm control over funding while also ensuring that a substantial and targeted general budget subsidy is provided for those unable to make contributions.  (+info)

User charges in government health facilities in Kenya: effect on attendance and revenue. (7/951)

In this paper we study demand effects of user charges in a district health care system using cross-sectional data from household and facility surveys. The effects are examined in public as well as in private health facilities. We also look briefly at the impact of fees on revenue and service quality in government facilities. During the period of cost-sharing in public clinics, attendance dropped by about 50%. This drop prompted the government to suspend the fees for approximately 20 months. Over the 7 months after suspension of fees, attendance at government health centres increased by 41%. The suspension further caused a notable movement of patients from the private sector to government health facilities. The revenue generated by user fees covered 2.4% of the recurrent health budget. Some 40% of the facilities did not spend the fee revenue they collected, mainly due to cumbersome procedures of expenditure approvals. The paper concludes with lessons from Kenya's experience with user charges.  (+info)

Quality of primary outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam: a comparison of government and voluntary providers. (8/951)

This study aimed to test whether voluntary agencies provide care of better quality than that provided by government with respect to primary curative outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam. All non-government primary services were included, and government primary facilities were randomly sampled within the three districts of the city. Details of consultations were recorded and assessed by a panel who classed consultations as adequate, inadequate but serious consequences unlikely, and consultations where deficiencies in the care could have serious consequences. Interpersonal conduct was assessed and exit interviews were conducted. The study found that government registers of non-government 'voluntary' providers actually contained a high proportion of for-profit private providers. Comparisons between facilities showed that care was better overall at voluntary providers, but that there was a high level of inadequate care at both government and non-government providers.  (+info)

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This article attempts to determine whether controlling for the time-varying risk premium would improve the ability of the federal funds futures to predict the Federal Open Market Committees (FOMC) decision regarding the direction and magnitude of changes in the federal funds target rate at different forecast horizons. This is done using an appropriate categorical dependent variable model, which is estimated using real-time monthly data covering the period from January 1994 through September 2008. Following Piazzesi and Swanson (2008), control is made for the risk premium using a number of business-cycle indicators including nonfarm payrolls, the industrial production index, the help wanted index, and a measure of the Treasury yield spread. The results indicate that accounting for the risk premium modestly improves the predictive performance of the futures rate for the longer forecast horizons. Moreover, such a control appears to alleviate the over-prediction of
Downloadable! Despite the vast literature dealing with the impact of the subsidies on world cotton prices, there is no consensus regarding the quantification of these effects. The aim of this paper is to contribute to this literature through the implementation of a meta-regression analysis. This methodology allows us to: (i) identify the main sources of heterogeneity between the primary studies, (ii) give some tracks to improve the modeling, (iii) provide a reliable quantification of the removal of subsidies on world cotton prices. Relying on the estimation of various models to derive robust results, our findings show that a withdrawal of US subsidies would increase the world cotton price by around 10%.

Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee, is one of two lead signers of a letter sent this week to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue asking the U.S. Department of Agriculture to increase funding for orange juice purchases in Florida to $90 million.That would be twice the initial allocation from this past summer, Sotos office said in a news release. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Gainesville, joined Soto in drafting the letter. Rep. Ross Spano, R-Dover, joined more than a dozen members of
In December 2012, the Ministry of Health launched the Citizens Health Portal, where all citizens have secure and private access to their medical records from public institutions, as well as registration information and relevant healthcare information. HIM professionals will also be key players in ensuring that the system remains secure and reassuring that the public keeps its trust in the system. Brasil has focused on creating a state-of-the-art electronic health system and national data collection of health information has grown in importance in Brasil over the last decade. The Brasilian Federal Government, through the Ministry of Health, has a bold challenge in implementing its CNS project, i.e. the National Health Card. Its goal is to have all its citizens records stored in a single national database by the end of 2015.. Initiatives like the National Health Card have encouraged new technologies, competition between organizations, and globalization of activities, and have revealed the need ...

What the Bush financial team is doing is to place virtually all the load, present and immediate future on the American taxpayer. While the LIBOR rate is approaching 7% and interest rates in other places ranges from 4-6% (not counting Brazil etc.),the 2% Federal Funds rates makes life easier for banks and investment firms who have caused this problem, while penalizing those few off us who were savers. We have a negative interest rate with current inflation of at least 5.5% (if you believe the massaged numbers from the government). - Real inflation is likely higher, but the government can still borrow at negligible rates, encouraging further fiscal irresponsibility. - After the Congress just increased the debt limit very quietly by another $900 billion or so, just like the last time,money which we do not have is being spent wildly, and the war is continuing to be paid for off budget.. Now that the market has lost almost 20% of its peak value of last October, all the stockholders have felt the ...
Trump threatens to strip funds from UC Berkeley When President Donald Trump threatened to strip federal funds from UC Berkeley last week a
So, if one rejects any of these monetary measures as a reliable gauge of the Feds policy, how does one avoid the following meaningless circularity: Why were interest rates so low? Because of Greenspans expansionary monetary policy. How do we know that Greenspans policy was expansionary? Because interest rates were so low. To anchor the claim that Fed policy caused undesirably low interest rates, one must turn to Taylors estimate that the equilibrium, real Federal funds rate of two percent remained constant throughout this period. Doing so arbitrarily excludes by assumption any alternative explanation for the periods low interest rates, including the one that both Ben Bernanke and Greenspan offered. Somewhat misleadingly referred to as the global saving glut thesis, it was supported by the fact that the net inflow of savings from abroad dwarfed the Feds increase of the monetary base. In 2006 alone, that annual inflow was about $800 billion, far exceeding the mere $200 billion increase ...
Wrong. From Carl Schramm at Forbes: In the past 15 years, despite a doubling of federal funds for biomedical R&D, the number of new drugs approved by the FDA and coming to market has decreased by nearly half - from around 40 per year in the late 1990s to a little over 20 per year since 2005. Pre-market testing to meet FDA requirements has become such a huge factor in drug development budgets that its hard for companies to even consider working on new products with limited market potential ...
Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he needs $6.9 billion in federal funds to keep the state afloat. Video courtesy of Fox News.
The old saying goes that cant have your cake and eat it too. However that is exactly what the Federal Reserve is apparently attempting to accomplish at the moment, as chairwoman Yellen continues to assure that a rate hike is just around the corner, and this time itll absolutely be for real. Of course invariable by that date absolute economic perfection has yet to be achieved which naturally is why any meaningful hike in the federal funds rate continues to be looming just around the corner, in perpetuity.. Until recently the strategy has been to simply postpone rate hikes for the next time or to the next quarter, with only one or two actively voting FOMC token members in opposition. However now it appears that an internal rift of sorts has developed in that one side is preaching caution in a low-inflation environment while another worries over the price of delaying. So if youre worried about the value of your Dollar savings and your purchasing power swirling down the toilet bowl then this news ...

On Sunday, March 15, the Federal Reserve announced its second emergency rate cut in the past two weeks, slashing the benchmark federal funds rate by 1% to a target range of 0-0.25%-the lowest level since December 2015.
Then it likely would be appropriate for the committee to increase the target range for the federal funds rate in June, accorThe suggestion that a rate increase in June is firmly on the table suggests the Fed is closer to tightening monetary policy again than Wall Street had expected. The Fed lifted rates in December for the first time in nearly a decade. Read more ...
Getting these people back to work will require something more than companies returning to their pre-recession profitability. It will require new companies, new industries, new areas to invest. Twelve months ago, I would have pointed to green technology, but without a carbon price to advantage wind, solar and other alternative energies, I dont know that green jobs will thrive merely on the back of government subsidies and weatherization tax credits. The White House expects that jobs will continue to come mostly from health care, education, and government. If we dont add another industry to that trinity, were looking at a long, long job slog. ...

This study has determined that Chinese government subsidies on healthcare have been equitably distributed in outpatient services but not yet to the inpatient services. All GHS KIs for inpatient services were positive in both urban and rural areas in 2007. This indicates that the government health subsidies were concentrated on the rich relative to their ATPs. On the other hand, GHS KIs for outpatient services were all negative in 2007, suggesting the GHS was pro-poor after adjusting for the ATP. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that the equity of GHS has improved from 2002 to 2007 in outpatient services in rural areas but not in outpatient services in urban areas nor all inpatient services in both rural and urban areas. Equity in GHS on inpatients services was not improved based on the increased KI values both in urban (KI increased by 0.4049 from 2002 to 2007) and rural areas (KI increased by 0.1292). However, in rural outpatient care, GHS was inequality-reducing as indicated by the ...

Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) are not new to the American cultural landscape. For over three decades, they have provided pregnancy options counseling from an antiabortion perspective. But CPCs are relatively new to the political scene. The last few years have seen a sudden groundswell in both federal and state legislation designed to support and promote them. To date, such efforts have largely focused on two goals: securing direct or indirect government subsidies for CPCs and raising their profile and stature in the public eye.
This Grants Impact Analysis focuses on analyzing and summarizing the spending and outcomes of all grants funded in WMF Fiscal Year 2013-14, for the Project and Event Grants (PEG) and the Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) programs. Given this analysis coincided with a consultation on re-structuring the WMF grants programs, the Analysis of Spending was expanded to encompass across all grants programs except the Annual Plan Grants Program (i.e. PEG, IEG, TPS and Wikimania Scholarships). This report differs from previous Grant Impact Analyses by focusing on all grants funded in Fiscal Year 2013-14, rather than grants for which a report was submitted in that fiscal year. While this does imply an overlap in grants analyzed, this report is not completely duplicative. ...

Both of these resolutions encouraged the restructuring of Georgias Medicaid program from its current federal-state partnership structure to a block grant program. SR 349 urged the U.S. Congress to block grant funding for Georgias Medicaid program and indigent care needs, while HR 182 provided legislative permission to the Governor and the Department of Community Health to seek per capita block grant funding for Medicaid. Shifting Medicaid to either a traditional or per capita block grant structure would result in cuts to services and beneficiaries, putting Georgias most vulnerable children, parents, elderly, and people with disabilities at risk. Check out GHFs block grant fact sheet for more information about the dangers of restructuring the Medicaid program. While resolutions are non-binding and do not impact state law, they are viewed as the official position of the General Assembly.. ...
The objective of the first Public Expenditure Tracking Survey (PETS) for Niger is to increase understanding of the link between public spending and service delivery at the facility level in order to contribute to improving the effectiveness and accountability in the use of public funds. Specifically, this PETS focuses on identifying the discrepancies, inefficiencies and delays in public spending execution for selected expenditures in the education and health sectors. The medium to long term goal of these PETS is to launch a process aimed at continuous improvements in public expenditure efficiency and equity by focusing on capacity building in this area in the ministries of education and health and in the Institute of National Statistics (INS). The main challenge faced by a tracking survey in a country like Niger is the availability and accuracy of records keeping. The Niger PETS highlights a general lack of systematic information recording. The quality of records in the education sector is low ...

In the United States, as of 2006[citation needed], the Federal Reserve sets an interest rate target for the federal funds (overnight bank reserves) market. When the actual federal funds rate is higher than the target, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will usually increase the money supply via a repurchase agreement (or repo), in which the Fed lends money to commercial banks. When the actual federal funds rate is less than the target, the Fed will usually decrease the money supply via a reverse repo, in which the banks purchase securities from the Fed. The Federal Reserve conducts open market operations with the objective of controlling short-term interest rates and the money supply. These operations fall into 2 categories: Dynamic open market operations are intended to change the level of reserves and the monetary base, and defensive open market operations are intended to offset movements in other factors that affect reserves and the monetary base, such as changes in Treasury deposits with ...

This first ever Public Expenditure Review (PER) for Myanmar tries to better understand Union Budget policies to accelerate delivery of essential public services.
Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft (BSW), the German solar industry association, announced Aug. 30 that 1,100 solar PV systems have received approval for the governments energy storage subsidy, and a further 4,800 applications are in the process of receiving approval.. According to the BSW, the energy storage subsidy, which has been available since May 1, provides a grant of up to EUR 600 to lower the cost of installing an energy storage component in a PV system up to 30 kW in size. The total annual budget available for the program in 2013 is reported as EUR 25 million, of which EUR 18.7 million has already been allocated.. The energy storage market in Germany will be dominated by the residential sector, with 30 MW of installations already supported by the subsidy in 2013, IHS says. Periodic decreases in FIT and continually increasing electricity prices, coupled with decreasing PV system prices, have now made it financially favorable for a homeowner to self-consume PV energy on-site rather than ...

New legislation to permit federal funds to be used for research on embryos, which would otherwise be destroyed following IVF, will be introduced to the US Congress.. Diana DeGette, Republican representative for Colorado, who has sponsored the bill, said: This legislation would place into statute a framework to ensure such critical research can be conducted unimpeded by political interference. If approved, the Stem Cell Research Advancement Act 2011 will seek to codify the US National Institutes of Healths (NIH) guidelines for human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research and will require the guidelines to be reviewed every three years. The Act will also prohibit the use of federal funds for human cloning techniques.. It is the third time such legislation has been considered by US politicians. Previous versions, which supporters say were similar to the current bill, were approved by Congress in 2006 and 2007 to be ultimately vetoed by former President George Bush. DeGette has called for broad ...

Starting with the Family Support Act of 1988, requirements for federal funding stipulate that child care subsidy rates be informed by market rates. In 1990 the federal government began a major investment in child care with the passage of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990. Support of parental choice was a key component of this new block grant program that sent new money to states to support child care. Parental choice and state control of policy remained central when the program was expanded in 1996 as a part of welfare reform legislation. At that time, child care funding became known as the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). States are required by the CCDF Final Rule to ensure that families receiving child care assistance have equal access to comparable care purchased by private-paying parents. A market rate survey (MRS) is a tool States use to achieve this program objective. Some States conduct surveys to collect the child care market rate and others use administrative ...

OTTAWA - Canadas parliamentary budget officer says reforms to a federal support program for provinces will nearly triple the cost to Ottawa next year, with the price tag projected to be about $4.5 billion. Yves Giroux says the governments fiscal stabilization program, which transfers cash to provinces that experience steep year-over-year revenue drops, will increase by $2.9 billion in fiscal 2021-22. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a major change to the program in the governments fall economic update. The revenue-insurance plan, which has been around since 1967, will now index the cap on provincial payments to Canadas rate of GDP growth per person, a ceiling that was previously fixed at $60 per person in 1987. Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has said the overhaul does not go far enough, calling it a slap in the face, since even major declines in resource revenue might not trigger the fiscal stabilization, while a five per cent drop in non-resource revenue will. The beefed-up federal support
Key points. • The ratio of local government own-source revenue to GDP is about 2 per cent.. - The ratio of rates revenue (the only tax instrument of councils) to GDP decreased from 1.0 per cent to 0.9 per cent between 1990-91 and 2005-06.. • Local governments in urban areas are predominantly funded from their own sources of revenue, particularly rates, fees and charges. For most rural and remote councils, grants are also a substantial source of their revenue.. • The revenue-raising capacity of local governments depends partly on their fiscal capacity, which differs by class of local government.. - The fiscal capacity of a council is best measured as the aggregate after-tax income of its community.. • Urban developed councils tend to draw lightly of their fiscal capacities. Remote and rural councils tend to draw more heavily on their fiscal capacities.. • Analysis of the relative potential of local governments to increase their own-source revenue indicates that councils are raising ...
A formula may be based on population, per capita income, and other statistical factors. Applicants are informed whether there are any matching requirements to be met when participating in the cost of a project. In general, the matching share represents that portion of the project costs not borne by the Federal government. Attachment F of OMB Circular No. A-102 (Office of Management and Budget) sets forth the criteria and procedures for the evaluation of matching share requirements which may be cash or in-kind contributions made by State and local governments or other agencies, institutions, private organizations, or individuals to satisfy matching requirements of Federal grants or loans. Cash contributions represent the grantees cash outlay, including the outlay of money contributed to the grantee by other public agencies, institutions, private organizations, or individuals. When authorized by Federal regulation, Federal funds received from other grants may be considered as the grantees cash ...

The Georgia Department of Transportation board allocated $128 million for the construction of the fifth and final phase of the Truman Parkway.. This is a great Christmas present for everybody in Chatham County, said Pete Liakakis, Chatham County Commission chairman.. After the state did not grant any federal money for the project earlier this year, federal funds and state fuel-tax revenue now will be used to extend the parkway from Whitfield Avenue to Abercorn Street, just north of Holland Drive. Also approved was about $866,000 to widen an Interstate 95 exit ramp to Ga. 204.. The money originally was to fund multiple projects across the state, but those projects were not yet ready to build, said Tom Thomson, executive director of Chatham County-Savannah Metropolitan Planning Commission. Instead of waiting for those projects to be finalized, the federal government wanted to get the projects started in order to produce jobs as soon as possible, Thomson said..
