Nieuwsbrief september/oktober 2012

Dear colleagues and friends,

Times are challenging! And it all depends on the perspective you choose: from a European angle, the future of funds for international assistance is uncertain. From an Eastern perspective the balance of power is shifting and relationships need to be redefined. Chinese presence in Africa leads to many speculations about the future, and just as interesting, the Organisation of Islamic States has brokered a presence in Myanmar to help out with the crisis in Rakhine State. And HealthNet TPO is asked to work with Save the Children on programmes for the Islamic Rohengya population, who suffer from ethnic violence on top of natural disaster.

We are also moving forward in successful partnering! In programmatic terms we have taken the first threshold and are invited to develop a full proposal with Achmea and Wageningen UR for a combination of improved agricultural practices, improved access to health care, increased income and accessible insurance schemes. We have also entered interesting partnerships with Presenter and Expand Online, who will help us present ourselves in the modern media!

Enough to be updated on....enjoy!

Best wishes,
Willem

Wat blijft er over van haar zorgpakket?

lead imageDe toekomst van gezondheidszorg is een belangrijk onderwerp in de formatie. Gezondheidszorg kost geld, en de kosten rijzen de pan uit.
