        Development Actors" and a preparatory event for a larger conference planned in November 2010 in Managua, Nicaragua.

Action for global health: summary of global health position at the World Health Summit
At the, Action for Global Health calls on world leaders to increase their efforts to provide universal access to health. Billions of
people throughout the world do not have access to even the most basic health care services, including sexual and reproductive
health services, and do not benefit from medical progress because the right to health is far from universal. We call on
governments throughout the world to act now to ensure universal access to health:
1. Donor governments must give 0.1% of their gross national income as official development assistance to health. Governments
of partner countries should allocate 15% of their national budgets to health.
2. Donors and governments of partner countries must involve civil society and community-based organisations in the
development, implementation and monitoring of health policies.
3. Governments must ensure access to healthcare free at the point of use.

Publications

Alternatives Sud : La Bolivie d'Evo: Démocratique, indianiste et socialiste?
Nouveau numéro de la revue "Alternatives Sud". Habituellement épinglé comme l‟un des pays les plus pauvres de
l‟hémisphère occidental en dépit de ses importantes richesses naturelles, la Bolivie affiche aujourd‟hui l‟image d‟un Etat
engagé dans une dynamique historique de refondation de ses structures économiques, sociales et institutionnelles.
Priorités du gouvernement d‟Evo Morales : la récupération de la souveraineté nationale, la redistribution sociale des
revenus, la reconnaissance de la diversité culturelle et la revalorisation de la démocratie. Elu président de la Bolivie à la
majorité absolue en 2005, plébiscité par 67% de ses concitoyens lors du référendum révocatoire d‟août 2008 et peut-être
en route pour un deuxième mandat de chef d‟Etat, l‟ancien militant syndicaliste cocalero, l‟indigène aymara Morales incarne
d‟abord l‟aboutissement politique d‟un long processus d‟organisation populaire généré dans la contestation sociale des
années néolibérales. Il révèle aussi toute la fragilité, la difficulté et les aléas d‟une entreprise ambitieuse de décolonisation
des institutions et des pratiques. Trop conciliant ou pragmatique pour les uns, centralisateur ou inefficace pour d‟autres, son
nationalisme de gauche, son idéal socialiste aux accents indianistes effraie avant tout l‟élite blanche des riches régions
orientales de la Bolivie, ainsi qu‟une certaine communauté internationale. Renégociation des contrats avec les
multinationales d‟exploitation des hydrocarbures, refonte complète de la Constitution nationale, nouvelles répartitions
agraires... la liste des acquis s‟allonge. Mais un projet aussi « populaire » peut-il s‟inscrire dans la durée ?.www.cetri.be

Action aid: report “Who’s really fighting hunger?”
ActionAid's HungerFREE Scorecard report looks at the performance of 51 governments in tackling hunger. Unlike other hunger
indices, which assess outcomes only, it also evaluates government actions and commitments. The actions and commitments
tracked are those singled out in the UN‟s 2008 Comprehensive Framework for Action as most critical for reversing hunger 2.
Developing countries have been graded on their legal commitment to the right to food, investment in agriculture and social
protection, and performance on hunger and child nutrition. Developed countries have been ranked on aid to agriculture and
social protection; commitment to sustainable agriculture and tackling climate change. The first section of this report,
„HungerFREE Global Indicators‟, compares performance and progress across countries. The second section of this report,

                                                                                                                                    2
„HungerFREE Country Scorecards‟, takes a closer look at each country with at-a-glance scorecards. See report : Who‟s Really
Fighting Hunger?. Contact person: Chris.Coxon@actionaid.org

Report by SOLIDAR, Eurodad, and the Global Network shows “Doing a decent job? IMF policies
and decent work in times of crisis”
At the Pittsburgh G20 meeting two weeks ago, global leaders put forward suggestions to change the IMF governance
structure.Despite the IMF saying that they have become "more flexible" with regard to monetary policy and lending conditions,
IMF loans - that countries severely affected by the financial crisis have had to take out - are still having the same detrimental
effects on social protection, decent work and poverty, a new report by SOLIDAR, Eurodad, and the Global Network shows. The
report “Doing a decent job? IMF policies and decent work in times of crisis”, critically examines the situation faced by those most
vulnerable in the wake of government cuts imposed by the IMF‟s tight fiscal policies in El Salvador, Ethiopia and Latvia. Read
the full report (also available in Spanish).

SOLIDAR: The Booklet “Decent Work Decent Life: The Campaign So Far”
Solidar and the Decent Work Alliance (ITUC, GPF, World Solidarity, ETUC) are celebrating the second World Day for
Decent Work. To mark the occasion, SOLIDAR is launching a booklet explaining the actions that the Alliance has undertaken so
far. The Booklet entitled Decent Work Decent Life: The Campaign So Far will take you on a trip over the last few years
highlighting the main goals and achievements of this global campaign. Read the booklet. Other actions that the Decent Work
Alliance are carrying out today include:
      A global handover of the signatures collected for the Call to Action for Decent Work to key regional organisations (the
       European Parliament in Brussels; the Organisation of American States in Buenos Aires; the IMF/World Bank in Istanbul;
       the Africa Union in Addis Abeba; the Asian Development Bank in Manila) re-emphasising the need to put decent work at
       the centre of the national, regional and international plans to confront the crisis.
      The Decent Work Game: Between 10-11 come and join MEPs and representatives from NGOs and play the Decent Work
       game in the European Parliament in Brussels. Test your knowledge of what makes work decent and see if you can make
       it to the ultimate goal of having a decent life! The game will be held on the ground floor of the ASP building, zone G.

European policies are harming developing countries, says a CONCORD report (also in publication and
press sections).Responding to the Commission‟s Communication and report on Policy Coherence for
Development, CONCORD released a report appealing for Europe to stop harming developing countries with
its policies. Read the whole press release. Read the speech of Rob Drimmelen.

The “Spotlight on Policy Coherence” report looks at the damaging impact that EU policies such as trade and
agriculture are having on developing countries, effectively undoing all of the potential achievements of its
development aid.
