Keep track, for transparency.
In order to keep on the right track, it’s important to know where we are starting and how the results are doing along the way.
For Ella, transparency is a key to change, because is creates awareness, shared knowledge and common goals. The fewer who has the same information - the fewer can have an impact on future decisions and directions. Transparency includes people and makes it harder for a few to take actions that might affect many others badly.
The World Health Statistics 2018, WHO’s annual snapshot of the state of the world’s health, highlights that while remarkable progress towards the SDG:s has been made in some areas, in other areas progress has stalled and the gains that have been made could easily be lost.
The latest data available shows that:
Less than half the people in the world today get all of the health services they need.
In 2010, almost 100 million people were pushed into extreme poverty because they had to pay for health services out of their own pockets.
13 million people die every year before the age of 70 from cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, diabetes and cancer – most in low and middle-income countries.
Every day in 2016, 15,000 children died before reaching their fifth birthday.
Being aware brings you off to a good start.
Keeping updated and informed can be quite overwhelming. A smooth way of staying on your own track of values and choices - make sure your money ends up where you think they should be.
Or at least not, where you don’t think they should be - your values matter!
