WADAU WAAANZA KUJENGA UELEWA KUHUSU SIKU YA MAGONJWA YANAYOTOKEA KWA KUNDI DOGO LA JAMII

Wadau hao wakinyoosha mikono juu kuonesha umuhimu wa kuadhimishwa kwa siku hiyo ya Magonjwa Yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la jamii ndani ya jamii.

Mratibu wa tukio hilo Bibi Sharifa Mbaraka akizungumza mbele ya Waandishi wa habari (hawapo pichani) kwenye moja ya ukumbi wa hoteli ya Serena leo jijini Dar,Bi.Sharifa alisema kuwa tukio hilo limedhamiria kujumuisha  vyombo vya habari na wadau wengine ili kujenga uelewa kuhusu magonjwa hayo. 
“Yapo magonjwa tofauti yanayowasibu watu wachache takribani 7000 ambayo yameshabainishwa duniani hadi leo na Tanzania haiwezi kujitoa kwenye  hili. Hata hivyo watu wengi hapa Tanzania hawana uelewa  kuhusu magonjwa hayo”,alisema Bi Sharifa ambaye watoto wake wawili Ali Mohammed Kimara 5, na Nasreem Mohammed 3, wanasumbuliwa na magonjwa hayo.
Alifafanua kuwa kutokana na uzoefu wake, amepata msukumo  na kuamua kuwaunganisha wazazi, wagonjwa walio na magonjwa hayo na raia wenye mapenzi mema ili kujenga uelewa muhimu na kutoa wito kwa jamii kuchukua hatua.


Pichani wa pili kulia ni Mdau mkubwa wa sekta ya afya Monica Joseph kutoka Philips Medical Systems , akifafanua zaidi kuhusiana na huadhimishwa kwa Siku ya ‘Rare Disease’ Duniani ambayo inaadhimishwa leo.Monica amesema kuwa ni wakati mwafaka kwa Watanzania kuwa na tahadhari ya kuelewa kuhusu magonjwa hayo ili wanajamii waweze kufahamu mbinu za kuyadhibiti iwapo watayakuta ndani ya jamii. pichani kulia ni Dkt.Mariam Nooram kutoka hospital ya Aghakhan.

 
Kauli mbiu ya Siku ya Magonjwa Yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la jamii Mwaka 2016 ni ‘Sauti za Wagonjwa’ na inamaanisha kutambua mchango muhimu unatolewa na wagonjwa katika kutaka mahitaji yao na kuchochea mabadiliko ambayo yataboresha maisha yao na masiha ya familia zao na maisha ya wale wanaowahudumia. 
Kauli mbiu ya Siku ya Magonjwa yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la wanajamii ambayo ni, “Ungana nasi kuzifanya sauti za waathirika zisikike” ikitaka jamii kwa jumla, wale wanaishi bila magonjwa hayo au wanaothirika nayo moja kwa moja kuungana na jamii ya waathirika katika kuelewa athari za magonjwa hayo. Watu wanaoishi na magonjwa hayo na familia zao mara kadhaa hutengwa. Jamii inaweza kuwaunganisha kutoka kwenye kutengwa huko. 

Lengo la jumla la Siku ya Magonjwa yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la jamii ni kuhamasisha uelewa miongoni wa umma kwa jumla kuhusu magonwa hayo na athari zake kwa maisha ya wagonjwa ili kuyapa kipaumbele kwenye afya ya jamii ya Tanzania na kwenye bajeti ya serikali kupitia Wizara husika.

Professor Kareem Manji kutoka Muhimbili akitoa ufafanuzi mbele ya Waandishi wa Habari namna magonjwa hayo yanavyoisumbua jamii kwa kiasi kikubwa na pia uzoefu wake katika suala zima la kutoa matibabu,kushoto kwake ni Dkt Nurudin Lakhan ambaye pia alielezea namna ya magonjwa hayo  Yanayotokea kwa kundi dogo la jamii yanapaswa kuangaliwa upya ili kuitaka jamii kutambua kuwa magonjwa hayo yapo na yamekuwa yakiisumbua jamii kwa muda mrefu.

Bi.Monica Joseph kutoka Philips Medical Systems  alieleza mambo kadhaaa katika kupambana na magonjwa hayo,ameeleza kuwa ipo haja ya wadau wa sekta ya Afya na jamii kwa ujumla kuyafahamu magonjwa yasiyotambulika yapo katika jamii yetu na lazima tuchukue hatua za kushughulika nayo. Miongoni mwa hatua zinazopaswa kuchukuliwa ni pamoja na:
 
( a) Zifanyike juhudi za makusudi kuwapatia wataalam wa afya mafunzo maalum ya kutambua na kutibia magonjwa hayo,( b) Kuanzisha vitengo maalum vya kushughulikia magonjwa hayo hususan kwenye Hospitali za Rufaa. Vitengo hivyo havinabudi kuwa na vifaa mbalimbali vya kusaidia matibabu ya ugonjwa huo,(c) Uanzishwe mpango maalum wa kuwafanyia uchunguzi watoto wanaozaliwa ili kubaini kama wanao ugonjwa huo toka awali ili hatua zichukuliwe bila kuchelewa,(d) Serikali na wadau wengine wa Sekta ya Afya waangalie uwezekano wa kuwa na kampeni za kuelimisha umma juu ya ugonjwa huu kama inavyofanyika kwa magonjwa mengine kama cancer,malaria,kipindupindu,(e) Uangaliwe uwezekano wa kuanzisha shule maalum kwa ajili ya watoto wenye magonjwa yasiyotambulika.

Central Bank sets 80 pc financial inclusion target

Bank_of_Tanzania_golden_hour
THE Bank of Tanzania (BoT) has set new targets of achieving usage of formal financial services under the National Financial Inclusion Framework (NFIF 2014/17) of having 80 per cent of adult population using a financial access point.

The Monetary Statement of the first half of the 2015/16 fiscal year also shows that BoT is targeting to have at least 70 per cent of the population living within five kilometres of a financial access point by 2017.

The new development follows the country’s outstanding performance in the usage of formal financial services among the un-banked population that surpassed its initial target by 50 per cent of adult population in 2014.

According to the BoT report, the increase in access and usage of formal financial services has been driven mostly by innovation and technology in the financial sector, particularly the use of mobile phones for accessing financial services.

The digital technology has made Tanzania one of the global hot spots of innovative financial services. By the end of December 2015, the number of registered active users of mobile phone financial services was 19 million.

Similarly, the other driving force was the enhancement of legal and regulatory framework for the National Payment Systems achieved with the National Payment Systems Act 2015 that became operational in October 2015.

Subsequently, two regulations were operationalized, namely, the Licensing and Approval Regulations 2015 and the Electronic Money Issuance Regulations 2015.

Furthermore, the Bank has embarked on awareness initiatives to ensure that the stakeholders are complying with the new requirements by the end of April 2016.

The other major development reached was for the Bank embarking on modernization initiatives of High Value Payment Systems (TISS) and improvements on retail payment infrastructures and services.

The Bank is also in the process of operationalizing new NPS regulatory framework following the enactment of the NPS Act 2015 and subsequent Regulations on Electronic Money Issuance regulations (2015) and NPS Licensing and Approval regulations (2015).

Lack of women still a hot topic at Davos‏

It’s a strange thing about Davos: Women represented only 18 percent of the actual delegates, but as a topic, women ranked among the top three — right up there with refugees and climate change.

In fact, the topic of gender parity was the third most tweeted, generating a whopping 10,000 tweets. And among the top quotes:

“You’ve heard a lot about the Internet of Things; I think we need an Internet of women,” said
IMF chief Christine Lagarde.

And from Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent: “We need the three W’s: women, water and well-being.”

Why were women such a minority? And more importantly, how can we engage women in ways that really drive growth in our organizations, our communities and our economies?

It’s a topic I’ve kept my pulse on closely since my days in Silicon Valley, where I founded and later sold Women’s Financial Network.

Fast-forward to Davos, and two things come to mind: First, while women haven’t necessarily made huge strides in organizations, as our global When Women Thrive research will reveal on Wednesday (join the launch here), there are companies — and executives — waking up to the fact that women can truly shape their corporate trajectories.

In fact, we kicked off Davos by previewing our global research to be released and a powerful CEO conversation on the very topic: the role of leaders and, in particular, men.

As we’ll share on Wednesday, only 57 percent of leaders globally are engaged in diversity efforts. Worse, only 38 percent of men are engaged, down a full 10 percentage points, from 49 percent in 2014. And yet leadership engagement on a personal level is one of the six pillars of a successful gender strategy — one that drives real business impact.

Our event led to more than 400 registrants — close to three times last year’s — and, more importantly, shined the klieg lights on some powerful and innovative moves some top CEOs are making, from eBay and Cisco to Marriott and UBS.

Our event led to more than 400 registrants — close to three times last year’s — and, more importantly, shined the klieg lights on some powerful and innovative moves some top CEOs are making, from eBay and Cisco to Marriott and UBS.

Real Accountability. Jűrg Zeltner, CEO of UBS Wealth Management, was perhaps the most adamant, saying, “There’s no more excuses.” He doesn’t want to go into a boardroom without women. He’s directly holding his business managers accountable for more women, saying they’ll be fired if he doesn’t see greater numbers.

Three years ago, eBay president and CEO Devin Wenig decided to start publishing its pay equity data to help identify gaps — and that’s led others to be accountable. “The only thing worse than avoiding the issue is talking about it and not doing anything about it,” Wenig said.

Real data. The real strength of any strategy — whether it’s business or even gender — comes from having real data to identify what works and what doesn’t. Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins put it this way: “If we review sales numbers, let’s also review the people numbers.”

He’s invested $2 million-plus specifically on building a data and analytic framework to focus on pay parity. It’s a great example of one of the other pillars of a successful gender strategy: proof.

Rethinking programs. Hanzade Dogan Boyner, a leading figure in Turkey‘s online and digital world, asked at our panel: “Why do women give up at some point? Because it’s very difficult to rise to the CEO level and raise two kids. So we need to change the culture.”

There’s a lot of talk about flexible leave and returnship programs, to name just a few, and their importance to women. But there are a host of issues including the lack of engagement and training of middle managers on how to have conversations with their female workforce that are impacting the ultimate goal of greater representation throughout all career levels.

Wenig of eBay surprised the group by talking about other life events demanding programs to keep women engaged in the workforce like elder care sorely needed by women as they juggle kids and aging parents and their job in the middle. That, he said, is worthy of at least the same attention we pay to maternity/paternity leave programs.

I would have liked to see more women business women in Davos. Their unique skills like flexibility and inclusive team management are more important than ever in today’s complex world.

“Men have a unique opportunity in this, as we still make up 80 percent of the executive ranks and even more than that at the CEO level,” said Julio A. Portalatin, Mercer president and CEO. “We have a unique obligation to be out in front on growing women in the workforce. It’s not a women’s issue. This is a workforce issue.”

Commodity exchange takes off in May‏

Commodity exchange takes off in May‏
THE Tanzania Mercantile Exchange (TCX) is expecting to start trading in May this year after all the preparations including the regulations for guiding the market operations which are in the final stages.

The Capital Market and Securities Authority (CMSA), Public Relations Manager, Mr Charles Shirima said in Dar es Salaam yesterday that some companies have shown interests of trading at the country’s commodity exchange but have not been issued with licences.

“The preparations for the Tanzania Mercantile Exchange (TCX) have reached advanced
stage ready for the takeoff in May this year. Companies wishing to trade as commodities
dealers at the exchange are invited to register at the CMSA,” he said.

The TCX is expected to start by trading in coffee, cashew nuts, sesame, rice, sunflower
and probably maize currently traded under warehouse receipt system.

A commodity exchange is a central place where sellers and buyers meet to transact in
an orderly and organised fashion, with clearly specified and transparent rules.

The government backs commodity exchange as an answer to market challenges.

The training of the first commodities dealers, about 60, is ongoing and will end this
July and licensing them will follow thereafter.

The Parliament passed the bill for the establishment of the TCX after amendiing the CMSA law of 1994 to become Capital Markets and Commodities Exchange Act.

The exchange would provide a marketplace where buyers and sellers meet to trade
and be assured of quality, delivery and payment.

Experts in agro-business have it that the exchange will liberate farmers from poverty
through exposure to reliable domestic and export markets.

Liberalisation has its benefits mainly attributed to price determination as a result of market
forces of demand and supply.

Once farmers know what the market price is, they can enjoy fairer negotiations with
purchasers and can make more informed judgments on what to invest in the future and how to market it.
