Analysis: Scaling up accountability to communities
10 April 2014 (IRIN ), SMS feedback in Haiti; radio outreach in the Philippines; community helpdesks in Darfur; a Humanitarian Call Centre in Pakistan: many such initiatives boost communication with disaster-affected communities, and in some cases improve accountability to communities, but most remain at pilot project scale because they are difficult to scale up. Evidence of the benefits remains piecemeal and in some cases projects risk being tokenistic rather than meaningful, said participants at a meeting of the Active Learning Network for Accountability and Practice (ALNAP) in Addis Ababa last month.

Bearing neither uniform nor insignia, they are indistinguishable from the civilian population.

Curbing Myanmar’s spread of drug-resistant malaria
28 March 2014 (IRIN ), Efforts to halt the spread of drug-resistant malaria in Myanmar have delivered encouraging results through the private health sector, but health experts warn the disease cannot be won outside the public health system - and that the country is still a potential “gateway” for the spread of drug resistance.
