Support to Improve Maternal and Child Health
The operation will support among other activities: (i) quality improvements to maternal, neonatal, child, and reproductive health services at the primary as well as at the hospital level focusing on the areas with the highest concentrations of deaths: the focus here will also be on strengthening, among other strategies, Essential Neonatal Obstetrical Care (ENOC) and Emergency Obstetrical Neonatal Care (EONC); (ii) strengthening health service delivery capacity to increase coverage and use/demand for certain services and strengthen practices by the target population. Capacity building will also support the delivery of effective counseling services towards behavior change related to care-seeking for early prenatal and post-natal controls and attitudes towards institutional deliveries; and (iii) implementation of innovative financing schemes to overcome demand side barriers (such as transport related costs to access institutional delivery) faced by the targeted population and implementation of a reward system for improved performance by service providers

Programa Maior Cuidado: An Integrated Community-Based Intervention on Care for Older People
This report presents an overview of a novel community-based intervention for older people living in deprived neighbourhoods in the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte: Programa Maior Cuidado (PMC). Since 2011 PMC has been jointly run by the municipal Departments of Health and Social Assistance to support dependent older people living in vulnerable families. These families receive up to 20 hours of support a week from professional family care support workers. Health centres and social assistance posts hold joint monthly case reviews and work closely with family care support workers to anticipate and respond to new problems. Between 2011 and December 2022, 3,062 families had received support or were continuing to do so. Drawing on a set of qualitative and quantitative evaluations, we show that PMC operates effectively and appears to generate a range of positive effects. These effects include enhanced health and wellbeing of older people, reducing the stress and burden of family carers and improving the efficiency of outpatient and inpatient health service use. PMC also provides a valuable livelihood opportunity for the caregivers it employs. A cost analysis estimates that the monthly per capita cost of PMC in April 2023 was 916.2 reais (US$173), which is substantially less than alternative interventions. These positive evaluations have led Belo Horizonte municipality to extend the scheme and the Federal Ministry of Health to support similar pilots in new cities. Future evaluations of these pilot schemes will add to the available evidence about PMC and its potential suitability for other parts of Brazil and similar countries.

Nicaragua: generando impacto para mejorar vidas: resultados recientes en proyectos de acceso a salud y energia de poblaciones vulnerables financiados por el grupo BID
Las zonas más apartadas y vulnerables de Nicaragua han sido particularmente afectadas por la falta de acceso a servicios de salud y al suministro de energía eléctrica. Ambos son desafíos en los que se ha venido trabajando, con apoyo del Grupo BID, para ofrecer mejores condiciones de vida a las personas. Este documento recoge, de manera breve, algunos de los datos más destacados al respecto, desde la mejor cobertura en materia de atención médica y una importante reducción en las muertes materno-infantiles, hasta el aumento en la cobertura eléctrica a partir de fuentes renovables de energía.

BIDeconomics Panamá: panorama de oportunidades
Panamá es un referente de crecimiento para América Latina y el Caribe. Cerca de 6 por ciento ha sido el incremento promedio anual de su PIB entre 2000 y 2019. Incluso, pese a los desafíos postpandemia, el aumento promedio ha sido de 4 por ciento hasta 2023. Si bien este progreso ha acercado al país a los niveles de ingreso de economías más avanzadas, persisten retos significativos como los desequilibrios territoriales, el reducido espacio fiscal e insuficiencias en el gasto social, lo que ha conllevado a fuertes disparidades en el nivel de vida de la gente. En tal contexto, es esencial implementar una serie de medidas que reduzcan la desigualdad, faciliten la diversificación productiva y promuevan un manejo eficiente y sostenible de los recursos tanto financieros como naturales, especialmente el agua. Resulta clave apoyar a los sectores que han impulsado el crecimiento previo, a la vez que se eleva la calidad de vida de los panameños. Consolidarse como una economía de ingresos altos, de manera inclusiva y sostenible, es a la vez un reto inmenso y una oportunidad grandiosa. Este documento del Grupo BID, justamente, identifica oportunidades en tres pilares temáticos desarrollo humano, bases para la productividad y modernización institucional que pueden contribuir al cumplimiento definitivo de ese gran objetivo.
