Understanding the drivers of Public Health in Slums-by Enrique Backhaus C and Meriem Bourada

There are two major shortcomings in current healthcare systems: Insufficient recognition of (1) the human dimension in health and (2) of the need to tailor the health service’s response to the specific communities and individual situations. This results in health inequality. In addition, misunderstanding the values and perceptions of slum dwellers enhances the probability of outbreaks of infectious diseases.

Telecommunications in Harare-by Jerrel Yzer and Tom de Booij

The communication system in Harare is outdated, which means that the availability and quality of telecommunication services is limited. Another problem the city of Harare faces is urbanization: The area and inhabitants of the city of Harare are growing rapidly. Our client, the Telecommunication Operators Association of Zimbabwe (TOAZ) looks after the interests of the operators in the telecom sector. This means they have to provide good working conditions for the operators, but also a good infrastructure for the telecom sector. TOAZ wants to improve the infrastructure of the telecom network, because this should restore the economy and lower the unemployment rate. Strangely, nothing happened.
