More women, more democracy: New ideas for 2007 elections

This project included public deliberation Forums that summoned important sectors from the academy, public and private sectors, political parties, media, and social and community areas. They all came from Ibague, Monteria, Pereira, Tunja, and Villavicencio. In addition, it included the publishing of More Women, More Democracy, a text on the imaginary of the political and gender participation based on results of election processes in 5 Departments of Colombia.

The results of elections on the 28 of October 2007 confirmed the initial assumptions that originated this initiative. Institutional, Individual, and cultural reasons seem to explain low participation of women in Colombia. First, in spite of the regulatory frame, political willpower is missing to impulse it like it is evident in the low channeling of interests and expectations of the women political participation on behalf of political parties; in addition, there is a low profile allocation for governmental programs of political participation promotion with gender equity. Second, there is a feeling of low political efficiency of women, as well as a lack of interest for these topics on behalf of women in general. There is also a feeling of their ignorance about rights and duties. Finally, the discredit of political activity, understood as favoritisms, whose role has been assigned to men, has caused low women representation for popular elections.

Even though the operation model of the Plan has institutional controls applicable to contracting processes and quality control standards using auditing procedures, it is necessary to improve active participation of beneficiary communities, articulating institutional and social work at departmental and municipality level to promote control mechanisms that guarantee transparency in administration of resources. These mechanisms must lead to focus, quality, opportunity, and right destination of supplies so that they contribute to a better development of children and youngsters during their first stage of school training.

Institutional Action and Youth Social Control of Public Resource Investment on Health 2004 - 2005

The General Social Security Health System is made up of a Contributory Regimen and a Subsidized Regimen. The last one was created to assure the entry to the system, on equitable conditions, of the poorest and vulnerable sectors of the Colombian population.

In 2004, official numbers showed 13.856.927 citizens with level 1 and 2 of the Identification System of Beneficiaries (SISBEN in Spanish) that had protection for their health care needs because they were affiliated to the Subsidized Regimen. This subsidy to assist the health of poor and vulnerable population of the country had over 2.825 million Colombian pesos in 2005 in resources which were near 1.228 million dollars, being the largest health investment of the government ever.

Factors as fraud and low technical ability to identify beneficiaries of the Subsidized Regimen; lack of understanding of the functioning of the General System of Social Health Security on behalf of institutions and communities; and lack of technical and operative ability of institutions to execute control timely and permanently, all have favored deviation of resources, creating distrust and uncertainty in the citizens toward State Institutions and Health Subsidized Regimen Administrators.

Many problems lie beneath each factor. For the first one, politicizing and discretional action added to lack of training of those who process the SISBEN survey, and fraud within the Subsidized Regimen Administrators have generated serious distortion to focus the real beneficiary population of the Subsidized Regimen.

For the second one, the excessive and changing regulation and specialized language not accessible to every body have made difficult the administration of institutions and citizen knowledge on ways to gain admission to Subsidized Regimens. Finally, disarticulation among control organisms plus lack of awareness of social control as a real possibility of citizen participation in the budgetary process, have caused inefficiency in control institutions at local and national level and thus, improper assignation of resources.

For this reason, the project “Institutional Action and Youth Social Control of investment of Public Resources of Health ” focused its efforts to supervise the allocation and administration of resources assigned to subsidize health care of poor and vulnerable population in 15 provinces of the department of Boyaca and 58 suburbs of the city of Ibague by the development and application of an articulated methodology of youth social control and institutional action for the strengthening of transparency to assign resources at local level.
