NDX wound up

first_imgINTERNATIONAL joint venture freight operator NDX is to be wound up, following the transfer of its operations to German Railway’s intermodal subsidiary Transfracht International (TFGI) on September 1. NDX was set up in 1996, with DB holding a 50% stake, Netherlands Railways 25% and CSX 25%. It launched its first service in January 1997 using chartered rolling stock. NDX attempted to secure its foothold in the European market by attractive pricing, but TFGI Managing Director Manfred Riess said on August 20 that he would not be able to keep the same pricing policy for NDX customers in 1999.TFGI will integrate NDX routes into its own network: a twice-daily Rotterdam – Antwerpen shuttle, a thrice-weekly Rotterdam – München shuttle, and a twice-weekly train between Rotterdam and Barcelona. The Hamburg – Milano train ceased to run at the end of July. TFGI says its traffic will increase by 100000 TEU a year as a result of the takeover. NDX offices in Amsterdam, München, Hamburg and Antwerpen will close, but TFGI will retain the office in Barcelona. Riess said that the NDX takeover was not related to the June 23 announcement about the merger of DB Cargo and NS Cargo to form Rail Cargo Europe. However, after that announcement CSX decided to pull out of NDX.In 1997 TFGI carried 702000 TEU and earned revenue of DM350m. Riess expects to carry 800 000 TEU during 1998. olast_img read more

PAHO launches new study on migration of health workers in the Caribbean

first_imgNewsRegional PAHO launches new study on migration of health workers in the Caribbean by: – February 21, 2018 Tweet WASHINGTON, United States, Wednesday February 21, 2018 – The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) has launched a new study that will survey current migration trends of healthcare workers in the Caribbean (CARICOM) Region.The results of the survey will be used to develop recommendations and address the challenges that migration poses for the health sector of countries involved.The study will be conducted over a three-month period in 16 CARICOM countries and territories: Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname, Trinidad, Turks and Caicos Islands and the English-speaking islands of the OECS. The research team is planning to meet with representatives of ministries of health, labour and education, hospital managers, general practitioners, primary health care provider groups, amongst others.The outcomes of the survey will inform policy on health workforce migration in the Caribbean and contribute to the implementation of the WHO/PAHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel.“The region will soon face one of the most critical shortages in the labour market of health workers in its history if nothing is done to reverse the trend of low in-migration and high out-migration levels within the Anglo-Caribbean”, said Jessie Schutt-Aine, coordinator of the PAHO Subregional Programme for the Eastern Caribbean.“The undersupply of health practitioners will impact negatively on both the quality and sustainability of health systems, especially in the smaller islands of the region.”The migration and shortages of healthcare workers in the Americas, and particularly in the Caribbean region, are impacting significantly health systems and services, PAHO said. The problem is global in nature, with health workforce mobility increasing to meet the estimated 40 million new health care jobs required to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals related to health by 2030, according to the latest projections from WHO and the World Bank.The PAHO Office of the Caribbean Subregional Program Coordination, with support from PAHO’s Department of Health Systems and Services, is working to address migration-related shortages of human resources for health in the Caribbean.“The situation with regard to health care workers in the Caribbean and in most countries in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is critical, with many persons opting to leave the region for better working conditions, higher salaries, and better job security”, said Erika Wheeler, PAHO Subregional Advisor on Human Resources for Health.The recently approved PAHO Strategy on Human Resources for Universal Health urges countries to increase public investment in human resources for health, especially at the first level of care. The strategy aims to guide national policies to cover a shortfall of nearly 800,000 health workers in the region of the Americas. 34 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share Sharelast_img read more
