Remember, perhaps, that among the commitments undertaken by me in Ethiopia there is the pharmaceutical service four small clinics in the south of the country. The supply of drugs that generally we implement, by container, is for large quantities and individual specialties. In 2015 we sent in the southern hemisphere over 100 cubic meters of drugs. Ethiopia we need a richer variety of specialties and small quantities. The work that we have done with the help of the Order in 2015, was effective and excellent yield.
At the beginning of April I part the doctor in charge of the structures (Dr. Stefano Greys Order of Bologna) since the end of 2015 medical director of the Ethiopian-supported structures GSI Italy.
In anticipation of I would be able to ensure by 2016 the contribution of Perugia doctors with donations of medicinal samples, as well as possibly of consumer healthcare products and small efficient bathroom equipment, which is available to give we cater to the centers in Ethiopia and other southern countries.
I ask my colleagues to select packages that have expiration of less than five months. Just call the number 0743 49987, a.m. office hours or signal the availability at antonioloiacono@gsiitalia.org to concert the withdrawal of materials.

Con la presente siamo ad inoltrare a tutti gli iscritti l’Email pervenuta all’attenzione del Presidente dell’Ordine dei Medici Chirurghi e degli Odontoiatri di Perugia da parte del Dott. Antonio LOIACONO per una collaborazione per il rifornimento farmaceutico in ETIOPA.

 

Pregiatissimo Presidente,

avrei bisogno ancora una volta della sua collaborazione per uno dei progetti sanitari di GSI Italia (www.gsiitalia.org), di cui sono presidente e legale rappresentante.

Ricorderà, forse, che tra gli impegni da me assunti in Etiopia c’è il rifornimento farmaceutico di quattro piccole cliniche nel sud del Paese. Il rifornimento di farmaci che generalmente attuiamo, a mezzo container, è per grandi quantitativi e per singole specialità. Nel 2015 abbiamo inviato nel sud del mondo oltre 100 metri cubi di farmaci. Per l’Etiopia avremmo bisogno di una più ricca varietà di specialità e di piccoli quantitativi. Il lavoro che, con l’aiuto dell’Ordine abbiamo fatto nel 2015, è stato efficace e di ottima resa.

Ai primi del mese di aprile mi rientra il medico responsabile delle strutture (dr Stefano Cenerini dell’Ordine di Bologna) dalla fine del 2015 direttore sanitario delle strutture etiopi supportate da GSI Italia.

In previsione dell’incontro vorrei essere in grado di assicurare anche per il 2016 il contributo dei medici perugini con le donazioni dei campioni delle specialità, così come eventualmente, di prodotti sanitari di consumo e di piccola attrezzatura sanitaria efficiente, che si è disponibili a cedere ai Centri da noi assistiti in Etiopia e in altri Paesi del sud.

Chiedo ai colleghi di selezionare confezioni che abbiano scadenze non inferiori ai 5 mesi. Basta telefonare al numero 0743 49987, orario ufficio a.m. o segnalare la disponibilità all’indirizzoantonioloiacono@gsiitalia.org per concertare il ritiro dei materiali. Ove interessati al rilascio di una certificazione della donazione, GSI Italia, Ong con idoneità Mae, Ministero Affari Esteri, rilascerà una certificazione idonea anche ai fini fiscali. In questo caso si richiede ai colleghi la compilazione di una notula dei farmaci e dell’attrezzatura consegnata.

Caro presidente, la ringrazio vivamente ancora per la collaborazione.

Cordiali saluti,

Antonio Loiacono, medico, Spoleto.

Research Report Country Report INTERACT RR2014/05 The integration of migrants in Italy: an overview of policy instruments and actors by Elena Caneva from the Department of social and political studies, University of Milan

Seems Umbria offers higher standards of services: also a web site unfortunately only in Italian. Here an Abstract

 

“Despite the 2008 economic crisis and the increase in emigration flows, immigration to Italy has continued, albeit to a lesser extent than in previous years. In 2013 immigrants stood at 7.4% of the country population. Nevertheless, immigration is still considered a problem, even an emergency: political and public attention is often focused on illegal migration, whereas a well-structured integration policy discourse is nowhere to be seen. This paper offers an insight into this issue, giving an overview on integration policies in Italy: which social actors are involved in the formulation and implementation of these policies, and how the issue is discussed in public and political discourses. Mapping the main policy tools and social actors in migrant integration, the paper highlights how Italian integration policies are mostly concentrated on economic integration, whereas social and cultural policies remain marginal. The paper also shows that a gap between policies and practices may occur, due to failed or absent policies, which is largely compensated for by the intervention of non-state actors.”

Perugia, October 29 014 -Umbria is one of the Italian regions with the highest incidence of immigrants (+ 8.1% compared to the national average and 11.1% of the residents), mainly women (56%). But the region lies with a higher than the national average even for newborns (15.1%, 19.6% of births) and the presence of foreign students (almost 14,000 students, 14% of the total ), of which about 55% were born in Italy (the national average is 51.7%). Lower than the national average is instead given the Umbrian regarding the acquisition of Italian citizenship. And ‘what emerges from the “Statistical Report on Immigration 2014” in the chapter on Umbria, edited by Bigi and Francescaglia. The dossier, sponsored by the National Office Against Racial Discrimination, refers to 2013. Last year – according to the Report – foreigners living in Umbria were 99,922, of which 76,861 in the province of Perugia (which represent 11.6% of the local population) and 23,061 in the province of Terni (10.0%). Non-EU citizens residing legally is 68,715, of which 41,115 have allowed a long period (there were 37,845 at the end of 2012), while the rest has a permit to expire. Faced with a numerical presence of residents remained almost stable between 2012 and 2013, the proportion of domestic permits expire (decreased by about 3,000 units a year) and long-term permits (increased by almost 3,300) has changed considerably favor of the latter. This is explained on the one hand with the economic crisis has dampened growth of the flows, as confirmed by the decrease in the number of permits issued for the first time during the year (only in the province of Perugia’s been – according to data from the police headquarters – from 21,178 in 2012 to 19,650 in 2013, with a particular decrease of those for work: from about 15 thousand to just under 11,000), and the other with the search for a stabilization for himself and his family, as also indicates number of family reunification (13,300). Among the non-EU nationality represented more priority needs still Albania (16,209), followed by Morocco (10 928) and Ukraine (5,154). Among the EU, with about 23,113 residents, is Romania that confirmed its first place Umbria recording a new annual increase (they were 21,051 in 2012) after the peak reached in 2011 (24,321).
About 7,375 newborns in Umbria in 2013, while foreign (1,444, of which 1,156 in the province of Perugia and 288 in the province of Terni) accounted for 19.6% of the total with a figure above the national average (15.1% ). Are, finally, the acquisition of Italian citizenship 1,518 (1,174 in Perugia and 344 in Terni), averaging 15.8 per 1,000 foreign residents (the national average is 21.6 per thousand).
Over time, the socio-economic characteristics of the region have made Umbria very attractive for migrants, but with the economic crisis, the labor market has changed in Umbria, especially hard hit the component of male workforce (both Italian and foreign) . In 2013 new hires were down for immigrants (-1.3%) as they recovered slightly to Italians (0.7%) and unemployment is also increased more for foreigners than for natives (the rate of immigrants stood at 20.7%, nearly 12 points higher than that of Italian, 8.5%), so that foreigners now account for nearly a third of the unemployed. In 2013, for those born abroad, the balance between hiring and termination of employment was negative (surplus of discontinued) to 2,942 units, with the exception of the agricultural sector, with a particularly steep decline for the industry (-6 , 4%). Unlike the male presence of foreign women workers has continued to grow and, unlike a few years ago, in 2012 was much higher (17.1%) than men (11.8%). In Umbria, 12.2% of foreign-born is active in agriculture (against an overall average of 2.9%) and 35% in industry (28%), while “only” 48.2% in the tertiary (69.1%). The foreign workers for 57.5% are employed in community services and personal services, to 30% in the hotel business and catering. Among men ofoto(14)ver a third (33.6%) work in construction, 24.1% in agriculture and a fifth in the tourist-hotel sector.

As many as 71% of foreign-born workers are employed in micro businesses (1-9 employees), 47% in unskilled occupations (as in growth compared to the past), with lower wages on average by 30% compared to the Italians and monthly salaries that, as a result of the crisis, they have fallen more than those of the Italians (-8.4 percentage points versus -6.2).
Among the 15 most numerous nationalities of Umbria, the Chinese have the highest employment rate (68%); a rate still above 50% is held by the Tunisian authorities, Romanian, Macedonian, Moldovan and Indian, while a rate below 40% characterizes the Moroccan community, Ecuador and Nigeria.
Umbria firms immigrants are 7.8% of the total (national average 8.2%), with a positive balance between those initiated and closed during the year (+271 units, or + 3.3%; the the national average is 4.1%) and in contrast with the Italian companies (-1.4%), mainly in construction (31%) and trade (30%). Holders of individual firms (representing 80.4% of all those immigrants) come mostly from Morocco, Romania, Albania and China. And ‘the Romanian community to have sent more remittances to their country (21.6 million euro, 32.9% of the total amount left for other countries from the region: 65.7 million euro), followed by Moroccans ( 4.3 million), Albania (3.5 million), Ecuador (3 million).
With regard to the students of foreign origin, who in Umbria an incidence greater than 9.0% of the national average, the data confirm the strong presence of the second generation, with peak incidence in the nursery and primary schools (a trend confirmed in the last 4 years). Especially foreign students 3,645 are in pre-school (where they account for 15.3%, of which 89% were born in Italy); 5,781 in the primary (incidence of 14.8% to 71.1% were born in Italy); 3,637 in the secondary level (15.5%, of which 41.0% was born in Italy and 4,278 in the secondary level (11.6% to 15.6% were born in Italy). As for the address chosen in high school: 24.8% attended a high school (since an increase compared to previous years, which amounted to 34.8% in the province of Terni, against a national average of 20.4%), while the the vast majority has been moving towards a vocational school (36.6%, with a peak of 37.5% in the province of Perugia) or technical. The foreign students from Europe (10,575) account for 61.0% of the total and including stand Albanians (3,877), Romanians (3,609) and Macedonian (967). The Africans (3,884), mainly from Morocco (2447), Tunisia (281) and Algeria, accounting for 22.4% of the total, from the American 9% and Asia 7.5% of the total.

Hundreds of migrants have drowned in the Mediterranean this month, amid a surge in overcrowded boats heading for Europe from Libya.

The flow of desperate migrants from North Africa hoping to reach Europe is already much higher than in the same period last year.

Italy is on the frontline and has urged its EU partners to do more to help.

At an emergency summit on 23 April EU leaders pledged to beef up the bloc’s maritime patrols in the Mediterranean, disrupt people trafficking networks and capture and destroy boats before migrants board them.

However, any military action would have to conform with international law. The chaos in war-torn Libya remains a huge problem.

Championing the rights of poor migrants is difficult as the economic climate is still gloomy, many Europeans are unemployed and wary of foreign workers, and EU countries are divided over how to share the refugee burden.

The Association Ramus Oleae administered by immigrants for immigrants, a partner of small farmers, volunteers and organizations, offers them the opportunity to acquire the skills necessary for a successful integration in the area of Perugia. A series of programs will give support to refugees who would otherwise be without a job and marginalized by society.
The programs consist of:
Basic course in Italian language focused on work and job search strategies
• Training refunded in the care and maintenance of trees in collaboration with local farmers
• Opportunity to work within our network of farmers and producers in the agricultural sector
Cultural Mediation
Awakening awareness and intercultural awareness through workshops with the Umbra Institute
• Support medical, psychological and legal free or low cost offered by our network of volunteers

In addition, the organization plans to launch a social brand of olive oil, certified as organic and DOP. The programs listed above can be financed with the help of collateral, sponsorships from companies and individual donations.

In partnership with family-owned farms in the nature reserve of Lake Trasimeno, we hope to restore and give back to the production multitude of abandoned olive trees in the area. By doing this, we will try to give a new life to the production of crafts, the local economy, heritage and landscape.

Developing a sustainable model, educational and economic non-governmental, easily repeatable throughout the country, Ramus Oleae aims to reduce racism and to increase solidarity between refugees and the native Italian population.

EU and migration

In this three-part special edition of Perspectives we look at Europe’s recurring summer migrant tragedy; the other side of the immigration debate that causes such division in Europe.

Soon the number of migrants italy has plucked from the cruel seas this year will go past 100,000. The annual trickle has become a flood of boats with Libya descending into chaos. This is where 90 percent of this summer’s north African exodus comes from.

A survey from Max Planck Odense Center on the Biodemography of Aging and Institute of Public Health –Department ofEpidemiology, Biostatistics and Biodemography, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

Compositional changes due to internal migration can modify the distribution of health outcomes, death rates, and socio-economic characteristics of a specific geographical area. Migration flows may affect patterns of socio-economic inequalities in mortality as well. However, despite these inequalities being an important social and geopolitical feature of an area, there is still little empirical evidence on this effect. This paper contributes to deepening the knowledge about this phenomenon by investigating whether post-war internal migration in Italy affected the pattern of mortality inequality by socio-economic status, from age 50 years onwards, in Turin, one of the main industrial areas of the country, to which many low-educated individuals from the southern regions migrated, seeking jobs in the car factories. Migrants might be selected in terms of robustness because of the healthy migrant effect. However, low-educated individuals are employed in heavier and riskier jobs. They thus undergo a faster health selection due to exposure to a higher mortality risk that selects the most robust individuals. This paper hypothesised that the interplay of these mechanisms might have produced a homogenisation process towards robustness of the population by reducing the unobserved heterogeneity in survival chances and that these processes affected men more than women, because women were likely to be more passive actors in the migratory decisions and less heavily involved in the industrialisation process. The results show that women have higher levels of heterogeneity in susceptibility to death and wider differentials mortality by education level than men, which both support the hypotheses. © 2014 The Authors.
