This is part of all the ideas for Venezuela in this blog.
7.1. START A GENERAL PROGRAMME ON BIRTH CONTROL:
Venezuela has one of the highest birth rates in South America. The government must carry out a campaign for reducing the growth rate. Among other things, the State must:
- Organise educational campaigns in all secondary schools regarding birth controls, informing about the huge problems for those girls who get pregnant too early and without a solid financial basis and denouncing how both men and women need to take responsibility for their children.
Whenever a hospital has to deal with a third-party and there is a bidding, this needs to be public and the process must be controlled by authorities that do not belonged to the hospital. Controllers should rotate.
7.3. DIGITIZE THE INVENTORY OF ALL HOSPITAL MATERIAL, MAKE REPORT OF THEFT IN HOSPITALS COMPULSORY:
Right now lots of people are stealing from hospitals: security workers, doctors, nurses. The honest people report the thefts, but the hospital administrators do nothing and the police much less. One should be able to track down the disappearance of material and make the police report on their findings of thefts. National police inspectors and the media should be able to check how many reports of thefts have been followed up.
