Pricing, subsidies and the poor : demand for improved water services in Central America by Ian Walker( )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

November 2000 Evidence from Central America's publicly owned and managed water supply companies indicates that the urban poor are ill served by current subsidy policies. The best way to improve water services for the urban poor, this study concludes, is for tariffs to reflect system costs and for consumption to be metered. This permits each household to determine how much it wants to spend on water while ensuring sustainability of services across the network. The attitudes of poor communities toward metering are generally positive. Reformulating tariff and subsidy policies is central to improving water and sanitation services in developing countries. The traditional model of state enterprise service provision, coupled with residential tariffs set well below the cost of service, has generally delivered unsatisfactory results. Low internal generation of funds has impeded expansion of networks into poor communities and has resulted in very poor services there. Most of the subsidy has benefited higher-income groups. Reformers have proposed private provision to improve efficiency, cost-reflective tariffs to permit the systems to meet demand, and better-targeted subsidies. But is there empirical evidence that existing subsidies are ineffective and that the poor could pay the full cost of water services? Analyzing household survey and water company data from cities of Central America and Venezuela, Walker, Ordoñez, Serrano, and Halpern confirm that: * Households without piped connections pay a lot for small amounts of water from "coping sources." * Most public water companies undercharge hugely, providing an implicit, generalized subsidy and accelerating their systems' decapitalization. * There is little income-related differentiation in consumption and therefore in effective piped water tariffs. Volume-based tariffs would generate cross-subsidies from the rich to the poor if the rich consumed more water. But the data indicate that consumption of piped water varies little with income, so most of the water subsidy is captured by the nonpoor. * Poor households that are not presently connected would clearly benefit from access to piped water supply. This would require increasing tariffs to cost-reflective levels. But where the urban poor already enjoy access, such tariff increases would have a disproportionate impact on this income group. This impact should be mitigated through better-targeted, temporary subsidies. * The poor are often willing to pay much more than the present tariff for access to piped water but not necessarily the full cost of the monthly consumption assumed by planners (30 cubic meters). If tariffs were set to cover long-run financial costs, many poor households would consume much less. Improving the design of tariff structures and extending metering to such households would permit them to regulate their expenditures on water by controlling their consumption. This paper--a product of the Finance, Private Sector, and Infrastructure Sector Unit, Latin America and the Caribbean Region--is part of a larger effort in the region to evaluate and disseminate lessons of experience in designing policies to improve the quality and sustainability of infrastructure services and to enhance the access of the poor to these basic services.

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia: mortality determinants in a Hispanic population by Pedro Serrano( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

OBJECTIVES: Determine which factors were associated with mortality in our patients, specifically whether ventilatory parameters and arterial blood gas could be used to predict outcome. The role of delaying surgery and the presence of contra lateral pneumothorax were also assessed. BACKGROUND: Mortality among babies born with congenital diaphragmatic hernia remains high. The associated pulmonary hypoplasia and hypertension account for most of the overall mortality. There is no uniform consensus as to which parameters predict outcome. METHOD: Study population consisted of thirty-two patients with CDH managed during a ten-year period. Retrospective data obtained included: perinatal data, postnatal complications, ventilatory parameter data, arterial blood gas, type and age of surgery. Ventilatory index, oxygenation index and arterial to alveolar oxygen difference (A-aDO2) within the first 24 hours of life and after surgical correction were compared among the 23 patients who underwent surgical correction. Timing of surgery and frequency of pneumothorax were compared between survivors and non-survivors. Epi-Info Software Package was used for statistic analysis. RESULTS: Overall survival was 40 per cent. Survival of surgically corrected infants was 61 per cent. Non-survivors had significantly higher A-aDO2 than survivors (p <0.05). No significant differences in pCO2, ventilatory index, or oxygenation index were identified between survivors and non survivors. Surgical repair performed after the first twenty-four hours of life, was associated with a higher survival rate (p <0.05). Fourteen patients (39 per cent) developed contralateral pneumothorax, eleven (79 per cent) of these died. CONCLUSIONS: (1) contralateral pneumothorax was associated with higher mortality, 2) A-aDO2 was a better prognostic indicator than pCO2, ventilatory index, or oxygenation index, 3) delaying surgical repair was associated with better survival rate.
