Hellere rig og rask end syg og fattig

Vi har spurgt Stig Larsen, som både er kandidat til kommunalbestyrelsen i Albertslund og Hovedstadens regionsråd, hvordan det står til med sundheden i Albertslund.

Stig Larsen, kandidat til kommunalbestyrelsen og regionsrådet.

Det er et meget bredt spørgsmål. Befolkningen i Albertslund går meget mindre til lægen end i resten af regionen, men det betyder desværre ikke, at de er sundere, for samtidig bliver de indlagt på hospitalet oftere. Der er stor ulighed på sundhedsområdet. En mand fra gruppen af de 25% mest velstående lever 10 år længere end en mand fra gruppen af de 25% fattigste. Det er en forskel, som er fordoblet de seneste 20 år. Og i virkeligheden er forskellen endnu større. I DR-dokumentaren “En syg Forskel” viser de, at forskellen er 13 år mellem det socialt belastede Aalborg Øst og den velstående bydel Hasseris. Så store forskelle ser man ikke i Albertslund men levealderen er 3 år lavere i Glostrup end i Albertslund. Hvis man ser samlet på Vestegnen, så står det sløjt til med sundheden.

Men politikerne på Christiansborg siger jo vi skal arbejde længere, fordi vi lever længere?

Man skal passe på med statistik. Det er korrekt, at gennemsnitslevealderen er steget. Men det er kun sandt for den mest velhavende halvdel af befolkningen. Resten lever ikke længere end man gjorde for 20 år siden. Så det er faktisk kun den rigeste halvdel af befolkningen, der burde arbejde længere, hvis man skal følge logikken inde på borgen. Det er så også den gruppe som har opsparing nok til at kunne pensionere sig selv tidligt.

Er der nogen grupper som er særligt udsatte?

Folk med en psykiatrisk diagnose lever 14 år kortere end gennemsnittet, så her er en gruppe, hvor der er plads til forbedringer. Vi ved også, at den fattigste del af befolkningen går mindre til tandlægen og at de derfor er i risiko for at miste deres egne tænder. Igen, folk der mangler deres egne tænder, lever kortere end dem som har dem hele livet. Der følger flere alvorlige sygdomme med at have dårlige tænder, så som kredsløbsforstyrrelser, og det kan man jo nemt dø af. Det giver derfor god mening at forbedre tandsundheden hos f.eks. kontanthjælpsmodtagere.

Du sagde tidligere, at Albertslund har mange hospitalsindlæggelser. Kan man gøre noget for at nedbringe antallet?

Når tallet er højt hænger det sammen med mange genindlæggelser og fordi folk fejler mere end bare en ting. Region Sjælland har i samarbejde med Lolland kommune gode resultater med en mere målrettet indsats i hjemmeplejen, som mærkbart har reduceret antallet af genindlæggelser. Men også en social indsats, så folks økonomi og boligsituation kommer i orden, reducerer antallet af genindlæggelser. Enhedslisten på Vestegnen vil meget gerne etablere et tværkommunalt samarbejde med regionen for at forbedre sundheden på Vestegnen. Det er en opgave, som Albertslund ikke kan løfte alene og problemet er også bredere end Albertslund.

Skal folk ikke bare holde op med at ryge og drikke?

Ha ha, den gamle traver. Jo, rygning er ikke godt for sundheden, men der er jo en grund til at folk ryger, så det er ikke bare lige. Derfor skal kommunen også tilbyde gratis rygestopkurser, men rygning er ikke den eneste årsag til dårlig sundhed, så det skal ikke være en sovepude for ikke at gøre noget ved de øvrige årsager. Og alkohol, flere undersøgelser viser at de mest velhavende også er dem som forbruger mest alkohol, så det er næppe årsagen til overdødeligheden blandt de fattigste.

Hvilke andre årsager?

Jeg har nævnt nogen af dem tidligere, men vi ved også, at partikelforurening fra trafikken og brændeovne dræber. Jernbanestrækningen mellem Glostrup og Høje Taastrup har den højeste koncentration af partikler i København takket være DSB’s diesellokomotiver. Folk med diabetes med dårlig forståelse for sygdommen og behandlingen dør også tidligt. Ligeledes er trafikstøj og dårligt arbejdsmiljø med til at forkorte levealderen, sammen med fattigdom i al almindelighed.

Hvad skal Albertslund gøre?

Vi skal skrue kraftigt op for forebyggelsen. Vi har bygget et fint sundhedshus, og det skal være meget mere aktivt i byens sundhedspolitik. Vi skal også forberede os på, at syge i fremtiden bliver udskrevet meget tidligere. I fremtiden er man færdigbehandlet fra hospitalet, mens plejen overlades til kommunen. Albertslund er dårligt forberedt til den ændring. Og så skal vi samarbejde med de øvrige vestegnskommuner og regionen for at forbedre sundheden blandt de fattigste borgere. Derudover skal vi gøre en indsats for at opspore f.eks. demens blandt borgere med anden etnisk baggrund. Flere undersøgelser viser, at denne gruppe “gemmes væk”, men ofte er opgaven med at passe disse en større opgave end familien kan håndtere og de får ikke den korrekte behandling.

Men den allerstørste opgave er at bekæmpe fattigdommen.

Terrorens baggrund

De seneste års terror i Europa, senest Manchester og nu London er grusomme handlinger, som rammer de uskyldige. Det kan være yderst svært at forstå den bagvedliggende bevæggrund til disse handlinger. Hvad er det som gerningsmændene ønsker at opnå ved deres handlinger?
Hvis vi skal forstå dette må vi se indad, vi har i høj grad selv skylden for det som sker. Vi har tilladt en ny økonomisk verdensorden at råde ukontrolleret. En verdensorden hvor den økonomiske udbytning af den tredje verden er stærkere end nogensinde, men også en udvikling hvor de fattigste i Europa bliver fattigere og fattigere. En udvikling som bliver værre af import af billig arbejdskraft. En import som sker under forskellige betegnelser, men har samme baggrund: Armod.
Samtidig har vi tilladt en militær udbygning hvor vi foretrække at løse konflikter militært frem for diplomatisk. Men den militære udbygning bruges også til en neokolonialisme, hvor vi i Vesten øger vores indflydelse i alle hjørner af verden. Vi har også tilladt at Israel har holdt Palæstina ulovligt besat i 50 år. med en grusom undertrykkelse af det palæstinensisk folk til følge. Vi har tilladt, og medvirket til, at Israel har sat hele regionen i brand. Libanon, Irak, Libyen, Syrien og vi venter kun på Iran. Alt dette til gavn for den zionistiske drøm om et Storisrael. Alt dette i håbet om at holde olien flydende.
Vi støtter med den ene hånd diktatorerne i Saudi Arabien og Bahrain, som finansierer terroren. Vi støtter dem som drager fordel af terroren og vi skaber den sociale kontekst hvor man kan rekruttere folk til at udfører terroren.
Så den virkelige løsning på terroren er ikke mere politi, mere militær og mere overvågning. Løsninger er at rydde op i det rod vi har skabt ude i verden. Løsningen er at rydde op i det sociale armod vi har skabt i vores egen verden.

Den hemmelige sundhedsreform

Er der nogen der kan huske lægekonflikten fra foråret? Er der nogen der kan huske hvad den handlede om? Er der nogen der kender formålet med at bruge mia. på supersygehuse? Er der nogen der kender regeringens sundhedspolitik? Hvorfor bygger kommunerne sundhedscentre?

Først og fremmest, denne plan er ikke regeringens men et left over fra Lars  Løkke, og formålet er besparelser, dårligere service og favorisering af privathospitaler. Den rigtige adresse er nok Moderniseringsstyrelsen, som så meget andet hemmeligt for tiden. Opbygningen af sundhedscentre har stået på siden 2006 og har været understøttet af staten med puljemidler.

De nye sygehuse er ikke super, de har 15-20% færre senge end de nuværende. De er bare superhurtige til at sende folk ud når de er behandlet. Patientpleje vil ikke længere være en hospitalsopgave, den opgave flyttes til sundhedscentrene. Derved kommer Danmark på niveau med Sverige med 2,7 seng pr. 1000 indbyggere mod Danmarks nuværende 3,5 seng pr 1000 indb. Begge tal er de laveste i EU selv om antallet af senge er faldet i hele EU.

Lægekonflikten havde to hovedpunkter: Lægeklinikker drevet af private firmaer og plejeopgaven som regionerne ikke vil betale lægerne for at udføre. Salgsargumentet med de firmadrevne lægeklinikker var mangel på praktiserende læger i udkantsdanmark. Det holder bare ikke sammen med at der bygges sundhedscentre med lægeklinikker i alle byerne. Desuden har regionerne allerede i dag mulighed for at oprette klinikker og ansætte læger. En ordning der også bliver brugt i stor udstrækning i de tyndt befolkede områder, hvor der er dårlig økonomi i at oprette en privat praksis.

Det andet punkt, plejeopgaven. Der ville ikke være meget sparet hvis man skulle kompensere lægerne for opgaven, men når opgaven overgår til sundhedscentrene med billigere personale, hænger historien sammen. For sundhedscentrene bliver ikke bemandet med specialuddannede læger men med nye kandidater ofte hentet ind fra udlandet. Sundhedscentrerne indgår nemlig heller ikke i turnus for uddannelse af nye læger i de nuværende planer.

Trods alle besparelserne hænger økonomien ikke sammen i planen, alene hovedstadsregionen mangler mindst 4 mia. Det har bl.a. ført til at det nye hospital i Hillerød planlægges uden køkken. Men når patienterne ikke skal plejes skal de vel heller ikke spise.

Desuden er der spørgsmålet om  statens afgang til patientjournaler, som er en nyskabelse i loven. Læs artikel i Information.
Patient-lægeforholdet er ændret. Patienten bliver til klient i det offentlige system

Men har vælgerne valgt denne politik, eller er den bare kommet ud af det blå?

International Women’s Day (Kvindernes internationale kampdag) #WomensDay

International Women’s Day, or the lesson of no rights without struggle.

  • March 8, 1857 – women textile workers in New York were fired on by the army while demonstrating for a shorter work week.
  • August 1907 – the idea of an annual demonstration in support of working women and women’s rights was first proposed by Clara Zetkin at a caucus of socialist women prior to the Second International annual meeting in Germany.
  • March 8, 1908 – women workers in the needle trades marched through New York City’s Lower East Side to protest child labor, sweatshop working conditions, and demand votes for women.
  • February 28, 1909, Women’s Day rally in New York. It was organized by the Socialist Party of America in remembrance of the 1908 strike of the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union.
  • 1910 – proposal by Clara Zetkin, at the International Socialist Congress in Copenhagen, designating March 8 be observed annually as International Women’s Day, in recognition of the 1908 demonstration by New York needle trades workers.
  • March 19, 1911 – Alexandra Kollontai helps organize the first International Women’s Day in Germany. Meetings and demonstrations were also held in several other European countries. The date was chosen to commemorate the 1848 promise (not kept) by the Prussian king to introduce votes for women.
  • March 8, 1917 (Feb. 23 on the Julian calendar) – Russian women marched in Petrograd to demand bread and peace. With the half a million Russian workers already on strike, the demonstration by the women forced the resignation of Czar Nicholas II and ignited the February Revolution.
  • 1922 – At Clara Zetkin’s urging, Lenin established International Women’s Day as a holiday.
  • March 8, 1968 – Chicago women revived the celebration of International Women’s Day in the USA.
  • 1975 – March 8 was recognized as International Women’s Day by the United Nations.

1908Womens_demo[1]
International Women’s Day (March 8) was initially inspired by a New York City demonstration on March 8th, 1857, of women garment and textile workers who were protesting low wages, the twelve-hour workday, and uncompensated increased workloads. Although their march was brutally broken up by the police, they repeated their call for improved working conditions and equal pay for all working women as they formed their own union in March 1860. A subsequent demonstration of thousands of women workers in the “needle trades” on March 8, 1908, called for child-labor protection legislation and women’s suffrage in addition to their long-standing demands. ( Mombaibar.com) 8.martsffaner[1]
In 1907 women sweatshop workers marched in New York and thus the first International Women’s day was born The real inspiration for International Women’s Day emanated in the USA. The first ‘Women’s Day’ was organized by American women socialists on February 28th 1907 to demand political rights for working women and was celebrated for the first time in New York. It honored the thousands of women involved in the numerous labour strikes in the early twentieth century in many major centers such as Montreal, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York. These women protested and rallied for the right to vote, a decent wage, and an end to sweat shops and child labour. (womenaid.org) 800px-Clara_Zetkin_Blatt4[1] tumblr_m0jfoeUUab1rpkenpo1_250[1] Clara Zetkin

The first national Women’s Day was observed on 28 February 1909 in the United States following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America. In August 1910, an International Women’s Conference was organized to precede the general meeting of the Socialist Second International in Copenhagen. Inspired in part by the American socialists, German Socialist Luise Zietz proposed the establishment of an annual ‘International Woman’s Day’ (singular) and was seconded by fellow socialist and later communist leader Clara Zetkin.

Russia 1913
The article ‘Women’s Day’ by Alexandra Kollontai was published in the newspaper Pravda one week before the first-ever celebration in Russia of the Day of International Solidarity among the Female Proletariat on 23 February (8 March), 1913. In St Petersburg this day was marked by a call for a campaign against women workers’ lack of economic and political rights, for the unity of the working class, and for the awakening of self-consciousness among women workers.

Strange facts:
The building, in Copenhagen, where The Match Day was adopted, People’s house, was bought by a Christian sect called House of the Father (faderhuset) and 1 th of marts 2007 demolished. Until then the building was used as a open youths culture house. The site is still currently unused. (wikipedia) jagtvej_69_folkets_hus[1] 8350802-4f5bce0f3f5db9b1c80f4a921dbd4739[1]

What about the future?
Many try to change the 8th of March away from a fight for solidarity and equality, to an individualized feminist ‘here I am’ performance and the class struggle aspects are largely alienated.
It is about time that women again take the lead in the struggle to shorter working hours.
One of the more colorful is this, ‘Beautiful women eat for free‘ which of cause is just a gimmick to advertise the restaurant but ends up as sexism.

Feminism and Women’s Legal Rights in Egypt
Feminism in Egypt goes in two directions, state feminism and activism feminism:

State feminism:

The NCW was the quintessential expression of state feminism in Egypt in the past ten years. In the past this organization formed in 2000 by presidential decree with first lady Suzanne Mubarak as its patron and first secretary general was the ultimate expression of state feminism in Egypt. Having claimed this it must be noted that state feminism was actually a term coined in the Nasser-era in relation to his policies in favor of integrating women into the workforce.

Activism feminism:
Is of course many thing but Mona Eltahawy is a fine example of the modern feminism and activist in Egypt and the Middle East. She  is an award-winning columnist and an international public speaker on Arab and Muslim issues. She is based in New York and Cairo.

Kan man spare penge på digitalisering?

Kan det offentlige? 

Politikere er helt pjattede med at digitaliserer alting, ud fra en forestilling at IT altid vil give besparelser. Kan det så passe?

IT er maskiner, og som sådan adskiller de sig ikke fra andre maskiner som erstatter en mere håndværkpræget produktion.
Da aviserne gik fra bly til fotosats, betød det ikke at avisen satte sig selv, men at de håndværksusdannede blysættere kunne erstattes af andre uden deres specielle viden. I praksis betød det deres arbejde blev flyttet op på redaktionen. Sparede aviserne penge? Ja for man erstattede en gruppe ansatte med noget billigere eller arbejdet blev pålagt andre ansatte man havde i forvejen. Dertil skal også lægges at IT-baseret fotosats er mere produktivt end en Linotype blysættermaskine.
Det var altså ikke IT som sådan der skaffede besparelsen, men en ny og mere produktiv maskine.

Der kan være andre årsager til at digitaliserer. Det er ikke nødvendigvis billigere at registrerer biblioteksbøger på en PC frem for kartotekskort, men det giver mange flere muligheder for at søge på bøgerne. Der kan optræde en umiddelbar besparelse, men den vil ofte blive spist op at prisen på de nye maskiner og ansatte til at betjene de mange ny funktioner man får adgang til.
Men biblioteker er ikke varefremstilling, hvor man kan erstatte håndværkere med ufaglærte, her bliver IT bare et nyt medie.

Og så er vi tilbage til politikernes tyrkertro på at IT er lig med besparelser. Man må ellers formode de var blevet klog af skade. Rejsekortet er dyrere i drift end papirbilletter. Polsag blev skrottet før det blev taget i brug og Den digitale Tinglysning indregnede man besparelsen på forhånd og fyrede folk. Det betød at brugerne mistede milliarder i renteudgifter da systemet ikke virkede, og der ingen var tilbage der kunne lave det i hånden.
De ovenstående eksempler viser alle at man ikke skal forvente besparelser ved at flytte medie når man ikke kan fjerne de personer der udfører arbejdet. Polsag vil jo ikke kunne erstatte en politibetjent med en ufaglært. Og der hvor man oplever besparelser er det først og fremmest fra centralisering af funktionen. Man øger altså afstanden mellem borger og staten, men det kunne man jo have gjort uden IT.

Derfor kan det undre at politikerne nu er gået i selvsving for at indfører evalg som de begrunder i besparelser. Valg er ikke en vare der skal fremstilles. Dem der udfører arbejdet er i vid udstrækning frivillige der bare skal have noget smørebrød og en sodavand.
Og erfaringerne fra udlandet er tvivlsomme i lighed med erfaringerne fra andre offentlige digitaliseringer. Dertil er der de politiske aspekter f.eks. gennemsigtighed i valghandlingen og mulighed for at verificerer resultatet, altså tælle stemmesedlerne igen.

Vil man læse mere om erfaringerne fra udlandet findes det her, og vil man ved mere om baggrunden for det papir så er det  her. Og meget meget mere her.

Konklusion:
Man skal vælge at digitaliserer hvis det giver mening, ikke fordi det er moderet og smart, eller løser et lille delproblem der er andre løsninger på. Og så kan det være en god ide at lade de andre lave fejltagelserne og lære af dem. Det er ikke alle ting som giver mening at digitalisere – valghandlingen er en af dem.
