FundarThis video is part of a campaign known as “Las diez faltantes” (“The Ten Missing Ones”) to bring attention to the Mexican government’s spending priorities during the economic crisis. In 2009 the government spent 4,927.7 million pesos on official advertising – 501 percent more than in 2006, and more than the entire expenditure of the Ministry of Labor in the same year. To highlight the impact of government spending decisions, the Mexican nongovernmental organization Fundar outlined ten missing priorities to improve the use of public funds for healthcare and medication, increase spending on AIDS treatment, reduce out-of-pocket costs in healthcare, and increase the number of clinics and hospitals.

The IBP Presents the Findings of the Ask Your Government (AYG) Initiative at the Global Maternal Health Conference
Plenary 3 Video on Wednesday 1 September (minutes 25:24-40:01)Watch the International Budget Partnership presentation on the findings of the Ask Your Government (AYG) Initiative at the Global Maternal Health Conference in New Delhi, India. The AYG initiative was carried out in over 80 countries by almost 100 partnering organizations to request specific budget information directly related to maternal health interventions. While governments' responses varied widely, the overwhelming majority did not provide substantive information to their citizens. Furthermore, 11 countries with the highest maternal mortality rates in the world kept silent and ignored the requests posed by their citizens. In Nigeria, for example, information related to life-saving drugs was classified as "sensitive" and "controversial," in Yemen it was declared "private," and in Tajikistan the researcher was told "not to bother the Minister with such request.”

Where’s It Gone?” on the work one of its partners, MUHURI (Muslims for Human Rights), is doing to involve communities directly in monitoring the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) in Mombasa, Kenya.
