Poor not consulted on poverty, New Era

Date: January 1, 1970
  • SHARE:

The article deals with comments made by the Deputy Director of the National Planning Commission at a poverty reduction discussion.

Trainer’s Notes: The article is a single source story, relying on comments made by the Deputy Director. HIV/AIDS is mentioned once as one of the challenges facing Namibia in combating poverty. There is no data of poverty and gender is simply ignored.
Training Exercises: Trainees should access Namibia data on poverty to see whether it is gender disaggregated. If so, trainees should include these statistics in the article, along with an analysis of how and why poverty affects women differently to men. Trainees should list alternative sources that can be included, including women, health care workers and community activists. Trainees should also include comments from a woman with HIV to ascertain the impact of poverty on her.
