Part two in the series Paradise under Pressure/ Paradis under pres: https://paradis-under-pres.simplecast.com/

There is good reason to invest in tourism in Zanzibar. In 2019, it was expected that over half a million tourists would visit the island, which is only half the size of Funen island in Denmark. Tourists bring in money and growth, but research shows that, for example, Zanzibarians only have 11% of managerial jobs in restaurants and only 20% of tourism revenue goes to the local community, while 53% disappear from the island.

Danish:
Der er god grund til at investere i turismen på Zanzibar. I 2019 forventede man, at over en halv million turister ville besøge øen, som kun er halvt så stor som Fyn. Turisterne bringer penge og vækst, men forskningen viser, at zanzibarianere for eksempel kun har 11% af lederjobs på restauranter og kun 20% af indtægterne fra turismen går til lokalsamfundet, imens hele 53% forsvinder væk fra øen.

Nordic Global Health Talks #1: Self Help Plus - A game changer for global mental health (61:00)

There is a vast need for mental health support in populations affected by adversity globally. However, current evidence-based psychological interventions require significant resources and are highly challenging to bring to scale. This presentation will focus on an effort to address needs for mental health support through a WHO-developed guided self-help intervention. The presentation will discuss the adaptation and evaluation of the intervention with South Sudanese refugees in Uganda. Subsequently, the speaker will reflect on how this type of intervention may lend itself for integration in programming outside of the health sector to address the social determinants of mental health.

Nordic Global Health Talks is a monthly webinar series about global health research at Nordic universities, hosted by the Nordic Network on Global Health.

Plastic bottles are impossible to avoid when travelling for vacation to southern countries. In Zanzibar, thousands of plastic bottles are sailed in from the mainland every day. They float as waste everywhere on beaches, streets, and in between bushes, trees and tall grass.
In this episode, we will meet Aziza Biubwa of the State University of Zanzibar, a researcher in waste management, Justin Madho, who works for the waste company Zanrec and Sjani Müggenburg, director of Ozti East Africa - a company that has made furniture plastic screw cap.

Danish:
Plastikflasker er umulige at undgå, når du holder ferie i syden. På Zanzibar bliver tusindvis af plastikflasker hver dag sejlet ind fra fastlandet, men som affald flyder de overalt på strande, gader, og imellem buske, træer og højt græs.
I denne episode skal vi møde Aziza Biubwa fra State University of Zanzibar, som forsker i affaldshåndtering, Justin Madho, som arbejder for affaldsfirmaet Zanrec og Sjani Müggenburg, som er direktør for Ozti East Africa – et firma der har fundet ud af at lave møbler af plastikskruelåg.

According to the international hotels in Zanzibar, it is difficult to find qualified local workers who speak good enough English and have the right experience and education. But is it, in fact, an excuse used by tourism industry leaders not to live up to their responsibilities?

Danish:
Ifølge de internationale hoteller på Zanzibar, så er det svært at finde kvalificeret lokale arbejdere, som taler godt nok engelsk og har den rette erfaring og uddannelse. Men er det i virkeligheden en undskyldning som turistbranchens ledere bruger, for ikke at leve op til deres ansvar?

Professor Jes Søgaard, SDU, forklarer principper for Økonomiske evalueringer (ØE). Derudover gennemgås evalueringstyper, design og analyse, rapporterede mål fra ØE samt begrænsinger og faldgruber. Jes Søgaard taler om hvordan man kan udføre analyser, som så kan bruges til at tage stilling til hvordan man vælger behandlingsmetoder i forhold til økonomiske omkostninger. Et eksempel er at undersøge: "Hvad koster lungekræft i Danmark i behandlingsudgift?"
