Two years of COVID-19 pandemic: new report highlights 100 weeks of WHO/Europe’s efforts to protect lives and livelihoods

March 11, 2022 is a grim milestone as we mark 2 years since the WHO classified the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic – a health emergency that spans countries and continents. Since cases of COVID-19 were first reported, more than 6 million people have died from the disease globally, including more than 1.8 million in the WHO European Region.

New WHO/Europe report “One Hundred Weeks of Emergency Response, One Hundred Million Cases of COVID-19: Towards better COVID-19 outcomes in the WHO European Region” outlines achievements of the WHO/Europe COVID-19 Incident Management Support Team (IMST) – the mechanism activated to deal with emergencies – since its establishment in early 2020, when the first cases of COVID-19 were detected in the European Region, up to 2022. It also includes an overview of the work of the operational teams during this period, as they supported some Member States in the Region to meet the challenges of a global pandemic.

Quoted in the report, Dr Dorit Nitzan, former Regional Director for Emergencies for WHO/Europe, said: “The COVID-19 Incident Management Team has been the driving force behind WHO’s response /Europe to COVID-19 by generating knowledge and operationalizing it in countries with governments and partners”.

Working to meet country needs

The report details IMST’s work and the impact of its COVID-19 responses across various functions, including surveillance, public health and social metrics, risk communication and community engagement, clinical and health services, essential health services, vaccines and operations, showing how each of these pillars has contributed to meeting country needs in three key areas:

  • strategic, providing continuously updated technical guidelines and recommendations, combined with capacity building activities such as webinars and trainings;

  • technical, providing global and regional expertise, channeling financial resources and getting essential supplies to where they are needed most; and

  • operational, by providing ongoing country-specific support through field deployments and missions with technical experts, and through remote technical assistance.

Commenting on the launch of the report, Dr Gerald Rockenschaub, recently appointed Regional Director for Emergencies for WHO/Europe, said: “This new report highlights how much the expertise and flexibility of IMST over the past two years have been crucial in providing Member States with the most timely information and appropriate support to deal with a complex and constantly changing situation. Through solidarity, perseverance and patience, we can defeat this virus together.”

FAO Regional Conference focuses on innovation and digitalization to fight crop and livestock diseases and build resilience to climate and weather threats

Dhaka/Rome — Ministers and high-level delegates from across Asia and the Pacific gathered today to focus on improving nutrition, living conditions and livelihoods in the aftermath of the global pandemic, while addressing current threats related to climate and severe weather, and combating diseases and pests that affect crops and livestock in the most populated region of the world. Improving ecosystem responses in the Pacific Islands is another key topic.

The 36th Asia and Pacific Regional Conference (CAP), organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and hosted by the Government of Bangladesh, takes place in the capital, Dhaka.

Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina highlighted her country’s achievement of self-sufficiency in several key foods and noted that agriculture remains the “backbone” of the economy, providing 40% of livelihoods. of the working population. She called for “realizing food security and nutrition in the real sense of the word”, and she called for collaboration among countries in the region in areas such as education, biotechnology and green investments.

FAO Director-General QU Dongyu, who attended the regional conference in person, acknowledged the toll the global pandemic has taken on the lives and livelihoods of people in Asia and the Pacific. He noted that there was a long way to go for the region to end hunger and improve nutrition, pointing to a FAO report last year, which revealed that 40% of the population could not afford a healthy and nutritious diet.

Reversing many years of progress, hunger in Asia and the Pacific is on the rise again and inequalities are widening, especially between rural and urban populations, while too often women and young people are left behind. “The pandemic has forced us to reconsider our priorities and approaches and has underscored the importance of more sustainable and resilient societies, as well as the urgency of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals to ensure food, health, education, a healthy environment and a decent life for all,” the Director-General said in his statement to the Conference.

This has led to a movement to transform the region’s agrifood systems and make them more efficient, more inclusive, more resilient and more sustainable, he added.

The Director-General said FAO will work to achieve this through four regional priorities. They focus on transforming agri-food systems for sustainable production and healthy diets; accelerate the sustainable management of natural resources for biodiversity conservation and climate action; support inclusive rural transformation for sustainable agrifood systems and equitable rural societies, and build sustainable and resilient agrifood systems in Pacific Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

Scaling up digitalization in the food and agriculture sectors to transform agri-food systems

One of the main areas of focus of this APRC is the digitization of agriculture and food processes sweeping across Asia and the Pacific, and the potential they have for the region and the world, if further expanded. , to help transform agrifood systems in ways that also benefit smallholder farmers. This would support the achievement of the “four best”, as set out in the FAO Strategic Framework 2022-31: better production, better nutrition, better environment and better life for all, leaving no one behind.

FAO has been a leader in promoting digitalization and innovation in agricultural processes – from producers to processors, transporters, retailers and consumers – through FAO’s 1000 Digital Villages Initiative, through example, and the creation of a SIDS Solutions Platform like another.

“The 1,000 Digital Villages initiative aims to convert villages around the world into digital hubs to support accelerating rural transformation,” Qu said, noting that the initiative has been rolled out to 15 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Pacific and will facilitate small producers. ‘ access to knowledge and markets, while bridging the digital divide, including gender and rural divides.

This “will leverage the entrepreneurial spirit of youth and women in the region by creating an enabling environment and supporting the development of national e-agriculture strategies and digital tools and services. And I have great expectations for this region because there are so many “champion countries and you already have digital value, digital governance and digital economy in rural areas”, the Director-General said during his statement to the conference.

The regional conference agenda includes several high-level segments with ministerial roundtables.

Indeed, the conference “is an excellent opportunity to discuss national and regional priorities as well as pressing issues and needs in the region such as the impacts of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of agriculture, natural resource management, food security and nutrition,” said Mohammad Abdur Razzaque, MP, Minister of Agriculture of Bangladesh and President of APRC36.

“The gaps in our global agrifood system have been laid bare. The dots no longer connect,” said Hans Hoogeveen, Independent Chairman of the FAO Council. “We need transformative change, and we need it now. Transformative change through transformative action. There are no more excuses not to act.”

“We need broader innovation in the way we govern our food systems, locally, nationally and globally: what I like to call ‘governance innovation’,” said Gabriel Ferrero, Chairman of the Committee on World Food Security.

The FAO Director-General expressed his gratitude to the government and people of Bangladesh for hosting APRC36 in difficult times and for the participation of delegates who joined the meeting both virtually and in person in Dhaka.

Regional structural reforms to better serve Members

The Director-General highlighted that he had initiated institutional reforms to give FAO regional and sub-regional offices more flexibility to help them implement flagship initiatives and support the Organization’s efforts. Strategic framework 2022-2031.

As examples of this enhanced delivery, he cited nine countries in the region that are already participating in the Hand in hand initiative, which aims to increase agricultural production in areas with the highest rates of poverty and hunger. He also highlighted the 1,000 digital villages initiativewhich aims to reduce the digital divide faced by smallholders and rural dwellers, while the new One country one priority product initiative, focuses on products with unique qualities and offers significant opportunities for implementation in the region, Qu said.

More actions are to come, added the Director-General, as FAO develops its regional strategy on digital innovation and completes the Regional Technical Platform on Aquaculture, which will become a knowledge center on the subject, allowing countries around the world to benefit from the vast experiences gained in the Asia-Pacific region.

At its headquarters, FAO also hosts a Coordination Center carry out follow-up actions in the field after the UN Food Systems Summit 2021.

While the Asia-Pacific Regional Conference is convened every two years to seek the views and guidance of FAO member country governments in the region, it has broadened to become more inclusive of other actors, such as civil society organizations and the private sector, both of which participated in #APRC36.

It also demonstrated the understanding among the Bangladeshi people of the impact of heinous crimes, based on their own lived experience. This courageous approach of solidarity continues to be reflected in the assistance provided by Bangladesh to our work for justice for the Rohingya community,” the Prosecutor said.

The Prosecutor expressed his sincere gratitude to the authorities of Bangladesh for facilitating his visit. He also expressed his gratitude to non-governmental organizations and United Nations partners who had supported his direct engagement with survivors and affected communities in Cox’s Bazar.

The Prosecutor held a press conference in Dhaka at the end of his mission to Bangladesh, answering questions from the local and international media present. During the press conference, the Prosecutor announced his intention to make additional visits to Bangladesh to support and advance the work of his Office in this investigation.

The Prosecutor had the following message at the end of his visit:

“I am deeply grateful for the generosity and support shown to me by the people of Bangladesh and the Rohingya community during this visit. As I told the survivors of Cox’s Bazar: we are here to serve you and help make I leave here confident that with my Office’s renewed focus on this investigation, combined with the strengthened partnerships we have developed with survivors and national actors, we can now enter a phase of accelerated action. I hope and hope that this will ultimately lead to those who can be responsible for the atrocities committed against the Rohingya community and be held accountable according to law.”

Context:

In November 2019, ICC judges granted former prosecutor Bensouda’s request to open a full investigation into alleged crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC in the Bangladesh/Myanmar situation (read his statement following the authorization of the judges to continue an investigation by clicking on here).

Today, the Spanish Ambassador to Jordan, HE Mrs. Aránzazu Bañón Dávalos, visited the Palestinian refugee camp of Baqa’a in Jordan and witnessed the vital services provided by the Relief and Works Agency of United Nations for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Ms. Bañón was accompanied by the Acting Director of UNRWA and the Directorate of International Organizations of the Department of Palestinian Affairs, Ms. Heba Al Manni, the Director of UNRWA Affairs in Jordan, Ms. Marta Lorenzo and other UNRWA staff.

This visit follows the launch of the Project Improving the Environment in Palestinian Refugee Camps in Jordan, a multidimensional project aimed at improving living conditions in Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. The project, generously funded by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID) with an initial allocation of 500,000 euros in 2021, which will be increased in the coming years, adopts a strategic approach focused on participation and community empowerment through raising awareness on climate change and environmental sustainability.

This initiative, which will lay the foundation for improving the environmental health and living conditions of more than 400,000 Palestinian refugees in Jordan, is vitally important to support the Agency’s modernization efforts in line with global commitments. sustainable development goals (SDGs). The project is also in line with the Agency’s commitment to the protection of Palestinian refugees with disabilities, as evidenced by its principles of inclusion of persons with disabilities – non-discrimination, awareness, participation and accessibility – and in accordance with the Convention of the United Nations on the rights of persons with disabilities. Disabilities. UNRWA is also proud of its partnership with the Department of Palestinian Affairs within the Jordanian government, which undertakes critical environmental activities.

The refugee camp tour began at the UNRWA Baqa’a Preparatory School for Girls No. 1 and 2, where Ms. Bañón was briefed on the living conditions of the Palestinian refugee population in Jordan and recent developments in UNRWA operations in the Middle East. including the Agency’s successful adaptation to the COVID-19 crisis by ensuring the continued delivery of services to Palestinian refugees in the health, education and environment sectors.

During the meeting, Ms. Al Manni briefed the visitors on the situation of Palestinian refugees in the camps in Jordan and the role the department is playing in coordination with the camp service committees and UNRWA to ensure a standard of cleanliness. durable and quality for health. and refugee security, particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spain remains fully committed to the Palestinian cause and firmly believes that only the two-state solution can realize the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and create the conditions for Israel and Palestine to live together in peace and stability. In the meantime, the protection of Palestinian refugees and their rights remains of the utmost importance. UNRWA’s mandate and its work are crucial to the provision of basic services to refugees. Today, visiting Baqa’a, I see again the remarkable work that the Agency is doing in the fields of education and health, offering hope and opportunities to the young generation. I also welcome the progress made in achieving more sustainable management of water and energy resources. We are proud to contribute to this effort through the project we are launching in the field of environmental health with the aim of improving the living conditions of Palestinian refugees in the camps,” said Ms. Bañón.

“On behalf of the Agency, we highly appreciate the timely contribution received by the Spanish government. With this contribution, Spain is helping us bring real change to the lives of Palestinian refugees by investing in greening, quality water and infrastructure in Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan,” said Marta Lorenzo.

Spain began contributing to UNRWA in 1958 and has been a member of the UNRWA Advisory Commission since 2005. Spain is a strategic partner whose strong political support for the Agency has been consistent over the years . In 2021, the country’s contribution amounted to more than €17 million, including an extraordinary contribution of €3 million to the UNRWA program budget in response to the Agency’s financial shortfall in 2021.

Background information:

UNRWA faces an increased demand for services resulting from an increase in the number of registered Palestinian refugees, the extent of their vulnerability and their growing poverty. UNRWA is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions and financial support has been exceeded by growing needs. As a result, UNRWA’s program budget, which supports the delivery of basic essential services, operates with a large deficit. UNRWA encourages all Member States to work collectively to make every effort to fully fund the Agency’s program budget. UNRWA’s emergency programs and key projects, which also operate with large deficits, are funded through separate funding portals.

UNRWA is a United Nations agency established by the General Assembly in 1949 and mandated to provide assistance and protection to some 5.7 million Palestinian refugees registered with UNRWA in its five areas of operation. Its mission is to help Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip to realize their full human development potential, pending a just and lasting solution to their fate. UNRWA’s services encompass education, health care, relief and social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, protection and microfinance.

Former Hawaii Commission Executive Director Sentenced to 46 Months in Prison for Embezzling AmeriCorps Funds and Offering a Bribe in Exchange for CARES Act Grants | USAO-DC https://reservocation.com/former-hawaii-commission-executive-director-sentenced-to-46-months-in-prison-for-embezzling-americorps-funds-and-offering-a-bribe-in-exchange-for-cares-act-grants-usao-dc/ Tue, 22 Feb 2022 20:47:08 +0000 https://reservocation.com/former-hawaii-commission-executive-director-sentenced-to-46-months-in-prison-for-embezzling-americorps-funds-and-offering-a-bribe-in-exchange-for-cares-act-grants-usao-dc/ WASHINGTON – Stacy Higa, 58, a former civil servant from Hilo, Hawaii, was today sentenced in federal court to 46 months in prison for embezzling funds from AmeriCorps and also for offering a bribe in exchange for grants under the CARES Act. The announcement was made by Matthew M. Graves, U.S. Attorney for the District […]]]>

WASHINGTON Stacy Higa, 58, a former civil servant from Hilo, Hawaii, was today sentenced in federal court to 46 months in prison for embezzling funds from AmeriCorps and also for offering a bribe in exchange for grants under the CARES Act.

The announcement was made by Matthew M. Graves, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Deborah Jeffrey, Inspector General of AmeriCorps, and Steven Merrill, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Field Office in Honolulu.

Higa pleaded guilty in October 2021, in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, to embezzlement and offering a bribe. He was sentenced by the Honorable Reggie B. Walton. After his prison sentence, Higa will be placed under three years of probation. He is required to pay $38,642 in restitution and an identical amount in a judgment forfeiture of the money. He will also have to complete 200 hours of community service.

“This defendant abused his position of trust when he stole from AmeriCorps, a critical federal program designed to help the most vulnerable Americans,” U.S. Attorney Graves said. “His attempt to obtain CARES Act funds through bribery showed a shocking disregard for the critical importance of the program. The Department of Justice will prosecute, to the fullest extent permitted by law, individuals who choose to abuse their position of power to enrich themselves at the expense of the American people.

“Stacy Higa exploited her position of trust to steal AmeriCorps funds from vulnerable communities and conspired to deprive her neighbors of money needed for pandemic relief,” AmeriCorps Inspector General Jeffrey said. “Today’s sentence holds him accountable, reflecting the seriousness of his offences.”

“The citizens of Hawaii deserve a government free from corruption. Stacy Higa’s actions undermine the respect and reputation of all public officials who have a responsibility to maintain the public trust,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Merrill. “Today’s sentencing reflects the FBI’s continued commitment and dedication to working with our partners to identify, investigate and prosecute those who abuse their powers and hold them accountable.”

AmeriCorps is a federally funded network of national service programs that meet critical community needs, such as improving educational achievement, mentoring youth, alleviating poverty, preserving national parks, disaster preparedness, etc. AmeriCorps national service members agree to serve for a specified period, usually one year, in exchange for a living stipend, funding to be used for tuition, and other benefits.

From June 2011 to May 2020, Higa, a former Hawaii County councilman and mayoral candidate, served as executive director of the Hawaii Commission for National and Community Service, the state service commission responsible for administer AmeriCorps programs in Hawaii. From February 2018 until his resignation from the Commission, Higa embezzled more than $38,000 of AmeriCorps funds by signing and authorizing contracts and purchase orders between the Hawaii Commission and two companies he owned or controlled, without disclosing its control over the companies. Higa spent the embezzled funds on personal expenses, including paying about $20,000 for elective cosmetic dental work.

The CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act), which was passed by Congress and signed into law in or around March 2020, provided financial assistance to individuals, businesses, states, and localities suffering from the economic effects of COVID-19. pandemic. Among other relief programs, the CARES Act created a $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) to distribute to states, localities, and tribal governments to support expenses incurred due to COVID-19. Government entities that received money from the FRC could use the funds, among other things, to provide grants to small businesses to reimburse business interruption costs caused by required closures and to provide economic relief to people suffering from an interruption of employment.

In August 2020, Hanalei Aipoalani was hired to serve as the Honolulu City and County Community Services Department’s CARES Program Administrator and was responsible for administering CRF programs. From August 2020 to October 2020, Higa offered to provide financial benefits to Aipoalani to influence the approval of Higa’s applications for two grants totaling $845,000 under the CARES Act. Higa then had an employee draft and submit false and backdated invoices for the grants. Higa and Aipoalani discussed opening LLCs on Oahu and using their wives as directors to launder the money. As part of his plea deal, Higa admitted to expecting to receive at least $250,000 in profit from CARES Act funds.

Aipoalani, 43, of Waianae, Hawaii, separately pleaded guilty to embezzlement from AmeriCorps and accepting a bribe under the CARES Act. Aipoalani was sentenced on June 30, 2021 to 46 months in prison and ordered to pay full restitution to AmeriCorps.

The AmeriCorps Inspector General and the FBI Field Office in Honolulu investigated the matter. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Leslie A. Goemaat of the Fraud, Public Corruption, and Civil Rights Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

February 10, 2022

COVID-19 has brought significant change and uncertainty to people’s lives. Family illnesses and bereavement, unemployment, school closures, and lack of physical contact with family and friends can all lead to increased stress and mental health issues like depression. At worst, depression can lead to suicide, which tragically kills more than 700,000 people every year.

Suicide: a major public health issue

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, Bhutan, a country in Southeast Asia, realized that suicide was becoming a serious public health problem. Although he is credited with introducing the term “Gross National Happiness” in 1972, suicide is the sixth leading cause of death in Bhutan. Moreover, for every four deaths by suicide in the country, only one suicide attempt is recorded. This is an indication of significant under-reporting, given estimates that globally there are more than 20 suicide attempts for every suicide. In 2015, Bhutan’s Ministry of Health established a multi-year National Suicide Prevention Program to address this important public health issue. The National Action Plan for Suicide Prevention (2018-2023) includes strategies to increase detection of suicidal ideation and to respond to suicidal ideation and attempts.

At the start of the pandemic, Bhutan had few mental health human resources, with only two practicing psychiatrists and a handful of trained psychiatric nurses and clinical counsellors. Anticipating the mental health consequences of the pandemic and the disruption of mental health services, in March 2020 the Ministry of Health set up, with guidance from the WHO country-based team, a National COVID-19 Psychosocial and Mental Health Response Team to address mental health and psychosocial needs across the country.

Training at scale: essential for scaling up mental health and suicide prevention services

Training is an essential part of scaling up mental health and suicide prevention services. In 2020-2021, the Bhutan Mental Health Response Team trained over 20,000 frontline workers and community volunteers across Bhutan on identifying risk factors for suicide, how to provide a basic psychosocial support to community members in distress and how to make referrals. WHO Guidance on Psychological First Aid+ (PFA+) were adapted and used during these training programs. The response team has also hosted over 200 webinars on suicide prevention, mental health, and addictions management. Participants shared that after the training, not only were they able to identify risk factors among community members, but they also learned to recognize signs of stress in themselves and knew when to ask for help. ‘aid.

In addition to frontline workers and community volunteers, 140 first responders ̶ district doctors, mental health workers and clinical counselors ̶ have been trained to effectively deal with self-harm and suicide. Funded by WHO, the initiatives included a train-the-trainer program on suicide prevention and management, which focused on strengthening Bhutan’s national suicide registry.

The response team also held a training workshop for media representatives in November 2021 to encourage responsible reporting of suicides. The team developed and disseminated “Media Guidelines for Responsible Reporting on Mental Health and Suicide” during the workshop.

These initiatives implemented in Bhutan are in line with the WHO strategy Guide to implementing LIVE LIFE for suicide prevention in countries. The guide, published in June 2021, recommends four key strategies to reduce suicide deaths: limiting access to resources; interact with the media for responsible reporting on suicides; fostering socio-emotional life skills in adolescents; and the early identification, assessment, management and follow-up of anyone affected by suicidal behaviors.

Relaunching a crisis hotline

In addition to capacity building initiatives, the Bhutan Mental Health Response Team has re-launched a crisis hotline, staffed by trained mental health professionals. More than 1,500 people dealing with mental health issues, alcohol and drug use problems, domestic violence and self-harm have already received help through the helpline. The response team also re-established links between services and referral pathways, allowing helpline callers to access treatment and clinical care when needed. In addition to five dedicated counseling hotlines at the national level, another 22 hotlines are now available in the districts and Thromdes (municipalities) of Bhutan.

Reflecting on the activities of the response team, Dr Chencho Dorji, a practicing Bhutanese psychiatrist supported by WHO, noted that “the pandemic has provided a unique opportunity to adopt new policies and implement mental health programs that had not been attempted before, enabling the mobilization of human resources for mental health.In addition, the increased accessibility, convenience and anonymity provided by telephone counseling has encouraged many people to seek help and access treatment, opening the door to scaling up online and telepsychiatric services and suicide prevention in the country.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is trying to identify a central data source within government to collect information on the most vulnerable populations to ensure health equity.

Some quality Medicare and Medicaid programs already collect demographic data such as race, but it is not standardized across government.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed gaps in health care nationwide, and CMS wants to make demographic data available to it in a central data repository so authorized users can access it to address disparities in its programs.

“What we think we have to do is actually look for another agency, and I hate to pick on the Social Security Administration, but everybody has a Social Security number,” Mark Plaugher said. , deputy director of the information systems group within the Centre. for Clinical Standards and Quality, at the AFCEA Bethesda Health IT Event on Thursday. “The highest where we can find those common denominators is how to actually collect that information.”

In the meantime, CCSQ is improving cross-program analyzes so that data collected by systems like the inpatient quality reporting program can support other programs.

CMS has partnered with states to share near real-time Medicaid data to identify dropped care, missed preventive services for children, declining dental and behavioral health services, and increased need for treatment of disorders related to substance use during the pandemic.

The agency last weekend launched the first module of the Medicaid and CHIP Financial (MACFin) system to automate state spending oversight and approvals for the program’s $670 billion.

“It’s huge because right now we have a lot of people doing a lot of manual labor in this space,” said Karen Shields, deputy director of the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services. “And so we’ve been looking for this system to be one of the major improvements in our service delivery for a long time.”

The Transformed Medicaid Statistical Information System (T-MSIS) brings together all Medicaid data and converts it into readable files for researchers and other users, providing a national view of how the program is being used. — including inequalities in the way people obtain benefits.

CMS is building a Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) data warehouse and using Data Connect to link sources for ease of use.

The agency also merges Medicare and Medicaid data to get a full picture of eligible duplicates, but still needs a system to understand which benefits were cut during public health emergencies and where they went, which remains “a big question mark” for CMS, Shields said. .

“The whole concept is not just to have a data warehouse,” she said. “But to have a place where stories can be built and told and understood and used to help.”

How ‘payday loans’ help wolves manage their money https://reservocation.com/how-payday-loans-help-wolves-manage-their-money/ Fri, 28 Jan 2022 09:41:22 +0000 https://reservocation.com/how-payday-loans-help-wolves-manage-their-money/ Wolves received £23m in loan secured against future installments from Diogo Jota’s sale to Liverpool, helping Jeff Shi manage cash flow WOLVERHAMPTON, ENGLAND – JULY 15: Wolverhampton Wanderers Technical Director Scott Sellars (L) and Wolverhampton Wanderers Executive Chairman Jeff Shi look on during a Wolverhampton Wanderers pre-season training session at Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground […]]]>

Clubs won’t use the same wording, but many regularly take loans from banks. It is very common in modern football.

Wolves are no different. In 2019, they took out a £50m loan backed by future TV revenue with Australian financial services giant Macquarie Group.

Last month, they then received £23million from the same group on a secured loan against the last two installments owed by Liverpool for the sale of Diogo Jota.

Financial jargon aside – Wolves essentially received £23m in December and when those future installments arrive from Anfield, due in July 2022 and July 2023, that money will then be refunded to the bank – with interest.

The reason? Cash flow. Clubs tend to receive huge sums of money at the start of a season, with advances from television contracts and subscription sales, but often have little revenue throughout a season.

They have to pay salaries and various other expenses, and that’s where bank loans come in.

“Good cash flow in any business is essential for survival and sustainability,” said football finance expert Kieran Maguire.

“Companies don’t fail because of a lack of profit, they fail because they don’t manage their cash flow well.

“It’s exactly the same as us. As individuals, we may be asset rich, in the sense that we have a car or a house, but if we don’t have the money to buy groceries for that week, we will starve.

“Having someone in a football club who can do cash flow forecasting and budgeting is essential for the survival of the club.”

If you or I have taken out a payday loan, the interest may be piling up and financial difficulties are on the horizon.

But with traditional banks reluctant to lend to football clubs, these specialist lenders step in with lower interest rates.

“I don’t think there is a danger of clubs taking out these types of loans,” Maguire added.

“If you get the money now, that will solve the problem and it could give you a cash flow problem in a year or two, or perhaps Wolves would have sold two more players or secured funding from other sources.

“So I don’t see that as a problem. It’s a cash management issue and it’s cheaper than other forms of borrowing because it’s secured by money transfers. The clubs could see an advantage in this.

“There is always interest on this type of loan.

“In the documents we have seen, the lender normally charges between seven and nine and a half percent interest per annum.

“It’s not prohibitive and it’s cheaper than a credit card. It’s cheaper than some owners charge for club loans, but it’s still important if we look at the money versus Diogo Jota’s transfer.

“We’re talking tens of millions of pounds, so the interest is potentially hundreds of thousands of pounds, but that won’t stop a club from continuing.”

The financial world of football was murky enough before the Covid-19 pandemic kicked in.

There are many examples, past and present, where this goes wrong and clubs cease to exist.

But for now, football payday loans will remain and the industry as a whole should thrive.

Maguire said: “The pandemic has certainly not helped clubs.

“The Premier League is financially insulating itself from the pandemic due to the strength of TV deals, but matchday revenue is still a vital part of a club’s finances. Therefore, this hole must be filled in one way or another.

“They like to call it bill discounting, but I prefer the term ‘glorified payday loan.’

“These types of loans are quite common in other industries, and those industries survive.”
