Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The pilot study aims to deepen the activities of the Health Cooperation (CS) through: 1) Census of CS activities published online from 2006 to 2013, carried out by Government and NGOs in Ethiopia. Comparison of the consistency between the sources (website of the Directorate General for Development Cooperation [DGCS], annual report on the updating of development cooperation policy 2010 [RA], non-governmental organization sites [NGO]). 2) From what can be found online, evaluation of the "Transparency in Help" (Aid) of NGOs and the Italian Government, operating in Ethiopia, through a methodology validated by the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). From the Census: 143 interventions, of which 33 identified by the RA, 18 from the DGCS site and by the RA, 92 carried out by 32 NGOs. Of the 33 interventions of the RA, 7 are not on the DGCS website and, for 13 interventions, the amount is not consistent between the 2 sources. The qualitative evaluation of the “Transparency in Help” of the 32 NGOs (presence / absence of the indicators) showed: 7 NGOs publish the annual report, no budget for the next three-year period, 2 NGOs the national strategy document, 2 NGOs publish the project identifier (ID), all contacts, 22 NGOs, activity title, sub-national geographical position, goals / objectives and 21 NGOs describe the activities, 16 start / end dates, 5 total costs and 4 current activity status. The quantitative transparency assessment with ATI highlighted the minimum transparency percentage of 3.33% for 4 NGOs, only 1 NGO 63.29%, maximum percentage. The transparency percentage range is summarized: 16 NGOs 0-19% transparency (very poor), 15 NGOs transparency 20-39% (poor), no NGOs transparency 40-59% (sufficient), 1 NGO transparency 60- 79% ( discrete), no NGO transparency 80-100% (good). There are three critical issues: lack and partial consistency of online information, lack of a single data collection system and online publication.
