MAKING SERBIAN HEALTHCARE BETTER
"Serbia on the move" is Civil Society Organization, founded in 2009, deals, among other topics, with the issue of corruption in the health care During 2009 and 2012 the project "I am not on the take, I work for the salary" was successfully implemented in Belgrade, Uzice, Vranje and Zrenjanin and it was 70% of the physicians wore a badge with the inscription mentioned. Today, there’s the new project called "What's the doctor like?".
The fight for a better health care in Serbia and the fight against corruption in the health care are still in the focus of the Serbia on the move through the project and the campaign "What's the doctor like?", whose main idea is to create a free and direct channel of communication between doctors and their patients. How? As of November 18th 2012 website www.kakavjedoktor.org will be up and running, providing every patient an opportunity to evaluate the relationship between the patient and doctor and to leave a comment about the health care services provided. In addition, each doctor will be able to access this web site with a profile, edit it, follow reviews of their work, read and respond to the comments of their patients. What is certainly the strongest blow to corruption, for which the members of this organization fought, is the presence of a special section on the website where people will be able to directly report corruption cases to the competent authorities of the Republic of Serbia. In this way, citizens will be able to make their voices heard on the issue of transparency in the work of physicians and improve the health care as a whole.
In addition to setting up a web site, the Serbia on the move will conduct a community organizing campaign on in order to gather citizens who are personally interested in the subject, and encourage them to actively use the site and affect the formation of its contents. Serbia on the move will also conduct active and engaged media campaign, through all available channels of communication to invite citizens and to engagecivic groups to support project on the ground.
At the very beginning, in a period 20th September to 20th October training "LOUDLY FOR HEALTHCARE!" on basic tactics of organizing citizens to fight against corruption in the health care will be conducted in 7 cities of Serbia. Among the participants of this training, 50 people will be recruited to be more actively engaged in the project, to form a team of at least five people, and take action in their cities and towns. These 50 people will go through the training on community organizing . Training curriculum was taken from professor Marshall Ganz, from Harvard University, who is creator of this model,
