Pegged as the biggest global event in adolescent health and held once every four years, the International Association for Adolescent Health’s 11th World Congress on Adolescent Health, ‘Investing in Adolescent Health – the Future is Now’ will be held in New Delhi from October 27-29 2017.The agenda for Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and the new Global Strategy on Women’s Children’s and Adolescents’ Health have brought adolescence to the centre-stage. Even while the mortality of adolescents globally stands at staggering 1.3 million deaths per year, and considered a time of risk for health, adolescence is increasingly now recognised as a period of opportunity for health, in which individuals gain the assets and resources to sustain health across the life-course.The World Congress seeks to cover topical themes through discussions in sessions such as ‘Global adolescent health: Opportunities and challenges’, ‘Programming for adolescent health in India: RKSK and beyond’, ‘Toward a gendered approach to adolescent health’, ‘Mental health and adolescents’, and more.The World Congress is being organised under the supportive leadership of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW), Government of India. MAMTA Health Institute for Mother and Child (MAMTA) is the lead organisation that is hosting the World Congress with a consortium of partners including Pathfinder International, Population Foundation of India (PFI), Population Services International (PSI), and The YP Foundation. The World Congress also has scientific support from Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP), Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India (FOGSI), Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and Trained Nurses Association of India (TNAI).

Junior Market Given Transition Period

first_imgRelatedAudit Committees Urged to Adhere to Governance Framework Government has introduced a transition period for the phasing out of the special scheme of income tax incentives now enjoyed by companies listed on the Junior Market of the Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE).This was disclosed by Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips on Tuesday, October 29, during a statement in the House of Representatives on the Omnibus tax incentive legislation.Dr. Phillips said that in light of the tax reform measures being undertaken, which seek to provide a more competitive tax environment for businesses across the board, arrangements will have to now be made for the gradual phasing of this special scheme for the junior market.“Companies listed on the exchange prior to January 1, 2014 will continue to enjoy their current benefits for the remainder of their unexpired incentive period. Between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2016, companies that list on the Junior Market will be entitled to enjoy full relief from income for a period of five years from the date of listing,” the Finance Minister said.He added that to help to ensure proper control of this transitional taxation regime, a mechanism will be developed to allow for the capping of the tax expenditures that will arise from the operation of this special scheme of tax relief.The Omnibus legislation is an important structural benchmark of the four-year Extended Fund Facility agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and seeks to provide a framework for a new regime to govern all tax incentives.Two of the Bills, Fiscal Incentives (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act and the Income Tax Relief (Large Scale Projects and Pioneer Industries) Act 2013, were tabled in the Lower House.The others to be tabled are the Customs Tariff (Revision) (Amendment) Resolution 2013, and the Stamp Duty (Amendment of Schedule) Order 2013.

Industrial and logistics: urban outfits

first_imgOne of the key issues is land shortages, particularly in town and city centres, where retailers and logistics companies need space to service last-mile delivery. In the latest of our Sheds of the Future series, in collaboration with Savills, we task six architects with designing an ultra-urban logistics hub and residential hybrid. Their concepts are weird and wonderful and provide plenty of food for thought.As well as the potential for ‘sheds and beds’, another evolution, driven by the growing use of automation, could be warehouses being measured in three dimensions, not two – a debate that was reignited by Amazon in November. This would lead to fundamental changes in the way buildings are valued – changes not necessarily welcomed by landlords even if it would equate to higher rents.Another possibly worrying change, in London at least, is a policy being considered by the GLA that would force developers to let a percentage of their schemes at low rents to accommodate small businesses that are being priced out of the market. Finding a balance where the GLA, small businesses and developers are all happy will be tricky to say the least.Gain insights into all these issues and more in this first Industrial & Logistics supplement of 2019. It’s going to be an interesting year.Mia Hunt is Property Week’s market reports editorlast_img read more

Chelsea player ‘dreams’ of specific transfer – Recently ‘sent a sign’…

first_imgItalian website Calcio Mercato has some updates today on the situation of Chelsea loanee Tiemoué Bakayoko. They say it’s very unlikely that Monaco will make his transfer permanent at the end of the season, and that opens several possibilities for his future.It’s claimed that Frank Lampard finds no use in the Frenchman, and that’s why his return to Chelsea shouldn’t be something for the long term.Following the loan spell Bakayoko spent at Milan during the 2018/19 season, it’s now said he ‘dreams’ of going back to the club.Embed from Getty ImagesCalcio Mercato states that Milan actually got close to signing him in January, when they spoke both to Chelsea and Monaco. What blocked the Rossoneri from completing the transfer was that they’ve failed to sell Franck Kessie, who was repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League.It’s said that Bakayoko has recently ‘sent a sign’ to the Italian side showing he continues to like the idea of returning.
