Use and abuse of tax breaks: how tax incentives become harmful

Taxation is essential to raise sufficient, equitable and accountable financing for development. Only through taxation can governments fund public spending on the essential services at the quality and scale necessary to realise the rights of all citizens. Yet many Southern governments decide not to tax certain corporations and companies in the hope that this will attract cross-border investment. Despite mounting evidence that the practice of offering tax incentives is both largely ineffective and detrimental to development, it is widespread. This report explains how tax incentives can become harmful, and discusses what can be done to stop their abuse.

Christian Aid Health strategy 2017-20

A strategy for Christian Aid's health work globally

Christian Aid management response – health integration research

The health integration research positioned Christian Aid’s health work well within the global health policy arena and comparatively against other INGOs. It highlighted a number of strengths and areas of expertise of our work. It detailed recommendations for us to leverage upon these strengths to access funding and gain more recognition for our work globally. The research provided definitions of the different types of integration into which our health work fits, namely integrated within wider development strategies, integration at various levels within a health system (from national to community) and health issue level, i.e. disease integration. This is useful in helping CA to understand the multiple ways in which our programmes are integrated and to utilise this to build our work further. This paper features recommendations from research.

Community health in a global context

In 2016, Christian Aid commissioned a research report entitled ‘Putting Christian Aid’s approach to Community Health Integration into a Global Context’. The research was funded by the PPA and sought to reflect on Christian Aid’s approach to health integration and compare that to global health policy and priorities. The research provides recommendations for Christian Aid to continue to strengthen our integrated health programmes. This is a summary of the report, which contains the key strategic and programmatic recommendations.Understanding integration and the changing context of health
