What we do You are in Immunization
UNICEF will continue to be one of the main partners of Albanian government in protecting the lives of Albanian children from deadly vaccine preventable diseases. Established objectives will be achieved through a well-integrated strategy of interventions to ensure good coverage rates, active involvement of health professionals, strengthening laboratory capacities and active surveillance, effective cold chain, strong political commitment towards Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI), and active community participation. UNICEF is supporting procurement of basic EPI vaccines and safe injection supplies. The issue of financial sustainability will be addressed with finalization of a model proposed by UNICEF - "Ensuring vaccines for the children of Albania", by the progressive takeover of the vaccine procurement process by the Albanian government and by securing the support of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) board for Hepatitis B and Hemofilus influenze B (HiB) vaccines. A cold chain survey covering inventory and effectiveness will be carried out during September - October 2001.

TABLOID NEWS SERVICES, INC. [July 20, 1998] Belgrade and Tirana accused each other of sending troops across the Albania-Yugoslavia border on Sunday as the death toll from weekend clashes in troubled Kosovo province reached at least 110. Meanwhile, Serb media has claimed ethnic Albanian separatists kidnapped more than 50 Serb workers during the weekend battle in Kosovo, while two Serbs were killed by snipers. The Serbs, working for a medical center and businesses in the town of Orahovac, were abducted by separatists with the Kosovo Liberation Army when they seized control of the southwestern city Friday, the Serb daily Jedinstvo reported. Fighting continued between Serb police and Kosovo Albanian separatists for control of Orahovac, 40 miles southwest of the provincial capital Pristina. Serb sources said police had regained control of the town center. Informed sources here said at least 110 people were killed Saturday and Sunday when the Yugoslav army clashed with hundreds of separatists trying to enter the province from neighboring Albania. The fighting occurred in the mountainous region of southwestern Kosovo, the main route for the cross-border transport of people and arms.

Emergency Joint G24/Consultative Group Meeting for Albania
Chairmen’s Conclusions
Representatives from 24 donor countries and 15 international organisations met in Brussels on May 26 1999. The main purpose of this meeting was to secure pledges towards meeting Albania’s additional external financing needs resulting from the Kosovo crisis, in order to enable Albania to cope with short term costs and maintain the stabilisation and structural reform process. Donors gave strong support to Albania in order to handle the emergency situation and costs arising from the Kosovo conflict while the country continues to implement the economic and institutional reforms agenda. Today’s G24/Consultative Group meeting was co-chaired by the European Commission (Directors Fabrizio Barbaso and Joly Dixon) and the World Bank (Director Ms Arntraud Hartmann). The delegation of Albania was led by the Prime Minister, Mr. Pandeli Majko, accompanied by the Finance Minister, Mr. Anastas Angjeli, the Minister of Economic Co-operation and Trade, Ms. Ermelinda Meksi, and Mr. Maqo Lakrori, State Secretary for Euro-Atlantic Integration. Delegates also noted the valuable co-ordination mechanisms established after the 1997 crisis among the core donors EC, WB, EBRD and IMF. This group liases with "Friends of Albania", which is co-chaired by the EU/OSCE. Core donors regularly monitor progress in the reform programmes agreed upon. This donor co-ordination process fits well into the broader regional framework now being established for the Balkans.

FOCUS ON SOUTH EASTERN EUROPE ALBANIAN FLOODS WANE; CLIMATE CHANGE, EROSION MAY HAVE PLAYED ROLE Albanian government officials decided on Sept. 24 to lift a state of emergency that was imposed a day earlier, after severe flooding around the northern Albanian towns of Lac, Lezhe, Shkoder, Diber and Kukes displaced thousands of families and cut off energy and drinking water, according to reports. Officials say the situation is now under control, and that power has been restored to some regions, according to a Sept. 25 report from the Balkan Times News. The Albanian government was seeking emergency assistance to deal with the situation, and Greece, Italy and Turkey had already offered help, according to a Sept. 25 report from Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

Albanian government considered as a great success the decision to open the talks with EU on the Association-Stabilization agreement. Chris Patten, EU commissioner, reported in Tirana that the Albanian political situation had helped for the opening of the talks, and there is needed much work to sign the agreement. Albania is an active participant of the world coalition against the terrorism since it has contributed by sending troops in Afghanistan. Albanian Parliament has passed several international conventions by becoming in such a way a full member. The sole problem seems to be the clash emerged between USA and EU regarding the International Criminal Court. Albania is under way to ratify the Rome status, but on the other hand has promised to USA to sign a bilateral agreement.

The 1918 Albanian Population Census: Data Entry and Basic Analyses
The population census of 1918: its quality and importance
The general scholarly opinion is that in Albania accurate population censuses were not carried out before the census of 1945 (which was succeeded by the censuses of 1950, 1955, 1960, 1969, 1979 and 1989) the results of which have been published by the Statistical Office. The first population census conducted by the Albanian governmental administration was taken in 1923; many of its results on a macro level have been published. The next population census was taken in 1930, the original data of which is still available although not as compact stock. This census is obviously of less value than that of a population census the quality of which has been underestimated in the scholarly literature until now, namely the census of 1918 which was organized by an expert on statistics, the Graz-based Franz Seiner.
In January of 1916 almost the whole territory of Albania was occupied by the Austrian-Hungarian army with the exception of the fringes in the south of the country, which were occupied by Bulgarian, French, Italian and Greek troops. Shkodra, at that time the country's largest city, became the seat of the military administration, which left the traditional civil administrative structures unchanged.

In the sixth year of the transition, albanian government officials still havenot declared what the minimal monthly costs of living are for an Albanian.
A ndrea Stefani of the Tirana daily " Gazeta Shqiptare", rises in the 19 June 1997 issue of this newspaper the question why the World Bank participated, together with Albanian officials, in presenting the Albanian economic situation in a better light than it was. A lbania is the poorest country in Europe, but the poverty issue is still treated like a state secret within Albania. In the sixth year of the transition, Albanian government officials still have not declared what the minimal monthly costs of living are for an Albanian. A special contribution with respect to this distortion of reality and the obscuring of the truth has been made by international institutions and the World Bank in particular. T W hat is surprising is the fact that World Bank officials are collaborating in the censorship policies. To be more concrete, in January 1997, World Bank office in Tirana was prepared to publish a study on the issue of poverty, and its alleviation. The Albanian Government opposed this initiative and the report data never saw the light of publication. Considering the situation, one question can be raised: What was the effort on the part of the World Bank to veil or unveil the ugly bride? World Bank staff, foreigners advisors and Albanians, who safely left the country long before the expected turmoil, keep raising their shoulders, finding it hard to explain the Albanian mysterious impoverishment. N owadays poverty has become a tragic theme of the Albanian reality, and its augmentation can not be avoided by politicians' slogans and promises. The high inflation rate of the Albanian lek persistently discredits the official version that the minimal living standard for a family of four is equal to the social security allowances of 2,984 leks. The poverty issues instead of being in the main agendas and political programmes were simply discarded in the most senseless and brutal electoral campaign in the country. Tension and violence are artificially raised, intrigue is fabricated by politicians, leaving no time to deal with poverty. The question is: Why are international institutions interested in complicity maintaining state secrets? Does the pyramid schemes collapse not prove that complicity and collaboration in the distortion of reality, obscuring the bitter truth can produce venom that can entirely poison both state and society?

Let's Go Out Into the World and Gather Up the Small Arms
By Mark Malloch Brown and Jayantha Dhanapala
International Herald Tribune
Paris, Wednesday, January 26, 2000 NEW YORK - Farmers and villagers in the impoverished Albanian district of Gramsh are reaping the benefits of an unusual harvest. Lured by the promise of new schools, health care, telephones, street lights and repairs to roads and bridges, they have been clearing out their lofts, basements and other more secret hiding places and hauling cartloads of firearms and ammunition to local police stations.
Last September, President Rexhep Meidani unveiled a plaque in the Gramsh town square that communities in a score of troubled nations would give almost anything to have. It commemorates the collection of more than 5,700 weapons and 100 tons of ammunition and explosives that were hoarded during civil riots in 1997.
In March of that year, the collapse of fraudulent pyramid investment schemes bankrupted thousands of Albanians who promptly attacked and looted army depots across the country. Gramsh, with four army depots and a weapons factory, became a munitions market.
After a stream of killings, woundings and weapons-related accidents, representatives of the United Nations Development Program and the UN Department for Disarmament Affairs visited Gramsh, at the invitation of the Albanian government, to help broker an agreement by which community services would be delivered in proportion to the volume of arms and munitions turned in.

Trial Overview Hot Topics: Macedonia March 1998 In Kosovo, Albanians, most of whom were Muslims, constituted around 90 percent of the 2 million-strong population. However, although Serbs amounted for only a small percentage of the population, the province was considered to be the historic Serb homeland. The current Yugoslav (and former Serbian) President, Slobodan Milosevic, had risen to prominence in 1987 on a promise to protect Kosovo's Serbian minority. The crackdown appeared to enjoy the support of most Serbs, including the Serbian opposition, which opposed Kosovo's separation from Serbia. September 1991 In a referendum held on Sept. 8 in Macedonia 75 per cent of the registered electorate of 1,400,000 went to the polls; they were boycotted by many of the Albanians who made up 25 per cent of the republic's population. Results showed that 95 per cent had voted in favour of a "sovereign and independent Macedonia with a right to enter a union of sovereign states of Yugoslavia". No immediate secession was envisaged, although this option was endorsed by the hardline nationalist Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization-Democratic Party for Macedonian National Unity, the biggest party in the Macedonian parliament. On Sept. 19 the Prime Ministers of Bulgaria (which regarded Macedonians as Bulgars) and Greece held talks in Athens with Milosevic on the future of Macedonia.
