The Presidential Commissioner for the United Nations (UN) and congressman, Miguel Pizarro, explained that the delay in the payment of the $100 to the health personnel is caused by processes in conjunction with the American treasury to generate confidence, guarantee transparency and avoid questioning about the use of the resources.
“This is the first time we will have direct disbursement of resources, different from the mechanisms of international agencies. This has had a delay that although it is unjustified for the final beneficiary, I think it gives us a tranquility in the process that we will appreciate in the end,” he explained during an interview with journalist Sergio Novelli.
Pizarro informed that the selection of the company’s platform, which will be the digital wallet used and the selection of the mechanism, was decided to be done in conjunction with the U.S. Treasury in a format of various stages that can be audited. “We prefer to lose the margin of public opinion, but guarantee 100% transparency of the mechanism for transferring resources to health professionals”.
