To support the capacity of countries to integrate human rights in their Fast-Track approaches to HIV programming, UNAIDS and the Alliance Nationale Contre le Sida (ANCS) Senegal held a three-day capacity building workshop in Dakar, Senegal from 22 to 24 June 2015.
The workshop highlighted the continued political, legal, cultural, social, and programmatic challenges that hinder efforts to address the HIV epidemic.

L’administrateur de territoire de Kongolo s’est engagé depuis le week-end dernier dans un programme visant à régler les multiples conflits coutumiers et de terre qui affectent son entité. Ces conflits se terminent le plus souvent dans un bain de sang.
La première étape du programme de pacification lancé par les autorités locales concerne la chefferie des Bena-Nyembo située à une soixantaine de km du chef-lieu du territoire. C’est là que l’on a enregistré plusieurs bagarres à la machette avec plusieurs personnes blessées. La plus récente a eu lieu il y a une semaine.

Ugandan rebels blamed for slaughtering hundreds in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have a "terrorist aspect" which could draw them closer to African jihadist movements, a UN military leader said Wednesday.
The insurgency by the mainly Muslim rebels of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) has a "terrorist aspect that must be taken extremely seriously," said General Jean Baillaud, deputy commander of MONUSCO, the United Nations peacekeeping mission in DR Congo.
The United Nations Joint Human Rights Office (UNJHRO) in Bunia in partnership with Human Rights NGOs organized an open conference-debate in the district of Ituri to mark the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture commemorated on 26 June of each year.

WFP urgently requires USD 63 million for the next six months to meet the needs of existing operations that are responding to the Burundi crisis.
In Burundi, a recent inter-agency assessment recommended immediate food assistance for 100,000 people in Kirundo, Makamba Provinces and Bujumbura.
Tension is on the rise in Bujumbura in view of the first round of presidential elections, as rumors of attacks to destabilize the process circulate. In light of this, the number of Burundians leaving the country has increased. The police and military are still present in some parts of the city centre and suburbs. Criminality is on the rise and grenade attacks are recorded almost daily.
Snapshot 24–30 June 2015
Burundi: Turnout at the parliamentary elections was low. Voting stations were targeted and there was a spate of grenade attacks in the capital: several people were injured. Around 1,000 Burundians are leaving the country every day: 62,000 refugees are now in Tanzania, 45,000 in Rwanda, and 10,600 in DRC.
South Sudan: Households in some areas of Unity and Upper Nile states are suspected to be facing Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5) food security outcomes. 5–8% of the country’s population are suffering severe acute malnutrition.
The objective of this overview is to support the development of national-level response and preparedness plans and facilitate joint priority actions in the areas of advocacy, resource mobilization, and coordinated engagement in cross border areas.
There has been a step change in the threat level in the region in 2015. There is an increasing concern about the confluence and compounding impacts of these threats, both at the national and the regional level. The outlook presented here will be updated on a bi-monthly basis.
