Good afternoon ladies and Gentlemen,
This is a summary of what was said by UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis - to whom quoted text may be attributed - at the press briefing, on 13 December 2005, at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.
The situation endured by most of the nearly 2 million internally displaced people (IDPs) in northern Uganda continues to worsen as rebel attacks have caused fresh human displacement. In early November a spate of attacks committed by members of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) on humanitarian workers as well as renewed ambushes on civilians hindered relief operations to a displaced population heavily reliant on assistance.

Nearly 4,000 internally displaced people in the Guluand Paderdistricts of northern Uganda - already ravaged by nearly 20 years of armed conflict - had all their belongings destroyed and were left without shelter by fires at the end of November. The ICRC and other organizations promptly brought relief supplies to some 2,000 of the victims in seven camps for the displaced. Tarpaulins, jerrycans, buckets, cups, plates, cooking pots, soap and blankets were distributed.

1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
GENEVA, 30 November (UNHCR) - Refugees are people, and people are prone to catch HIV from each other - and then pass it on to others - unless they have some understanding of the disease and take the necessary precautions to prevent it spreading.
THE SECRETARY-GENERAL FOREWORD TO THE HUMANITARIAN APPEAL 2006
The past year has been a wretched one for millions of disaster victims. It dawned with the Indian Ocean tsunami, saw a hurricane season unrivalled in living memory strike the Americas, and included South Asia’s devastating earthquake. Through it all, other tragic crises persisted in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Like never before, the year stretched and tested the capabilities of aid agencies, and the will of survivors.
KAMPALA, November 30 (UNHCR) - As a Ugandan police detective, Gladys Friday has taken reports of "painful cases of violence" against women almost every day, but she was never sure how best to help the victims.
