“Non-communicable diseases have been neglected so far, but the situation is becoming dire”

Amruta Byatnal

NEW DELHI, 11 December 2018

On 10 December each year, human rights and development organizations celebrate international Human Rights Day. We release statements and organize events to reaffirm the importance of equality and social justice, and the centrality of basic human rights in any progress-seeking process. As we bid an eventful year farewell and gear up to the 70th anniversary of Human Rights Day, I wonder whether the calls we release for justice and dignity are starting to sound like cries from a top a mountain and into emptiness.

"Cada día, las personas que se desplazan se enfrentan a la brutalidad de las actuales políticas migratorias. Estas políticas intentan detener los flujos migratorios castigando a las personas y tratando de ocultar su realidad. Pero esto no impide que estas sigan huyendo de la violencia y la pobreza. Es más, sólo les infligen aún más sufrimiento. Nuestros equipos ven de primera mano las consecuencias desgarradoras de estas políticas en todo el mundo: desde Libia hasta México y desde Grecia hasta Nauru".

ÉBAUCHE D’AVANT-PROPOS DE LA MINISTRE BIBEAU POUR LE RECUEIL DU SYMPOSIUM SUR L’ÉGALITÉ ENTRE LES SEXES DU CALP

Bien que les conflits entre les États aient considérablement diminué ces dernières années, les conflits au sein des États – auxquels participent fréquemment des acteurs non étatiques – sont en hausse. Par conséquent, des millions de personnes doivent se déplacer et composer avec des possibilités réduites, un accès limité aux services et un avenir incertain.

ABSTRACT

Efforts to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) should be regarded as a priority for all actors in every humanitarian response operation from the very outset. By mainstreaming GBV considerations in cash-based interventions (CBIs) throughout the programme cycle, and by utilizing cash within GBV case management services, cash can be optimized as a tool to enhance the protection of crisis- and conflict-affected populations, and to mitigate their risks of recurrent violence, promote their recovery and build their resilience.
