We, UN and non-UN entities, re-affirm our determination to prevent future acts of sexual exploitation and abuse by our personnel.
We note the issuance of this Statement at the High-level Conference on Eliminating Sexual Exploitation and Abuse by UN and NGO Personnel on 4 December 2006 in New York, USA and welcome future endorsement of this Statement by others.

International Women’s Day — today — is more than a celebration of women’s achievements. It’s also a call to action to advance gender equality around the world.
At Pact, we work every day to empower women and girls. Last year, we helped 2.3 million people gain better access to health and social services — more than half of them women. Of the nearly 900,000 people who boosted their income with Pact’s help in 2015, 97 percent were women.

This year’s theme for World AIDS Day is Think Positive: Rethink HIV.
At Pact, we see lots of reasons to be positive.
In Nigeria’s Bayelsa state, more pregnant women are being tested for HIV and taking steps to protect their babies.
In Ethiopia, children are learning the basics of good health and HIV prevention just as they are reading and math.
In Ukraine, stigma surrounding HIV is slowly eroding, and local institutions responding to the disease are more robust.
We’d like to present Pact’s Mobile Technology Handbook, a comprehensive resource for getting started with mobile data collection. Mobile technology – mobile phones, smartphones, and tablets – have not only changed the way people communicate and share information, but also how development professionals conduct surveys, disseminate information to program participants, collect beneficiary feedback, and many other activities.
