Migrants and Refugees Are at Higher Risk of Developing Ill Health Than the Host Populations: WHO Report on the Health of Displaced People in Europe

 

 

|| January 21: 2019 || ά. Migrants and refugees are likely to have good general health but they can be at risk of falling sick in transition or while staying in receiving countries due to poor living conditions or adjustments in their lifestyle. This is the main conclusion of the first Report on ‘the health of refugees and migrants in the WHO European Region’, released by the World Health Organisation:WHO Regional Office for Europe today. The report summarizes the latest available evidence on the health of refugees and migrants in the WHO European Region, from a review of more than 13,000 documents and the progress countries have made to promote their health. It was developed in partnership with the Italian National Institute for Health, Migration and Poverty:INMP.

“Today, political and social systems are struggling to rise to the challenge of responding to displacement and migration in a humane and positive way. This Report is the first of its kind and gives us a snapshot of the health of refugees and migrants in the WHO European Region, at a time when the migration phenomenon is expanding across the world.” says Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe. Refugees and migrants appear to be less affected than their host populations by many non-communicable diseases on arrival; however, if, they are in conditions of poverty, the duration of their stay in host countries increases their risk for cardiovascular diseases, stroke or cancer. As migrants and refugees are likely to change their lifestyle to engage in less physical activity and consume less healthy food, they are, also, more prone to risk factors for chronic diseases.

The displacement processes itself can make refugees and migrants more vulnerable to infectious diseases. Yet, the Report underlines that, for instance, the proportion of refugees and migrants among a host country’s tuberculosis:TB cases varies broadly depending on the TB prevalence in the host population and that a significant proportion of migrants and refugees, who are HIV positive acquired the infection after they arrived in Europe. Despite the widespread assumption to the contrary, there is only a very low risk of refugees and migrants transmitting communicable diseases to their host population.

“The new Report provides insight into what must be done to meet the health needs of both migrants and refugees and the host population. As migrants and refugees become more vulnerable than the host population to the risk of developing both non-communicable and communicable diseases, it is necessary that they receive timely access to quality health services, as everyone else. This is the best way to save lives and cut treatment costs, as well as, protect the health of the resident citizens.” says Dr Jakab.

Key Findings of the Report: International migrants make up only 10%, 90.7 million, of the total population in the WHO European Region. Less than 07.4% of these are refugees. In some European countries, citizens estimate that there are three or four times more migrants than there really are.

While communicable diseases are commonly linked with displacement and migration, there is a growing awareness that a range of acute and chronic conditions, also, require attention.

Refugees and migrants are at lower risk for all forms of cancer, except, cervical cancer. However, cancer in refugees and migrants is more likely to be diagnosed at an advanced stage, which can lead to considerably worse health outcomes than those of the host population.

Depression and anxiety tend to affect refugees and migrants more than host populations. However, variation by migrant group and in the methods used to assess prevalence make it hard to draw firm conclusions.

In general, refugees and migrants have a higher incidence, prevalence and mortality rate for diabetes than the host population, with higher rates in women.

Refugees and migrants are, potentially, at greater risk of developing infectious diseases because of their exposure to infections, lack of access to health care, interrupted care and poor living conditions during the migration process. It is, therefore, necessary to protect them and to ensure that health-care workers on the front line understand the risks.

While refugees and migrants, may, arrive in Europe with incomplete or interrupted immunisation, vaccination uptake is likely to increase with the duration of their stay. The immediate response to new arrivals is to ensure that they receive basic vaccines, based on the schedule of the host country.

Access to social and health services varies across the WHO European Region, with legal status, language barriers and discrimination generally being influential factors.

Unaccompanied minors are vulnerable to sexual exploitation and experience higher rates of depression and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Male migrants experience significantly more work-related injuries than non-migrant workers.

A series of guidance documents was, also, developed to translate the report’s findings into practice. Each addresses a specific aspect of the health of refugees and migrants by providing tools, case studies and evidence to inform practices and policies to improve health. They focus on the areas of maternal and new-born health, children’s health, health promotion, mental health and healthy ageing. The documents were produced with financial support from the European Commission.

Countries in the WHO European Region are making progress in implementing the Strategy and action plan for refugee and migrant health, adopted in 2016 by the WHO Regional Committee for Europe to guide progress on the health aspects of population movement. However, more needs to be done to progress towards refugee and migrant-friendly health systems, including, providing quality and affordable health coverage, as well as, social protection for all refugees and migrants regardless of their legal status; making health systems culturally and linguistically sensitive to address communication barriers; ensuring health-care workers are well equipped and experienced to diagnose and manage common infectious and non-infectious diseases; enhancing multi-sectoral action on refugee and migrant health and improving systematic and routine collection of comparable data on refugee and migrant health.

The WHO Regional Office for Europe and partners will continue to support the implementation of the Strategy and action plan, and to assist countries in filling potential gaps in health service delivery. This includes training health-care staff, providing technical assistance, carrying out joint public health and health system assessment missions, and providing policy recommendations using the WHO toolkit to prepare for large influxes of refugees and migrants.

Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman to Give Public Lecture in Leuven at the Peace Jam Conference 2019: February 23-24

 

 

 

|| January 17: 2019: Leuven University News || ά. On February 23-24 two hundred students will gather in Leuven for the annual Peace Jam Conference 2019. They will exchange ideas on topics, such as, sustainable change and get the opportunity to meet the Nobel Laureate for Peace Ms Tawakkol Karman. The PeaceJam conference will be held in Leuven on 23 and 24 February 2019.

Ms Tawakkol Karman will give a public lecture on February 22 at 18.00 in Maria Theresia College. The topic of the lecture will be ‘How to Be a Young and Impactful Opinion Maker’. At the Peace Jam Conference the students, aged between 15 and 25 years, will discuss topics ranging from developing leadership, understanding global problems and setting up initiatives to prompt sustainable change.

Ms Tawakkol Abdel-Salam Karman from Yemen will be the guest of honour at the Conference. She's a journalist, politician and human rights activist. In 2011, she won the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts to improve women’s rights in Yemen.

Peace Jam is an international organisation, that collaborates with fourteen Nobel Peace Prize winners. It supports projects of students, who think global and act local. Each year, Peace Jam organises a two-day conference with workshops, music and guest lectures. The goal is for students to learn from and inspire each other to take action in their own environment: at home, at school and in their local community.

This year's Peace Jam Conference is supported by KU Leuven, UC Louvain, ULB and VUB.:::ω.

The World’s Health Challenges: The Ten Health Issues the World Health Organisation to Tackle This Year

 

 

 

|| January 14: 2019 || ά. The world is facing multiple health challenges. These range from outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases like measles and diphtheria, increasing reports of drug-resistant pathogens, growing rates of obesity and lack of physical inactivity to the health impacts of environmental pollution and climate change and multiple humanitarian crises. To address these and other threats, 2019 sees the start of the World Health Organisation’s new five-year strategic plan, the 13th General Programme of Work.

This plan focuses on a triple billion target: ensuring one billion more people benefit from access to universal health coverage, one billion more people are protected from health emergencies and one billion more people enjoy better health and well-being. Reaching this goal will require addressing the threats to health from a variety of angles. These are ten of the issues that will demand attention from WHO and its health partners in 2019. The Humanion only hopes that these plans and high aims and aspirations do not get to remain only as high ambitions but are followed through by actions not only by WHO and its partners but, also, by all the world’s states and governments, who must, also, put the highest possible political priorities in pursuance of these goals. The world is being devastated by health emergencies and the desperate level of deaths and suffering, easily preventable and it no longer is acceptable that the world’s populations are to be left to get on with their lives and health in this state of perpetual suffering.

Air Pollution and Climate Change: Nine out of ten people breathe polluted air every day. In 2019, air pollution is considered by WHO as the greatest environmental risk to health. Microscopic pollutants in the air can penetrate respiratory and circulatory systems, damaging the lungs, heart and brain, killing seven million people prematurely every year from diseases, such as, cancer, stroke, heart and lung disease. Around 90% of these deaths are in low and middle income countries, with high volumes of emissions from industry, transport and agriculture, as well as, dirty cookstoves and fuels in homes. 

The primary cause of air pollution, burning fossil fuels, is, also, a major contributor to climate change, which impacts people’s health in different ways. Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause 250,000 additional deaths per year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress.

In October 2018, WHO held its first ever Global Conference on Air Pollution and Health in Geneva. Countries and organisations made more than 70 commitments to improve air quality. This year, the United Nations Climate Summit in September will aim to strengthen climate action and ambition worldwide. Even, if, all the commitments made by countries for the Paris Agreement are achieved, the world is still on a course to warm by more than 03°C this century.

Non-Communicable Diseases: Non-communicable diseases, such as, diabetes, cancer and heart disease, are collectively responsible for over 70% of all deaths worldwide or 41 million people. This includes 15 million people dying prematurely, aged between 30 and 69. Over 85% of these premature deaths are in low and middle income countries. The rise of these diseases has been driven by five major risk factors: tobacco use, physical inactivity, the harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy diets and air pollution. These risk factors, also, exacerbate mental health issues, that, may, originate from an early age: half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14 but most cases go undetected and untreated; suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-19 year-olds.

Among many things, this year WHO will work with governments to help them meet the global target of reducing physical inactivity by 15% by 2030, through such actions as implementing the ACTIVE policy toolkit to help get more people being active every day.

Global Influenza Pandemic: The world will face another influenza pandemic, the only thing we don’t know is when it will hit and how severe it will be. Global defences are only as effective as the weakest link in any country’s health emergency preparedness and response system. WHO is constantly monitoring the circulation of influenza viruses to detect potential pandemic strains: 153 institutions in 114 countries are involved in global surveillance and response.

Every year, WHO recommends which strains should be included in the flu vaccine to protect people from seasonal flu. In the event that a new flu strain develops pandemic potential, WHO has set up a unique partnership with all the major players to ensure effective and equitable access to diagnostics, vaccines and anti-virals as treatments, especially, in developing countries.

Fragile and Vulnerable Settings: More than 01.6 billion people, 22% of the global population, live in places where protracted crises, through a combination of challenges, such as, drought, famine, conflict and population displacement and weak health services leave them without access to basic care.

Fragile settings exist in almost all regions of the world and these are where half of the key targets in the sustainable development goals, including, on child and maternal health, remains unmet.  WHO will continue to work in these countries to strengthen health systems so that they are better prepared to detect and respond to outbreaks, as well as, able to deliver high quality health services, including, immunisation.

Anti-microbial Resistance: The development of antibiotics, anti-virals and anti-malarials are some of modern medicine’s greatest successes. Now, time with these drugs is running out. Anti-microbial resistance, the ability of bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi to resist these medicines, threatens to send us back to a time when we were unable to easily treat infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhoea and salmonellosis. The inability to prevent infections could seriously compromise surgery and procedures such as chemotherapy.

Resistance to tuberculosis drugs is a formidable obstacle to fighting a disease, that causes around 10 million people to fall ill, and 01.6 million to die, every year. In 2017, around 600,000 cases of tuberculosis were resistant to Rifampicin, the most effective first-line drug and 82% of these people had multi-drug resistant tuberculosis.

Drug resistance is driven by the overuse of antimicrobials in people but, also, in animals, especially, those used for food production, as well as, in the environment. WHO is working with these sectors to implement a global action plan to tackle anti-microbial resistance by increasing awareness and knowledge, reducing infection, and encouraging prudent use of anti-microbials.

Ebola and Other High-Threat Pathogens: In 2018, the Democratic Republic of the Congo saw two separate Ebola outbreaks, both of which spread to cities of more than one million people. One of the affected provinces is, also, in an active conflict zone. This shows that the context, in which an epidemic of a high-threat pathogen like Ebola erupts is critical, what happened in rural outbreaks in the past doesn’t always apply to densely populated urban areas or conflict-affected areas.

At a conference on Preparedness for Public Health Emergencies, held last December, participants from the public health, animal health, transport and tourism sectors focussed on the growing challenges of tackling outbreaks and health emergencies in urban areas. They called for WHO and partners to designate 2019 as a ‘Year of action on preparedness for health emergencies’.

WHO’s RD Blueprint identifies diseases and pathogens, that have potential to cause a public health emergency but lack effective treatments and vaccines. This watchlist for priority research and development includes Ebola, several other haemorrhagic fevers, Zika, Nipah, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus:MERS-CoV and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome:SARS and disease X, which represents the need to prepare for an unknown pathogen, that could cause a serious epidemic.

Weak Primary Health Care: Primary health care is, usually, the first point of contact people have with their health care system and ideally should provide comprehensive, affordable, community-based care throughout life. Primary health care can meet the majority of a person’s health needs of the course of their life. Health systems with strong primary health care are needed to achieve universal health coverage.

Yet, many countries do not have adequate primary health care facilities. This neglect, may be, a lack of resources in low or middle income countries but, possibly, also, a focus in the past few decades on single disease programmes. In October 2018, WHO co-hosted a major global conference in Astana, Kazakhstan, at which, all countries committed to renew the commitment to primary health care made in the Alma-Ata declaration in 1978. In 2019, WHO will work with partners to re-vitalise and strengthen primary health care in countries and follow up on specific commitments made by in the Astana Declaration.

Vaccine Hesitancy: Vaccine hesitancy, the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines, threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease, it currently prevents two to three million deaths a year and a further 01.5 million could be avoided, if, global coverage of vaccinations improved.

Measles, for example, has seen a 30% increase in cases globally. The reasons for this rise are complex and not all of these cases are due to vaccine hesitancy. However, some countries, that were close to eliminating the disease have seen a resurgence.

The reasons as to why people choose not to vaccinate are complex; a vaccines advisory group to WHO identified complacency, inconvenience in accessing vaccines and lack of confidence are key reasons underlying hesitancy. Health workers, especially, those in communities, remain the most trusted advisor and influencer of vaccination decisions and they, must be, supported to provide trusted, credible information on vaccines.

In 2019, WHO will ramp up work to eliminate cervical cancer worldwide by increasing overage of the HPV vaccine, among other interventions. 2019,  may, also, be the year when transmission of wild poliovirus is stopped in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Last year, less than 30 cases were reported in both countries. WHO and partners are committed to supporting these countries to vaccinate every last child to eradicate this crippling disease for good. 

Dengue: Dengue, a mosquito-borne disease, that causes flu-like symptoms and can be lethal and kill up to 20% of those with severe dengue, has been a growing threat for decades. A high number of cases occur in the rainy seasons of countries, such as, Baangladesh and India. Now, its season in these countries is lengthening, significantly, in 2018, Baangladesh saw the highest number of deaths in, almost, two decades and the disease is spreading to less tropical and more temperate countries, such as, Nepal, that have not traditionally seen the disease. An estimated 40% of the world is at risk of dengue fever and there are around 390 million infections a year. WHO’s Dengue control strategy aims to reduce deaths by 50% by 2020.

HIV: The progress made against HIV has been enormous in terms of getting people tested, providing them with antiretrovirals, 22 million are on treatment and providing access to preventive measures, such as, a pre-exposure prophylaxis:PrEP, which is when people at risk of HIV take antiretrovirals to prevent infection.

However, the epidemic continues to rage with nearly a million people every year dying of HIV:AIDS. Since the beginning of the epidemic, more than 70 million people have acquired the infection and about 35 million people have died. Today, around 37 million worldwide live with HIV. Reaching people like sex workers, people in prison, men, who have sex with men or transgender people is hugely challenging. Often, these groups are excluded from health services. A group increasingly affected by HIV are young girls and women, aged 15–24, who are, particularly, at high risk and account for one in four HIV infections in sub-saharan Africa despite being only 10% of the population.

This year, WHO will work with countries to support the introduction of self-testing so that more people living with HIV know their status and can receive treatment or preventive measures in the case of a negative test result. One activity will be to act on new guidance announced in December 2018, by WHO and the International Labour Organisation to support companies and organisations to offer HIV self-tests in the workplace.:::ω.

The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination Asks France to Suspend the Montagne d'Or Mining Project in Order to Secure the Consent of the Affected Indigenous Communities of French Guiana

 

 

|| January 10: 2019: International Service for Human Rights News || ά. A gold mining project, envisaged on the territory of the indigenous peoples in French Guiana is sparking substantial criticism. In a rare move, a United Nations Committee is now requesting France to secure the consent of affected indigenous communities or suspend the project. The UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination has just adopted an 'early warning', asking France to secure the consent of the indigenous communities affected by the 'Montagne d'Or' mining project or suspend it.

In a confidential decision adopted on December 14 and released today, the Committee calls on France to 'ensure the right to consultation and free, prior and informed consent to all indigenous peoples affected by the Montagne d’Or project' and 'to consider the suspension' of the project until such consent is obtained. The move was prompted by a complaint lodged by the Organisation of the Native Nations of Guiana:ONAG with support from the International Service for Human Rights:ISHR. According to ONAG’s representative Mr Alexandre Sommer-Schaechtele, the Committee's decision constitutes a major step forward. ‘’UN mechanisms and UN member States have taken note of France’s attitude on this matter.

France has pledged to ‘make the planet great again’, yet, it is prepared to proceed with projects of that sort. We indigenous peoples have expressed our opposition to this project as it directly affects our environment. Without our consent, the Montagne d'Or project must be withdrawn.’’

This early warning is the first ever adopted by the Committee, concerning a situation in France. Traditional and customary indigenous authorities in French Guiana have voiced their opposition and concerns with the direct and indirect impacts of the project on their environment. The mine would cover an area of more than 800 hectares in the heart of pre-columbian remains, considered sacred by indigenous peoples. According to France's National Commission for Public Debate:CNDP, which undertook a large consultation process around the project in 2018, the perspective of indigenous peoples was, often, discredited in public debates.

‘’France undertook to eliminate racial discrimination in 1971 by ratifying the International Convention.’’ said Mr Francisco Cali Tzay, a member of the UN Committee and a Maya Kaqchikel of Guatemala. ‘’The lack of consideration, given to the opposition of indigenous peoples to the Montagne d'Or project, demonstrates that France must make further efforts to comply with the Convention.’’

The Russian-Canadian consortium, which leads the project, announced in November 2018 'major changes', that indigenous peoples and environmental protection groups, such as, the WWF immediately dismissed.

‘’The opposition of indigenous communities affected by the mining project is pretty clear.’’ says ISHR’s Mr Vincent Ploton. ‘’As suggested by the Committee, the project could constitute a violation of the principle of free, prior and informed consent, which is both recognised and protected in international law, especially, for indigenous peoples, affected by mining projects on their land.’

The World Health Organisation Reaffirms Its Commitment to Zero Polio Transmission and Health for All: WHO Director-General Gives New Year’s Wish to the Peoples of Afghanistan and Pakistan

 

 

|| January 09: 2019 || ά. The World Health Organisation:WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus highlighted the Organisation’s commitment to the final push to eradicate polio on a four-day visit to Afghanistan and Pakistan, the only two countries where wild poliovirus cases were reported last year. He commended the governments of both countries for their efforts to provide universal access to health services.

Dr Ghebreyesus, together with WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean Dr Ahmed Al-Mandhari, met with heads of statea and senior government officials in both countries and witnessed first-hand WHO-supported health programmes. He, also, visited the Emergency Operations Centre for Polio Eradication in Islamabad, Pakistan, where he commended the work of government and partners as one team under one roof and highlighted the critical importance of working closely with Afghanistan to prevent cross-border transmission.

“We must all give our best on this last mile to eradicate polio once and for all. My wish for 2019 is for zero polio transmission. You have WHO’s full support to help reach every child and stop this virus for good.” Dr Ghebreyesus said. On his visit to Afghanistan on January 05-06, Dr Ghebreyesus met with the President Dr Ashraf Ghani, the Chief Executive Dr Abdullah Abdullah, the Council of Ministers, representatives of key partners and non-governmental organisations active in health.

Together with the Minister of Public Health Dr Ferozuddin Feroz, he launched the newly developed Integrated Package of Essential Health Services. This package includes the most cost-effective evidence-based interventions, that reflect the most common causes of mortality and morbidity in the country. It keeps the focus on primary health care but adds non-communicable diseases and trauma care. Dr Ghebreyesus confirmed WHO’s support to the government to develop financing options to help ensure access to health services for all Afghans.

He, also, visited the WHO-supported Trauma Care Hospital run by the Italian NGO Emergency in Kabul, where he thanked humanitarian workers for their important work. He praised the close collaboration between WHO, Ministry of Health and International NGOs like Emergency, so that provision of essential trauma care can be accessed by people who need it most.

In Pakistan on January 07-08 Dr Ghebreyesus met with Prime Minister Mr Imran Khan and several senior officials, including, the Federal Minister for National Health Regulations and Co-ordination Mr Aamer, Mehmood Kiani, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari.

Dr Ghebreyesus accompanied the President of Pakistan, Mr Arif Alvi, to the launch of the first Pakistan Nursing and Midwifery Summit and the Nursing Now campaign. Pakistan faces a critical shortage of health workers, including, nurses and midwives. The country needs more than 720,000 nurses to achieve universal health coverage by 2030.

He, also, visited a basic health centre in Shah Allah Ditta where WHO signed an agreement with the Government of Pakistan to develop a model health care system for universal health coverage in Islamabad. Dr Ghebreyesus commended the Government for its initiatives to tax tobacco and sugary drinks, as well as, its plans to increase the health budget to 05% of GDP by 2023 from the current 0.9% of GDP.

The visit took place shortly after WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus took over the Chair of the Polio Oversight Board, which guides and oversees the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, spearheaded by national governments, WHO, Rotary International, UNICEF, CDC and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as a clear sign that the eradication of this disease is a priority for WHO. 

As recently as 30 years ago, wild poliovirus paralysed more than 350,000 children in more than 125 countries every year. In 2018 there were fewer than 30 reported cases in just two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Polio eradication requires high immunisation coverage everywhere, worldwide, to block transmission of this extremely contagious virus. Unfortunately, children are still missing out on vaccination for various reasons, including, lack of infrastructure, remote locations, population movement, conflict and insecurity and resistance to vaccination. Failure to eradicate polio from these last remaining strongholds could result in a resurgence of the disease, with as many as 200,000 new cases predicted worldwide every year within 10 years.:::ω.

The International Gender Equality Prize Receives Many Entries: The Prize Will Be Awarded in the Autumn 2019

 

 

|| January 07: 2018 || ά. The call for proposals for the next recipient of the International Gender Equality Prize closed at the end of the year. This Prize was founded by the Finland’s Government in Celebration of the country’s Centenary Year. Over three hundred nominations from all over the world were received for the Prize to be awarded in autumn 2019. The Prize is awarded to a person or organisation, that has advanced gender equality in a globally significant way.

Entries submitted by the general public will now be sent to a jury for evaluation, which will, then, make its recommendation for the recipient to the Government. The Government will make the final decision on the recipient of the Prize. The first recipient of the Prize was Dr Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor. “We are pleased with the number of proposals we received and would like to extend our thanks to all those, who submitted an entry.” says Ms Jorma Korhonen, the Secretary of the Jury from the Prime Minister’s Office.

“The Jury is looking forward to learning about the promoters of gender equality, who have been proposed by people from various parts of the world.” Ms Korhonen says.

The members of the jury for 2019 are Mr Pekka Haavisto, Member of Parliament and the Chair of the Jury; Ms Eva Biaudet, the President of the National Council of Women of Finland, Ms Katja Iversen, the President and CEO of Women Deliver, Ms Anneli Jäätteenmäki, Member of the European Parliament and Mr Dean Peacock, the Co-founder and Co-Executive Director of South African NGO Sonke Gender Justice.

The monetary value of the Prize amounts to EUR 300,000. The recipient does not benefit from the Prize money, rather she:he will direct it to a cause, organisation or person, that promotes gender equality.

Tsunami Hit Indonesia Again: More Than Two Hundred Dead and Many Hundreds Injured as Indonesian Authorities Try to Reach All Impacted Communities

 

 

 

|| December 23: 2018 || ά. A new Tsunami is reported to have struck the coastal area, the Sunda Strait, of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, with Pandenglang, South Lampung and Serang areas the worst affected. According to The Guardian report, quoting Indonesian officials saying that there were 222 people to have been confirmed dead and a further 843 injured as the Tsunami hit the area at 14:30 GMT on Saturday.

The United Nations Secretary-General Mr Antonio Guterres has issued a statement, expressing the readiness of the Agency to support the work of the Indonesian authorities. Generally, tsunami occurs immediately after an earthquake. Since, there did not appear to have any earthquake it was difficult to know whether a tsunami was about to hit the shore. The world, must, stand by and work with the Indonesian authorities not just in the immediate relief efforts and rebuilding but there should be some international mechanism to have a long-term international risk assessment of the most risk-prone areas of Indonesia and the neighbouring countries in that earth-zone to come up with some form of effective preventative and forecasting system, as well as, depending on the outcome of that risk assessment, whether any community needed to be relocated so that such in danger communities are relocated to safer areas. It is a drastic action but, one, if, necessary, must be, contemplated rather than coming back to this same danger again and again and again.

Because these tsunamis are not floods: they come and they kill and destroy. If, communities keep on getting destroyed and they keep on rebuilding and doing everything all over again and again and, each time, all the loss of lives and financial devastations, that come with tsunamis, these are not only unsustainable but, also, paralysing and hopeless.  After the repeated tsunami this year it is time the world comes up with an effective protective, preventative and social-relocation programme and work with and support the Indonesian authorities to respond with a vision to the future likely tsunamis to avoid loss of lives and devastation of communities and destruction of live stocks and economic and other vital civic infrastructures.  

BBC reported on the aftermath of the devastations and the Indonesian authorities responding to reach the effected communities relatively better than their previous responses. It was widely reported by many news agencies that there had not been registered any sign of any earthquake in the region and people are working on the assumption that the tsunami had been caused by the eruption of Anak Krakatau volcano, which, might, have caused underwater landslide. There is palpable further anxieties among the effected people and the authorities that further tsunamis, might, happen.:::ω.

Bio-Diversity: The Methodical But Ever-Going Work Must Be Done: Finland Conducts the First Ever Assessment in the World: Assessing the Country’s Threatened Habitats

 

 

|| December 18: 2018 || ά. The assessment of threatened habitat types in Finland report has just been published today, December 18, which is a complete description of the current state of all habitat types found in Finland, from the Baltic Sea, all the way to the fell area. Even, globally, the new ‘Red List’ is exceptionally comprehensive and thorough. The book includes assessments of, almost, 400 habitats types found in Finland. They were divided into eight main groups: the Baltic Sea, the coast, inland waters and shores, mires, forests, rock outcrops and scree, traditional rural biotopes and the fell area. Finland is one of the first countries in the world to have completed such a comprehensive assessment using the IUCN method. This gives Finland an opportunity to influence the development of the method and to participate in the debate on global solutions for nature conservation.

The assessment method applied was the scientifically valid Red List Criteria for Ecosystems:RLE, developed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature:IUCN. The previous assessment in 2008 was conducted applying a nationally developed method and the new assessment is, also, based on the same main elements, categorisation according to the quantitative and qualitative changes of the habitat. However, the new assessment is more comprehensive, reliable and internationally comparable than the previous one. Due to the differences in methodology, the new results can not be directly compared to the national assessment of 2008 but the changes and trends can be identified.

The key finding of the assessment was that about half, 48%, of the Finnish natural habitats are threatened in the whole country and, in Southern Finland, the share of threatened habitats is, even, higher. After the previous assessment, that was conducted 10 years ago, as a whole, the deteriorating trend of habitats has continued.

The assessment was implemented as a three-year project funded by the Ministry of the Environment and co-ordinated by the Finnish Environment Institute. The assessment was conducted by expert groups, that consisted of over 120 specialists from various Finnish universities, research institutes and expert organisations, representing key fields with a view to the topic. The material covered was vast: for example, the amount of sea habitat types examined was tenfold compared to the assessment conducted in 2008.

Based on the results, Finland will not reach its target of halting the loss of bio-diversity by 2020. However, the state of habitats can be improved and research information plays an important role in the process. “Assessments of threatened habitat types are among the most important indicators, that can be used in the monitoring of bio-diversity. The results of this expert assessment are alarming. We need to work more actively and with a broad scope to strengthen bio-diversity. The proposals, given by the expert group, provide comprehensive views for identifying and targeting future conservation needs.” says Mr Kimmo Tiilikainen, Finland’s Minister of Housing, Energy and the Environment.

The information gathered will be put to immediate use in Finland, for instance, in the Habitats Directive reporting in spring 2019 and in the upcoming updates of the national action plans, related to the improvement of the state of biological diversity and Finland's international commitments. In the future, the results will, also, serve various administrative sectors and research by means of such data as new spatial information materials.

Finland is currently conducting an extensive project, assessing threatened species, which is being implemented, using the established methodology developed by IUCN for assessing the state of species. The red list of Finnish species will be published at the beginning of 2019.

From Katowice COP24 the World Has Now At Least Got a Rulebook to Go Forward in Dealing with Climate Change: But Ambition in Mitigation Ambition in Adaptation Ambition in Finance Ambition in Technical Co-operation and Capacity Building Ambition in Technological Innovation Must Be Galvanised  

 

 

 

|| December 17: 2018 || ά. After two weeks of crucial negotiations, going overtime, the almost 200 parties gathered in Katowice, Poland, for the United Nations COP24 two-week climate change conference, adopted on Saturday, which is described by the UN as a ‘robust’ set of implementing guidelines for the landmark Paris Agreement 2015, aimed at keeping global warming well below 02°C compared to pre-industrial levels. Following several sleepless nights, cheers and applause welcomed the COP24 President, Mr Michal Kurtyka, as he opened the conference’s closing plenary meeting, which had been postponed close to a dozen times.

He thanked the hundreds of delegates in the room for their patience, noting that the last night was a long night. General laughter followed when the room’s big screens showed a delegate yawning whole-heartedly; the meeting had been set to wrap up on Friday. “Katowice has shown, once more, the resilience of the Paris Agreement, our solid roadmap for climate action.” said Ms Patricia Espinosa, who heads the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change:UNFCCC secretariat and, who was speaking on behalf of Mr António Guterres, the UN Secretary-General. Mr. Guterres, who has made addressing the impacts of climate change one of the top priorities of his term as the head of the UN, came three times to Katowice in the past two weeks to support the negotiations but, given the repeated delays, was forced to leave before the closing plenary, due to prior engagements.

The adopted guidelines package, called the ‘rulebook’ by some, is designed to encourage greater climate action ambition and benefit people from all walks of life, especially, the most vulnerable. One of the key components of the ‘Katowice package’ is a detailed transparency framework, meant to promote trust among nations regarding the fact that they are all doing their part in addressing climate change.

It sets out how countries will provide information about their national action plans, including, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as, mitigation and adaptation measures. An agreement was reached on how to uniformly count greenhouse gas emissions and, if, poorer countries feel they can not meet the standards set, they can explain why and present a plan to build up their capacity in that regard.

On the thorny question of financing from developed countries in support of climate action in developing countries, the document sets a way to decide on new, more ambitious targets from 2025 onwards, from the current commitment to mobilise US$100 billion per year as of 2020.

Another notable achievement of these negotiations is that nations agreed on how to collectively assess the effectiveness of climate action in 2023 and how to monitor and report progress on the development and transfer of technology.

“The guidelines, that delegations have been working on day and night are balanced and clearly reflect how responsibilities are distributed amongst the world’s nations.” said Ms Espinosa in a press statement. “They incorporate the fact that countries have different capabilities and economic and social realities at home, while providing the foundation for ever increasing ambition.

While some details will need to be finalised and improved over time, the system is to the largest part place.” Ultimately, the negotiations tripped on one key issue, which will be back on the table at the next UN climate change conference, COP25, set to take place in Chile. This is the matter known in specialised circles as, ‘Article Six’, regarding the so-called market mechanisms, which allow countries to meet a part of their domestic mitigation goals.

This is done for example through carbon markets or carbon trading, which enables countries to trade their emissions allowances. The Paris Agreement recognises the need for global rules on this matter to safeguard the integrity of all countries’ efforts and ensure that each tonne of emissions released into the atmosphere is accounted for.

“From the beginning of the COP, it very quickly became clear that this was one area, that still required much work and that the details to operationalise this part of the Paris Agreement had not yet been sufficiently explored.” said Ms. Espinosa, noting that the majority of countries were willing to agree and include the guidelines on market mechanisms but that ‘unfortunately, in the end, the differences could not be overcome’.  

In addition to the political negotiations among Member States on the Paris guidelines, over the past two weeks, the hallways of COP24 buzzed with close to 28,000 participants having lively exchanges, sharing innovative ideas, attending cultural events and building partnerships for cross-sectoral and collaborative efforts.

Many encouraging announcements, especially, on financial commitments for climate action, were made. Germany and Norway pledged that they would double their contributions to the Green Climate Fund, established to enable developing countries to act;  the World Bank, also, announced it would increase its commitment to climate action after 2021 to $200 billion; the climate Adaptation Fund received a total of $129 million.

The private sector overall, showed strong engagement. Among the highlights of this COP, two major industries, the sports and the fashion worlds, joined the movement to align their business practices with the goals of the Paris Agreement, through the launch of the Sports for Climate Action Framework and the Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action. Many more commitments were made and concrete, inspiring actions were taken.

“From now on, my five priorities will be: ambition, ambition, ambition, ambition and ambition,” said Ms Patricia Espinosa on behalf of Mr António Guterres at the closing planery. “Ambition in mitigation. Ambition in adaptation. Ambition in finance. Ambition in technical cooperation and capacity building. Ambition in technological innovation.”

To achieve this, the UN Secretary-General is convening a Climate Summit on 23 September 23, at UN Headquarters in New York, to engage Governments at the highest levels.:::ω.

All Mythologies: All Mythologies: Passengers are Requested to Disembark Immediately Without Asking for Evidence: Harmful Myths About Migration and Health Used to Justify Policies of Exclusion are Unfounded

 

 

|| December 14: 2018: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine News || ά. Myths about migration and health, including, that ones, that believe that migrants are disease carriers and are a burden on services, are not supported by the available evidence and all these ignore the critical contributions migration makes to the global economies, according to a new UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health. The Report is the result of a two-year project, led by 20 leading experts from 13 countries, including, Senior Author Professor Cathy Zimmerman from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

In 2018, there were more than one billion people on the move, a quarter of whom were migrants crossing international borders. Public health protection and cost savings are, often, used as reasons to restrict migrants’ access to health care or, to deny them entry. These myths are pervasive and harmful to individuals and society and the normalisation of these myths in popular discourse has allowed governments to introduce hostile and restrictive policies in many countries around the world, including, the detention of migrants at US borders and the denial of treatment to migrants in the UK’s NHS.

Through new international data and analysis, the Commission Report represents the most comprehensive review of the available evidence to date and shows that most common myths about migration and health are unfounded. The Report, also, includes the following recommendations to improve the public health response to migration:

::: Improving leadership and accountability. UN should appoint a Special Envoy on Migration and Health and a Global Migration and Health Observatory should be established.

::: International and regional bodies and states should re-balance policy making in migration to give greater prominence to health by inviting health representatives to high level policy making forums on migration.

::: Racism and prejudice should be confronted with a zero tolerance approach.

::: Universal and equitable access to health services and to all determinants of the highest attainable standard of health needs to be provided to migrant populations.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has conducted leading research on migration and health and pioneered research on vulnerable migrants for more than 20 years. In a 2011 PLOS Medicine review Professor Zimmerman called for ‘decision-makers from the migration and health sectors to sit at the same table with policy-makers from other sectors, such as, development, humanitarian aid, human rights and labour, to make migration safe and healthy for all’.

Professor Zimmerman said, “Governments around the world are well-aware that their economies depend on migrant workers, both for low-wage work in destination countries and for remittances in sending countries. Yet, states have done disappointingly little to assure the health and safety of migrant workers or, to stop the exploitation and human trafficking of millions of hard-working women and men, who toil invisibly in every corner of the globe.

Low-wage workers, must, stop being treated as disposable and be offered adequate numbers of work visas, that are fair and not tied to employers or to extortionate labour brokers. Until States stop siding with employers over migrant workers, individuals around the world will remain vulnerable to three-D jobs: dirty, dangerous and demeaning.”

Some of the key findings of the Commission include: while high-income countries have seen a greater rise in the percentage of international migrants, from 07.6% in 1990 to 13.4% in 2017, they are more likely to be students, who pay for their education or labour migrants, who are net contributors to the economy. In advanced economies, each 01% increase in migrants in the adult population increases the gross domestic product per person by up to 02%.

A new, comprehensive systematic review and meta-analysis concludes that international migrants in high-income countries have lower rates of mortality compared to general populations across the majority of disease categories. There is no systematic association between migration and importation of infectious diseases and the evidence shows that the risk of transmission from migrating populations to host populations is generally low.

Commission Chair Professor Ibrahim Abubakar, UCL, said, “Populist discourse demonises the very same individuals, who uphold economies and bolster social care and health services. Questioning the deservingness of migrants for health care on the basis of inaccurate beliefs supports practices of exclusion, harming the health of individuals, our society and our economies.

Migration is the defining issue of our time. How the world addresses human mobility will determine public health and social cohesion for decades ahead. Creating health systems, that integrate migrant populations will benefit entire communities with better health access for all and positive gains for local populations. Failing to do so could be more expensive to national economies, health security and global health than the modest investments required to protect migrants’ right to health and ensure migrants can be productive members of society.”

The Commission received funding from the Wellcome Trust, Rockefeller Foundation, UK National Institute for Health Research, the UCL Grand Challenges in Global Health, and the EU’s Health Programme.

|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.
