UN predicts end of Ebola outbreak in 2015 Last updated: 17 hours ago Anti- Ebola mission chief says global efforts could wipe out epidemic facing West African nations by end of year. The outgoing chief of the United Nations ' anti - Ebola mission has voiced hope that global efforts would put an end to the outbreak of the deadly virus in West Africa by the end of 2015 , but said that months of tough work remain. Anthony Banbury told reporters on Friday that 2015 could see the eradication of the epidemic that has struck six West African nations, with Guinea , Sierra Leone and Liberia bearing the brunt of the 20,000 infections and nearly 8, 000 deaths . Faced with criticism the world was not doing enough, UN Secretary -General Ban Ki-moon set up the UN Ebola Emergency Response ( UNMEER ) mission in September to coordinate global efforts against the outbreak, first identified in Guinea 's remote southeast in early 2014 .

World Prematurity Day 2014 17 November 2014 – Marking the fourth World Prematurity Day, the United Nations has underscored that the complications of preterm birth outrank all other causes as the world’s number one killer of young children. “On World Prematurity Day, I urge all partners to recognize the vital importance of addressing prematurity as we strive to improve women’s and children’s health,” said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in remarks on the Day. “Intensifying our focus on prematurity will sustain gains in child survival, accelerate progress towards the Millennium Development Goals [MDGs], and help lay the groundwork for ending all preventable deaths of women and children by 2030,” he added. World Prematurity Day is part of the Secretary-General’s Every Woman Every Child initiative, which was created to advance the Millennium Goals 4 and 5, to reduce under-five child and maternal mortality by two thirds and three fourths, respectively. The movement, which was launched four year ...

World leaders were gathering in New York on Thursday to spotlight the Ebola outbreak ravaging parts of West Africa, a meeting that will test whether the international community is prepared to bring to bear the resources needed to halt the swiftly spreading virus. United Nations officials are hoping that leaders will seize the moment to ramp up their response to the outbreak, which is already believed to have killed more than 2,900 people. Faced with a caseload that is doubling every three weeks, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for a “20-fold surge in care, tracking, transport and equipment” to get in front of the epidemic. Dr. Margaret Chan, director general of the World Health Organization, said Ebola was probably the “greatest peacetime challenge that the United Nations and its agencies have ever faced.” But despite major new commitments by the United States, Britain and others, the response has so far fallen critically short, humanitarian officials say. The outbreak is the largest ...
WORLD LEADERS GATHERED IN NYC It's the 69th annual United Nations General Assembly special debate, and it has not been a peaceful year. The 120-plus presidents and Prime Ministers maneuvering through New York City traffic will be grappling with issues such as ISIS, Ebola and Ukraine in their public speeches and private diplomacy. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, "the world is facing multiple crises. Each has its own dynamics and requires its own approach." There are 193 states in the United Nations. However, it's what the President of the United States does and says that tends to dominate the proceedings. President Barack Obama will be here for 48 hours. Not enough time to solve the world's problems. The U.S. leader's top priority will be terrorism. A Security Council meeting he will chair on ISIS and the threat posed by foreign fighters is a centerpiece of U.S. efforts here. The United States is hoping to get unanimous approval for a legally binding resolution compelling countries to crack down o ...
Bashar al-Assad failed to wipe out terror havens: US defends Syria airstrikes in letter to UN chief: The United States told the United Nations on Tuesday it led airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria because President Bashar al-Assad's government had failed to wipe out safe havens used by the group to launch attacks on Iraq. In a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power wrote, "The Syrian regime has shown that it cannot and will not confront these safe havens effectively itself." The strikes were needed to eliminate a threat to Iraq, the United States and its allies, she wrote, citing Article 51 of the UN Charter, which covers an individual or collective right to self-defense against armed attack. "States must be able to defend themselves... when, as is the case here, the government of the state where the threat is located is unwilling or unable to prevent the use of its territory for such attacks," Power wrote in the letter obtained by Re ...

Subject: Ebola: We’re running out of time Dear friend, More than 2,500 men, women and children have died from Ebola and the World Health Organization has said that the outbreak is “unparalleled in modern times." Families travel for miles and end up sitting outside overwhelmed clinics, waiting to die, because there is no room inside. Nothing could be more wrong. In a few days world leaders are gathering for emergency Ebola meetings at the United Nations. But we need them to do more than just talk at these meetings. We need them to take action. I just signed ONE’s petition asking Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to push leaders to step up and act on Ebola now. Will you sign it, too?
To End Poverty, Act on Climate Climate Change threatens to undermine the United Nations' progress in both of its critical missions -- peacekeeping and development: Hardship often leads to conflict, and the worsening impacts of Climate Change are causing hardship. That is what makes the UN Climate Summit on September 23 so important. Our development investments will fail if farmers no longer get rain or if floods wipe out their village; if ocean acidification decimate the fisheries on which coastal communities rely for their food and livelihoods; and if rising temperatures cause malaria and other vector-borne diseases to increase and spread to new areas. Some argue that we need to address poverty first and worry about Climate Change later. This is just plain wrong. As UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says, "Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth -- these are one and the same fight." Or, as his friend and colleague, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, has put it: "Climate ...

Following is UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for International Youth Day, to be observed on 12 August: A new publication from the United Nations shows that 20 per cent of the world’s young people experience a mental health condition each year. The risks are especially great as they transition from childhood to adulthood. Stigma and shame often compound the problem, preventing them from seeking the support they need. For this year’s observance of International Youth Day, the United Nations wants to help lift the veil that keeps young people locked in a chamber of isolation and silence. The barriers can be overwhelming, particularly in countries where the issue of mental health is ignored and there is a lack of investment in mental health services. Too often, owing to neglect and irrational fear, persons with mental health conditions are marginalized not only from having a role in the design and implementation of development policies and programmes but even from basic care. This leaves ...
Today: RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AP) — A United Nations school sheltering displaced people in the southern Gaza Strip was hit Sunday by what a U.N. official said appeared to be an Israeli airstrike, an attack that killed 10 people as Israel signaled a possible scaling back in the ongoing war. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the attack near the Rafah school as both "a moral outrage and a criminal act." The Israeli military had no immediate comment, though it confirmed it was redeploying along the Gaza border for a "new phase" of an operation aimed at stopping rocket fire toward Israel and destroying the Hamas underground tunnel network.
(CNN) -- A temporary cease-fire between Hamas and Israel expired Thursday, followed quickly by new rocket attacks from Gaza and a resumption of Israeli military airstrikes. Two Palestinians were injured in one of the Israeli airstrikes, which came after a five-hour lull requested by the United Nations for humanitarian reasons. At least three mortar shells were fired from Gaza during the cease- fire, and the Israeli military said a soldier was injured by an explosion during an "operational activity" near southern Gaza. Troops responded with mortar fire, the Israel Defense Forces said. Despite those incidents, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said both sides had "mostly respected" the cease-fire. "The pause shows that a cessation of hostilities is possible if all the parties demonstrate the necessary will and put the interests of civilians, who have borne the brunt of this escalation, first," Ban said in a statement. At least 230 Palestinians have been killed and close to 1,700 have been injured since Isr ...
North Korea has complained to the United Nations about a film starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, accusing the United States of sponsoring terrorism and committing an act of war by allowing production of a movie about a plot to kill its leader, Kim Jong Un. "The Interview" - due to be released later this year - is about an American television-show host and his producer who land an interview with Kim Jong Un, and are then recruited by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency to assassinate the North Korean leader, according to Internet Movie Database (IMDb). The letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon from North Korea's U.N. Ambassador Ja Song Nam, dated June 27 but made public this week, does not mention the name of the movie but talks about a plot that "involves insulting and assassinating the supreme leadership." "To allow the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent head of a sovereign state should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as ...

UN names 21 countries where rape in conflict United Nations: A new UN report names 21 countries where rape and other sexual violence has been committed in current and recent conflicts - from Afghanistan and Central African Republic to Myanmar and Syria. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's report, launched today, says there is now unprecedented political momentum globally to end conflict-related sexual violence but more action is needed regionally and nationally to respond to these crimes. "Covering 21 countries of concern in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, the report shows that this truly is a global crime," Zainab Hawa Bangura, the secretary-general's Special Representative on sexual violence in conflict, told a news conference. The report identifies 34 armed groups - including militias, rebel groups and government security forces - suspected of rape and sexual violence in conflict situations.
United Nations, Apr 17 2014: Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is warning that up to a million people could face famine in conflict-torn South Sudan unless there is immediate action. Ban told reporters before meeting yesterday with Kristalina Georgieva, the European Union's commissioner responsible for Humanitarian Aid, that "life and death" issues are facing the world's newest nation, fighting, malnutrition and dire humanitarian conditions. He said "millions are going hungry today" and the UN is seeing extremely high levels of malnutrition among hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the conflict, especially women and children. South Sudan saw massive violence sweep the country in December, when fighting broke out between troops loyal to the former Vice President and president. Thousands are believed to have been killed, and more than 1 million people have fled their homes.

A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a Kabul restaurant filled with foreigners and affluent Afghans, while two gunmen sneaked in through the back door and opened fire Friday in a brazen dinnertime attack that killed at least 14 people, officials said. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said four United Nations personnel were killed in the "horrific attack." The U.N. chief condemned the attack "in the strongest terms," saying "such targeted attacks against civilians are completely unacceptable and are in flagrant breach of international humanitarian law," U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said. Ban said the U.N. personnel, who were not identified, were among at least 14 foreigners and Afghans killed, including a number of people from other international organizations. Kabul police say 16 people were killed. Ban demanded an immediate end to the attacks.

New York, NY (December 12, 2013) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) strongly condemns the execution today of Abdul Quader Mollah, the Assistant Secretary General of Bangladesh’s Jamat-e-Islami party by Shaikh Hasina’s government. ICNA President Naeem Baig said “this is a political murder and a dark day for justice”. Death sentences of political prisoners being handed down through unjust judicial process may plunge Bangladesh into violence, political tyranny, and social anarchy. World leaders, including US Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had personally appealed to the Bangladesh Prime Minister to halt the execution. United Nations, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and several international bodies have condemned the way these courts were established and trials conducted. The judgment is a result of a trial where the defense teams faced severe obstructions including abduction of their witnesses, disallowing defense evidence or witnesses, and ci ...
9 December, 2013 23:17 UN chief concerned about missing nuns in Syria UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Monday in a statement he is “deeply troubled” by the targeting of religious institutions and representatives in Syria following the disappearance of 12 nuns from Saint Tecla Orthodox Convent in Ma’aloula. “The Secretary-General joins in the appeals for their safety and well-being, and that of all persons who may be detained against their will in Syria,” the Secretary-General said. 22:03 UN and Israel reach Gaza building supplies agreement Israel reached an agreement with the UN to reverse a ban on building materials into the Gaza Strip that was put in place on October 13 following the discovery of a tunnel operating under the Israel-Gaza border.

This month she will mark her 16th birthday by coming to the United Nations and sharing an important lesson about education – particularly for girls around the world. Malala is the courageous young education rights campaigner from Pakistan who was targeted and shot by extremists on her way to school. After a long road to recovery, Malala is back and determined to keep making her voice heard. On 12 July, Malala will be joined by hundreds of students from more than 80 countries in a unique Youth Assembly, where diplomats will take a back seat as young people take over the UN. They will gather to issue a global call for quality education for all.

Philippines to stay in Golan if security is boosted The Philippines said Friday it would keep its 340 peacekeepers in the Golan Heights provided it gets requested additional heavier weapons and protection. Philippine President Benigno Aquino would reject a proposal to pull the Filipinos out if the United Nations met his requests to boost security, Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said in a statement. "Subject to meeting considerations which the Philippines has made to enhance the security and safety of our peacekeepers, the president has expressed the Philippines is prepared to continue its UNDOF participation," he said. Aquino said last month the Philippine troops needed anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, and protection against chemical warfare. Escalating violence against the UN Disengagement Observer Force, which monitors a 1974 truce between Israel and Syria, has seen other countries pull out their troops. Austria, previously the top contributor, will withdraw its 377 soldiers by the end of this ...

Here, she writes a letter asking you to sign up to support the campaign… Hello there, On 15 June we saw cowardly and desperate attempts by terrorists to deny girls in Pakistan their right to education.

Somalia cases of killing, maiming, abuse of children halved -U.N. * Report blames both militants and Somali forces for abuses * U.N. urges enforcement of ban on Somalia charcoal trade by Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS, June 3 (Reuters) - The number of children killed, maimed, abused and recruited to fight in Somalia dropped by more than half in the first quarter of 2013 due to less fighting between Islamist al-Shabaab militants and government forces, the United Nations said on Monday. In a report to the U.N. Security Council on Somalia, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said there had been 552 verified "grave violations" against children between January and March, down from 1,288 cases during the same period in 2012. Almost two-thirds of the violations were committed by al Shabaab militants, who affiliated themselves with Al Qaeda in February last year, while the rest were blamed on the Somali National Security Forces, the report said. "The downward trend in killing, maiming and recruitment are attribut ...

The decision of the EU to lift the embargo on arms to the Syrian rebellion - at a time when efforts are being made to try to meet the Damascus authorities and armed opposition - is everything you want except an incentive to encourage the search for peace that was to be their first and last goal. Meanwhile, the carnage that decimated the Syrian people continues. The second is that clashes with the tasks that should have been those of the UN is the draft ...
Floribert Chebeya Bahizire (13 September 1963 – 2 June 2010) was a leading Congolese Human Rights activist in the Democratic Republic of Congo, hailed by the United Nations as "a champion of Human Rights".His death led to calls for an investigation from more than 50 organizations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, many countries and several senior UN officials, including Ban Ki Moon, Navi Pillay, Allan Dos and Philip Alston. Bahizire was born in Bukavu. He worked from the early 1990s until his sudden suspicious death in 2010, of which the cause has yet to be established. He was leader of the Voix des Sans Voix (Voice of the Voiceless) Human Rights organization. His work led to him being issued with repetitive threats from police. Throughout his life Chebeya denounced several governments and rulers, including the dictator Mobutu, his successor President Laurent Desire Kabila and the incumbent government at the time of his death. Chebeya had been asked to meet with Congo's Inspector ...

PLEASE SEND THIS Email... Don't Delay! This is dangerous, insulting and must stop! Email: ecuSecretary General Ban Ki-Moon, As a concerned citizen, I am deeply troubled by the fact that Ann Dismorr, UNRWA’s director in Lebanon, had her picture taken holding a map within which Israel has been erased. This behavior is appalling for a International Peace keeping organization. Doing such an action encourages the Palestinians to continue to be intransigent and refuse to negotiate a peace agreement with Israel, since it gives them the hope that they can receive every thing that they want without having to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Since Israel is a member state of the United Nations, the United Nations should force UNRWA to only utilize maps that clearly show the internationally recognized borders of the State of Israel, areas under Palestinian Authority control, and districts that are under dispute between the two sides, whose status will be finalized upon the completion of a peace agreement tha . ...

New York, February 06 (QNA) - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon restated his commitment to promote Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts towards achieving the legitimate aspirations of both peoples. Addressing the opening of the 2013 session of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People in New York last night, the UN chief noted that the General Assembly voted to accord Palestine the status of non-Member observer State last November, and that moment has resonated deeply within the United Nations and underscored the urgency for achieving the two-State solution, adding that there is no substitute for negotiations to this end. "Negotiations must result in an agreement ending the conflict and the occupation that began in 1967 and leading to two States Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace, security and mutual recognition of each other’s legitimate rights, including self-determination," he said. He underlined that each State must uphold commitments to ensure ...

United Nations Out for LGBT Rights at Sixth Annual Forum Added by admin on December 19, 2012. BY ANDY HUMM | At the sixth annual United Nations conference on € ’³Leadership in the Fight Against Homophobia€ ’´ that marked Human Rights Day on December 11, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was flanked by singers Ricky Martin and Yvonne Chaka Chaka of South Africa.

The United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty Will Disarm America . . . . . . Unless We Stop It Dear Conservative Friend, As you read this, the United Nations is scheming to destroy one of the most fundamental individual rights provided to us in the Constitution – a right our Founding Fathers intended us to have forever. From July 2-27, 2012, the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty is taking place in New York City. If passed, the Arms Trade Treaty will set up an international agency that will control the availability of arms – and potentially civilian firearms and ammunitions – around the world. The newly established agency will also have the authority to tell signing nations what they can and cannot sell within their own borders. In other words, the passage of the Arms Trade Treaty could effectively REPEAL the Second Amendment! And the only things standing in the way of overzealous international gun-control advocates eradicating one of our most basic, most American civil liberties is Barac ...

June 9, 2012 by Agency Reporter Leave a Comment Niger has lost seven of its soldiers serving as United Nations peacekeepers in an ambush in south-west Ivory Coast. The peacekeepers were on patrol on Friday near Liberia’s border between the villages of Tai and Para after hearing rumours of an imminent attack on communities in the region, UN officials said. Eight civilians also died in the attack while Ivory Coast said it lost some soldiers, although it did not give details. Anouk Desgroseilliers, a spokeswoman for the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs, told AFP that a woman was among at least eight civilians killed in the raids. Ivory Coast says it will launch a hunt on Monday to find the perpetrators of the ambush – believed to be the first to target UN troops directly, BBC reports. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said he was “outraged” by the deaths. UN peacekeepers were deployed to Ivory Coast in 2004 to help end the country’s civil war and have stayed through the countr ...
