New York United Nations Headquarters 03/08/2016

Affecting at least 26 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, and spreading to Asia, Africa and Pacific, Zika Virus and its suspected link to birth defects was declared by World Health Organization (WHO) as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 1 February 2016. The Zika Virus is transmitted through the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito, the same mosquito that transmits dengue and chikungunya. The symptoms are generally a mild fever usually accompanied by muscle or joint pain. There is no vaccine or treatment for the disease. Since the Zika outbreak intensified in October, there has been a surge in Brazil of microcephaly – a congenital malformation where babies are born with smaller than normal head size and underdeveloped brains that can lead to severe developmental disorders. While there is no definite evidence linking the virus and microcephaly, there has been an abnormal increase of birth defects, with close to 4,800 suspected cases of microcephaly reported by the Brazilian Ministry of Health from October 2015 through early February 2016. WHO has warned that the virus could infect as many as three million to four million people within 12 months in the Americas. El Nino and La Nina weather phenomenon, and their impact on the environment and sanitation, are expected to aggravate the situation in 2016.

Statement by the founder chairman Kala New York on the Human Rights in the United States. 

United Nations Headquarters 

The protection of fundamental human rights was a foundation stone in the establishment of the United States over 200 years ago.Since then, a central goal of U.S. foreign policy has been the promotion of respect for human rights, as embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The United States understands that the existence of human rights helps secure the peace, deter aggression, promote the rule of law, combat crime and corruption, strengthen democracies, and prevent humanitarian crises. Because the promotion of human rights is an important national interest, the United States seeks to:

 


- Hold governments accountable to their obligations under universal human rights norms and international human rights instruments;

- Promote greater respect for human rights, including freedom from torture, freedom of expression, press freedom, women's rights, children's rights, and the protection of minorities;

- Promote the rule of law, seek accountability, and change cultures of impunity;

- Assist efforts to reform and strengthen the institutional capacity of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the UN Commission on Human Rights;

and Coordinate human rights activities with important allies, including the EU, and regional organizations.

Kala International Organization and its partners are leading global efforts to end preventable child deaths, working with governments, national and international agencies, and civil society to support effective and life-saving actions at each phase in a child’s life, from prenatal care in a mother’s pregnancy to effective and affordable health care through childhood and into adulthood. More than four years of experience tell us that we can turn back child mortality and meet the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. But we must act together, and we must act now.
