Cumbre de Viena

Presidencia UE anuncia violación derechos mujer serán tema cumbre

La presidencia austríaca de la Unión Europea (UE) abordará en la próxima cumbre de Viena el asunto de los derechos humanos y especialmente los de la mujer, con una reunión sobre 'los brutales asesinatos de mujeres en México y Guatemala'.

'Los derechos humanos y en especial los de la mujer son parte de la agenda de las conversaciones' de la IV cumbre de la UE, América Latina y el Caribe, que se inicia el próximo jueves en esta capital, según anuncia hoy la ministra austríaca de Asuntos Exteriores, Ursula Plassnik, en un comunicado.

'Por eso, personalmente deseo hablar sobre la situación con representantes de la sociedad civil, antes de la cumbre oficial', dice Plassnik, quien ocupa la presidencia de turno del Consejo Europeo de Exteriores.

La nota informa de que la ministra mantendrá el miércoles próximo en esta ciudad una reunión con activistas femeninas pro derechos humanos de México, Guatemala y Colombia, para tratar sobre todo de los derechos de la mujer, así como de su papel activo en los procesos de paz y en la vida pública.

'Especialmente las mujeres que luchan por los derechos humanos suelen estar expuestas a grandes riesgos. Su compromiso cuestiona el papel tradicional de la mujer y despierta mucha resistencia', señala Plassnik.

La nota avanza que, en las reuniones que mantendrá durante la cumbre con sus homólogos latinoamericanos, la ministra austríaca tratará de este asunto, y en especial, de 'la serie de brutales asesinatos de mujeres en México y Guatemala'.

'En el siglo XXI ya no puede aceptarse que este tipo de crímenes no se investigue a fondo y que no se acuse a los autores. También la complicidad y la negligencia en su investigación deben ser penadas.


Nuestro deseo es acabar con la impunidad para estos crímenes', dice la presidenta del Consejo de Exteriores de la UE.

Desarrollo de la Mujer en el mundo Arabe

Desarrollo mujer fundamental para reducir pobreza en región árabe

Naciones Unidas, 8 may (PL/Patagonia Ciber Fem) El Secretario General de Naciones Unidas, Kofi Annan, aseguró hoy que el avance de la mujer en la región árabe es crucial para reducir las tasas de pobreza y desempleo, que calificó de alarmantes.

En mensaje a la sesión ministerial de la Comisión Económica y Social para el Occidente de Asia (CESOA) que sesiona en Beirut, expresó que la crisis en los territorios palestinos ocupados, Irán y otras partes de la región tienden a opacar otros desafíos apremiantes.

El Secretario General dijo que las tasas de 16 por ciento de pobreza y 13 por ciento de desempleo son alarmantes y requieren la adopción de acciones en muchos frentes, pero subrayó que el progreso y participación de la mujer son decisivos.

Annan llamó la atención sobre la próxima publicación del Reporte de Desarrollo Humano Arabe, que refleja los desafíos que enfrentan las mujeres en esa zona del mundo, así como sus avances en los campos legal, social, político y cultural.

New Page 2     CEE Bulletin on Sexual and Reproductive Rights  No 5 
(39) 2006


Sexual and reproductive health and rights constitute fundamental human
rights,

form a vital aspect of the women?s empowerment

and are key to the achievement of gender equality.







BURNING ISSUE






The 2006 High-Level Meeting and comprehensive review of the
progress achieved in the implementation of the Declaration of Commitment on
HIV/AIDS will take place on 31 May - 2 June at the United Nations in
New York. The meeting will involve all sectors of international
community, governments, civil society and the private sector. An unprecedented
number of almost 800 civil society organizations have been granted
accreditation, apart from those already accredited by ECOSOC. The civil
society will be provided with the opportunity to exchange views with Member
States during the hearing organized on 31 May. The hearing will be
chaired by the president of the General Assembly or his representative and
organized with participation of people living with HIV and broader
civil society. The involvement of civil society will also include
presentation slots in plenary, roundtable and panel sessions. The panel
discussions are expected to focus on the following themes:

? Breaking the cycle of HIV infection for sustainable AIDS
responses

? Overcoming capacity constraints that inhibit current
emergency responses and the movement towards universal access to
antiretroviral therapy

? Ending the increased feminization of AIDS

? Sustainable and predictable financing for scaled-up AIDS
responses

? Overcoming stigma and discrimination and changing the way
societies respond to people living with HIV.

A political declaration will be adopted at the culmination of the
High-level Meeting on 2nd June. Meanwhile the civil society has been
undertaking activities aimed at influencing the review process and the
final declaration. In April the ASTRA Network sent an open letter to the
Austrian Presidency of the European Union calling on the EU to
strengthen its further commitments to more effective prevention of HIV/AIDS
interlinked with sexual and reproductive health and rights policies as
well as to address the crucial related issues during the UNGASS review.








REGIONAL UPDATES





Czech Republic: number of abortions. Thanks to the promotion of
contraception and more effective pregnancy prevention the number of
abortions in the Czech Republic dropped in 2005 by 4 percent compared with
2004. One fifth of the total number of abortions, which is 26,450, was
performed because of health reasons. 35 percent of women who terminated
their pregnancy already have two children. Childless women who applied
for the procedure constitute 27 percent. The number of miscarriages is
about 30 percent of all early terminated pregnancies and is quite
stable.

Poland: child support in case of the denial of legal abortion.
Polish Supreme Court decided that the woman who was denied legal
abortion after she had been raped has the right to sue the proprietor of the
hospital for costs related to bringing up the child. The case was
brought by a women who wanted to terminate the 11-week pregnancy and had
received the required certificates from the gynecologist and the
prosecutor. When she called the hospital, the doctors estimated the gestation
for 14 weeks. The divergence of the opinions made it impossible for her
to have a legal abortion since the time limit for terminating the
pregnancy in case of rape is the end of the 12th week. When the baby was
born it became obvious that the doctors in the hospital were wrong. The
woman lost the case in civil courts, but the Supreme Court repealed and
the case went back to the lower court. This court, in turn, asked the
Supreme Court for a decision if the costs of child rearing in this w!
oman's case can be treated as "damage" which qualifies for
compensation. The answer of the Supreme Court is ?yes?.

Federation for Women and Family Planning





Poland: The conservative Polish government announced its plan to
reactivate the National Team for the Promotion of Natural Family
Planning. The crossministerial team will consist of gynecologists,
obstetricians, teachers and anti-abortion activists.

Russia: HIV in St. Petersburg. According to Rospotrebnadzor - a
new organization working in infectious disease surveillance and control
in the Russian Federation over 1,000 new HIV cases were recorded in St.
Petersburg during the first quarter of 2006. This means that the
situation has not improved. In St. Petersburg the percentage of people aware
that they are HIV positive and who seek assistance is lower than the
national average - and is 56% compared to 63% in all of Russia.

Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report





Ukraine: World bank suspends HIV/AIDS project. The World Bank
announced that it has suspended the 60 million USD project aimed at
combating Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS in Ukraine because of lack of progress in
the implementation and the government?s failure to distribute the funds
of which only 2% has been spent during three years. Paul Bermingham,
World Bank Director for Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova said that this
action is being taken by the World Bank since "the project has failed to
make any significant impact on the growing threat of HIV/AIDS in Ukraine
and the neighboring countries." The focus of project was to stop the
spread of the TB and HIV/AIDS among drug users, sex workers and prisoners
by using proven methods of prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Although the project has been suspended, the World Bank remains committed to
supporting Ukraine's efforts to prevent transmission and hopes for
reconstructing the project so it could be implemented effectively.

Uzbekistan: safe maternity. The regional conference "Making safe
maternity a reality" organized in Tashkent by UNFPA hosted governments
representatives as well as UNFPA, WHO and INICEF officers, from
Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and
Uzbekistan. During the meeting the strategies to mainstream maternal
mortality reduction to reproductive health programmes were discussed and the
first step was made towards working out the National Roadmaps for
attaining the millennium Development Goals related to maternal and newborn
health. According to MDG document the maternal mortality rate should be
reduced by three quarters before 2015 and by two thirds the mortality
ratio of children under five.

GLOBAL UPDATES









United Kingdom: Free condoms in night taxis. The Safe Ride Home
project aimed at reducing the number of sexually transmitted infections
will be launched in several cities across UK in the next few months.
Taxi drivers are provided with free condoms in discreet, black envelopes
which they could give to the passengers on their request on Thursday,
Friday and Saturday nights. The program was already tested in Brighton
last year.





European Union: Guidelines on safety and quality of human cells
and tissues. In February the Commission of European Communities adopted
technical rules for dealing with human cells and tissues, including
reproductive cells, throughout the Union. The new rules set out the
requirements related to donation, procurement, processing, preservation,
storage and distribution. The document also introduces the traceability
standards which will ensure that the cell or tissue can be followed from
the donor to the patient and back. "Hundreds of thousands of EU citizens
every year undergo some form of treatment based on the use of human
tissues and cells, and they must be able to trust in the safety and
quality of this process. The legislation that we have set down will ensure
that this is the case - wherever the tissue and cells come from or are
received within the EU" - said Markos Kyprianou, Health and Consumer
Protection Commissioner. The decision on which cells and tissues are !
permitted is under responsibility of the state.

Reproductive Cell Donation in the European Union. In February the
European Union published the report on the legal regulations concerning
the reproductive cell donation in EU Member States. The report is based
on the questionnaires and addresses the issues of confidentiality,
anonymity, non-remuneration, compensation, consent for egg cell donation as
well as importation and exportation of reproductive cells. The report
covers the situation in 22 member states and shows significant
differences between the legal regulations. For example, in 12 states the
importation and exportation of the cells remains unregulated by the law.

European Union: Fund for research on embryonic stem cells ?
petition. World Congress for Freedom of Scientific Research and Luca
Coscioni Association launched a petition calling on the European Parliament to
ensure that the Seventh Framework Programme on Research at least to
confirm the funding of research projects on stem cells obtained from
supernumerary embryos and that eligibility to funding be extended to
research projects on nuclear transfer. The petition was signed by Noble Prize
winners, scientists and several members of EU Parliament.





HIV-protective gel available by 2010. The researchers attending
the Microbicides 2006 Conference in Cape Town, South Africa, said that
microbicide which will help women protect themselves from the HIV virus
could be available by 2010 if the clinical trials involving thousands
of women prove successful. According to Rita Ramjee, Director of the HIV
Prevention Research Unit of the South African Medical Research Council,
the results from five clinical trials should be available by 2008. 2010
would be the earliest date for the microbicide to be available on the
market provided that the governments speed up the approval processes.
The microbicides delivered in the form of gels, films and sponges, can
be especially useful in societies where men are reluctant to use
condoms.

UNFPA: 700,000 more midwives needed. On 7th April, the World
Health Day, the United Nations Population Fund called for increased
investment in the health sector, including sexual and reproductive health. It
also paid special tribute to midwives who play a crucial role in saving
the lives and improving the health of mothers and infants worldwide.
?Despite their importance ? UNFPA message says ? they often face poor
working conditions, inadequate supplies and support and, as female health
workforce, are subject to gender discrimination.? In many countries
there is a shortage of midwives. In order to provide universal access to
good quality care at birth and to achieve the Millennium Development
Goal of improving maternal health 700,000 more midwives are needed.

UNFPA News





Vatican: Easing ban on condom use? The interview given to Italian
L?Espresso newsweekly by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, retired
archbishop of Milan, in which he stated that using condoms by spouses of which
one is HIV positive is choosing ?the lesser of two evils? preceded the
news that the Vatican plans to release a document allowing condom use
within marriage to prevent HIV infection. This information was denied by
cardinal Javier Lazano Barragan, head of Pontifical Council for Health
Pastoral Care, who said that the council will only draft an internal
study on the subject. He added that it will be the Pope who will make the
decision whether the Vatican will release the document or not.

Kaiser Daily





USA: Abstinence AIDS plan criticized by GAO. The US Government
Accountability Office issued a report which analyzed the results of the
US Global Leadership on HIV, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003
(President?s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief known as PEPFAR). The law
supports an approach often described as ABC ? Abstain, Be Faithful or Use
Condoms - and requires that at least 33 percent of prevention funding be
spent on ?abstinence-until-marriage? programs. Although in theory the
program should be designed to meet the local HIV prevention needs, in
practice the requirements limit the ability to allocate the funds in a way
that would address the prevention priorities of the supported
countries. According to the GAO report this has been experienced by 17 of 20
country teams of US workers. Two-thirds of the teams reported that the
guidelines created confusion about how to implement the ABC model under
PEPFAR. The US government?s emphasis on abstinence in a program aim!
ed at combating HIV/AIDS undermines the effectiveness of the 15
billion dollars prevention project and hampers efforts in the countries that
are meant to be helped.

El Informe sobre la salud en el mundo 2006 - Colaboremos por la salud

El Informe sobre la salud en el mundo 2006 - Colaboremos por la salud presenta una evaluación realizada por expertos acerca de la crisis de personal sanitario que atraviesa el mundo, así como varias propuestas ambiciosas para abordar ese problema a lo largo de los próximos diez años, empezando a actuar de inmediato. El informe revela que, según las estimaciones, existe un déficit de casi 4,3 millones de médicos, parteras, enfermeras y trabajadores auxiliares en todo el mundo. Donde mayor gravedad reviste esa escasez es en los países más pobres, sobre todo en el África subsahariana, precisamente donde mayor es la necesidad de trabajadores sanitarios. Centrándose en todas las etapas del ciclo de vida laboral de los trabajadores de la salud, desde su incorporación a la formación sanitaria, pasando por su contratación, hasta la jubilación, el informe traza un plan de acción a diez años en cuyo marco los países pueden conformar su fuerza laboral sanitaria con el apoyo de los asociados mundiales.

Denuncia

La noticia que nos llega de Argentina, realmente lamentable que la Iglesia Católica, siga oponiendose a la igualdad de oportunidades entre hombres y mujeres; suponemos, que podría ser, por un desconocimiento total de lo que es el CEDAW, que importante es, que todo conozcan este instrumento que nos salvaguarda contra la violencia de todo tipo. Esto también es una forma de violencia, porque vulnera nuestros derechos como mujeres. Esperamos que sea lo último. Aunque con Benedicto XVI a la cabeza de la iglesia, no espero gran avance.

Iglesias evangélicas cuestionan a Médicos Católicos.

Ante el pedido del  Consorcio de Médicos Católicos para que el Senado argentino  no ratifique el  Protocolo del Comité de la Eliminación de la Discriminación contra la Mujer de las Naciones Unidas (CEDAW), el Consejo Latinoamericano de Iglesias (CLAI) emitió un comunicado apoyado por las Iglesias Evangélicas,cuyo texto se transcribe.

 

“Como iglesias evangélicas en la Argentina, vemos con alarma la declaración del Consorcio de Médicos Católicos, que exhortó nuevamente al Senado argentino a no ratificar el Protocolo del Comité de la Eliminación de la Discriminación contra la Mujer de las Naciones Unidas (CEDAW). 

 

 Nos preguntamos como Iglesias si detrás de  esta declaración hay ignorancia en cuanto al tema del protocolo, su instrumentación,  o bien se trata de  una maniobra para instalar miedo sobre su tratamiento sin saber nada sobre los contenidos y  el mecanismo por lo cual se opere. 

 

 Las Iglesias Evangélicas, defensoras de los derechos humanos, hoy como en otros momentos claves en la historia de la Argentina, nos expresamos a favor de la defensa de todos los derechos, en este caso el de las mujeres y por lo tanto apoyamos sin modificaciones el Protocolo Facultativo del CEDAW.”

 

 

El CLAI  acompaña su declaración con algunas aclaraciones sobe la temática.

 

Por un lado informa que el CEDAW es una convención que es parte de la Constitución de la Republica Argentina (del año 1979) que forma el marco jurídico para tratar el tema de superar todas formas de discriminación y violencia en contra a las mujeres.

 

Con la ratificación del  Protocolo Facultativo, el Estado pone al alcance de las mujeres la posibilidad de apelar al ámbito internacional cuando los resortes nacionales no son efectivos o suficientes, para garantizar su derecho a no sufrir discriminación. 

 

También establece un mecanismo que permite al Comité de la CEDAW realizar investigaciones sobre situaciones que revelen violaciones masivas y sistemáticas de los derechos de las mujeres. 

 

Por otra parte, sostiene que contrario a lo que dice el Consorcio de Médicos Católicos, el Protocolo Facultativo no  compromete la soberanía del país.   Este instrumento jurídico no limita la soberanía nacional,  ni estipula nuevos derechos. No puede  limitar la soberanía nacional; solo da eficacia para poder instrumentar el CEDAW, que ya forma parte de la ley constitucional de la República Argentina.  Su objeto es garantizar la efectiva protección del derecho de las mujeres a una vida sin discriminación y sin violencia. + (PE)
