On the occasion of Human Rights Day 2016, the United Nations Country Team in Serbia, the Council of Europe Office in Belgrade, and the OSCE Mission to Serbia take the opportunity to recall our commitment to equal dignity and rights for all.
As women with disabilities continue to be one of the most excluded, neglected and isolated groups in the Serbian society, UN Women in Serbia has organised a conference to address the issue on the occasion of December 3 — the International Day of Persons With Disabilities
On this International Day of Persons with Disabilities, I urge national and local governments, businesses and all actors in society to intensify efforts to end discrimination and remove the environmental and attitudinal obstacles that prevent persons with disabilities from enjoying their civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted with a promise to leave no one behind. Nowhere is this more important than in tackling AIDS. Supporting young, vulnerable and marginalized people will change the course of the epidemic." — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
UN Women in Serbia has joined a global campaign "16 Days of Activism" by setting up a giant interactive installation of SoS telephone at the Republic Square as a wake-up call against violence against women and girls.
At long last, there is growing global recognition that violence against women and girls is a human rights violation, public health pandemic and serious obstacle to sustainable development. Yet there is still much more we can and must do to turn this awareness into meaningful prevention and response.
