Colombia: Humanitarian needs overview 2019

OCHA, Eds.: OCHA, (2019)


En los últimos cinco años y como parte del ciclo programático humanitario, se han identificado las personas con necesidades en Colombia (anual) en un esfuerzo conjunto de los socios del Equipo Humanitario de País, en coordinación con otras contrapartes del Estado. La afectación histórica de millones de personas por diferentes emergencias humanitarias, como consecuencia del conflicto, la violencia y eventos de desastres naturales, ha requerido la presencia e intervención complementaria al Estado, por parte de organizaciones humanitarias tanto nacionales como internacionales. Después de cuatro años de Diálogos de Paz entre el Gobierno y las FARC-EP se dio la firma de un Acuerdo, el cual debía también representar el alivio humanitario en muchas regiones golpeadas; no obstante, el deterioro de la situación humanitaria interna en Colombia, se refleja en más de 5.1 millones de personas con necesidades, como lo podremos evidenciar en este documento.

Röhrs S, Delany A & Mathews S, (2019)


In South Africa, young women and girls are exposed to extremely high levels of gender-based violence (GBV) and HIV infection. Given the links between the two epidemics, it is important that HIV prevention programmes also address violence against women and children. The Global Fund’s Young Women and Girls (YWG) programme is a multi-pronged HIV prevention programme targeting young women and girls and was implemented in 10 districts in South Africa from April 2016 to March 2019. This briefing paper reports on the lessons learnt from a process evaluation of the child protection component of the programme
