Sexual Violence in Detention

International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), (2017)

We have long been working to prevent and end sexual violence in armed conflicts and to ensure that the countless victims – men, women, boys and girls – receive the help they need.
In this document, we examine sexual violence specifically in relation to people deprived of their liberty. We consider why individuals are at risk of sexual violence in detention and how to prevent and reduce that risk. We also set out some potential steps to take when sexual violence occurs.

World report on child injury prevention

World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Eds.: Peden, Margie et al., (2008)

Every year, around 830 000 children die from unintentional or "accidental" injuries. The vast majority of these injuries occur in low-income and middle-income countries. However, dozens of prevention strategies and programmes exist. If they were integrated into other child survival programmes and implemented on a larger scale, many of these deaths and much of the injury-related disability could be prevented.
The report documents the magnitude, risks and prevention measures for child injuries globally –particularly for drowning, burns, road traffic injuries, falls and poisoning.

Rapport mondial sur la prévention des traumatismes chez l’enfant

Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS), Fonds des Nations Unies pour l’enfance (UNICEF), Eds.: Peden, Margie et al., (2008)

Plus de 2000 enfants meurent chaque jour des suites de traumatismes involontaires ou accidentels. Chaque année des dizaines de milliers d'autres sont hospitalisés pour des blessures qui les laissent souvent handicapés à vie.
Ce rapport conjoint de l'OMS et de l'UNICEF établit le premier bilan mondial des principales causes à l'origine des traumatismes involontaires touchant des enfants: les accidents de la route, les noyades, les brûlures, les chutes et les empoisonnements.

Daily iron supplementation in postpartum women

World Health Organization (WHO), (2016)

Iron deficiency is one of the most common forms of nutritional deficiencies, particularly among vulnerable groups such as women, children and low-income populations. Iron deficiency often precedes anaemia, and anaemia during pregnancy is one of the strongest predictors of anaemia during the postpartum period, beginning just after childbirth throughout the subsequent 6 weeks. The consequences of iron deficiency and anaemia during the postpartum period can be serious and have long-term health implications for the mother and her infant.
This guideline reviews the evidence on the safety and effectiveness of iron supplementation in postpartum women.
