Lessons Learnt From #Publichealth

We see the pattern globally over & over again of governments not taking a strong #humanitarian leadership stand & the devastation it causes a group of people

Unfortunately the treatment of #HCW in #COVID19vic is now an example

#publichealth aims to improve health of all members of society through equitable distribution & utilisation of goods & services

Programs to improve health are only as good as the government & rule of law they operate under: sustainable +ve change comes from wise leadership

#publichealth covers all members of society & the sustainable development goals (#SDGs) are for all members of society

It seems unnecessary to state it but in the #COVID19vic era it now must be clearly stated:

Public Health & SDGs Apply To Healthcare Workers #HCW

Almost every tweet supporting #Armenia is followed by #Azerbaijan'is spaming with photos of #Khojaly massacre and blaming Armenians in the replies.
This is a thread of events that actually took place in Khojaly.

In 1988 the lawful demands of the people of Artsakh to exercise their right to self-determination were met with anti-🇦🇲 pogrom on Feb.27-29, in the 🇦🇿'i city of Sumgait. This was the embodiment of 🇦🇿 leadership’s policy of xenophobia, ethnic cleansing and deportation of Armenians
To the aspiration of people of Nagorno-Karabakh to exercise their right of self-determination was met by ethnic-cleansing programs of Armenian population done by Azerbaijanis.

@verified We've paused general public, who we think don't deserve our so called verified club, submissions for verification?

@Twitter What’s happening?! I pretend not to know?

@TwitterSupport Here to help. Officially. To only the selected & elected? Plz don't disappoint users.
16 Nov 2017 is the date when Twitter verification program went on hold, since then it's not open for general public.

@Twitter can you please specify what does "general public" mean & those users whose profile got #blue batch during the profile verification suspension period? 1/n
It's shame that verified profile is only for selected & elected but not for general public who greatly contribute to #twitter platform.

Why general public who are true, accurate & justified users be denied blue batch opportunity. 2/n

I’ve signed the Humanity Forward Pledge, which calls for $2,000 per month to every American for the duration of this pandemic and $1,000 forever.
Before #Covid_19, I knew that UBI was an important safety net for people in my community. The United States has exercised a war on the poor for generations and without this basic income too many families in #NY15 and in the country will fall through the cracks.
I’ve signed this pledge because it will create positive change and could save families and lives in my district.

Thread 1.| Protests and strikes today in #Lesvos, #Chios, #Samos, #Leros, #Kos against the presence of #hotspots and the plans for new closed reception and detention centers. All the trade associations and local authorities call for the protest. #OpentTheIslands #Refugeesgr
2. The main tone is that the local population is angry with the situation and the negligence of the government. In ##Chios & in Lesvos a lot of people participated in the protests. The officials' speeches were pointing the need to stop the new centers and this inhuman situation
3. The general atmosphere from the published texts seems to be mainly against #refugees, strengthening #racism and #xenophobia, although there are also voices with a #humanitarian approach like the union of Chios Psychiatrists…

Not surprisingly, I'm feeling a bit ambivalent about UNICEF NZ's support for YouTube travel vlogger Indigo Traveller to visit Afghanistan (thread)
The good news: It's a better effort than when ICRC invited Nas Daily to Papua New Guinea, "the most undiscovered country" (1/n)…
Although he acknowledges his UN-facilitated special access, I'm a bit surprised he's not mentioning it right from the start, but it's mentioned in video info: "This video is part of a United Nations & UNICEF fundraising project. UN-supported campaign". Ok

@unhcr #UNHCR

According to research by the weekly magazine "@sternde", employees of the @UN refugee agency @Refugees were able to enable #Africans to move to the #West in exchange for #cash payments. Among other things,
the #employees issued false #papers with which the #Africans made it onto the coveted lists of the so-called "resettlement" program.
Several western states, including #Germany, offer refugees who are particularly worthy of #protection a secure future in their country. Above all,
people who are at risk of #disease and #persecution should benefit from this.However, since there are currently only 50,000 to 60,000 such resettlements per year worldwide, the chances of getting one of the places are negligible.

2019 in Review📅Article by @charlottecuthbo (Thread👇)

#BorderCrisis Peak, #Mexico Cooperation, and Judicial Wrangling

The year began with President Trump declaring a #NationalEmergency at the southern #Border.…
The #BorderCrisis escalated, and in May, nearly 133,000 #IllegalAliens were apprehended by #BorderPatrol, with a further 11,000 presenting at ports of entry without legal documentation.

By the end of fiscal 2019, almost 1 million people had entered the US illegally.
Over 600,000 of them were either individuals within a family unit or unaccompanied minors—both vulnerable populations that often arrived sick and required more care than #BorderPatrol was set up to provide.

#Migration #Libya Do you know that more than 30% (personal estimate) of national @UNHCRLibya partner staff have resigned in the last 2 years? Can you guess why?

- Those are experienced people who held key positions & managed the work since 2014 when #UNHCR wasn't on the ground.
- One has refused a management position just because of the current mess & the sudden redirection of #refugees from GDF/Detention to the CDC.
- Others were burning out due to the moral clashes they face in their daily work that contradicts their idea of #humanitarianPrinciples
Many others including myself 3 years ago, I was a partner staff to #UNHCR in #Libya
I wasn't satisfied with the knowledge gap& the top-down approach from UNHCR to its frontline partners as risk transfer strategy, AND for not providing efficient aid while we had potential+capacity

While demanding #humanitarian aid from across the #globe, the #Palestinian Authority spent $2.1 billion to fund #Islamic #terrorism between 2011 and 2018.
Billions of #dollars in foreign aid have been unaccounted for – money that was supposed to go to #Palestinian citizens under the oppressive and #militant #jihadist government run by President Mahmoud Abbas and the #Islamic #terrorist group #Hamas
money that supposedly went to programs that haven’t existed for many years.

[THREAD] Morning DC, as a 🇪🇺 newly arrived at the @Washinstitute, I’ve been surprised by several things in the current US discussion on #Syria and the fight against #ISIS. I have focused on two in this piece on @thehill: #endlesswars & #burdensharing… 1/
I have indeed heard a lot about the need to stop « #endlesswars » in the #MiddleEast. European can probably see good reasons for this from #Afghanistan to #Iraq, as many of them opposed the war in Iraq. However...2/
Seen from #Europe, #Syria is not one of US #endlesswars, but a low-cost, high-efficiency CT op. It has not been shaped by US intervention, rather by US reluctance to intervene. Europeans who opposed the US-led war in #Iraq consistently called for more U.S. leadership in Syria. 3/

Following the launch of #Turkish military operations and the extremely volatile situation in northeast #Syria @MSF has taken the difficult decision to suspend the majority of its activities and #evacuate all its international staff from northeast Syria. #OperationPeaceSpring
@MSF Since Wednesday 9 October, the extreme volatile situation in northeast Syria has forced MSF international staff to evacuate from MSF’s projects in Ain Issa, Al Hol, Tal Abyad, Tal Tamer, Tal Kocher/ Yaroubiyah, #Kobane/ Ain Al Arab and #Raqqa city. #OperationPeaceSpring
@MSF These have been extremely difficult decisions, as @MSF

@CHarlandICRC (Deputy Permanent Observer & Legal Adviser, @ICRC_NYC) will deliver a statement to #UNGA 6th Committee on "Measures to eliminate international #terrorism"

Watch live:…
@CHarlandICRC #Terrorism negates the fundamental principle of humanity. It is contrary to many underlying principles & core objectives of int'l humanitarian law (#IHL).

The @ICRC condemns acts of terrorism & is deeply distressed by the devastating impact of these acts
@CHarlandICRC @ICRC Member States must be clear and firm about the need for counter-terrorism activities to be conducted with full respect for the protections afforded to all individuals by international law, in particular #IHL and #HumanRights law

On World Humanitarian Day 2019 we honour the work of #WomenHumanitarians in crises throughout the world. We focus on the #unsung heroes, who have long been working on the front lines in their own communities in the most difficult terrains

..from the war-wounded in Afghanistan, to the food insecurity in the Sahel, to those who have lost their homes and livelihoods in places such as Central African Republic, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen. #WorldHumanitarianDay
..and we salute the efforts of women aid workers from across the world, who rally to people in need.
#Women make up a large number of those who risk their own lives to save others. They are often the first to respond and the last to leave. #WorldHumanitarianDay
