Rural Women

Rural women play a key role in supporting their households and communities in achieving food and nutrition security, generating income, and improving rural livelihoods and overall well-being. They contribute to Agriculture and rural enterprises and fuel local and global economies. They help to Eradicate Rural poverty and improve the well being of their families

Most women, who work in rural areas are illiterate but limited access to credit, health care, and education are among the many challenges they face, which are further worsened by the global food and economic crises.

With the above knowledge, Asabe Shehu Yar’Adua Foundation (ASYARFS) took it upon herself to empower and enlighten rural women of their importance to the society and how they can play their roles in the economic development of the nation.

Gender Equality

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful and sustainable world and even a prosperous world.

Over the last decades, there has been progress; more girls are going to school, fewer girls are forced into early marriage, more women are in positions of leadership.

Gender equality should be encouraged in our society for the growth of our society. Our girls/women should be trained and treated equally with the boys/men.

Gender equality also encourages a peaceful society i.e when the women are treated fairly there won’t be conflict in our society. It serves as a great relief to our society.

Gender equality has really helped us in the society, in the sense that the women are not jobless, they are not looked down on in the society. Our women should not be looked down on because they make the world at large i.e they dominate parts of the world.

Poverty

Poverty is a disease that kills in society, it turns people into rags and kills their dreams especially the uneducated and the ignorant ones. The less privilege are mostly entitled to poverty.

Poverty is the state of not being able to afford the essential necessity of life.

Majority of the world population live in poverty especially those living in the indigenous communities and the rural areas of developing and under-developing countries.

Investments in mental health, increased hospital funding, national action plans are all welcomed.

However, now it’s time to remove the financial discrimination all governments are imposing on one sector of the community; a community already stigmatised, and a community that has watched too many coronial inquiries recommend changes to the affordability of access to treatments that might have prevented tragic loss of life.

Beliefs and Mental Health.

If we feel that something is wrong, we should start to analyse our beliefs and identify which ones are really valid and which are not.

- How do we develop beliefs?

- We shall start by defining what a belief is.

- Where do our beliefs come from? Who chooses them?.

- Examples of beliefs.

- Is it possible to change our beliefs?.

Our mission is to conduct continuing awareness classes, documentary shows, poster exhibition, pamphlet distribution and other IEC activities on hazards of substances of abuse/addiction and to provide specific training for selected teachers and teenage students and volunteers from the general community to empower them in the fight against the evil of substance abuse.

Scope: RISA aims to serve both as an advisory and an educational role on hazards of substance using different tools such as training modules, pamphlets, documentary show, poster exhibitions, interactive sessions, seminars etc.

we are really busy on supporting our people to fight back over COVID-19. We have a lot of beneficiaries in the southern part of Bangladesh, especially on the mercylands on WASH program. The number of women and children among them are huge. There is a huge chance of spreading this virus in mass lavel in these areas, and it is already began. People are getting infected. And situation is getting worse for women and children. We really think that it is very much important to make sure that WASH program is taking place, for peoples safety. As the health facilities are not good enough there. These people neither have education, nor awareness on this. Most of the time, they depend on government relief to bear their livelihood. Situation is getting worse when even doctors are getting infected and died by serving them.

Poverty, Types and its Effects

Developing countries and under developed countries live in poverty. As the rate of corruption increases, the rate of poverty, illness, and exposure to deadly diseases increase in the country thereby bringing bad name to the people and the country.

There are different ways in which we can identify the types of poverty Urban Poor:

• limited access to health and education.

• Inadequate housing and services.

• Violent and unhealthy environment because of overcrowding.

• Little or no social protection mechanism.

Dear VNGOC Marketplace members!

We are happy to inform you that on August 21 the Smart Solutions Integration Agency hosted an expert discussion on drug use among elderly people for Russia’s leading drug abuse prevention medical experts and NGOs specializing in elderly social support programs. We included key discussion outcomes into our written statement submitted to INCB prior to its 128th session.

Our submission highlights the need to expand the INCB discussion and explore the issues of excessive use of over-the-counter medicine (OTC) to treat insomnia and anxiety, recreational drug use among older persons, ethics of OTC drugs’ marketing to elderly consumers. Furthermore, we suggest countries should consolidate available data and statistics related to benzodiazepines and OTC drugs misuse among older people in order to determine the magnitude of the problem.

As always, we are open to questions and inputs from the VNGOC Marketplace community!

AfricaNPUD was able to assist one of its members namely BAPUD (the Burundian network of drug users) in advocacy. Thus, a ministerial ordinance No. 630/894 was signed by the MOH. It reclassifies psychotropic substances, precursors and prohibited drinks. The big results of this advocacy are that methadone and cannabis are no longer on the list of dangerous products but are considered toxic. This means that the regulated medical use of these products is possible. Note that for the next grant from the 2021-2023 global fund, for activities intended for PWUIDs, more exactly activity 170 concerns the installation of two methadone clinics for a value of 10,000,000 USD.

Humpty Dumpty Resilience Education Project - This is a ‘learning together’ evidence-based teaching and learning series. It is aimed at assisting parents, mentors, teachers, and/or coaches to develop aspects of resilience in the emerging adult, specifically focusing on denying, and/or delaying uptake of alcohol and other drugs. This pilot is an introduction to the series and therefore specifically pitched at both facilitators and the target audience – teenagers, giving both an inclusive preview session of the projects focus, style and intent.

The #warondrugs is built on racism. It's time to decolonise drug policies. While repressive drug policies have weaponised the state against communities of colour, it is sadly crucial to remember it was in part designed to do just that.

Desafortunadamente, el COVID-19 durará indefinidamente entre todos nosotros, por lo que las Comunidades Terapéuticas (CTs) deben organizarse para llevar a cabo los nuevos procedimientos de recepción, especialmente teniendo en cuenta que el público atendido por los CT tiene grandes posibilidades de contaminarse con COVID- 19 debido a su vulnerabilidad social. Las CTs que tienen estructura, recursos humanos capacitados, garantía de equipo de protección personal (PPE) adecuado, flujo de notificaciones con el Departamento de Salud del municipio y plan de contingencia, pueden llevar a cabo el proceso de cuarentena (14 días) dentro de la propia organización. Por eso, la FEBRACT organizó este Manual de acuerdo con las orientaciones de la NOTA TÉCNICA PÚBLICA Nº 01/2020 de la Agencia Nacional de Vigilancia Sanitaria – ANVISA.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 will last indefinitely among all of us, so the Therapeutic Communities (TCs) need to organize themselves to carry out the new reception procedures, especially considering that the public served by the TCs has great chances of being contaminated with COVID- 19 due to their social vulnerability. TCs that have structure, trained human resources, guarantee of adequate personal protective equipment (PPE), notification flow with the municipality’s Health Department and contingency plan, will be able to carry out the quarantine process (14 days) within the organization itself. For this reason, FEBRACT organized this Manual in accordance with the guidelines of the PUBLIC TECHNICAL NOTE Nº 01/2020 of National Agency for Health Surveillance – ANVISA. ??
