International Human Rights Day

Message of UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin on the Occasion of the International Human Rights Day

Today on International Human Rights Day, I applaud human rights defenders across the globe and everyone who participated in the 16 days of activism to end violence against women. Together, we must stand up for human rights and human dignity for every one every day.  This is a global goal worthy in itself and critical for the advance of peace, justice and sustainable development.
