Migration chief calls for all displaced to be included in national COVID-19 vaccination plans
"Head of the un migration agency iom is strongly advocating for governments everywhere to respect the fundamental right of healthcare when it comes to ensuring vulnerable migrants in the displaced get equal access to covid nineteen vaccines in an interview for us news antonio vitorino once migrants to be included in all plants regardless of their legal status adding that im stands ready to provide practical support to countries who need help battling the pandemic iom's. Greta began by asking the right. To general to outline the overall impact of the pandemic on migrants and the displaced coming matinees had an enormous impact on people on the move first for most that house impact because usually migrants leaving very crowded lively places households and of course they are prone to be infected. And secondly we've lockdown with travel restrictions. There are almost three million migrants blocked stranded all over the world so there are also impact and also social economic impact very serious ones that Underline the vulnerabilities tyrants everywhere in the world. It seems that there's not really going to be back scenes for everyone immediately. And i was wondering if you could tell us i o n recommendations regarding the prioritization and the inclusion of migrants in the various vaccine plans that national governments are putting in place. We've telling me advocate to have and refugees internally displaced people fully include in the vaccination plans you respected their legal status because as the secretary general of the united nations are very clearly. No omni safe a delivery body safe so the reasoning for the interest of the host communities. He's also to guarantee that the migrants irrespective of their legal status have access to national vaccination plans. And what does that mean exactly. Are you asking for a special treatment. No not special treatment to follow the criteria they used for nationals being applied to non nationals. Which means recognizing those wanting more vulnerable positions where co mobility's who have because of their age take risks extra risks of being community so it's an equal treatment but in these equal treatment. Everybody's were getting greedy then. Do you feel like governments around. The world are receiving got message. They're understanding the importance of facing their privatization on public. Health principles rather than immigration status principles. I think that other quite a number of countries worldwide presence texas State of texas in the united states or portugal are even countries in latin america like ecuador. Why are accepting the presence and the excess of migrants to not just the testing mechanism. Put also through the vaccination mechanisms. But i still think that there are a number of countries that have not realized that it is the interest of the entire community to have migrants fully integrated in the vaccination plans. So that is worth to back. Many migrants are finding themselves a nine irregular situations and may fear. That could be arrested or deported. If they show up to get vaccinated. What can the government do in order to preempt to that. I think that there is a green simple which is the respect for the fundamental riley for healthcare. And that's why the show. And i supports the claim for universal health coverage and we know that a difficulty there because sometimes migrants especially the ones we ne- regular situation reluctant to have recourse to the national health system. Because they are afraid of being detained or deported. The key issue is to get into the trust and mutual confidence with those migrants and to guarantee them that there will be no law enforcement implications for having access to healthcare and especially to the vaccination process. And those who feel that maybe The vaccine has not been properly shot. There's a lotta vaccine hesitancy going around not just on the curve the vaccine on other vaccines as well. What is your message to migrants displaced persons around the world regarding covid nineteen vaccine. I think that the vaccines always f- some risks. But at the couldn't situation. After current moment i think there is sufficient evidence from the scientific and technical point of view that the vaccines that will be available are safe and they guaranteed the protection of the person's against the virus. So my message is very clear. I think that it is absolutely necessary that each one takes get off feels out house. Eckenroth congress possibly using the mosque washing the ants but at the same time every score recourse to the vaccines that is a tool medical put at their disposal to protect them against these very aggressive. Fire that we are confronted

Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs
"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.
Dozens of migrants die in shipping container on truck in Mozambique

According to the International Organization for Migration Sixty four other men on the truck died from US. Fixation an interview with you and uses. Daniel Johnson. Iom's Sondra Black explains where the migrants came from and what the agencies doing to raise awareness about the dangers of such journeys lever the tragic news yesterday morning that the bodies of sixty four migrants were found in the back of a truck that had come from Malawi. The survivors reported that they were from Ethiopia and that they're on their way to South Africa in search of better opportunities for their own lives. Iowa most is in close contact with the National Migration Service of Mozambique in order to provide immediate assistance for the survivors. Do you know how they found the truck required to pull over at a checkpoint and police spoke with the driver asked him the contents of the vehicle where Austin to open the back of the truck and very sadly those bodies where found but we were glad. At least there's fourteen survivors. Thank goodness there. Were some survivors. It really does sound horrific. Do you have any more details? About where the migrants came from a- they all men are there any women and children. All of the migrants are men. No minors no. When we realized that these men were travelling from Malawi.

That were really really hit by two massive tropical storms Kennedy. What's the situation for migrants? I mean it's tough enough for many in. Mozambique so are they not aware that conditions are absolutely dire for many in Mozambique on their way through to South Africa. Mozambique is along this southern Africa routes where we see migrants coming from eastern Africa traveling down to South Africa but we still in Mozambique have over one hundred thousand people in resettlement sites. The country is still recovering from SCICLUNA die and cyclone. That happened one year ago. We realized that these migrants are looking for educational and Economic Opportunities. Some of them are fleeing violence so they may feel themselves to be in desperate situations. I'm would've you manage to find out from these migrants not necessarily those rescued from the latest. Laurie tragedy. What does it they tell you? What are they looking for? Exactly the situation that some of these migrants are fleeing is fleeing hardship in their countries fleeing poverty. There may be fleeing islands. They may not have the opportunities that they need in order to find employment to support their families so that they feel that migration is an opportunity to improve their circumstance so they choose to leave their homes many in this region we see them travelling to South Africa. So what's the IOM's daily work if you like? What's your objective? Both in preventing people from risking their lives in really dangerous journeys down from the east of Africa to the south. And how do you maybe get some people home repatriate them? That's one of the International Organisation of Migration Semaine functions to isn't it? I O N Mozambique in cooperation with other missions. The South Africa where involved in information-sharing we want migrants to realize the dangers of these irregular migration journeys. We also have a project. In order to voluntarily return migrants to their home countries. We have returned over several hundred migrants. Who WENT TO SOUTH AFRICA? Who did not find the opportunities that they were looking for and wanted to voluntarily return to their home country so just from from Mozambique. We've returned over three hundred migrants Mozambican migrants in the past few years from South Africa and finally in terms of covert nineteen preparedness. What can you tell us about the state of play in? Mozambique the moment many cases of infection there are a few cases of coveted nineteen in Mozambique. This question is best placed for the World Health Organization but all UN agencies are in support of the government of Mozambique the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization to respond to this

Seven women and four children in Geneva spokesperson, Joel millman said that, although the migrant roots were not a secret, it was extremely difficult for rescuers to find the migrants whose trucks often breakdown or who are simply abandoned. We know that probably thousands of victims. There remains aren't even evident anymore because they're covered by sand or consumed by animals. We can only rely on luck I would say mostly in the ability to get resources. Marshalled sometimes local authorities can be very helpful. Sometimes resources are really stretched. So it's a big region. And we do our best with the knowledge we get on any given. Any given month in the latest rescue mission. Mr. millman said that migrants had come from fourteen west African countries mainly Guinea, Mali, and Cote d'ivoire of all of those rescued ninety eight percent opted for voluntary return to their countries of origin.

Thousands of migrants still trapped by intensifying clashes in Tripoli detention centres
"This is Matt wells at US news Faouzi winds of migrants remain trapped by fighting in around Tripoli UN agency IOM has warned more than the month after an assault on the Libyan capital began led by self-styled, Libyan national army commander Khalifa after an interview with Daniel Johnson from your news safm silly from the international organization for migration in Libya explains. How the agency helps those held in eleven official detention facilities. She also gives us an update on last weekend's deadly shipwreck in which dozens of desperate migrants died trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. Well, currently the clashes are escalating in Tripoli, which is extremely worrying for civilians, including migrants. And here I have to note, especially detain migrants and centers there are three thousand three hundred detained migrants in Tripoli. And as clashes intensify the situation is especially dangerous for them. How has access to these detain migrants in the official detention centers in. Outside Tripoli, so the detention centers that are ran by the official authority DCM the directorate for combatant illegal migration now inside Tripoli and around Tripoli as well. There are eleven detention centers functioning has access to those detention centers, and we mainly provide emergency assistance in the form of mon-, food items, health assistance, protection and also voluntary humanitarian support to those wishing to return to their countries of origin. We're not just talking about young men here in the main. We're also talking about women and children in detention centers. We are talking about men minors women children. I can also say pregnant women. So how are you managing to help them materially to migrants in detention centers, we provide health assistance, our teams, go to the detention centers and visit them regularly provide health screenings, and if there any hospital referrals or any further cases that need to be referred to the hospitals. We do that. We also provide nonfood items which is. Blankets mattresses, close hygiene items as well. We also can protection visits to detention centers where we interview the migrant sensitive there any vulnerabilities to be identified. We do advocate for alternatives to the tension. I'm so far we have provided an alternative to detention for over one hundred migrants vulnerable migrants, and that is in the system of host families that we've established in via so yet, although you provided alternative accommodation for someone hundred plus though, still many thousands who need your help. There are still thousands of migrants trapped in Libya weather in urban areas or in detention centers that still need support. And that is what we're working on right now and since the clashes erupted, and you say the getting worse in the last month, presumably the situation of migrants in these detention centers and other displaced people is worsening as well. So what can I do to help them? So our assistant. Can be summarized in emergency assistance. So basically due to the clashes what we do provide is emergency interventions. So we do provide hygiene kits mattresses not food items to displaced people, and we track instances of displacement, and therefore we provide assistance to displaced people. We also provide them with health assistance and hospital referrals, if need be and also the assistance that I mentioned that is provided to migrants weather in detention centers or urban areas. So all the while this fighting is going on the clashes going on the situation is worse than you say, but people are still trying to cross the Mediterranean risking their lives. And yet they're being returned to Libya to detention centers. I o M'S coolers presumably, they should not be happening. So we do consider Libya as an unsafe port and therefore migrants should not be returned to unsafe ports. It is also important to note that migrants are being returned to arbitrary detention some migrants stay in detention centers for over a year. Year or two years.
