While much work has focused on advocacy and prevention efforts in countries of high prevalence in Africa and diaspora in Europe, there has been a paucity of discussion on FGM in the Asia‐Pacific region. FGM is practised in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, the Philippines and Indonesia; however, none of these countries are supported by the UNFPA‐UNICEF Joint Programme on the Abandonment of FGM. Australia and New Zealand are also home to migrant women and girls with FGM.
The Building Healthy Cities project aims to contribute towards better health care delivery for city citizens by embedding health equity lens into city policies, planning, and services while improving data flow for existing Smart Cities in India, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
The funding received significantly contributed to four programmes implemented in Yogyakarta: the Medical Programme, the Emergency Shelter Programme, the Transitional Shelter Programme and the Logistics Programme. IOM was able to immediately deploy a team of experienced professionals to implement a wide range of emergency response and recovery activities.
The proposed project aims to: 1) permit a systematic assessment of the satellite health clinics (Puskeslit, SHC) program, 2) support a childbirth emergencies continuing medical education program based in Nagan Raya and Aceh Barat with a focus on bidan (midwife) training to manage post partum hemorrhage and birth asphyxia in home or SHC birthing locations, and 3) strengthen the capacity of health care staff in the abovementioned districts, in additional sectors.
IOM will provide to earthquake affected populations: Emergency shelter related NFIs, Transitional shelter (materials, tool kits, technical assistance), Medical services (assisted medical return, post op care, mental heath training). The project's overall objective is to support the national and international community's response to the earthquake in Yogyakarta, by providing medical and logistics support to the affected population and to national and international aid agencies active in the area.
Based on IOM's extensive experience acquired during the emergency relief operations in Aceh, Nias and Yogyakarta, IOM proposes to provide immediate relief assistance in the form of non-food items and assist with the logistics and distribution of aid to affected areas, in close cooperation with the National Disaster Managing Board Secretariat and other aid agencies. In response to the flooding in Greater Jakarta IOM has been requested by BAKORNAS to procure and distribute rubber boats.
The overall objective of the Imigrasi Information Technology Training Support (IITTSP) project (the "Project") is to enhance the Government of Indonesia's capacity to maximize the benefits of its recently developed migration management and border control systems through a range of training and development initiatives which will enable the Directorate General of Immigration to become more self-sufficient in the ongoing management of those systems.
