As Gambians prepare to vote for their next President, I call on all protagonists to ensure a peaceful environment conducive to a credible, inclusive & transparent election.

Amid #COVID19, rates of domestic violence have dramatically escalated. In the case of women with disabilities, their vulnerability to gender-based violence is even greater. I urge governments to put women’s safety first as they respond to the pandemic.

With a virus that is truly borderless, travel restrictions that isolate any one country or region are unfair, punitive and ineffective. I appeal to all governments to consider instead repeated testing for travelers, together with other appropriate & truly effective measures.

Realizing the rights and leadership of persons with disabilities is a matter of justice. I'm grateful for the work of SDG Advocate @eddiendopu who is helping the @UN build a sustainable, inclusive, and just future for everyone.

#COVID19 has laid bare the persistent barriers and inequalities faced by the world’s 1 billion persons with disabilities. A disability-inclusive pandemic response & recovery must be guided by people with disabilities themselves, to create a more accessible post-pandemic world.

Virtual violence is violence. Online abuse is abuse. Women and girls have the right to feel safe in all spaces. More from @UNFPA: #16Days

Yesterday, the last remaining members of the Renamo Military Junta were demobilized in Mozambique. This is a significant development toward consolidating definitive peace. I commend the Government of Mozambique & Renamo’s use of dialogue to advance peace & reconciliation.

The racist legacy of slavery reverberates to this day. And while some may believe slavery to be a thing of the past, this evil continues to blight our modern world. Let us join forces to end the degradation and inhumanity of modern slavery once and for all.

Some of the 40+ million victims of slavery today are forced to produce the clothes we wear, the food we eat, or construct the buildings we live and work in. I call on countries, civil society and the private sector to strengthen collective action to end slavery.

This year, humanitarians delivered lifesaving food, medicines and other essentials to 107 million people. But needs continue to outpace funding. We must rally to support children, women and men who have nowhere to turn.

We must never forget the suffering of millions of African men, women & children under the transatlantic slave trade. As we mark Abolition of Slavery Day, I honour the resilience of those who endured & pay tribute to those who sacrificed their lives in the quest for freedom.

Violence against women & girls is an abhorrent crime & a public health emergency that has been worsening amid #COVID19. As we mark #16Days of Action against gender-based Violence, I reiterate my appeal to end this shadow pandemic once & for all.

Access to affordable health care saves lives. To beat AIDS – and build resilience against the pandemics of tomorrow – we need collective action. Governments must ensure everyone has access to the health services they need regardless of their economic status. #WorldAIDSDay

1 in 5 refugee or internally displaced women have faced sexual violence. We must ensure that forcibly displaced women and girls are protected & empowered. Survivors must be supported to heal & recover and perpetrators must be brought to justice. #16Days

In these times of crisis, the founding principles of the Group of 77 and China - unity, complementarity, cooperation and solidarity - are especially relevant. I am fully committed to working closely with them & all Member Countries to shape a better world for future generations.

I congratulate Barbados on becoming the first country in the Caribbean with a female President & female Prime Minister, after today's transition to a Republic. Women leaders have led inclusive responses to the #COVID19 & climate crises. Their leadership is needed more than ever.

It is only through strong political will and unrelenting effort that the vision of a zone free of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East can turn into a reality. This is in the interest of everyone in the region - and beyond.

The use of chemical weapons anywhere, by anyone, under any circumstances, is intolerable - and a serious violation of international law. The only appropriate tribute to victims is to rid the world of chemical weapons once and for all.
