PRESS RELEASE: Statement from the United Nations in Thailand on the 2015 International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT)

In 2011, Thailand voted for a UN Resolution on combating all forms of discrimination and violence against individuals because of their sexual orientation and gender identity. Recent policy developments, such as the Gender Equality Bill and the 2012 Social Welfare Act, have also given broader attention in Thailand to equality and sexual diversity, particularly for transgender people. These positive developments recognise and affirm that LGBTI persons in Thailand can fully participate in all aspects of public life, and are entitled to claim their human rights, which is especially important for young people.

World Health Day 2015 on Food Safety - Empower children as tomorrow's consumers

All children start to handle food at certain points in their lives, whether eating food prepared by others, or preparing it for themselves. They need to learn about the risks associated with unsafe practices to prevent foodborne diseases and to become informed consumers who are able to make safe choices. Then once these children become adults, they can transmit their knowledge and good practices to the next generation. But how often do we teach them that food can be risky, and that it needs to be selected and handled with care to avoid serious diseases? Explaining the importance of food safety to children, how to ensure it at home, school and elsewhere, is essential to building a healthier future, and central to the 2015 World Health Day campaign.
