Advancing gender equality in environmental migration and disaster displacement in the Caribbean
Thematic Area: Migration and environment
Year: 2021
Language: English

Disaster displacement and environmental migration are among the most serious humanitarian challenges facing the Caribbean. As a subregion of small island developing States (SIDS) which are vulnerable and prone to extreme weather events and the impacts of climate change, the Caribbean is constantly faced with population displacement resulting from these events. Individuals experience these migration processes uniquely on account of their gender specific inequalities, vulnerabilities, and access to resources and opportunities. It is critical to understand how the consequences of environmental migration and disaster displacement are gendered in order to address and prevent harm and to protect the rights of women and girls and people of all genders who experience intersecting forms of discrimination.

Protocole de detection, referencement, surveillance et suivi des cas de COVID-19 sur la frontiere terrestre entre Haiti et la Republique Dominicaine
Thematic Area: Gestión de fronteras, Migración y Salud
Year: 2020
Language: Francés

Malgré la fermeture de la frontière terrestre entre Haiti et la République Dominicaine le 16 mars 2020, de nombreux mouvements sont enregistrés par le réseau de surveillance frontalière mis en place par l’Organisation Internationale pour les Migrations (OIM). Certains migrants présentent déjà des symptômes d’insuffisance respiratoire aigüe, de grippe ou de COVID-19, comme la fièvre et de la toux. Dans ce contexte, il apparait crucial et urgent de mettre en place un protocole de contrôle de ces mouvements migratoires à la frontière, principalement pour les retours de migrants haïtiens en provenance de la République voisine. 

Le protocole repose sur les 4 axes principaux du protocole de l’OMS à savoir : 1. Détection des voyageurs symptomatiques (fièvre, toux, etc); 2. Consultation des voyageurs symptomatiques afin de déterminer s’ils sont atteints du COVID-19; 3. Notification des alertes de voyageurs malades chez lesquels une infection par le COVID-19 est suspectée; 4. Isolement, prise en charge initiale et orientation-recours des voyageurs malades chez lesquels une infection par le COVID-19 est présumée.
