Baghdad, 19 August 2019

Friends and colleagues,
Sixteen years ago today, the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad was devastated by a massive bomb. Twenty-two of our colleagues were killed and more than 150 were wounded. Among those who lost their lives was the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General, Sergio Vieira de Mello.

Baghdad, 19 August 2019 - Today, on the tenth anniversary of World Humanitarian Day, the United Nations honours the contribution of the nearly quarter-million female aid workers who provide humanitarian assistance to people in need. This year, the UN and partners are launching the #WomenHumanitarians global campaign to pay special tribute to women who work to save lives and alleviate human suffering.

As we mark World Humanitarian Day, UNFPA salutes those who respond to crises around the world. This year, we call attention to the courage and commitment of women humanitarians who assist people amidst conflict, disasters and displacement.

From their communities to their capital cities, young people everywhere are demanding their rights, as affirmed 25 years ago at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo. In the decades since, we at UNFPA have accompanied countless young people on the journey from adolescence to adulthood.
