Projekte

Titel: bodyrEVOLution (ADA Nr. ADA-Projekt-Nr. 2397-21/2020)
Status: bewilligt
Beschreibung: Dieses Projekt ist kofinanziert von der Austrian Development Agency (ADA), dem Land Vorarlberg und dem Land Tirol. Geschlechterstereotype Körperbilder sind in Werbung und Medien allgegenwärtig, ihre Präsenz erreicht durch Soziale Medien eine neue Dimension. Nicht nur in Österreich, sondern auch in vielen Ländern des Globalen Südens werden dabei überwiegend eindimensionale Schönheitsideale transportiert, die von sexistischen und rassistischen Stereotypen geprägt sind. Diese Bilder erlegen gerade jungen Menschen – und insbesondere Mädchen* und jungen Frauen* – Normen auf und erzeugen Druck, diesen (Rollen-)Bildern, zum einen durch eine Anpassung oder Optimierung ihres Körpers, zum anderen durch geschlechtsspezifisches Verhalten entsprechen zu müssen. Unter den häufig westlich-kolonial geprägten Schönheitsidealen von weißer Haut, hellen Haaren, schlanken oder/und muskulösen Körpern, leiden viele Menschen weltweit. Folgen und Konsequenzen sind vielfältig, auch in Österreich: exzessive Aktivitäten zur Körperoptimierung (Sport & Fitness, ästhetische Chirurgie), Essstörungen (Anorexie, Bulimie, Orthorexie), Autoaggression, Konsumzwänge, Mobbing und Gewalt, aber auch Rassismen, Sexismen und Bodyismen. Der Bedarf an Unterstützung und Empowerment für ein eigenständiges, unkonventionelles Selbstbild wird bei vielen Jugendlichen – insbesondere Mädchen* und jungen Frauen –zunehmend artikuliert. Aber auch Tätige in der Bildungs- und Jugendarbeit sowie Multiplikator*innen im Gesundheitsbereich fragen verstärkt nach Sensibilisierungsarbeit zu diesen Themen. Das Projekt nimmt diesen Bedarf auf und versucht, erste Antworten zu finden.

Titel: Establishing Good Practices in Pharmaceutical Aid in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Developing Capacities in Detecting Sub-Standard
Status: bewilligt
Beschreibung: ordable and save medicines. WHO estimates that 10% of medicines are not genuine. Falsified medicines are the reason of countless deaths. Substandard medicines with too little active compound contribute to the emerging thread of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). Now, drug counterfeiters clearly profit from the fear of the coronavirus epidemic and endanger previous successes to overcome Malaria. Supply chains for medicines are fragile and have partly collapsed under the COVID-19 pandemic. Most Countries in Sub-Saharan Africa lack enforceable regulations, the necessary laboratories and means to carry out quality control. Therefore, EPN’s establishment of a Minilab- Network that utilizes a suitcase laboratory to test 100 most common medical compounds for counterfeits is an essential tool to fight these fakes. Today, 18 EPN member organization in 12 countries are successfully identifying SF medicines. However, lack of human resource and poor collaboration with government agencies pose a threat for most Minilab partners. The goal of the project is to improve the medicine safety through better detection of SF medicines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Cameroon, the Central African Republic (CAR) and Liberia. By addressing the human resource gap in the Network and the advocacy efforts at government level, the project expects the following results: 1. Enhanced testing of suspected substandard and falsified medicines in the Minilab partner organisations 2. The minilab network is strengthened and broadened. 3. Minilab partners and government agencies, such as the MoH in the 4 countries are working hand in hand to fight substandard and falsified medicines. Background: • Up to 40% of the health-systems in Sub-Sahara Africa are comprised of Christian Health institutions, especially in rural areas. Achieving a lasting collaboration with the government system will greatly contribute to the entire health service delivery. • The final beneficiaries of the action are the care seeking patients and the partner organisations’ 700 health institutions which are serving approximately 3.5 Mio patients a year. • The proposed action draws on the longstanding cooperation of EPN and plan:g (that lead to the secondment of Dr. Susanne Duff-MacKay, a pharmacist, to EPN, who works in the country despite the pandemic). • The project relates to plan:g’s work in development education shedding light on unwanted negative side-effect of sub-standard pharmaceutical aid. • The project is sustainable as it contributes to ensuring pharmaceutical quality in times of acute crisis, and strategizing for alignment with governmental work.

Titel: Sexuelle Diversität und katholische Kirche - Dialog fördern, Verfolgung und Stigmatisierung beenden.
Status: bewilligt
Beschreibung: The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (art. 2 (2)) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (art. 2 (1)) identify the following non-exhaustive grounds of discrimination: race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, disability, birth or other status. According to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, “other status” may include health status (e.g., HIV/AIDS) or sexual orientation. In many countries, LGBTIQ* are exposed to arbitrary harassment by the police, to brutal humiliation by violent mobs, to unfounded dismissal by their employers, and to exclusion from school by their head teachers. Criminalisation deprives LGBTIQ*s of the protection of their fundamental human rights. The Catholic church plays a crucial role in the criminalisation of LGBTIQ*. Over the decades, new questions have been raised: In a globalised world, where does injustice block access to salvation and cure? Where does the church participate in cementing unjust structures instead of overcoming them? How can faith help to create justice? The Catholic church has to overcome homophobia and speak out against oppressing minorities. Objective: To use the huge potential of the church to advance gender justice and oppose misanthropic resentments, and to reject the exploitation of religious motives for discriminating against LGBTIQ*. Result 1: Reflection by the Austrian church on how best to act as a credible advocate for the rights of all people, especially of discriminated minorities, including LGBTIQ*. Result 2: Increase in awareness among observant Austrian Catholics of the need to change Canon Law CCC no. 2354. Result 3: Presentation of the “Grant me Justice – Criminalization of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People and the Catholic Church” exhibition in up 20 Austrian parishes. Result 4: Increase in awareness for the discrimination of LGBTIQ* through information campaigns such as panel discussions, leaflets, postcards, etc.

Titel: Institutional Support and LGBTIQ* Needs Assessment
Beschreibung: Northern Kenya is one of the poorest and most marginalized regions in the country also due to the refugee movements (Somalia, internal conflicts). Minorities in Northern Kenya have little to no access to the health system. The exclusion of minorities weakens the whole health system. The development of a strong health is a democratic task that requires the participation of everyone. Only if everyone has equal access, we can talk about strong health systems. Therefore, states have an obligation to prohibit and eliminate discrimination on all grounds and ensure equality to all in relation to access to health care and the underlying determinants of health. Through the exhibition "Grant me justice – Criminalization of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People and the Catholic Church" drawn up at the 2nd assembly of the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics (2017), there has been an intensive contact with representatives of human rights activists from the region. Anti-LGTBI* incidents are part of very specific local and distinct political settings. Gender, class, environmental and power issues concern the political abuse of all forms of differences and belongings. Objective: Empowerment of Human Rights Defenders in Northern Kenya to Act as Change Agents. Result 1: A needs assessment of LGBTIQ* in Northern Kenya is conducted. Result 2: The preparatory work for the implementation of a virtual office that is secure and stable was carried out. Result 3: Capacities to apply for and implement co-financed projects that further enhance sustainable change are improved.

Titel: Human Corporate - Betriebliches Gesundheitsmanagement in der Einen Welt
Status: Pausiert (bewilligt)
Beschreibung: Healthy working and environmental conditions are part of the right to health. Businesses can affect the right to health in several ways. The corporate culture, the food offered in the canteen, the working equipment, etc. can directly affect the health of employees. The mode of production, procurement of office materials and equipment, etc. have a huge impact on the environment. Therefore, occupational health management is important in the Global North and in the Global South; it is an entry point for behavioural change and addressing the need for socio-ecological transformation. Improving individual health is not merely a private matter. Health promotion and prevention require both individual and collective changes in consciousness and behaviour. Objective: To further develop corporate health efforts in Austria and in partnering countries in order to promote healthy working and environmental conditions. Result 1: Advancement in occupational health and promotion of the idea of “One Health in One World” in up to 10 Austrian businesses. Result 2: Social awareness and a broad understanding of the relevance of plan:g’s work in up to 10 Austrian businesses and up to 100 new employee donors. Result 3: Identification of organisations, ministries and companies interested in advancing the health status of employees in our partner countries. Result 4: Contracting of up to 4 technical advisors for a 2-year term to consult with organisations, ministries and companies in our partner countries on occupational health issues.
