EFFECTIVE FUNCTIONING OF HUMAN RIGHTS MECHANISMS : NATIONAL INSTITUTIONS FOR THE PROMOTION AND PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS : INFORMATION / SUBMITTED BY THE IBERO-AMERICAN OMBUDSMAN FEDERATION ; NOTE BY THE SECRETARIAT
8 April 2004
DECLARATION BY THE IBERO-AMERICAN
NETWORK OF WOMEN’S ADVOCATES TO THE
EIGHTH ANNUAL CONGRESS OF THE IBERO-
AMERICAN OMBUDSMAN FEDERATION (FIO)
Panama, 19 November 2003
The Ibero-American Network of Women’s Advocates, meeting in Panama in conjunction
with the eighth Annual Congress and Assembly of the Ibero-American Ombudsman Federation
(FIO) over the period 17-21 November 2003,
Recalling that at the regular annual meeting of the FIO Congress held in Toledo in 1997 it
was decided, by the ombudsmen there present, to establish an Ibero-American Network of
Women’s Advocates committed to guaranteeing a high-level special-purpose body within the
institutional structure of ombudsmen’s offices to defend and promote the human rights of women
in the region, an undertaking which is making progress in some countries but not elsewhere,
Bearing in mind that the difficult human rights situation of Ibero-American women due to
discrimination and systematic violence, especially in the exercise of their rights to health,
education, political participation, and justice, besides the widespread violence they encounter in
the home and in their sexual integrity and freedom, the violence used on migrant and displaced
women, sexually exploited women and female victims of social and political violence, and killings
of women, among other serious problems, requires an immediate review of management strategies
on the part of the ombudsmen’s offices belonging to FIO,
Considering that, according to the latest report of the United Nations Population Fund,
45 per cent of the inhabitants of Latin America live below the poverty line and this has an effect on
the steady increase in the incidence of HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy and maternal mortality,
among others, which most strongly affect girls and young, teenage and adult women,
Convinced that the exercise by the region’s women, including teenagers and girls, of their
human rights requires determined encouragement and strengthening of ombudsman mechanisms at
all institutional levels, notably that of women’s advocates, in order to urge and incite States and
national and local Governments to introduce public policies guaranteeing that basic needs will be
met through the promotion and protection of economic, social and cultural rights,
FIRST. To invite the FIO Annual Congress to reaffirm the commitment, made in the Toledo
Declaration and confirmed at all congresses since, to establish and put into operation a high-level
special-purpose body to defend, promote and publicize women’s human rights as part of the
structure of every one of the ombudsman institutions belonging to the Federation;
SECOND. (...) To convey to the FIO Annual Congress the need to encourage sex education policies and
programmes at educational institutions and targeted at the general public; to guarantee unimpeded
access by teenagers and young people, male and female, to appropriate information and the best
possible reproductive health services as a contribution to the millennium goals for comprehensive
human development, as countries that have signed the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms
of Discrimination against Women and the Inter-American Convention on the Prevention,
Punishment and Eradication of Violence against Women and the declarations of the Cairo and
Beijing Conferences specially convened to promote the inalienable, indivisible and integral human
rights of women and girls;
