Tiempo límite / Día del Evento:
UNHCR’s mandate is to lead and coordinate worldwide action for the international protection of refugees and other persons of concern. This encompasses the provision of medical and nutritional services and the protection of persons of concern from sexual and gender based violence (SGBV). In 2006, the High Commissioner made it a priority for UNHCR to improve its performance in the areas of health provision, nutrition and in preventing and responding to SGBV. UNHCR’s services in these key areas were consequently strengthened by the establishment of the High Commissioner’s Special Projects.
