She counts! Empowering girls to make their choices

This year UNFPA is initiating an exciting campaign #SheCounts, which advocates for the value of women and girls, gender equality and the end of harmful practices. #SheCounts campaign aims to change destructive attitudes and practices which do not value girls and develop the equality in the society. The strength of the campaign is also in supporting the annual report of the State of World Population (SWOP 2020) that has been launched.

Serbia is also a part of this global initiative, particularly UNFPA Serbia as well as NGO Atina.


Atina as a part of the third OSCE simulation-based training on combating human trafficking

The third OSCE simulation-based training on combating human trafficking along migration routes was conducted at the Centre of Excellence for Stability Police Units (CoESPU) in Italy. Sixty-six anti-trafficking practitioners, from 30 OSCE participating States and three Partners for Co-operation gained better knowledge of indicators for identifying trafficked persons among mixed groups of migrants.  Participants also practiced how to concretely apply a multi-agency and human rights-based approach in investigating trafficking cases and assisting victims.
