Re.:                             HIV/AIDs in Colombia

Submitted to:             General Assembly

Submitted by:            Colombia

Date:                           November 18, 2017

Whereas Article 25, section 1 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family, including food, clothing, housing, and medical care, and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age, or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.”, and

Recognizing the work the United Nations AIDs mission (UNAIDS) has done to stabilize the global HIV/AIDs crisis, and

Alarmed that the number of people who live with HIV in the world number 36.7 million and in Colombia are 120,000, and

Taking into consideration that UNAIDS finds 1.8 million people have been newly infected by HIV in 2016, and

Noting with deep concern that AIDs is associated with high rates of mortality and morbidity in affected persons, and

Observing that worldwide, around 1 million [830,000-1.2 million] people died from AIDs related illnesses in 2016 and 2,800 deaths in Colombia have been reported due to AIDs, and

Keeping in mind that orphans due to AIDs aged 0 to 17 number around 45,000 increasing daily in Colombia, and

Hopeful that in light of Article 25 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION HUMAN RIGHTS conditions in Colombia and throughout the world relating to HIV/AIDs will be resolved through the world of the UNAIDS and this resolution,

Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:

  1. The United Nations will create a program called the Global Restoration Project (GRP) to prevent and resolve the devastating AIDs/HIV epidemic which is a global issue. This program will start immediately, because of the immediate need to save lives of those suffering.
  2. GRP will provide HIV Rapid Diagnostic Tests to the most needy countries affected by AIDs/HIV, most notably Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Malawi, Uganda, Guinea, Kenya, Tanzania, Central African Republic, Cameroon, Gabon, The Bahamas, Rwanda, Nigeria, South Sudan, Estonia, Haiti, and Colombia.
  3. The GRP will work in association with the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and other humanitarian organizations working within Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Malawi, Uganda, Guinea, Kenya, Tanzania, Central African Republic, Cameroon, Gabon, The Bahamas, Rwanda, Nigeria, South Sudan, Estonia, Haiti, and Colombia in order to provide and administer HIV Rapid Diagnostic Tests.
  4. HIV Rapid Diagnostic Tests cost $24 for thirty test kits which will quickly detect HIV.
  5. For every 300 persons affected by AIDs/HIV, one physician educated in AIDs/HIV prevention and rehabilitation will be appointed.
  6. HIV Rapid Diagnostic Tests will be administered by educated physicians. These physicians will be paid $35,000.
  7. To aid approximately 43 million people living with AIDs/HIV the GRP seeks $5 billion.
  8. We request a minimum of $150 million in United Nations dues to be used for physician fees and HIV Rapid Diagnostic Tests in low- and middle-income countries.
  9. We also ask the UN to raise the dues by 10% on the ten nations that pay the highest amount of dues [Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, United States] this will raise approximately $130 million.
  10. To meet the $5 billion needed to heal and rehabilitate those countries most affected by AIDs/HIV, the GRP will encourage severely affected countries to raise taxes on major exports in order to raise the economy allowing countries affected by AIDs/HIV to afford care.
  11. Countries severely affected by AIDs/HIV will be expected to meet the expectations of its population.
  12. Colombia’s major exports are crude petroleum and coal briquettes. Crude petroleum brings $7.87 billion annually, a tax increase by 0.5% will raise $40 million. Coal briquettes exports total $4.4 billion annually, a tax increase by 0.5% will raise $22 million.
  13. 120,000 persons in Colombia live with HIV. To assist these persons through the methods prescribed by the GRP, approx. $15 million needs to be raised. By raising taxes on crude petroleum and coal briquettes by 0.5% each, Colombia will raise $66 million to assist and heal the AIDs/HIV crisis, allowing orphans due to AIDs/HIV deaths and those living with AIDs/HIV to live more comfortably and rehabilitate.
  14. GRP will have a benchmark every 5 years where a country must have made sufficient global progress towards the prevention and treatment of AIDs/HIV.
  15. GRP will enforce a fine of 5% of their union dues if effort has not been observed, or a smaller amount if 5% cannot be reached.
  16. Benchmarks will continue for the next fifty years, where each country will be expected to lower 5% of their population affected by AIDs/HIV.

Submitted to:            General Assembly

Submitted by:            Italy
Date:                           November 18, 2017

Whereas Article 3 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security of person.”, and

Whereas Article 5 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”, and

Whereas Article 12 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to protection of the law against such interference and attacks.”, and

Noticing with deep concern that 8.5 million people of the Italian population live in poverty, 10% of which consist of the 18-34-year-old group, and

Deeply concerned that the overall unemployment rate in Italy is 58.2%, 35.1% of the unemployed being between 15-24 years old, and

Alarmed by businesses in impoverished Southern Italy face economic turmoil as a result of Mafia influence in overall profit, resulting in decreased quality of life for threatened business owners and prolonging the country’s recession through minimal job growth, and

Aware of the Italian Mafia influence in Mexico, Venezuela, Canada, Germany, Colombia, and Spain through money laundering and drug trafficking operations, and

Saddened that those in economic hardship and an increasing amount of youth feel the need to become affiliated with Italian organized crime due to the allure of these institutions’ economic success, and

Recognizing that 774,000 Italians have fled the Mezzogiorno (Italy’s six southern regions, Sicily, and Calabria) since 2001 from economic recession and domestic organized crime terrorism,

Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly: 

  1. By charging the 10 nations that pay the highest amount of dues 1%, funds will go toward the establishment of the International Organized Crime Reduction Reserve (OCRR).
  2. This government-allocated fund will give incentive money to businesses in areas with the highest organized crime rates (Germany, Brazil, South Africa, Venezuela, etc.) who report mafia activity such as drug trade and money laundering. This will prevent businesses from being threatened into collaborating with organized crime groups, who typically take over the businesses entirely. Criminal activity will be investigated and monitored. The business will be able to utilize all funds for their operations, if mafia infiltration is confirmed through investigation.
  3. Countries sharing in the expense of the OCRR will transfer national troops to other member countries to protect and survey areas of high rates of crime. These troops will enforce existing laws working against organized crime, as well as work to protect citizens in crime- affected neighborhoods. A portion of Italian troops will travel to member nation countries to do the same.
  4. In conjunction with the United Nations, school systems of OCRR member nations will institute areas of involvement, utilizing the above funds, such as clubs and after school activities, as well as outlets of in-school counseling in both primary and secondary education. This will get children and teenagers involved and distance them from institutions of organized crime.
  5. These aforementioned extracurricular activities will be nonprofit organizations such as theatre troops, sport clubs, art clubs, home and economic classes, wood working and pottery classes, gym and fitness organizations, etc. Counseling and social work outlets will be placed inside schools, available during school hours, and employed by the OCRR.
  6. By charging the 10 nations that pay the highest amount of dues 1%, approximately$13,001,704 of funds will be put towards the establishment and the work of the international OCRR. Any funds remaining after the establishment and practice of the OCRR over a span of two years will be refunded to the member nations.
  7. This program will commence instantaneously and be renewed every two years if deemed efficient by OCRR officials in conjunction with the UN.
  8. Therefore, if in two years Italy and member nations’ economic status improves by 15%, the OCRR will be renewed for another two years.
  9. In implementing this plan, and in the establishing of the International Organized Crime Reduction Reserve (OCRR), we hope to decrease rates of crime in countries, such as Italy, who have been infiltrated by organized crime’s economic grasp, in addition to increasing the quality of life for the people of these nations.

larmed by the 34,300,000 people suffering globally from HIV in countries such as, but not limited to, Bolivia, Brazil, Columbia, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela, and

Recognizing the vast amount of medicinal plant life present in the Amazon Rainforest which account for 25% of plants involved in modern pharmaceuticals, proving that further research holds enormous potential for cures, and

Realizing the search for a cure to HIV will likely result in finding uses for newly studied plant life that stems beyond HIV, and

Seeking assistance from countries with strong medical research programs, and

Confident in the ability of a united front of researchers from various countries to discover a substantial cure to HIV,

Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:

  1. The UN will recruit a group of researchers and botanists from around the world to work in the Amazon Rainforest stretching across Bolivia, Brazil, Columbia, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela and look into the unknown medicinal properties of the plant life.
  2. The researchers and botanists will work with indigenous peoples for their knowledge on the local plants. Doctors will be able to more easily identify how plants affect the body if they are given a basic knowledge on the current uses of the plants.
  3. The initial testing period will last over the course of three years, in which we will focus mainly on medicinal cures and vaccines for HIV, but research on other diseases is not discouraged.
  4. All data collected on the medicinal properties of the plants will be made available to each country through a UN regulated database for other scientific purposes.
  5. If the research done over the trial period results in a pathway to a cure, the program may be extended if the need still stands.
  6. Any cures found will be distributed first and foremost to all countries involved in the success, and then new programs will be developed to make them readily accessible.
  7. At an estimate of $77,000 per person annually, the total cost to send a team of 30 people for three years would be around $6,930,000. Lab equipment will be provided by the Brazilian government through government operated research facilities; however, if other countries wish to provide equipment as well, they are more than welcome to do so.
    In order to help with the funding of WHMD, a page will be opened on the UN website which will allow the general public to donate to the cause.

Re.:                             Child Slavery in Congo

Submitted to:            General Assembly

Whereas Article 4 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.”, and 

Whereas Article 5 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”, and 

Whereas Article 24 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.”, and

Noting that in Congo, over 3,327,806 kids 5-14 years old are working instead of attending school, and

Aware that the population in Congo has a population of approximately 83,309,913, and

Keeping into consideration that there are plenty of other organizations like UNICEF, Save the Children, etc. that are concerned with this issue, and

Realize that one in four children have been used for child labour or slavery in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC),

Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:

  1. The United Nations would be establishing a separate organization that would carry out further searches for enslaved children and supporting the present border patrol.
  1. Child protection from slavery (CPS) will be a program where it makes it harder for children to become enslaved and provides many protections. CPS will be a 10 year program test trial to see if the percentage of child slavery decreases in the region.
  1. CPS is a program where a group of trained border patrol and with translators experienced in many different languages will be put together in a group; the soldiers and translators salary would be $50,000 USD annually.
  1. The border patrols will check all person coming and leaving the DRC to see if the child’s “parent” has the child’s birth certificate, passport, and most recent annual examine.
  1. After finding illegally trafficked children the UN would offer a doctoral visit and meet with a psychologist to evaluate and help the child heal from the abuse. We also will be covering transportation to take them back to their home. The cost for psychologists would be an yearly $90,000 USD.
  1. CPS will be located in the top 5 countries where child slavery is the highest rate Eritrea, Somalia, Myanmar, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
  1. Over the course of 10 years, $1,400,000 USD will go to the CPS translators, psychologist, and border patrollers who are help prevent these children from getting enslaved and help recover the rescued ones.
  1. Each country in the UN will have to pay a fee yearly to contribute to the CPS program and poor countries can pay what they can and raise the price to richer countries. The overall cost leaning towards this program would be over $14,000,000 U.S to cover for 10 years.

  4. Countries must lend money in increments, only giving the next increment when the milestone is met.
  5. Depending on the project, the first milestone of the project should be met within six months of the implementation of this program.

  7. This system will ensure transparency, stopping the reckless lending of money to Venezuela by other countries and will establish economic and political stability, effective public services, and adequate law enforcement.
  8. This model of a system of accountability can be used in any country that is experiencing government corruption.
