New York: (Agencies: 21/3/2010): "People continue to lose their lives or have their lives blighted by racism in all regions of the world," according to a group of UN experts.

Their clear message: racism is not only yesterday’s problem – but an immense challenge for today.
In a statement marking the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination to be observed Sunday 21 March, the group of human rights experts warns that "Racism is alive and still plagues every society."

The UN experts say "Be it the migrant worker who faces daily discrimination due to his or her status as non-citizen, the individual who cannot find suitable employment because of his or her colour, the member of an ethnic minority who is prevented from getting equal access to education due to his or her minority status, all these people remind us about the continuous suffering caused by racism on the daily lives of millions worldwide."

: More than 60 per cent of people globally who suffer from mental disorders are not receiving treatment, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, urging an increase in resources devoted to mental health care.

"We have a pressing obligation to scale up care and services for mental disorders, especially among the disadvantaged, while stepping up efforts to protect the human rights of those affected," Mr. Ban said in his message for World Mental Health Day, observed each year on 10 October.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), most middle and low-income countries devote less than 1 per cent of their health expenditure to mental health.

The agency defines mental health as a state of well-being in which individuals can cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and is able to contribute to the community.
