Fifty-one point five billion dollars: that’s the staggering amount that UN relief chief Martin Griffiths has asked donors for, to help 230 million extremely vulnerable people in nearly 70 countries next year.Although relief needs are growing, Mr. Griffiths is under no illusion that less than half of what he’s requested will be provided.Which is why he’s convinced that the money should come from other sources, including non-earmarked development funding, and even a windfall tax on energy companies, as he explains to UN News’s Daniel Johnson.

Forty years into the battle against AIDS, a new UN report spotlights fundamental inequalities as the key reason why the disease has yet to be eradicated. Just ahead of World AIDS Day, César Núñez of UNAIDS, the UN agency leading the fight against the virus, told UN News that gender inequality is “a key driver” of the epidemic – along with other prevailing inequalities, especially those impacting vulnerable sex workers, prisoners, and intravenous drug users. Mr. Núñez began his conversation with Liz Scaffidi by reflecting on the many years spent struggling to contain the disease worldwide. 
The current review of the world’s primary biological weapons treaty taking place in Geneva needs to “break the deadlock” over a verification mechanism, the top diplomat presiding the talks has told UN News.Even if that thorny issue remains unresolved, there are other proposals on the table that could make it harder to produce lab-made threats in future, Ambassador Leonardo Bencini explains to UN News’s Daniel Johnson.

Although several groundbreaking treatments for diabetes are in the pipeline, some patients still cannot get access to lifesaving insulin, which was discovered over a century ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports. Diabetes is rising across the globe, in part due to population ageing but also obesity and other lifestyle factors.  Currently, more than 420 million people are living with the disease, which impacts blood sugar levels, mainly in low and middle-income countries. In connection with World Diabetes Day marked this week, on 14 November, Andrei Muchnik of UN News’s Russian Language Service spoke to Slim Sluma, head of WHO’s Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) Department.

Slavery's legacy? You would think that slavery was no longer a part of the human present. Slavery is still widely practiced in the world at large. Its "legacy" is its resilience in the bloody present.
