USAID stands at the forefront of the fight for full and equal rights for LGBTI people in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
September 18, 2015

Some say that, next to all the other social and economic challenges in Bosnia and Herzegovina, LGBTI rights are not a priority. USAID says human rights are always a priority. USAID stands at the forefront of the fight for full and equal rights for LGBTI people in BiH to ensure that the country’s LGBTI citizens and advocates do not stand alone.

As a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is obliged to improve the quality of life of children and other persons with disabilities. But the state does little to fulfill its duty and responsibility to this group of citizens. As a result there is a lack of institutional support services for families of children with physical or developmental disabilities. Having to care for a child or other person with a disability precludes their ability to have a job outside the home, go to school, or have any kind of social or personal life. These caretakers – usually the mothers – become psychologically and physically exhausted, with no end or even temporary relief in sight.
