OAS Member States,

The Coalition for Human Rights in the Americas , and the members of other regional and global networks from civil society, express our deep concern over the severe financial crisis currently affecting the InterAmerican Commission of Human Rights (IACHR). We endorse this statement in order to appeal all Member States of the Organization of American States (OAS) to take the necessary actions to guarantee the immediate and proper funding of the IACHR in order to fulfill its mandate. In addition, we urgently call for the creation of a sustainable fund to finance the Organs of the InterAmerican Human Rights System (IHRS), in order to address the precarious situation, which both the Commission and InterAmerican Court of Human Rights have been going through since in the last few years.
