B. Matters brought to the attention of the Economic and Social Council
Half-day discussion on South and Central America and the Caribbean
1. The Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues recommends that Member States implement precautionary measures and recommendations provided by the Inter- American Commission on Human Rights, the Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and the Permanent Forum to prevent irreparable harm to indigenous peoples, their authorities and indigenous organizations. 2. The Permanent Forum recommends that Members States take measures to advance indigenous women’s right to intercultural health through its inclusion in legal frameworks and public policies as well as programmes to guarantee culturally, geographically and financially appropriate health and social services. 3. The Permanent Forum recalls recommendations contained in paragraph 89 of the report on its eighth session (E/2009/43-E/C.19/2009/14) and in paragraph 35 of the report on its ninth session (E/2010/43-E/C.19/2010/15) regarding coca leaf chewing. Traditional coca leaf chewing is consistent with the right of indigenous peoples to maintain their traditional health and cultural practices, as recognized in articles 11, 24 and 31 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. 4. The Permanent Forum reiterates the recommendation, contained in paragraph 17 of the report on its second session (E/2003/43-E/C.19/2003/22), related to the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography.
