Committee will monitor the fight against the pandemic among isolated indigenous people | Brasilia Web

Presidential decree published in the Official Gazette of today (11) creates, within the scope of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, the Management Committee of Plans to Combat Covid-19 for Indigenous Peoples. The group will be responsible for the governance and monitoring of actions to combat the pandemic aimed both at isolated indigenous peoples and those with recent contact.

The committee will have, among its members, representatives of bodies such as the Institutional Security Office and the Civil House, both of which are directly linked to the Presidency of the Republic, the Federal Attorney General’s Office, the Federal Comptroller General’s Office and the National Indian Foundation (Funai). .

It will also be made up of representatives from the Ministries of Citizenship, Defense, Economy, Environment, Mines and Energy and Health, in addition to a representative of the Ministry of Women, Family and Human Rights. The committee will meet monthly, on an ordinary basis, and, whenever called, on an extraordinary basis.

The group will be responsible for providing for the execution and adoption of plans and measures for the protection and promotion of isolated or recently contacted indigenous groups in the health area. The committee will also be responsible for proposing the preparation of new plans and the review of those already in place, as well as monitoring the fulfillment of actions, through the evaluation of information and reports presented by the Operations Coordination Center of the Management Committee. This center will coordinate the execution of the operational and logistical activities of the confrontation plans.

Demands made by other bodies and entities that are not part of the committee must be managed by the group, which will have to prepare “periodic reports”, presented by Organs member bodies, related to the execution, monitoring and evaluation of planned actions.

The decree signed by President Jair Bolsonaro also assigns to the new committee the definition of criteria for the treatment of alerts of predatory activities in indigenous lands, as well as guidelines and forecasts of logistical, human, budgetary and financial resources to fulfill the plans to face the Covid-19.

The document, which will be in force until December 31, 2022, also details the competencies of the Operations Coordination Center.
