CEDAW/C/PHI/Q/6, Thirty-sixth session, 7-25 August 2006:

“29. The Committee expresses its concern about the precarious situation of rural and indigenous women, as well as the Muslim women in the autonomous region of Muslim Mindanao, who lack access to adequate health services, education, clean water and sanitation services and credit facilities. The Committee is also concerned about women’s limited access to justice in cases of violence, especially in the conflict zones, and the lack of sanctions against the perpetrators of such violence. The Committee is furthermore concerned that the practice of early marriage is persistent among Muslim women.

30. The Committee calls upon the State party to pay special attention to the needs of rural women, indigenous women and Muslim women living in the autonomous region of Muslim Mindanao, ensuring that they have access to health care, social security, education, clean water and sanitation services, fertile land, income-generation opportunities and participation in decision making processes. The Committee recommends that the State party ensure women’s access to justice through the provision of legal aid and take steps to prosecute the perpetrators of violence against them. […]” CEDAW/C/PHI/Q/6, Thirty-sixth session, 7-25 August 2006, § 19

CEDAW, Concluding Observations on The Philippines, A/52/38/Rev.1, § 278:

“The representative noted that, in spite of the rapid economic recovery, women in the Philippines suffered disproportionately from poverty, thus contributing to the continued feminization of overseas employment.

This had led to the migration of a large number of rural women to urban areas as well as overseas. She reported that that was a major concern of the Government of the Philippines, which had set up, inter alia, monitoring centres, counselling services and specific support programmes, as well as providing welfare assistance.” CEDAW/C/PHI/Q/6, Thirty-sixth session, 7-25 August 2006, § 25 CEDAW, Concluding Observations on The Philippines, A/52/38/Rev.1, § 283 Concluding Observations on the Philippines, Committee on Economic Social and Cultural Rights, E/C.12/1995/7, 7 June 1995, §14 “Philippines, A different childhood: the apprehension and detention of child suspects and offenders” http://web.amnesty.org/library/index/engasa350072003

Also: CRC/C/15/Add.259, 21 September 2005, § 83:

“The Committee reiterates its grave concern at the high number of children living in the streets and their special vulnerability to various forms of violence and abuse, including sexual abuse and exploitation, economic exploitation and substance abuse. The Committee notes the lack of a systematic and comprehensive strategy to address the situation and protect children living in the streets. The Committee emphasizes that unlawful arrest and detention of street children are serious violations of the provisions and principles of the Convention. Notwithstanding the efforts taken by the State party and, in particular, many non-governmental organizations working with and for street children, for example Child. Hope Asia Philippines, the Committee is concerned about street children’s limited access to adequate nutrition, clothing, housing, social and health services and education. Furthermore, the Committee is concerned about health risks faced by street children, including environmental health risks, such as toxic and hazardous wastes and air pollution.” CRC/C/15/Add.259, 21 September 2005, § 90

CRC/C/15/Add.259, 21 September 2005, § 86:

“[…] But the Committee is gravely concerned about trafficked Philippine children both within the country and across borders. The Committee expresses its concern about existing risk factors contributing to trafficking activities, such as persistent poverty, temporary overseas migration, growing sex tourism and weak law enforcement in the State party.” Common Country Assessment of the Philippines, 2004 http://www.undp.org.ph/cca/Section_2_Defining_the_Development_Challenge.pdf E/CN.4/2003/85/Add.4, 1 November 2002, MIGRANT WORKERS, Report of the Special Rapporteur, Ms. Gabriela Rodríguez Pizarro, Mission to Philippines Including cases of summary executions and extrajudicial killings of Mindanao peoples.
