The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has been present in Guinea-Bissau since 1999 when UNOGBIS was established. The Senior Human Rights Adviser was deployed in August 2021 following the exit of the UN mission in December 2020. The SHRA’s mandate focuses on strengthening the capacity of the United Nations Country Team in Guinea-Bissau to integrate human rights in their programs and policies and on assisting national actors to comply with human rights obligations under international law.
