The safety of journalists is deteriorating across the globe.In this, special attention and resources must go to women journalists and media workers. It is unacceptable that human rights continue to be violated today and still meet with impunity. It is unacceptable that journalists and media workers are being kidnapped, tortured and killed and that perpetrators are not held accountable. Over the last 10 years, 845 journalists and media workers have been killed across the world. This means that one journalist or media worker has been killed on the job every four days over the last decade. It means ensuring quality journalist education and supporting media organizations, including measures that protect individual and freelance journalists. To support national action, UNESCO is spearheading the United Nations Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity.
