Iran Iran – The unilateral coercive measures taken to control Iran’s movement is having an adverse impact on the lives of the people, a report by the UN has stated. Alena Douhan, the Special Rapporteur on the negative impact of the unilateral coercive measures (UCMs) has said that America needs to take onus towards this.

Apart from economic hardships, those suffering with disabilities or rare diseases are finding it difficult to make ends meet. Sanctions have been imposed on third party associations as well.

Speaking about the implications, Ms. Douhan shared how sanctions imposed on Iran’s key economic sectors has had a ripple effect on the lives of Iranians.  Even financial institutions along with numerous national companies being designated has affected many. For starters, it has led to severe drop of state revenues, inflation, growing poverty rates, and scarcity of resources to guarantee the basic needs of those most in need.
