Puntos claves: Gateway Health Institute is a 2015 Winner of the Grand Challenges Explorations, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.Achievements 2015 saw 4 major achievements, not that the others don't carry weight. The year started with the award of a Grand Challenges Explorations Phase 1 grant under the Round 14 topic "New Ways to Reduce Pneumonia Fatalities Through Timely, Effective Treatment of Children" that was followed with a win of the People's Choice Award for "Most Promising Childhood Pneumonia Innovation", presented by the United Nations MDG Health Envoy, at the Pneumonia Innovations Summit in New York City. Thirdly, to be invited to be part of the group of "visionaries" originating from Africa, to join the African Grand Challenges community initiated by the African Academy of Sciences and NEPAD is a great honour not only for myself, but also for Gateway as an organisation. The final feather in our cap for 2015 was to be included in the Local Organizing Committee of the World Breastfeeding Conference to be held in Johannesburg in December 2016.Cause for 2016In 2015 GHI founded the South African Chapter of the African Human Rights Coalition which puts us in a position to truly live up to our motto:Your Health. Your Rights. Too many cases of rape, gender based violence and sexual abuse go unreported in our country due to fear of the police, nurses and the judiciary. We should fight this trend of secondary victimization tooth and nail and hold our public servants accountable for their actions and failures. We feel strongly that perpetrators of hate crimes like corrective rape should not be allowed to walk free because of the lack of knowledge and or due to attitudes of those who are supposed to support the victims, but fail to do so. As we celebrate World Human Rights Month we pledge to continue to focusing on secondary victimization during 2016 and beyond
