A combination of advocacy on human rights issues of concern and technical support and capacity building with key partners has formed the basis of the Regional Office's work, including with national government authorities, national human rights institutions, civil society and UN agencies and programmes. Covering nine (9) countries, specifically Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela, OHCHR Regional Office for South America coordinates its activities and actions with Headquarters and other field presences.
