MELBOURNE， June 27 (Xinhua) -- Suicide rates among indigenous people in a remote region of Western Australia are among the highest in the world， a new report has found.
In the Kimberley region of Western Australia (WA)， figures showed that self-harm was 10 times higher compared to the global average， according to a Medical Journal of Australia publication released on Monday.
An audit of the Kimberley Mental Health and Drug Service showed between 2005-2014 there were 125 suicides in the Kimberley area， with 102 of those incidences involving indigenous people.
Located in north WA and covering some 421，000 square kilometers， Kimberley's population is around 40，000 people. According to the 2011 census， there is around 14，000 indigenous people living in Kimberley.
Young indigenous men have made up 71 percent of the 102 suicide victims in the region over the past decade， with 68 percent less than 30 years old and nearly a third (27 percent) aged 20 or younger.
Of those individuals， 70 percent were not known or had never been referred to a mental health service.
The report's co-author and Kimberley Mental Health and Drug Service director， Dr Murray Chapman， has called for a new approach to suicide prevention within the indigenous Australian population.
"Collective trauma and ongoing socio-economic deprivation are drivers of escalating self-harm and suicide rates among indigenous Australians，" Chapman said in the Medical Journal of Australia article.
In 2014， suicide was the fifth leading cause of death of indigenous Australians， according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Australia's Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has promised just over 62 million U.S. dollars to reduce suicide rates by 50 percent over a 10-year period.
Meanwhile， Australia's Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull said his government would commit to funding for 100 Headspace services， a youth mental health organization.
Chapman said despite new initiatives， the suicide date is set to double by the end of the decade.
"The trend， very sadly， is inexorably to get worse and worse，" she said.
"It's going up exponentially. So there's a doubling each decade and our data suggests that we are on track for a further doubling this decade."
The operation was carried out by the Department of Social Development which is under the MGCSP in collaboration with representatives of the International Organization of Migration (IMO), the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Police Service, the South Africa Embassy and the Human Trafficking Secretariat on Dec. 15 Nike Air Max 97 Gold Baratas , 2015.
The trafficked children, between the ages of nine and 16, were deceived into believing that they were going to be trained in South Africa and sent to Europe and America to play football Nike Air Max 97 Ultra Baratas , Victoria Natsu, Acting Executive Secretary of the Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence Secretariat, told the press in Accra.
While in South Africa Nike Air Max 97 Undefeated Baratas , the children were made to play a few matches while the trafficker returned to Ghana under the pretext of recruiting more children but was never seen again.
She said the trafficker was able to convince the parentsguardians and a local chief in western Ghana at a durbar where he was given a parcel of land to set up a football academy.
The South African authorities rescued the trafficked children to a shelter in Pretoria after the expiration of their visas.
"The children have been kept in a shelter home and taken through various rehabilitation processes since their arrival in the country," Natsu said.
The ministry is expected to do follow-up visits to the communities affected to meet with the chiefs, opinion leaders and parents to sensitize and empower them to be able to identify potential traffickers. Enditem

LONDON Nike Air Max 97 Mujer Baratas , Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The British service sector's strong growth in July revealed in figures Tuesday exceeded the expectations of economists, and more importantly those of the central bank the Bank of England (BOE) for the second half of the year.
The services sector Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for July rose to 59.1 from 57.7 in June, beating consensus expectations of 58 and marking an eight-month high (above 50 represents growth).
The strength of the reading not only beat economists' expectations but also the broader expectation of the BOE for a modest slowing in the rate of growth in the second half of 2014 after two quarters of 0.8 percent quarter-on-quarter growth.
The services sector represents just over 75 percent of the economy Nike Air Max 97 Rosa Baratas , and a strong reading indicates continued gross domestic product (GDP) growth at the level of the first half of 2014, perhaps higher.
For BOE policymakers, this will strengthen the case for an earlier start to the "return to normal" path of bank rate rises plotted by bank governor Mark Carney.
Carney has said the "return to normal" will be gradual Nike Air Max 97 Rojas Baratas , and attention at the moment is on when the first rise in over five years from the record low of 0.5 percent will take place.
Economists and markets are split between a November rise and a rise in Spring 2015.
These service sector PMI figures strengthen the case for the former although there are mixed messages in the underlying data.
The BOE’s rate-setting Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meets Wednesday for a Thursday announcement on rates.
The rate will certainly not rise this month, nor will the committee extend the quantitative easing program, but attention will be on whether the MPC is split over its decision Nike Air Max 97 Negras Baratas , according to analysts.
The MPC has been unanimous in keeping the 0.5 percent rate in recent months, bu.
