Gains made in the protection of human rights in Afghanistan "will be sustained" according to the outgoing director of rights issues at the UN mission in the country, UNAMA.

Georgette Gagnon is leaving the country after five years.

She's warning that, despite those gains, security, political and economic challenges continue to pose a threat to human rights.
