Defender It is a term that can be used as adjective or as noun . In the first case, the word allows to qualify the person which is responsible for protect, care or keep something : that is, it exercises its defending .

For example: “I have always been a man who defends freedom of expression”, “We need an architect that defends historical heritage to help us in this fight”, “Martín considers himself a young defender of the environment but never recycled anything”.

As a noun, a defender can be a player from soccer It occupies a position close to its own goal or goal and whose main function is to prevent rival players from scoring. This does not prevent, of course, that the defender also fulfills tasks in attack and that he can score his own goals: “The Portuguese defender was expelled after assaulting the Italian captain”, "Roberto Carlos was a Brazilian defender who stood out for his offensive ability", "The defender rejected the ball when he was on the line and avoided the fall of his team".

In the field of right , the defender (or defense attorney ) is responsible for protecting the interests of one of the parties: "The defender will try to prove that the defendant does not know Frías", “I recommend that you look for a good defender, because the complaint is very serious”.

There are several positions that also resort to the use of the term we are analyzing. Thus, for example, there is what is known as Ombudsman for Children. We can find this position in different cities or regions of the world, such as Madrid, and its clear mission is to protect the interests and rights of minors at all times.

In the same way, we must highlight the existence of what is known as the Patient Advocate. As the name implies, always ensure the welfare and rights of the person who has gone to a medical center and has been treated in it. In this way, for example, the aforementioned position can study and investigate the complaints that the latter may have presented for issues such as the delay of an ambulance, the error in a diagnosis, complications, lack of medical equipment or injuries.

Of course, there are other similar positions in various corners of the world such as the consumer defender or the defender of the major.

Ombudsman or Ombudsman finally it is a public office Who has to ensure that citizens do not suffer injustices or arbitrariness by political authorities: “I will go to the Ombudsman to report this abuse”.

It is also interesting to establish that there is a television program in Spain called "Save Me" that has what the Spectator Ombudsman has called. This is a position that has been given to a consolidated professional of the media, María Teresa Campos, and what she does is listen and attend to both criticism and flattery towards the members of the space. In this way, it is intended that collaborators and presenters improve their interventions.
