Event Description

Healthcare Rights: The Convention contains two key provisions concerning children’s healthcare. These are: • Article 6, which recognizes the right of the child to life, survival and development, and • Article 24, which deals with health and healthcare. Paragraph (1) provides for the right of the child to the ‘highest attainable standard of health and to facilities for the treatment of illness and the rehabilitation of health’. It requires that states ‘strive to ensure that no child is deprived of his or her right of access to such health care services’. Emerging from these two provisions is the strong emphasis on primary health care, prevention and healthcare information and awareness. Similarly important is the emphasis on the role of the family in supporting the protection of the child’s rights in the healthcare setting. Finally, it is important to note how the Convention connects the child’s rights to health and healthcare to children’s development and to the social determinants of health more generally.
