WHO: New group to ‘expand access to health and human rights’ for women, children, and adolescents
“Helping to expand access to health and human rights for women, children, and adolescents everywhere is the goal of the new High-Level Working Group for the Health and Human Rights of Women, Children, and Adolescents. … The group will work for one year to generate high-level political support, at both national and international levels, for the implementation of the human rights-related measures called for under the [Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016-2030)]. This includes guidance on how human rights can be integrated into health programming, and how we can better measure the impact of human rights on health outcomes…” (9/22).
