Attached is the final submission to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child proposing palliative care as essential to a child’s right to health. Diederik Lohman of Human Rights watch has also included a call for palliative care for children as part of the HRW submission, so we are hopeful to get something into the General Comment, which will impact on their decisions regarding palliative care in countries as they evaluate their progress towards implementing the Articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
