Convention on the Rights of the Child

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

In 1989, world leaders made a historic commitment to the world’s children by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child – an international agreement on childhood.

It’s become the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history and has helped transform children’s lives around the world.

But still not every child gets to enjoy a full childhood. Still, too many childhoods are cut short.

It is up to our generation to demand that leaders from government, business and communities fulfil their commitments and take action for child rights now, once and for all. They must commit to making sure every child, has every right.

This year the Netherlands were reviewed under the Child Rights Convention (February 11, 2022) and got the following recommendation under 28 (c) Promote breastfeeding and monitor the implementation of the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes and the baby-friendly hospital initiative.
