UN Children's Rights Article of the Week

Monday, December 10, 2018

This week's UNCRC Article of the week is:

Article 6:

You have the right to life.

What does this mean?

Article 6 of the UNCRC recognises that all children and young people have the right to survive and the right to develop. It also says that the government should work to prevent the deaths of children and young people.

Steps the government can take to do this include:

  • investigating and reporting the causes of death among children and young people
  • making sure steps are taken to prevent suicide among young people
  • making sure steps are taken to prevent traffic accidents that happen to young people.

A right to develop

Article 6 also says that children and young people should be able to grow up in conditions that don't impact negatively on their physical and mental wellbeing. It says the government should make sure they can live in these conditions in order that they can develop.
