A human rights approach to reducing child deaths

More than 6 million children died last year before their fifth birthday. Most of those deaths could have been prevented.
 
Calling this a human rights tragedy, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al Hussein said a human rights-based approach would help lower the number of preventable deaths of children. Zeid spoke during the UN Human Rights Office launch of the technical guidance note on using human rights to address child mortality and morbidity.
 
The note, which was launched during the 27th Human Rights Council session, lists tangible, concrete measures that States can take, using a human rights-based approach to reduce and eliminate preventable deaths of children under five years of age.

Out of many perspectives comes one history

History and memorials are not the spoils of the victor. In a panel discussion held during the 27th Human Rights Council, Human Rights special rapporteurs discussed with guests and Member States the best way to ensure that history teaching and memorialization processes are being used as a way of fostering mutual understanding between communities so as not to repeat past wrongs.
