Human rights

Outcome 3: Information to guide/ track investments and promote accountability on progress, commitments and processes towards improving women’s and children’s health synthesized and disseminated.

In the sphere of human rights, The Partnership works to develop health linkages for accountability to:

  • Contribute to development of tools to strengthen linkages between accountability mechanisms for human rights and health (including as relevant community-based accountability mechanisms);
  • Disseminate tools and evidence for human rights and iERG related advocacy.

Working very closely with United Nations Agencies, the World Health Organization and other PMNCH members, the Partnership has been involved in the development of and follow-up to the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution on Maternal Mortality which was agreed in 2010. PMNCH continues to work in the context of the human rights approach to maternal and child health.

On the right, link to the UNHRC Resolution on Maternal Mortality, other key documents, as well as meetings related to RMNCH and human rights.
