Sick children rely on our solidarity
Ensure age-appropriate and interdisciplinary care
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child guarantees this to children Right to an attainable maximum level of health and a best possible medical care (Art. 24, UN CRC). In addition, children have further protection, support and participation rights.
The current developments in the German healthcare system, that is increasingly based on economic principles of increasing efficiency and profitability endanger the respect of these rights and make comprehensive, age-appropriate treatment of sick children difficult.
The initiative Sick children have rights wants to draw attention to this and a wave of solidarity toast with sick children in Germany.
