Guidelines on child-friendly health care - Council of Europe

Adopted by the Committee of Ministers on 21 September 2011

The guidelines on child-friendly health care propose an integrated approach to the development of the full range of child health care activities. This approach places children’s rights, needs and resources at the centre of health care activities, taking into account their family and social environment. It promotes policies to deliver child-oriented services based on child-specific developmental needs and evolving capacities, ensuring children’s participation at every level of decision making, in accordance with their age and degree of maturity.
