About Us

Founded in 2012, the Children’s Health and Human Rights Partnership (CHHRP) is a partnership of professionals in the fields of medicine, ethics and law, as well as concerned citizens, committed to interprofessional and public education toward ending non-therapeutic genital surgery on children in Canada, in accordance with international human rights treaties and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

CHHRP educates the public and professionals about the functional benefits of intact human genital anatomy and the harm being documented by those subjected to forced genital cutting; and encourages examination of how non-therapeutic genital cutting of children violates medical ethics, current international human rights treaties, and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

CHHRP’s educational work is primary to its mission, and while CHHRP makes its position publicly known within the limits of political activity as defined by Canada Revenue Agency, CHHRP does not engage in actions to create new law, or to change existing law or governmental policy.
