About Us

 

Founded in 2012, we are 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.

The Children’s Health and Human Rights Partnership (CHHRP) works to uphold the administration and enforcement of current human rights laws and treaties. Our efforts encourage, support, and defend human rights that have already been secured by the current Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and existing international human rights laws and treaties.

 

MissionTo provide professional education to the general public and health care providers  — respectfully promoting meaningful learning about children’s health and human rights. 

 

Vision: A strong national level of public and professional awareness regarding the established Charter right of all children to be protected from non-therapeutic forced genital cutting. 

 

Values: Professionalism, Respect, Education, Service
