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. We are also concerned citizens committed to inter-professional and public education towards ending non-therapeutic genital surgery on children in Canada. CHHRP’s work is 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. We encourage examination on how non-therapeutic genital cutting of children violates medical ethics, current international human rights treaties and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Values: Professionalism, Respect, Education, Service

 

Current News: Males of any age, who were circumcised in Canada, are invited to share their experiences regarding psychological harm or harm to their sexual health that may have resulted from circumcision. The results of this survey will assist the Children’s Health & Human Rights Partnership in better understanding the possible consequences of circumcision on male health and sexuality.

 
The survey is open until April 30, 2017.

 
Please share this information widely and encourage males of all ages, who were circumcised in Canada, to participate.
