"Tool on (Children's) Right to Health and Businesses: Unpacking the Human Rights Due Diligence Standard", May 2020

…[T]he Tool... provides guidance to help companies better understand what does it entail to work in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Children’s Rights and Business Principles. To go more deeply in this issue… the right of adults and children to health [has been chosen] as a cornerstone of the analysis, as it is a salient human rights issue for most of the companies, especially now in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak…

…[T]his Tool is intended to be used by all companies, regardless where they operate, by the civil society, and if necessary, by governments. Also, the Tool contains two short sections on the national legislation related to the right of adult and children to health as a background information on the topic for international companies.
