Plan "Care for the Children and Young Persons"

BAoP vzw

Professionals from various child-related sectors support the core principle to safeguard the children’s rights and maximize efforts to ensure children receive opportunities to reach their full potential. Recognizing children’s complete exclusion from policy-making, the Belgian Academy of Paediatrics (BAOP) -in collaboration with other professionals, paediatric patients and patient representatives- took the initiative to develop this ‘Care for the Child’-plan. It offers a comprehensive framework to realize the aforementioned principle, leaving no child behind. We start with the 10 recommendations for policy makers, endorsed by a large number of health professionals within child health care.
