Child friendly healthcare - A manual for health workers

By Sue Nicholson and Andrew Clarke
Edited by Sue Burr and David Southall
Abridged by Alice and Oliver Ross

This is an assessment and implementation manual about ‘Child Friendly Healthcare’ (CFH) written for health workers who plan, organise, provide or give care to children and their families. The manual defines CFH by translating the articles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into simple CFH‘Standards’ that are applicable to everyday healthcare practices. It provides a method and process for assessing these and a simple structure for making any wanted or needed improvements so that children and their families everywhere can receive the ‘best possible’ healthcare, regardless of circumstance.
