Universal Declaration on Human Rights


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages.

European Convention on human rights

The Convention is the first legally-binding international text designed to preserve human dignity, rights and freedoms, through a series of principles and prohibitions against the misuse of biological and medical advances. The Convention’s starting point is that the interests of human beings must come before the interests of science or society. It lays down a series of principles and prohibitions concerning bioethics, medical research, consent, rights to private life ecc.

Convention on the rights of the Child

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (commonly abbreviated as the CRC or UNCRC) is a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. The Convention defines a child as any human being under the age of eighteen, unless the age of majority is attained earlier under national legislation.

Report of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health.

Submitted in accordance with Human Rights Council resolution 6/29, examines the relationship between the right to the highest attainable standard of health and the criminalization of three forms of private, adult, consensual sexual behaviour: same-sex conduct and sexual orientation, sex work, and HIV transmission.

European Social Charter

The Charter was established to support the European Convention on Human Rights which is principally for civil and political rights, and to broaden the scope of protected fundamental rights to include social and economic rights. The Charter also guarantees positive rights and freedoms which concern all individuals in their daily existence. The basic rights set out in the Charter are as follows: housing, health, education, labour rights, full employment, reduction of working hours equal pay for equal work, parental leave, social security, social and legal protection from poverty and social exclusion, free movement of persons and non-discrimination, also the rights of migrant workers and that of the persons with disabilities.

Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data

This Convention is the first binding international instrument which protects the individual against abuses which may accompany the collection and processing of personal data and which seeks to regulate at the same time the transfrontier flow of personal data.

In addition to providing guarantees in relation to the collection and processing of personal data, it outlaws the processing of “sensitive” data on a person’s race, politics, health, religion, sexual life, criminal record, etc., in the absence of proper legal safeguards. The Convention also enshrines the individual’s right to know that information is stored on him or her and, if necessary, to have it corrected.

Restriction on the rights laid down in the Convention are only possible when overriding interests (e.g. State security, defence, etc.) are at stake.

The Convention also imposes some restrictions on transborder flows of personal data to States where legal regulation does not provide equivalent protection.

International Covenant on Civil, Political Rights, Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

Is a multilateral treaty adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 16 December 1966, and in force from 3 January 1976. It commits its parties to work toward the granting of economic, social, and cultural rights (ESCR) to the Non-Self-Governing and Trust Territories and individuals, including labour rights and the right to health, the right to education, and the right to an adequate standard of living. As of 2015, the Covenant has 164 parties. A further six countries, including the United States, have signed but not ratified the Covenant.

Dichiarazione IMCPC

La difesa dei diritti dei pazienti ha da sempre giocato un ruolo chiave per l’acquisizione di nuovi diritti in materia di Cannabis. I rappresentanti di questa difesa devono andare oltre pregiudizi e preconcetti culturali su questa piante. Lo status illegale della Cannabis e la completa mancanza di educazione sia dei pazienti che dei professionisti della salute rende questo processo un po’ più difficile. Anche se parliamo lingue differenti e viviamo in strutture sociali e governative diverse, la compassione, la scienza e la salute umana rimangono gli stessi in ogni linguaggio, in ogni paese ed in ogni essere umano.
