On Human Rights Day, December 10th, we celebrate the date that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proclaiming it the "common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations." Ortho supports policies and practices that promote and protect human rights around the world, through its awards program, conferences and symposia, task forces, and publications. Our work highlights the importance of meaningful participation in community life as a cornerstone of human rights-- for example, we emphasize the relationships and social systems that promote positive development and mental health. This emphasis has also motivated our historic focus on vulnerable populations, especially children and adolescents, who may require extra protection in order to access their rights.
