COVID-19, NHRIs and Human Rights – OHCHR Guide

25 April 2020

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet has published an aide-memoire on COVID-19,  NHRIs and Human Rights.

OHCHR fully acknowledges the valuable and important work that has already been undertaken by NHRIs globally to respond to the pandemic and offers this guidance to complement those efforts, and to share good practices.

The document aims to facilitate the integration of human rights in preparedness and response to COVID-19 by identifying key issues.  It is a dynamic document and NHRIs may modify it according to their situation and experiences.
