Abstract

To the Editor: The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child holds governments responsible for ensuring children's right to the highest attainable standard of health by providing breastfeeding support, access to nutritious food, appropriate health care and clean drinking water. If universally implemented, these would lower infant morbidity and mortality substantially. However, this guideline is directed only towards the physical needs of children and neglects their psychosocial and mental health.
