dc.description.abstract The Think and Action Tank (TAT) on Children’s Rights to Health was established in 2013 as an international network of child health advocates. The TAT’s mission is, “To develop, implement, evaluate, and disseminate rights and equity-based strategies, models, and tools to advance children’s health and well-being by fulfilling their rights.” Toward this end, the TAT has developed a conceptual and operational framework to support a human and child rights-based approach to health; and a Platform and Action Cycle (PAC) as a strategy and tool to translate the principles of human and child rights-based approaches to health into practice. The PAC consists of three action steps—contextualizing, assessing, and improving. Through a structured process of generating rights and equity-based statements, indicators, and reports, the PAC establishes a mechanism to engage multi-disciplinary professionals and children themselves in efforts to realize the vision of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. en_US
