The UN Child Rights Week is celebrated this year with the theme of the child’s right to well-being. The week coincides nicely with the 5th birthday of the New Children’s Hospital. We invite you, as a friend and supporter of ULS, to the celebration seminar to discuss what children’s right to good care means in a situation where health care for the smallest threatens to be left at the feet of the social security reform. What should be done in the next five years so that the New Children’s Hospital can keep its promise to offer world-class medical care to Finnish children?
