Universal Periodic Review

MHF submissions to United Nations Human Rights Council, and the New Zealand Ministry of Justice regarding the 4th Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of New Zealand.

This Review is held every five years and assesses New Zealand’s progress on a broad range of human rights issues. Our submissions focus on Aotearoa New Zealand’s progress on mental health and wellbeing-related human rights issues.

The MHF sincerely thanks the whānau who shared their stories and experiences with us to inform the October 2023 submission to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Our May 2024 submission to the Ministry of Justice is a response to their targeted stakeholder engagement to support the Government’s consideration of the recommendations resulting from the UPR.
