On 1 June the world marks International Children's Day. We suggest going back in time and recalling the most careless and happy period of a human life.

International Children's Day was first proclaimed in Geneva during the World Conference on Child Welfare and has been celebrated since 1950. The Declaration of the Rights of the Child was passed by the UN General Assembly in 1959. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted in 1989.

It was a fundamental and complex policy document that set forth the main tasks and targets of child protection in the country. It helped to significantly improve the situation of children, helped children to fully exercise their right to education, healthcare, and sanatorium treatment.
