report coverInclusion International welcomes the report The Right of the child to have a family: Alternative Care. Ending institutionalization in the Americas.  The report, developed by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, part of the Organization of American States, confirms that with support to families, children could be raised at home instead of institutions.

In the Americas, institutionalization remains a common practice despite concerns for the conditions under which residential institutions operate.  The report shows the large number of children who are unnecessarily institutionalized and calls for the development of supports to families and individuals to end the practice of institutionalization.
