The purpose of this guidance is to help USAID staff understand, adopt and implement rights-based approaches across a range of sectors. Using practical tips, case studies and program examples, this brief guide explains how to integrate human rights approaches into other sectors, such as health, education, food security, the environment and economic growth. Pact co-created this document with USAID’s Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance under the USAID-funded, Freedom House-led Human Rights Support Mechanism.
