  Human rights are the symbol of the progress of human civilization.

It is the unremitting pursuit of the Chinese Communists to protect human life, value and dignity and realize the enjoyment of human rights by all.

  Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core has adhered to the people-centered approach, regards respect and protection of human rights as an important task in the governance of the country, and regards the rights to subsistence and development as the primary basic human rights. Implement the national human rights action plan, promote the historic achievement of my country's human rights cause, and write a glorious chapter in human rights protection.

Keep the bottom line of people's livelihood and strengthen basic guarantees

  In the face of the epidemic of the century, the human rights value of "life first" has become more prominent——

  At the beginning of 2020, the Party Central Committee mobilized the whole country to implement an unprecedented scale of life rescue and comprehensive medical treatment... In a few months, the epidemic prevention and control battle has achieved major strategic results.

Since March this year, the highly contagious Omicron variant has spread rapidly. my country has always adhered to the general policy of "dynamic clearing" without hesitation, and will carry out "life first" to the end.

  The whole chain of precise prevention and control from the defense of Wuhan to the fight against Delta and Omicron, as Zhong Nanshan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said, "In the struggle between people and the virus, the highest human rights are human life and healthy life." .

  Survival is the foundation of all human rights, and poverty is the greatest obstacle to the realization of human rights.

  Winding and clean village roads, row upon row of farmhouses, characteristic landscapes everywhere... In early summer, I walked into Duan Village, Sengnian Town, Fenxi County, Shanxi Province. This mountain village in the hinterland of Luliang Mountain presents a different scenery.

  62-year-old Cai Wenming was a poor household in the village. In 2014, with the support of the government, he bought more than 20 sheep through a small poverty alleviation loan, and then gradually got rid of poverty by raising sheep.

"Last year, my family's net income from selling sheep was more than 40,000 yuan. My wife and I planted more than 10 mu of corn, and we could make a net profit of more than 10,000 yuan. Life is getting better every year!" Speaking of his current life, he was full of faces smile.

  Behind the improvement of life and the great changes in the mountains and villages is a vivid portrayal of my country's comprehensive victory in the battle against poverty.

  After 8 years of continuous efforts, China has completed its poverty alleviation goals and tasks as scheduled. Nearly 100 million rural poor people have been lifted out of absolute poverty under the current standard, all 832 poverty-stricken counties have been removed, and all 128,000 poverty-stricken villages have been listed, completing the goal of eliminating absolute poverty. The arduous task has created a miracle on earth that shines in the annals of history.

  The living standards of the poor have been significantly improved, the "two worries and three guarantees" have been fully realized, and conditions such as food and medical care have been significantly improved. The eradication of absolute poverty has not only rewritten the development history of China's human rights cause, but also achieved the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development 10 years ahead of schedule. and make significant contributions to the development of the world human rights cause.

  Peace is the first need of ordinary people after they have solved their food and clothing, and it is an extremely important people's livelihood.
