You can now get the latest human rights news and stories directly on your phone via the new UN Human Rights app, available for both Apple and Android phones.

The UN Human Rights app provides easy, user-friendly access to human rights information on the go.

“It is an excellent addition to our existing communication tools so that everyone interested in human rights can get the information they want,” said Laurent Sauveur, Chief of the External Outreach Service of the UN Human Rights Office. 

The app is the first of its kind for the UN Human Rights Office. You can search via region, country or theme, or pre-select your countries and themes and see only those on the app. It also includes a quiz for users to test their human rights knowledge.

You can download the free app via Google Play or the iTunes store for Android and Apple devices respectively.

Appropriately, the UN Human Rights app was launched on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day, which celebrates the fundamental principles of press freedom.
