Right to an adequate standard of living

Article 25 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights stipulates that everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of themselves and of their family.

The right to an adequate standard of living includes food, clothing, housing, health care and necessary social benefits including the right to security in the event of loss of livelihood in circumstances beyond their control. The right to a reasonable standard of living is detailed in terms of content, but not in terms of scope. Each country is to work to give everyone access to a standard of living that is adequate according to the opportunities and prevailing conditions in the country.
