by Admin EASPD - Thursday, 9 May 2019, 3:10 PM
 


Description

The goal of the initiative is to promote and facilitate deinstitutionalization. A first step is better understanding of the scale and quality of long-term care arrangements in the WHO European Region. The specific objectives were to address gaps in knowledge about the number and characteristics of long-term institutions and to identify deficiencies in current care standards from the perspective of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
