Mental Health, Human Rights and Standards of Care - Assessment of the Quality of Institutional Care for Adults with Psychosocial and Intellectual Disabilities in the WHO European Region

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


Description

The WHO project on adults with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities living in institutions in the European Region addresses a highly marginalized, vulnerable group whose quality of life, human rights and reinclusion in society are compromised by outdated, often inhumane institutional practices. 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).
