The Netherlands Helsinki Committee (NHC) has launched a regional “COVID-19 Solidarity Programme 2020-2022: Call for Proposals on COVID-19 in Prisons and Mental Health Institutions” with the financial support of the European Union, and in partnership with People in Need and AFEW International.
The NHC, in cooperation with Human Rights in Mental Health (Federation Global Initiative in Psychiatry, FGIP), will deliver the activities of the Programme. This programme will support civil society organisations (CSOs) to respond to the immediate and longer-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in Eastern Partnership countries.
NHC and FGIP seek to provide grants to CSOs to monitor the effect of COVID-19 prevention and treatment measures on the conditions of people confined to penitentiary institutions, detention and/or pre-detention centres in the Republic of Armenia.
