The Netherlands Helsinki Committee (NHC) has launched a regional “COVID-19 Solidarity Programme 2020-2022” 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 psychiatric hospitals in Ukraine.

This includes the full range of relevant issues including (discontinuation of) health care, (lack of) contact with relatives or loved ones, inclusiveness in COVID-19 vaccination programme in the country, and other related basic human rights. In addition to monitoring and reporting, the objective would also be to provide advice and assistance to stakeholders, including confined persons, personnel, relatives, lawyers, on problems they encounter in COVID-19 prevention and treatment.
