Results of monitoring visit to neuropsychiatric boarding houses to which the wards from residential institutions of the ATO area were evacuated

On April 27-28, 2015, four monitors visited Veselokutivskyi Neuropsychiatric Boarding House (NPBH) (Kirovohrad region) and Illinskyi NPBH (Dnipropetrovsk region) to determine the impact of relocation of NPBH patients from ATO area on quality of their life, the state of compliance of the rights of both displaced persons and those wards who joined the new group and have already been receiving services.

In particular, the overall scale of wards relocation and compliance with standards of their living were analysed. The criteria of human rights violations regarding persons with psychiatric diagnoses in terms of military operations and their relocation were defined, with further development of forms of reports of human rights violations and the estimation of possibility of evacuation of NPBH and wards outside the territories beyond GOU control.

The visit was a part of the USAID Human Rights in Action Activity. Its results are compiled and published in an analytical report.
