Serbia: European Union stops funding for institutional care

Posted 30/7-11 at 23.37

After sustained pressure from human rights groups, particularly Serbia's Disability Rights Initiative (MDRI-S), the European Union has withdrawn support for the reconstruction of six institutions for disabled people in Serbia.The €5.1 million projecthas now beenredrafted to support the creation of community services that allow children and adults to leave institutions and livein the community.

This marks the first time that disability rights activists have succeeded in their demand that the European Union enforce their rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Dragana Ciric Milovanovic, Executive Director of MDRI-S, explains,"Spending money to fix up these buildings is not the answer.New, shiny,facilities create magnets for new placements.Parents who wanttheir children to live at home are forced to give up their child to an institution because it's theironly option.They don't get any support to do otherwise.Even in a clean institution, people are still restrained, overmedicated, neglected and sexually abused."

This is a ridiculous thing to do so. Maybe they might have done with some kinda intimation. However, Thanks for the update.

definitions of the various types of health care vary depending on the different cultural, political, organizational and disciplinary perspectives, there appears to be some consensus that primary care constitutes the first element of a continuing health care process, that may also include the provision of secondary and tertiary levels of care. Thanks.
