On 13 December 2017, IDOM held a training on “Empowering the Staff of Psychiatric Hospitals in Preventing Torture and Inhuman and Degrading Treatment”. The event was dedicated to the management of Codru Clinical Psychiatric Hospital (including chief doctors of sections, higher medical assistants, and the staff responsible for assisting and supervising hospital patients).
Over 50 persons were trained in preventing ill treatment based on CPT standards and CAT recommendations. Trainers in the event were Dumitru Russu, Coordinator of IDOM’s Monitoring and Reporting Program, and Ion Caracuian, Head of the Torture Combating Section of the General Prosecutor’s Office of Moldova.
This activity was financially supported by Swedish Agency for International Cooperation Development (SIDA).
