about us

This web­site is a project of the health pro­fes­sion­als action net­work of the Ger­man sec­tion of Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al. We are work­ing on this project vol­un­tar­i­ly, inde­pen­dent and pro bono. We are full-time health pro­fes­sion­als like physi­cians, psy­chother­a­pists, ther­a­pists, social work­ers in the med­ical field and so on.

Here, we want to pro­vide you a col­lec­tion of rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion about severe human right vio­la­tions on peo­ple with men­tal ill­ness­es or dis­abil­i­ties pri­mar­i­ly in low-income countries.

This infor­ma­tive web­site achieves to help activists find­ing the rel­e­vant mate­r­i­al for their work, also enabling to get in con­tact with us for net­work­ing in the field of human rights aci­tivsm on this topic.

Giv­ing infor­ma­tion about a top­ic like this sig­ni­fies push­ing it up onto the polit­i­cal agenda.

For the sake of help­ing dis­abled and men­tal­ly ill peo­ple to pro­tect their human rights.
