The deinstitutionalization of adults with disabilities in Georgia soon will come to an end

In Georgia, process of transferring adults with disabilities from large boarding houses to family-type homes began in 2011 and is still ongoing. In 2020, Caritas Czech Republic, with the financial support of the Czech Development Agency and in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health of Georgia, developed a deinstitutionalization strategy and an action plan. In addition, our organization took responsibility for providing community-based homes and services for persons with disabilities (PwDs) living in two large boarding homes under state care.
