About HHRI

Our aim

Health and Human Rights aims to make resources on mental health more accessible to health professionals and others working with people exposed to human rights violations in disaster, war and conflict areas.

We gather open-source material and categorize it thematically through evaluation, analysis, and editing to provide a reliable and comprehensive database.

We hope this information will be of practical use and support in situations where more specialized services for mental healthcare are not available and where the provision of such services is essential.

The people:

Responsible for the daily work of HHRI are Nora Sveaass, Elisabeth Ng Langdal and Silvia Gurrola Bonilla and the board. In addition an informal group of international professionals is available to ensure that the material selected and presented has a good professional and ethical standard and may be relevant for the work in question. HHRI has also established a group of highly qualified professionals for the development and implementation of the its GBV Manual. Over the years many have contributed to this web site, in particular the council of ISHHR, Sigurd Kraft Gulbrandsen, Magnar Naustdalslid, Caroline Garcia-Aarsæther, Igor Leon Quilquichicon, Monica Bothner, Engelke Randers, Nina Teran, Maria Elena Alvarez Manilla, Doris Drews, Tabassom Fanaian, Carla Filizola Rodrigues and Carolina Montoya.
