Reference on performance of the actions to ensure implementation of the 2014-2019 Strategy on Maintenance and Improvement of Mental Health in Republic of Armenia: 2014-2016August 31, 2017 Reference
Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly-Vanadzor monitors the performance of the actions approved by the RA Government Decrees to make reforms in mental health.
The 2014-2019 Strategy on the Maintenance and Improvement of Mental Health in the Republic of Armenia and the List of Actions to Ensure its Implementation was approved by the RA Government Decree of April 17, 2014.
In 2015, HCA Vanadzor published the results of monitoring the performance of the actions of the Strategy planned for 2014-2015. This Reference presents the results of monitoring the actions planned for 2014-2016.
The Strategy is based on the responses to the inquiries sent to the entities responsible for implementation of the actions and co-implementing such actions.
While the implementation of the Strategy largely depends on financial investments, the entities responsible do not mostly address them in their responses. Judging by the monitoring results, the lack of cooperation among the co-implementing entities also negatively affected the implementation of the Strategy. The results and terms of the actions are not clear and measurable, which makes it difficult to assess them.
The Reference also covers suggestions on solving the identified problems and improving the progress in implementing the strategy. In particular, it was suggested:
- improving communication and co-operation among the bodies performing the actions;
- allocating and providing from the state and community budgets the funds necessary to perform the actions;
- setting up a monitoring group comprising representatives of public bodies and civil society to assess the implementation of the Strategy;
- excluding discriminatory wording in the documents prepared within implementation of the Strategy;
- formulating clear and measurable actions and outcomes in the plans of the actions ensuring implementation of strategies and concepts.
Only 6 out of the 30 actions planned for 2014-2016 were fully performed and 10 actions were not performed at all.
