- Professional Training courses for relevant prison staff on Health and Human Rights 21-22 and 28-29 October 2009 The training was organized in cooperation with the Centre for Staff Training at the General Prisons Directorate. The aim of the training was to provide prison staff with knowledge on national and international human rights standards, including the UNCAT and OPCAT to prevent human rights violations in prisons, to raise important issues on the implementation of such instruments with a special focus on health care. The selection of participants was made through the General Prisons Directorate. Methodologically the ARCT provided training modules developed in advance and case studies for all the participants, focusing though on an active-participatory approach rather than a conference-like approach. Participants in the training took part actively in discussions and opinions not only on pre-selected theoretical and practical issues in regard to their work on implementation of international standards and human rights violations in the prisons system, but also on positions and

recommendations formulated by ARCT to be implemented from the prison authorities. From ARCT viewpoint, the training provided a possibility to monitor internal operation procedures in the prison system and allow the ARCT to tailor recommendations for improvements of places of detention (e.g. on legal and human resources issues) within the prison system. Presentations and specific topics of great interest were part of ARCT publication reviews. Annex 9 (Photos and agendas)
