2020 Geneva Prize for Human Rights in Psychiatry

For 20 years the Geneva Prize has been conferred triennially and recognises a person or organisation for remarkable achievements in promoting equity and humanity in psychiatric care, reducing discriminations against patients and encouraging the application of Human Rights and Ethics in Psychiatry.


The Prize includes a certificate of commendation and a cheque in the amount of CHF 20'000 (just over USD 20,000). The 2020 award winner will be selected by an international Jury of experts, including the President of the WPA, and will be invited at the 20th WPA World Congress of Psychiatry in Bangkok where the Prize will be conferred.


Deadline for nominations is 31 March 2020 and can be submitted to francois.ferrero@unige.ch, President of the Council of Foundation


The Prize is made possible thanks to the support of the Geneva Government, the Swiss Federation of Psychiatrists and Psychotherapists and the Geneva Medical Association.

Thanks to the support of the WPA, the Geneva Prize has the great privilege of conferring the Award during the World Congress of Psychiatry.
