All partnerships are underpinned by capacity building principles to build on the partner’s existing capacity and ensure sustainable programs and services. The provision of technical support is evidence informed and based on program implementation progress and success. Together — with our donors and partners — we can address the challenges of better health for those living with HIV, hepatitis, sexually transmissible infections, and emerging infectious diseases.
The Pacific HCW Support Project is funded by AusAID’s Regional HIV/AIDS Capacity Building Program (2012-2014). The Project will strengthen HIV and sexual health service provision in the Pacific through improved education and support for health care workers and enhanced involvement of key affected populations. This project is a continuation of a collaboration between Albion and the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Fiji National University (CMNHS/FNU), with further support from the Pacific Sexual and Reproductive Health Research Centre (PacS-RHRC) (2012 – 2015).
Albion is the lead agency working in collaboration with Marie Stopes International Timor Leste (MSITL), a subsidiary of Marie Stopes International Australia. TAC-TAC will train and mentor health workers to provide HIV Testing and Counselling. Beginning with a needs assessment and stakeholder consultations, the project will end by producing a lessons learnt film or photo language exhibition to share results (2012 – 2014).
World Food Programme Technical Support Service Agreement (June – December 2014)
Albion International has been working with the World Food Programme (WFP) since 2006 to deliver technical support and assistance to WFP Headquarters, the Regional Bureau for Asia and country offices in the Asia region. This support includes: country office level support in the design, implementation and evaluation of nutrition programs and activities.
The Albion International currently provides technical support to the WFP Cambodia for the development of training curriculum materials and a national implementation and evaluation plan on the Revised Good Food Toolkit for Health Facility staff. The Good Food Toolkit, was originally published in 2009, was revised with technical support from Albion International in 2013. The 2013 revision updated and reviewed existing content and expanded content to include child and maternal health. The toolkit is used by home base care team members, health facility and non-government organisation staff who provide nutrition care and support programs for adults, children and communities living and affected by HIV.
