Djibouti: Health project for refugees


AAH Djibouti management and field staff teams attended a two-day training hosted by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) from 6th to 7th June 2017.


This training was conducted in preparation for support towards strengthening tuberculosis (TB) and HIV services in refugee camps. A grant by IGAD and Global Fund (GF) will support improvement, availability and utilization of tuberculosis and HIV services by refugees through complementing the efforts of other development partners and national programmes.


The goal of the 2-day training was to create a common understanding about the indicators and performance measurement of the performance framework of the grant among program and monitoring and evaluation staff. It also aimed to support the improvement of TB/HIV data quality.


AAH’s Finance officer Mahad Mohamed said, “I look forward to working with the teams to strengthen the grant management and link the programmatic achievement and fund utilization in the camps under this grant.”


AAH Djibouti field staff teams comprised doctors, nurses, pharmacists and community health supervisors from Ali Sabbie, Ali Addeh, Holl Holl, and Obock sites. Other participants were from UNHCR and TB/HIV and HIS officers from the Djibouti Ministry of Health.
