MAARO001 Annual report 2011
This report covers the period 01 January 2011 to 31 December 2011.
In line with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies’ (IFRC) Strategy 2020, the aim of the Federation-supported programmes in Romania is to save lives, protect livelihoods, and strengthen recovery from disasters and crises; to enable healthy and safe living; and to promote social inclusion and a culture of non-violence and peace.
Disaster management remains a priority area for the Romanian Red Cross Society. As set out in its strategy document, the aim of the Romanian Red Cross is to develop joint actions with vulnerable communities and authorities focusing on disaster risk reduction at community level.
The health and care programme aims to scale up tuberculosis activities focusing on people with multi-drug resistant TB (MD-RTB) and the prevention of HIV.
The lack of funding in the reporting period meant that no activities supported by the International Federation took place. The Romanian Red Cross has been active in seeking other sources of funding, partners and opportunities.
