Programme Purpose: 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.
The strategic objectives set by the Romanian Red Cross in its 2007-2010 strategy cover the four key priority areas outlined in the International Federation's Strategy 2010. Based on these strategic objectives, the National Society focuses on disaster preparedness and response, health and care, organizational development, community mobilization and promoting humanitarian values.
Disaster management remains a priority area for the National 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 prevention of HIV.
Programme(s) summary: No activity in any of the Federation supported programmes has taken place due to no funding being available. The Romanian Red Cross has been active in seeking other sources of funding, partners and opportunities.
Financial situation: The total 2010 budget is CHF 74,385, of which zero was covered during the reporting period. Expenditure against budget was equally zero.
