Health for All Project – Albania
The Health for All Project contributes to the national response to the high burden of preventable mortality and morbidity by strengthening the health system to effectively promote health and address preventable ill-health. The health promotion approach is two pronged, strengthening both the health system to more effectively promote health and the health literacy of communities and empowerment of individuals, families and communities to take responsibility and action for their own health and to realize their rights of access to quality services.
The primary target for project support and capacity building in health promotion and disease prevention are the key implementers; general practitioners, nurses (including patronage nurses) as well as civil society organisations and communities themselves to ensure that health service clients, particularly vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, become more ‘health literate’. The project also supports government to elaborate a health promotion strategy.
