Short Description:

Overall goal

In einem 12-monatigen Lehrgang an der Universität Innsbruck wurden 4 MedizinerInnen aus Uganda und Äthiopien im Rahmen des Universitätslehrgangs "Community Health" basismedizinische Grundkenntnisse vermittelt. Im zweiten Ausbildungsjahr von November 2004 bis Sommer 2005 führen die TeilnehmerInnen unter Betreuung von lokalen Institutionen eine Feldforschung zu einem für das Land wichtigen Problem durch. Nach Approbation der Arbeit wird der Titel "Master for Public Health in Developing Countries" verliehen. Um den Abschluss der Thesisarbeit und die Erlangung des Mastergrades der 4 letzten TeilnehmerInnen sicherzustellen (2. Jahr der Ausbildung), soll bis August 2005 ein halbtägiger Bürobetrieb der School of Public Health finanziert werden, die in diesem Zusammenhang wissenschaftliche und administrative Koordinationsaufgaben wahrnimmt.

    • BMLFUW - Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water
    • EU - Funds of the European Commission
    • Others - various other donors are listed in ADA’s annual business report.
  • Type of Aid – Aid modalities: classifies transfers from the donor to the first recipient of funds such as budget support, core contributions and pooled programmes and funds to CSOs and multilateral organisations, project-type interventions, experts and other technical assistance, scholarships and student costs in donor countries, debt relief, administrative costs and other in-donor expenditures.
  • Purpose/ sector code: classifies the specific area of the recipient’s economic or social structure, funded by a bilateral contribution.
  • Tied/Untied: Untied aid is defined as loans and grants whose proceeds are fully and freely available to finance procurement from all OECD countries and substantially all developing countries. Transactions are considered tied unless the donor has, at the time of the aid offer, clearly specified a range of countries eligible for procurement which meets the tests for “untied” aid.
