  • ASIGUR Project (Area of Locally Governed Integrated Services Respecting Bacau and Vrancea)

    financing: Finanțator FRDS (Fondul Român de Dezvoltare Socială), în cadrul Programului de „Dezvoltare locală, reducerea sărăciei și creșterea incluziunii romilor”, finanțat prin Granturile SEE și Norvegiene 2014-2021
    country: Romania

    Running from April 2021 to December 2023 in Bacau and Vrancea counties, the ASIGUR project is carried out in partnership with the General Directorates of Social Assistance and Child Protection of Bacau (Project Promoter) and Vrancea. Vulnerable population (including people with disabilities) in 50 localities, mostly rural, benefit from integrated services (social assistance, health, non-formal education). We, the CHPS, ensure access to health services - including mobile and telemedicine services - for the vulnerable population and provide parenting education courses. The project extends a model of integrated community-based service delivery developed by UNICEF, where CHPS was a partner on the health component, to disadvantaged communities. Last but not least, CPSS has trained within the project the professionals working with vulnerable people in the 50 localities through the social and civic competences course, accredited by the ANC (National Authority for Qualifications), and is developing /providing professionals at local and county level with a digital application/platform that simplifies the identification of the integrated social service needs of the vulnerable population and the services provided.

  • Innovative interventions aiming to increase the demand for Covid 19 vaccination in Romania

    financing: WHO
    country: Romania

    Between September 2021 and February 2022, together with the University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Craiova, we carried out an intervention aimed at increasing adherence to vaccination against COVID-19 in Dolj County. The project, supported by the World Health Organization, aimed to involve large employers in Dolj county, where group or individual sessions were held with employees hesitant to vaccinate, supported by mixed teams of family doctors and company/occupational medicine doctors. Real-time evaluation of the intervention demonstrated the effectiveness of the intervention, and the importance of involving stakeholders from the outset. The project has also produced a Guide for Employers available here (xxx- is on the current CPSS website under publications).
