Health Resource Facility for Australia's Aid Program

The Health Resource Facility (HRF) for Australia's Aid Program assists staff to make well informed policy and operating decisions for their international aid programme in health and HIV. A demand driven service, the HRF was established to help meet the increased demand for health and HIV expertise.

The main function of the HRF is to source and mobilise international health and HIV technical assistance, with a focus on the Asia Pacific region. In addition to short-term technical assistance, the HRF provides information on health and HIV by conducting literature searches, undertaking analysis and synthesis of material into short reports or briefing documents. The facility also delivers professional development services for staff on health and HIV issues.

Managed by our health consultants in association with IDSS, Australia, HRF services are made available to staff through the Canberra-based help desk and through the facility's dedicated website. This type of resource facility is a new approach to accessing and quality assuring advice, technical expertise and assistance in health and HIV across its development programme.

The HRF has provided support across a wide variety of technical areas, including nutrition, civil society involvement, emerging infectious diseases and human resources for health. Assignments include a review of the organisation's Pacific Non-Communicable Diseases programme, and an assessment of the status of planning for the health workforce, with a focus on rural facilities and staff in Vanuatu.
