AIHA Program Toolkits
AIHA's Program Toolkits bring together the models, tools, and resources developed by AIHA through 15 years of collaborative health partnership programs in Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia that can be used to establish and manage similar programs around the globe. Each toolkit is provided in an English and a Russian version.
These toolkits are now available online at the EurasiaHealth Knowledge Network.
The Healthy Communities Toolkit is based on the experience of AIHA's Healthy Communities partnerships, which have successfully galvanized organizations and individuals in communities throughout Europe and Eurasia to collaborate in identifying and addressing the major challenges to improving local health and well-being. The Healthy Communities Toolkit is a comprehensive guide designed to help community leaders learn about, set up, and manage their own healthy communities programs.
The AIHA Nursing Toolkit is designed to help healthcare institutions worldwide strengthen their nursing programs by learning from and following the effective models and methods AIHA has established together with our partners. The toolkit contains four separate modules representing different approaches to capacity-building and developing the skills of nurses: Primary Healthcare Nursing, Nursing Associations, Nursing Leadership, and Nursing Resource Centers.
The AIHA Primary Healthcare Centers Toolkit is designed to help healthcare institutions strengthen their delivery systems by creating Primary Healthcare Centers following the methods and models AIHA helped establish with our partners. In addition to providing step-by-step models to follow, relevant news articles, and proven techniques, this toolkit also includes AIHA’s comprehensive Clinical Practice Guidelines Manual, designed specifically for use within primary healthcare programs, including Primary Healthcare Centers. Together, these resources can provide an excellent framework for you to use when establishing your own Primary Healthcare Center—to learn from, replicate and implement.
The Women's Wellness Center (WWC) model, developed by AIHA, represents a new and integrated approach toward healthcare delivery for women. This Toolkit provides a collection of resources and materials related to the different components of the WWC model, as well as reference materials covering the core services provided by WWCs such as reproductive health, family planning, perinatal care, HIV/AIDS, mental health, crisis intervention, health promotion and others. The resources in this toolkit can be utilized to replicate, step by step, the development of a WWC or to enhance the capacity of existing healthcare providers working in women's health.
