Tibet-CTA-USAID-2016-8Dharamshala — The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded a Certificate of Appreciation to the Department of Health of the Central Tibetan Administration for its effective and efficient management of funds and implementation of health projects.

The certificate was presented by Mr Jonathan Addleton, Mission Director of USAID to India at a ceremony held at Nyatri hall to launch the assessment report of the Tibetan Health System Capacity Strengthening Project.

In his remarks, Mr Addleton said that this certificate is recognition of the quality health service being provided by the health department, and reaffirmed USAID's deep commitment to help the Tibetan community to improve their education, economy, and health status.

He also lauded the Tibetan Medicare System, a community based health insurance scheme, initiated by the department to serve the health care needs of the public by creating a more sustainable financing source. “Tibetans certainly deserve the healthcare they need at the right time without struggling to pay medical bills that they cannot afford,” he said, referring to TMS.

Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay, in his address, thanked the USAID for their continued assistance and expressed that the certificate of appreciation would further inspire the staff to work harder.

“This Certificate of Appreciation is a reaffirmation of the fact that the staff of the Central Tibetan Administration, particularly the health department, has been doing good work,” he said.
    
“This is a first such letter of appreciation that the Central Tibetan Administration has received from a foreign organisation.” He added.

The Health Kalon (Minister), Mr Choekyong Wangchuk, delivered a brief introduction of the health department and its various projects. He emphasised the importance of preventive healthcare initiatives to enhance the overall Tibetan public health.

USAID is a US governmental aid organistaion that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realise their potential. It is also one of the primary donors of CTA’s health and education projects.
