2005-2006

Since mid 2005 ICHD focused on one of the biggest killers in Armenia - Cancer. The non-communicable diseases (NCDs) increasingly create critical health and economic challenges for Armenian society and state. The cancer is one of the three biggest killers in Armenia causing about 20% of deaths. The profile of the cancer and risk factors in Armenia implicitly indicates the lack of national capacities to prevent and control the cancers, as well as the lack of awareness among general public about one of the biggest killers and its risk factors. The public health policies and primary healthcare system in Armenia do not address early diagnosis of the cancer properly. The awareness and behavior among general public, as well as the overall environment are not favorable for reduction of the risk factors for cancer in the country. ICHD focuses on tackling the prevention of the cancer first. The Center targeted the dimension of public awareness as the key instrument to leverage the prevention of the cancer.

2006 - 2010

Very few initiatives have brought together Armenians and Azeris around the table of discussions on the resolution of Nagorno Karabakh (NK) conflict since ever. While the decision makers are engaged in effort to resolve the NK conflict at the negotiation table, the people seem to stay alienated from the issue that has vital impact on each and every family in both Armenia and Azerbaijan. People in both societies needed effective mechanisms to get their voices heard by those who led the negotiations and strike the deal. One of the most effective mechanisms enabling people to speak loudly and being heard by the decision makers is the ICHD's Town Hall Meeting mechanism. We have used the THM mechanism to get the opinions and perspectives of the people in Armenia, Nagorno Karabakh Republic (NKR) and Azerbaijan on peaceful resolution of the NK conflict through 2006-2010...

2002 - 2008

Armenia’s public financial management (PFM) reform agenda aims to improve fiscal discipline and allocative and operational efficiency. This goal is reflected in Government’s own documents, like the Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF). The Government’s reform agenda covers activities across the PFM system, including MTEF and program budgeting reforms, treasury reforms, internal and external audit reforms, accounting reforms, and others.  These reforms cannot be seen to stand alone, but rather as specific but interconnected interventions at different points within one PFM system. The ICHD has been one of the key institutions in Armenia both advocating for the PFM reforms and providing policy advice and technical inputs in the process of the reforms since 2002. ICHD engaged all critical processes of the PFM system through 2002-2008.
