All our activities in Albania
After considerable political, social and economic problems, and after having surmounted the emergency of the Kosovar refugees at the end of the 90s, the country appears to have undertaken comprehensive reconstruction, which is gradual yet continuous. Spurred by their neighbors and eager to become part of Europe, the Albanian people want to exit forever from the tunnel of underdevelopment in which they were abandoned by the past regime.
Dokita has been operating in Albania since 1993 with the help of many people and also thamks to the co-financing of public institutions. It has worked from the outset with the local counterpart, the NSBC Foundation, an non-profit organization legally registered in Albania. They have worked together on numerous projects related with health care and training in Tirana and Elbasan. Together they also faced the Kosovar refugee crisis with, among other activities, a camp that housed over 3,000 people. Ever since 2000, and in full compliance with Albanian laws, Dokita has had its own office in the country. With funding from the Department of Social Affairs of the Italian Presidency of the Council of Ministers(DAS) and the Department for Social Policies and Social Security of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policies - Italian Coordination Humanitarian Aid, Dokita has carried out projects for the training of home care assistants and community managers, and has run courses on printing techniques and graphics for disabled persons. Established in 2000 in collaboration with the State Social Service of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of Albania was the National Center for Persons with Limited Capacity (National Center PCL). Dokita has also operated annual training courses for nurses in health care management and obstetrics. Established in 1998 in accordance with the Ministry of Education and Science of Albania was the Institute of Specialization in Health Care Professions. Available since 2000 at the Dokita Center has been a physical rehabilitation service for disabled persons and those suffering post-traumatic stress. In order to raise the technical and theoretical level of physiotherapists in Albania, Dokita and the NSBC Foundation, with co-financing from the Italian Cooperation Department, opened the first Center for Rehabilitation Therapy (CRT) in 2005 and launched the first three year degree course in physiotherapy with programs approved by the Albanian Ministry of Education, an important step for the introduction of the professional figure of physiotherapist in the Albanian national health service. All the activities described above were carried out in close collaboration with Dokita’s local counterpart and the competent Ambanian ministerial authorities, including the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education
