Peking – Melbourne partnership reaches new heights under CAHHF funding

May 11, 2012

The China-Australia collaboration in mental health has initiated a trial program that has involved 62 sites across China. The program now covers 766 counties and is co-funded by both central and provincial governments.

AAMH work in China has been highlighted in the recent final meeting of the China-Australia Health and HIV/AIDS Facility (CAHHF) project.  This innovate funding model has assisted AAMH in working closely with our partner’s in China, The Peking University Institute of Mental Health.

AAMH is proud to be working alongside our Chinese counterparts to play a small role in building models of community mental health across China.

The China-Australia Health and HIV/AIDS Facility (CAHHF) is jointly overseen by China’s Ministry of Health, Australia’s Department of Health and Ageing, China’s Ministry of Commerce and the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), which also funds the Facility.

The Facility uses expertise from both Chinese and Australian health institutions to support the Chinese Government’s health reform priorities. The Facility acknowledges the mutual national interests of China and Australia. It is a new form of development partnership that is flexible and responsive.
