Background

PAS Center (former National Center for Medical Information - MedNet) was established in 1999 to take over the activities of the Medical Internet Program of the Soros Foundation - Moldova and ensure its sustainable development. PAS Center is a Moldovan, independent, non-profit, non-political organization. In 2007 the Center was reorganized, including the reform of its goals and objectives. Within this reorganization, PAS Center took over initiatives from the American International Health Alliance Inc (AIHA). Since 2003 AIHA carried out a comprehensive program aimed to strengthening TB control in Moldova working together with the Ministry of Health, Global Fund and other key partners. About 80% of AIHA staff formed the PAS Center team to assure sustainability and continuation of program initiatives on TB training and communication.
