Allen + Clarke regularly undertakes international development assistance projects in the Pacific and Asia and we also work further afield in countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe. We help with projects aimed at improving the social and economic conditions in developing countries. Areas to date have included professional regulation, strategic planning, capability building, emergency preparedness (including pandemic planning), health sector legislative reform and agency and programme reviews and evaluation.
A fundamental part of our approach is to work collaboratively with people, partners, and organisations in-country along with external funding agencies such as the World Health Organization, the New Zealand Aid programme and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community.
