The Department of Technical Cooperation (TC) consists of the Office of the Deputy Director General, four regional Divisions (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Latin America), the Division of Programme Support and Coordination and the Division of the Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT). It provides strategic direction for the IAEA's technical cooperation programme, and is responsible (in close collaboration with Member States) for the planning, formulation, implementation and monitoring of the programme.
The objective of PACT is to assist Member States, within the IAEA's one-house approach to cancer control and working closely with regional Divisions in the Department of Technical Cooperation as well as other relevant Departments and Offices, to introduce, expand and improve their cancer care capacity by integrating radiotherapy into a comprehensive cancer control programme that maximizes its therapeutic effectiveness and public health impact. The Division of PACT is headed by the Director PACT, who reports to the Deputy Director General of the Department of Technical Cooperation.
Under the overall guidance of Director PACT and the direct supervision of the Section Head of the Resource Mobilization Section (SH-PACT-RMS), the Consultant (Fundraising) drives PACT's resource mobilization efforts by providing technical expertise in drafting sound project proposals on comprehensive cancer control activities in IAEA Member States as well as providing analysis of data and information on emerging donor trends.
