Health Care Professionals (HCP) Workshop

Closing session

During this session a presentation was made which outlined the support that The Partnership is able to provide to the HCPAs in order to facilitate the achievement of the goals outlined in the action plans. These areas of potential intervention consisted of technical support, especially in regards to the identification of sources for funding and in proposal writing and advocacy (lobbying on behalf of HCPAs) and facilitating communication among HCPAs and between HCPAs and members of other constituencies among others. The presentation also underlined the need for follow up and reporting on action plans.

This session also included a panel discussion on the types of support available to national HCPAs from international and regional professional associations. The session ended with the signing of a statement of commitment by participants.
