Health Care Professional Associations Workshop, Burkina Faso: Previous page | 1,2,3

Meeting activities and agenda


1. Presentation of success stories or examples

A success story pertaining to a "growth area" will be presented and discussed. The stories will illustrate the role played by the HCPAs in the success and will highlight best practices or lessons learned.

2. Panels and plenary on each of the objectives

A panel discussion will follow each presentation. Panels will each be composed of 4 - 6 people from different professional associations, agencies and/or organizations. Each panel will be chaired by a facilitator. A list of discussion points will be available for each panel to ensure full review of topics. Time is allotted after the discussions for comments and questions.

3. Country working groups

The expected results of the meeting are centered on the identification of priority actions that country teams will to pursue in a 1-2 year time-frame. These actions will strengthen the role of HCPAs in supporting national MNCH efforts. The country team participants will also identify support needed from regional and international agencies and the government in order for these activities to be feasible.

The country working groups will be the key forum for the identification of these activities and needs. Three sessions are planned. The first two will focus on selecting 2 or 3 of the 5 growth areas for HCP Associations. Groups will be asked to:

  • Articulate a vision for each objective selected
  • Identify current obstacles to reaching the vision
  • Select 3- 5 priority actions that country teams agree to pursue in the next 1 – 2 years. They should link identified actions to their country’s current MNCH plans
  • Develop and implementation plan for the actions (who, when, how). Plan should indicate how associations can work together in the implementation of the actions.
