The role of NGOs, academic institutions, professional associations, and other non-state actors

GSF & UNITAR NSOAP series: The role of NGOs, academic institutions, professional associations, and other non-state actors in supporting the NSOAP process.

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academic institutions, professional associations and other non-state actors can support the design and implementation of NSOAPs across various stages.

They can provide resources, tools and manpower, as well as help coordinate national and international organizations working together towards achieving NSOAPs.

Academic institutions and professional societies play an important role in advancing the global surgery agenda through research, technical assistance, policy work and advocacy.  Translation of academic research into actionable policies requires a concrete implementation strategy led by relevant stakeholders, including local champions, frontline providers, and government leadership. Stakeholders from both local academic institutions and global partners can help support NSOAP planning from the initial stages, through to evaluation and monitoring post implementation.

This online event explores the role of these actors during the NSOAP process.

Learning objectives
