Non-Governmental Organizations in health and development: an Italian excellence
The Embassy of Italy will host a seminar on the excellence of Italian NGOs and their activities in health and social development to highlight new approaches and their results in areas of interest to potential funders
June 7, 2013
Italian NGOs working in the health sector in developing countries are excellent from the point of view of both technical accomplishments and procedural and ethical integrity. The three major federations (FOCSIV, COCIS, CIPSI) and many of their associated groups have an important history and are a very important asset that merit attention in the United States and by large multilateral agencies like the World Bank.
The format is a day long event presenting the activities and experiences of Italian NGOs providing development aid in the health and social sectors. Attention will be given to new approaches and the results obtained in various areas and in sectors of interest to potential funders in the greater metropolitan areas (international agencies, development banks, U.S. federal agencies, private foundations).
There will be exhibits and multimedia presentations by the NGOs and a series of seminars dedicated to the social and health sector on topics that include diseases affecting the poor, millennium objectives for health, chronic ailments, orphan pharmaceuticals, the war on exclusion and on counterfeit drugs and medical equipment.
