The time for EFA’s yearly capacity building training has arrived! Do you have what it takes to be advocate for the patient needs but you are missing impact?  Do you feel you can improve this or that skill to make a change for patients in your country? Are you very good in something but a bit weak in other and feel that is slowing down the development of your organisations? Then join EFA’s capacity building webinars!

As you know the EFA Capacity Building Project is successfully ongoing since 2014 when EFA identified a great need to increasingly support its members and to strengthen their capacities at the national level. The meetings held since 2014 had the ambition of building relevant skills for better cooperation and coordination with relevant stakeholders and improving the members’ knowledge base and to address the areas identified by Members where experience is lacking in order to facilitate growth of the organisation. So far EFA members who have benefited from the project activities reported, one year after the training, very positive feedback on the training and improvements in the organisations approach and initiatives.  

This year training will not happen via meetings but will be online sessions called webinars, to allow more members to follow the sessions from their home or offices. We will address six topics Governance, Fundraising, Membership, Project Management, Communication, Advocacy with 2 webinars per topic. The webinars will be delivered in English by experts in the field and the material presented will be available to all participants afterwards. EFA members will also be invited to share their best practices on each of the topic identified.

The webinars are open to EFA members and their members, individual and organisations. To sign up, please fill in the online form.
