The Biennial meeting workshops were particularly well attended.
IPOPI’s NMOs were asked to share highlights of their most successful projects in the last two years and their planned activities for the near future in a workshop called ‘NMOs successes and challenges’. The agenda included an interactive session on strategies for fundraising and examples of several successful cases provided by NMO leaders themselves.
The Primary Immunodeficiencies Principles of Care were also subject to a workshop aimed at helping NMOs with the implementation of the Principles in their countries. You can read more about in our dedicated article.
The workshop ‘Ideas worth spreading’, held on the third day of the meeting, was a great opportunity for NMOs to learn from each other. All participants were asked to give ideas on 8 topics – awareness, advocacy, access to care, data collection, stakeholder cooperation, social media presence, patient education, trustees/volunteers development – and later split into smaller groups to prepare and present a report for each topic.
