Human Genomics in Global Health

Nongovernmental organizations

The World Health Organization has a long and rich history of working with Nongovermental organizations (NGOs) in order to strengthen the impact of its global health interventions. These organizations together with WHO help in the formulation and implementation of health programmes not only at country level but also in remote geographical areas. They help in advocating for public health issues to a broader audience, addressing the sensitive areas of social concern and raising financial support for local health goals. In recognition of the importance of their role, HGN is increasingly collaborating with them to frame, implement, and promote programme goals.
