Access to Healthcare is a partnership programme, meaning that it supports projects where Coloplast engages with external partners to improve conditions for people with intimate healthcare needs. These may be healthcare practitioner organizations, local authorities, government representatives, end-user associations, hospitals and more.
Because Access to Healthcare seeks to build relationships and knowledge-sharing with partners, partners should be involved early on in the project development process and have clearly defined roles and interests in the project. You will need to consider questions such as:
- How are your suggested partners right for your project?
- What relationships and knowledge do they bring to the table, and how will they benefit from working with Coloplast, etc.?
- Have you spoken to your potential partners and if so, do they share project aims and their proposed role?
