Multinational Needs Assessment (MNAP) and Surveillance programmes

The MNAP projects aim to establish and monitor the needs of nations and members and also feed into regional and global needs assessments. All MNAP projects are evidence-led based on needs and focus on different pharmacy areas, including science, practice, workforce and education/CPD. MNAP ensures a consistent methodological approach to assessing needs and evaluating trends by identifying the necessity for FIP-enabled transformation programs and involving various FIP constituencies. MNAP serves as both a member benefit and a recruitment tool for non-members, aligning with FIP Development Goals (DGs). MNAP provides a systematic vehicle for GPO data collection for the decade ahead and supports disseminating results through reports, peer-reviewed publications, and membership bulletins.

The multinational needs assessment projects include the following:

1- Multinational Education Training Needs Assessment (METNA)
2- Pharmacists’ role in diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis booster, COVID-19 and meningitis vaccinations
3- The role of pharmacists in iron deficiency anaemia
4- How can digital health support national pharmaceutical care delivery? A regional and global assessment of priorities and challenges
5- What community pharmacy teams need to support good hygiene as part of people’s self-care
6- Community pharmacy team’s understanding of self-care

The surveillance projects focus on the systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of pharmacy-related data. This is important for the monitoring and understanding of the evolving trends and advancements in key areas of practice, education, and workforce. Through surveillance, FIP offers its members access to valuable data visualisations and interactive tools facilitated by the FIP Atlas, impact database, and development goals indicators.
