General information and objectivesThe concept of the Regional Network of CLIPS Focal Points is to develop capacity in NMHSs through the selection and training of individual experts and to develop interaction on a Regional basis. It is proposed that the latter objective will be achieved by networking Focal Points into sub-Regional groupings with Rapporteurs appointed by the Regional Associations acting as coordinators. Confirmation of this approach is being sought in each Regional Association meeting as they occur; Regional Associations I, II, III, V and VI have promulgated the approach while Regional Association IV has indicated a preference for regional, rather than national, Focal Points.
