Collaborating with the community requires the selection of the right partners. However, for a variety of reasons, not all community organizations and/or nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) make good partners for health care organizations. For example, there may be concerns about whether the community organizations or NGOs work more efficiently or more effectively (Maltha, 2012).
For this Discussion, consider several community organizations and/or NGOs that may be appropriate options for your Community Needs Assessment. Select one organization that you feel has the potential to add value to your health initiative.
Post a brief description of your proposed organization or NGO. Explain how you could develop that partnership and collaboration initiatives. Finally, describe the potential barriers that you may face during that partnership and recommend ways to overcome those barriers.
