- Remarks Because NMCPs receive support from multiple donors, the assessment process should aim to engage these partners in the assessment in order to gain their involvement in following up on the recommendations. This is especially important since no single donor may have the resources to implement the entire capacity-building plan. For more information, contact: Health Systems 20/20
