|Support SFDA Second strategic plan implementation - SFDA 2|
Saudi Food & Drugs Authority (SFDA) completed the implementation of its first strategic plan (2007-2011).
Taking strategic planning as the planning approach to achieve its vision and mission, SFDA completed its forward looking planning by developing its second strategic plan (2012-2016). SFDA has approached the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to seek technical assistance and to jointly collaborate in achieving its strategic goals set out in SFDA second strategic plan, based upon UNDP’s comparative and competitive advantages in providing the required technical support.
in this context, the objective of this Project Document (PD) is to provide substantive support to SFDA, through enabling SFDA to implement Food, Drugs and medical Devices strategic goals and initiatives laid out in SFDA second strategic plan; as well as develop the required institutional capacity to discharge its mandate and ultimately meet the national development plan’s aspiration to achieve its vision.
This joint project will benefit SFDA —in specific- in terms of institutional capacity development to support SFDA in building broad and deep capabilities, help SFDA to ensure thoroughness, transparency, and consistency in enforcement and communication, complete the coverage of all relevant areas as per SFDA’s mandate, and finally develop systems and processes to improve pro-activity in addressing emerging risk.
This nationally executed project aims at providing advisory services, specialized experts, and administrative support to SFDA. In the process, these activities will help in developing the authority’s policy, advocacy, and executing capacity in the areas of food, drugs and medical devices.
