Additional reference materials are also included for more detailed information on specific subjects and issues in relation to NRMs. This practice guide is for government officials and/or other stakeholders who are charged with assessing the viability of a National Referral Mechanism in their individual country or who are overseeing the creation or amendment of a National Referral Mechanism.
