They also discussed empowering the emerging associations, institutional build-up, requirements of the supporting bodies, the emerging associations' need and boosting the relationship between the associations and the Program.

It pointed out that the forum reviewed four topics including establishing and launching the health association and the role of the supporting bodies to boost the launching of the emerging associations. The forum also held a dialogue session with charitable work experts to make use of their experiences in the launching of the emerging associations. In this regard, the forum hosted a number of supporting bodies such as the Ministry of Labor and Social Development to acquaint the associations with types of support, the General Authority of Awqaf to highlight the role of "Sustainability and Empowerment" program in supporting the associations and the Social Development Bank to introduce the bank's products.
