Checklist for National Societies’ Preparation for auxiliary role discussions

This checklist is meant to provide guidance to National Societies who would like to prepare for discussions with their public authorities on the auxiliary role. This checklist is not exhaustive, and is merely a tool to collect information that could help the National Society to prepare for and facilitate discussions. 

Any exploration of how to make use of the auxiliary role must take into account the national context. A National Society which is interested in enhancing the auxiliary role should also look at potential risks such as the perception of being too close to the government or how to avoid confusion around the National Society’s role, for example.
