After the national eye care strategic plan for IPEC is created, an operational plan is implemented.
An operational plan is linked to the strategic plan, but adds specific details for all actions and projects to be implemented over the next year.
The Package of Eye Care Interventions (PECI) and the Eye Care Competency Framework (ECCF) can be useful tools when developing the operational plan.
Several further steps are recommended to enable service implementation based on the operational plan, including:
When the operational plan is finalised, create a dissemination plan to make stakeholders and staff aware of the plan and its relevance.
The implementation phase lasts several years, during which the eye care strategic plan directs the actions of government and other eye health stakeholders.
Ongoing action and management is critical to ensure the plan actually gets implemented and progress towards IPEC is made.
Join a powerful, unprecedented alliance for better eye health for all.
