Do: Enabling implementation

After the national eye care strategic plan for IPEC is created, the plan is implemented.

Several further steps are recommended to enable service implementation based on a strategic plan, including:

  • publicity and awareness-raising
  • further advocacy
  • resource mobilisation
  • training
  • localised strategic planning and project management.

When the plan is finalised, create a dissemination plan to make both eye health stakeholders and non-eye health stakeholders 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.

Consider your setting

After the plan is complete, what next steps do you think would ensure successful implementation in your setting?
